Too Late for Love

 

Somewhere in the distance I hear the bells ring 

Darkness settles on the town as the children start to sing 

And the lady 'cross the street she shuts out the night 

There's a cast of thousands waiting as she turns out the light 

 

But it's too late, too late, too late 

Too late for love 

Yes it's too late, too late, too late 

Too late for love 

 

London boys are gazing as the girls go hand in hand 

With a pocket full of innocence, their entrance is grand 

And the queen of the dream stands before them all 

She stretches out her hand as the curtains start to fall 

 

But it's too late, too late, too late 

Too late for love 

Yes it's too late, too late, it's too late 

Too late for love 

 

Standing by the trapdoor aware of me and you 

Are the actor and the clown they're waiting for their cue 

And there's a lady over there she's acting pretty cool 

But when it comes to playing life she always plays the fool 

 

But it's too late, too late, it's too late 

Too late for love 

It's too late, it's too late, too late 

Too late for love 

 

Is it all too late 

Much too late 

Can't you see it's all too late 

It's too late 

 

But it's too late, too late, it's too late 

Too late for love 

It's too late, it's too late, too late 

Too late for love
