The Statler Brothers – It's Too Late For Roses lyrics

He came home from working late again to a table set with candles for two
And by a dying flame he hung his head in shame he forgot that she needs him too
He finds a note she left for him it said she can't do this anymore
You've done it again when will it end and who are you really working for
Don't wait till it's too late it's too late for roses
You can't say you're sorry once the flower shop closes
It's too late to miss her once another proposes
When you're pushing up daisies it's too late for roses
[ steel ]
She woke up to the smell of roses he surprised her with breakfast in bed
He said he was wrong the night was too long those three little words went unsaid
So don't take tomorrow for granted cause today just might be your last chance
Now's the time to start start thinking with your heart
And hold her like it's your last dance
Don't wait till it's too late...
Once you're pushing up daisies it's too late for roses
