Too Late - Lyrics by Alan Parson Project, The


Lyrics


(lead vocal - lenny zakatek)

When you were standing in the rain i gave you shelter
When i was knocking on your door you gave me none
Well i don't make that kind of deal with anybody
And i won't be that kind of fool for anyone

How do you feel when the tables have been turned?
What will you do now the bridges have been burned?

Cause it's
Too late now the magic's lost
Too late now the spell is broken
Too late now to count the cost
Of words that should remain unspoken

When i need you by my side you stand above me
And when i look into yuor eyes you turn away
Well if that's the best there is then i won't buy it
Well if that's the only game then i won't play

How many danger signs did you ignore?
How many times have you heard it all before?

Cause it's
Too late now the magic's lost
Too late now the spell is broken
Too late now to count the cost
Of words that should remain unspoken
