Somewhere in the distance I hear the bells ring
Darkness settles on the town as the children start to sing
And the lady across the street, she shuts out the night
A cast of thousands waiting as she turns out the light

But it's too late, too late, too late
Too late for love
Too late, too late, too late

London boys are gazing, the girls go hand in hand
A pocket full of innocence, the entrance is grand
The queen of the dream stands before them all
She stretches out her hand as the curtain starts to fall

But it's too late, too late, too late
Too late for love
Too late, too late, it's too late
Too late

Standing by the trap door, aware of me and you
The actor and the clown, they're waiting for their cue
And there's a lady over there, she's acting pretty cool
But when it comes to playing life, she always plays the fool

But it's too late, too late, it's too late
Too late to love
Too late, too late, it's too late
Too late

Is it all too late?
Much too late
Can't you see it's all too late

Yea! It's too late

Oo late, too late, too late
Too late for love
Too late, too late, too late
Too late
But it's all we got

    i think the lyrics kinda mean like... that the girl always shuts the guy out. Like with the Queen and stretching out her hand.. its as if she was somehow teasing them...
