A Little Too Late

I find myself reaching out to you
Only after you?ve gone
I always find the perfect words to say
Sitting here all alone
As the hands of that old clock keep turning? around
They seal my fate
I just keep on rehearsing, learn my lines
A little too late

A little too late to tell you how I love you
A little too late to tell you how I feel
Time marches on, leaves me all alone with the perfect words
Just a little too late

I saw your picture with him the other day
In the hometown news
I just can?t gather the nerve to say
No one could love you like I do
As the bells of that old church keep echoing down
They seal my fate
Tonight I?ll lay down without you, wish I could turn back time
Just a little too late


Just like the rain falling down on a hot Texas day
After the flowers have withered and gone
Would it change anything if I told you today,
How I?ve felt all along?
