"Sooner Or Later" as written by Alan Parsons and Eric Woolfson....
Oh what a price we pay
For the things we say
And the closer I get to you
The further you move away

All the lies we tell
In the games we play
And the longer I think it over
The harder it is to stay

Sooner or later I'll be free
To leave the past behind
Sooner or later you're gonna be
The last thing on my mind
Little by little I'm finding out
The truth behind your eyes
Maybe if I don't show
I thought you might like to know
You're gonna be the last thing on my mind

You didn't want to know
I could have told you so
But the moment I think it's over
The further there is to go

Just a little word
Such an easy way
But the longer I think about it
The harder it is to say

Sooner or later I'll be free
To leave the past behind
Sooner or later you're gonna be
The last thing on my mind
Little by little I'm finding out
The truth behind your eyes
Maybe if I don't show
I thought you might like to know
You're gonna be the last thing on my mind

    General CommentA person dealing with being spurned by a lover - kind of an "I'll be alight" in a spiteful sort of way. the opposite to "Same Old Sun", which is more of an "I'll be alright" in a more postive light.

    My InterpretationThis song is about new love and getting to know someone new. You try to say the right things, to get closer to them, only for them to move away further or play games. You start to play games too, and tell lies, and pretend you don't care.

    She doesn't seem that concerned "didn't want to know", nor wants to talk about it... but she's up for a big surprise. He's thinking - maybe it's better to just leave so she will be the last thing on his mind... no more hurt... "sooner or later" - when he gets the guts to finally leave despite maybe realizing he's falling for her.
