How can you come with me
When you knew all along that you had to go

How could you watch me sleep close to you
Pretending not to know
How could you memorize my name
And forget who I am

How could you think you're still the same
Believing I can
REFRAIN:
It's too late to start pretending
It's too late for a new beginning
Later than the sunset
Later than the rain
Later than never
To love you again
How could you ask for more
Than an innocent smile
Trust in me to stay
How could you close the door
And leave me here
Supposing I'm okay

How could you break down my disguise
And uncover my fears
How could you look into my eyes
Ignoring my tears
Repeat REFRAIN
Yeah, yeah
Oh
It's too late
Lawrence

    the guy was clearly in deep pain. they never should have met and loved each other if it were all for nothing...

    this is one of the most sentimental songs i've heard but it moved me everytime i hear it. the person was somehow regretful of the circumstances and at the same time a confession of his deep love for someone...but time is too late.
