Too Late


My breath hangs

A frozen sound

Their blades bite the icy ground

A man in black says some pretty words

Claps my back and then heís gone


Itís too late, itís too late

The summer fled it left us to the rain

Itís too late, itís too late

All the promises lie broken in vain


Itís late at night

Iím on your street

Asphalt puddles around my feet

I stand alone under street-lamp glow

I know the way but I canít go back


Itís too late, itís too late

I knew you could not take the pain

Itís too late, itís too late

The winter came it left us standing naked

Naked in the rain


Theyíre taking it down and theyíre boarding it up

The house that we knew when we were growing up

But youíre still inside


All the silences stretched over the time we shared

We knew our lines, we were so damn prepared

But we just couldnít face to say that I love you


Too late, itís never too late

To run with the dogs and chase away our fears

Too late, itís never too late

To say the words we all needed to hear


My prayer hangs

A frozen sound

Flowers litter the muddy ground

On your windowsill the candle flickers still

Twigs scraping against the slate

But itís just too late
