I'm holding
On your rope
Got me 10 feet
Off the ground
I'm hearin'
What you say
But I just
Can't make a sound
You tell me
That you need me
Then you go
And cut me down
But wait
You tell me
That you're sorry
Didn't think
I'd turn around
And say

That it's too late
To apologize
It's too late
I said
It's too late
To apologize
It's too late

I'd take
Another chance
Take a fall
Take a shot for you
And I need you
Like a heart
Needs a beat
It's nothing new
Yeah
I loved you
With a fire red now
It's turning blue
And you say
Sorry like an angel
Heaven let me
Think was you
But I'm afraid

It's too late
To apologize
It's too late
I said
It's too late
To apologize
It's too late

It's too late
To apologize
It's too late
I said
It's too late
To apologize
It's too late

I'm holding
On your rope
Got me 10 feet off
The ground

    This song is about a relationship that has reached its end, overall. They had their time and their mistakes, but this was the last chance. But their mistakes have broken their relationship and has damaged it so bad that it is beyond repair.
    "Its too late to apologize" - the sorries, they mean nothing anymore..

    I LOVE LOVE LOVE DAVID J. ARCHULETA! when he sang this for the finale i nearly lost my mind and it was on the same night Nick Jonas came out with his new haircut! what a night! I was a little disappointed that he didnt win after how well he did but he will go super far with his career in music!

    THIS SONG IS ONE OF MY FAVORITES, AND IM MADLY IN LOVE WITH DAVID ARCHU;ETA, AND WHEN HE SANG THIS SONG, I ALMOST CRIED. I REALLY THINK THAT HE DESERVED 2 WIN. LUV DAVID COOK 2, BUT DAVID ARCHULETA WAS SO MUCH MORE BETTER, IN MY OPINION. LUV U DAVID A.
