It'll Have To Wait (Rawlins Cross)

Well, I know that you've got
important feelings to relate,
I'd like to help ya, baby,
but I've got a lot on my plate:
There's a guy here on the TV
picking' out a mess o' blues,
Gotta watch a fresh disaster
on the late night news;
Life ain't often easy but
sometimes you've got to choose.

As soon as I get caught up
on what's happenin' again,
I'd like to say hello to you
and ask you how you've been;
We'll chit chat later, it'll be just great,
But it'll just have to wait.

Well, I just can't decide
which one appeals more to me:
The freedom to be violent
or the mental shopping spree,
The captivating concept
meant to motivate the youth,
The hipster detective
with the gold-capped tooth,
Some confident young glamour boy
not tellin' me the truth.

I know that talkin' takes some time
and we ain't got a lot,
But everywhere I look
something derails my train of thought;
Later there'll be talkin',
discussion and debate,
But it'll just have to wait.

I'll have to wait, it'll have to wait,
I've got important things on my mind;
He is lost who hesitates,
I can't be wasting precious time.

Well, I know that I really
should communicate with you,
I'd like to help you, baby,
but I've got a lot to do:
The bad guys are escapin'
on the eastbound freight,
There's a fire breathin' dragon
burning down the castle gate;
Your little broken heart'll
just have to wait.

I hate to leave you hangin'
like a puppet on a string,
I'd just like to remind you
of the most important thing:
Better late than never,
and never's way too late,
But it'll just have to wait.

It'll have to wait, it'll have to wait,
I've got important things on my mind;
He is lost who hesitates,
I can't be wasting precious time.
