Too Late For Us To See

We were friends but I just 
Could not see the truth
Wasn't looking for
Any kind of true love in my youth
Looking back at all those times
You were there for me
Having so much fun that 
I just couldn’t see
Your eyes looking back at me
Mmm it’s not that long, long ago, that I 

Was not the man you needed 
Me to be
My heart was yours forever
But I couldn’t see
Love’s a work of art 
That needs to be given free
I hope it’s not too late 
Too late for us to see

I see I want I need were my old ways
I understand why you left me standing there
I thought life was one big party each day
It hit so hard all I could do was stare.. at
Your eyes looking back at me
Mmm it’s not that long, long ago, that I

Was not the man you needed 
Me to be
My heart was yours forever
But I couldn’t see
Love’s a work of art 
That needs to be given free
I hope it’s not too late 
Too late for us to see

I miss your touch
To me it means so much
Please forgive me
Oooo we have to listen to our hearts
Lets make a brand, brand new start
We have to make it so

I’m now the man you need 
Me to be
My heart’s been yours forever
I know you can see
Our love’s a work of art 
Let’s set, set it free
I know it’s not too late 
Too late for us to see
I know it’s not too late 
Too late for us to see
