Looking back at what was and what should have
been, it’s always easier to stand outside of a
relationship to see why it didn’t work out but this Guy
takes the biscuit !
No matter what you do, sometimes it’s ‘too little too
late’ and things just can’t be put right.


I never let you know, I didn’t help you see.
How much I love you so, and what you meant to me.
I let you walk the floor, and worry over me.
And when you locked the door, I always took a key.
Too little too late, no matter what I do.
I can’t change our fate, it’s too little too late,
And I’ll be losing you.
I can’t change our fate, it’s too little too late,
And I’ll be losing you.
I never peeled your grape, too busy drinking wine.
Whatever made you ape, seemed like a skill of mine.
You hoped the best of me, would get our life on track.
While you were there for me, I never got your back.
It seems like yesterday, I heard you say I do.
The Preachers hair turned grey, I guess he knew me
Your Mamma tried her best, she had to have her say.
It put her faith to test, visions of judgement day.
Chorus to end.
