Anthrax – It's Late lyrics

(Brian May)

(Scene 1)
You say you love me and I hardly know your name
And if I say I love you in the candlelight
There's no one but myself to blame
But there's something inside that's turning my mind away
Oh how I could love you, if I could let you stay

It's late-and I'm bleeding deep inside
It's late-is it just my stickly pride
Too late-even now the feeling seems to slip away
So late-though I'm crying I can't help you but hear you say
It's late, it's late, it's late but not too late

(Scene 2)
The way you love me is the sweetest love around
But after all this time, the more I'm trying
The more I seem to let you down
Now you tell me you're leaving
And I just can't believe it's true
Oh you know that I can love you
Though you know I can't be true
Oh you made me love you
Don't tell me that we're through

It's late-and it's driving me so mad
It's late-yes I know but don't try to tell me that it's
Too late-save our love you can't turn out the light
So late-I've been wrong but I'll learn to be right
It's late, it's late, it's late but not too late

I've been so long
You've been so long
We've been so long trying to work it out
I ain't got long
You ain't got long
We've gotta know what this life's all about

(Scene 3)
You're staring at me with suspicion in your eye
You say what game are you playing?
What's this that your saying?
I know that I can't reply
If I take you tonight
Is it making my life a lie?
Oh you made me wonder
Did I live my life alright

It's late-but it's time to set me free
It's late-yes I know but there's no way it has to be
Too late-so let the fire take our bodies this night
So late-so let the waters take our guilt in the tide
It's late, it's late, it's late, it's late
It's late, it's late, it's late
It's all too late
