Lyrics of Before Too Long

Before too long
The one that you're loving
Will wish that he'd never met you
Before too long
He who is nothing
Will suddenly come into view

So let the time keep rolling on
It's on my side
Lonely nights will soon be gone
High is the tide

Before too long
We'll be together
And no-one will tear us apart
Before too long
The words will be spoken
I know all the action by heart

As the night time follows day
I'm closing in
Every dog will have his day
Any dog can win
Shut the shade do no fear anymore
Here I come creeping round your back door

Before too long
I'll be repeating
What's happened before in my mind
Before too long
Over and over
Just like a hammer inside

As the nighttime follows day
I'm closing in
Every dog will have his day
Any dog can win
Before too long
Before too long

'Before Too Long' was the first single released by Paul Kelly and the Coloured Girls from their debut double album, 'Gossip'. The single was released in June 1986 and reached #15 on the Australian singles charts. The song was a surprise hit for Kelly at a time when chart success eluded him and provided increased interest for the release of 'Gossip', which would become his biggest mainstream success to that date.

The success of the single can partly be attributed to the accompanying video, which was directed by John Witteron, depiciting Kelly as a long suffering cab driver dealing with a night shift full of eccentric passengers.
