Queen – It’s Late


Verse 1:
You say you love me
And I hardly know your name
And if I say I love you in the candlelight
There’s no one but myself to blame
But there’s something inside
That’s turning my mind away
Oh, how I could love you
If I could let you stay

(It’s late) When I’m bleeding deep inside
(It’s late) Ooh, is it just my sickly pride?
(Too late) Even now
The feeling seems to steal away
(So late) Though I’m crying
I can’t help but hear you say
It’s late, it’s late, it’s late, but not too late

Verse 2:
The way you love me
Is the sweetest love around
But after all this time, the more I’m trying
The more I seem to let you down
Now you tell me you’re leaving
And I just can’t believe it’s true
Oh, you know that I can love you
Though I know I can’t be true
Oh, you made me love you
Don’t tell me that we’re through

(It’s late) But it’s driving me so mad
(It’s late) Yes, I know
But don’t try to tell me that it’s
(Too late) Save our love
You can’t turn out the lights
(So late) I’ve been wrong
But I’ll learn to be right
It’s late, it’s late, it’s late, but not too late

I’ve been so long, you’ve been so long
We’ve been so long trying to work it out
I ain’t got long, you ain’t got long
We gotta know what this life is all about

Tell me
Try to work it out, yeah
Woo! Ooh
Too late, yeah
Too late, much too late

Verse 3:
You’re staring at me
With suspicion in your eye
You say what game are you playing?
What’s this that you’re saying?
I know that I can’t reply
If I take you tonight
Is it making my life a lie?
Oh, you make me wonder
Did I live my life right?

(It’s late) Ooh, but it’s time to set me free
(It’s late) Ooh yes, I know
But there’s no way it has to be
(Too late) So let the fire
Take our bodies this night
(So late) Let the waters
Take our guilt in the tide, now
It’s late, it’s late, it’s late, it’s late
It’s late, it’s late, it’s late

Oh, it’s all too late
Whoa, oh, it’s too late
Come on!
I’m late, too late, oh yeah
