Lyrics


Somewhere in the distance I hear the bells ring

Darkness settles on the town as the children start to sing

And the lady 'cross 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

Too late


London boys are gazing, 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 trapdoor 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 for love

Too late, it's too late, too late

Too late


It's a little too late…

Much too late

They say it's just too late


Late it's too late…


Too late, it's too late, too late

Too late for love

Too late, too late, too late

Too late
