Sooner Or Later - Lyrics by Alan Parson Project, The


Lyrics

Eric woolfson - lead vocal

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
