Too Late

Written by Eric Woolfson and Alan Parsons

When you were standing in the rain I gave you shelter

When I was knocking on your door you gave me none

Well I don't make that kind of deal with anybody

And I won't be that kind of fool for anyone


How do you feel when the tables have been turned?

What will you do now the bridges have been burned?


Cause it's

Too late now the magic's lost

Too late now the spell is broken

Too late now to count the cost

Of words that should remain unspoken


When I need you by my side you stand above me

And when I look into your eyes you turn away

Well if that's the best there is then I won't buy it

Well if that's the only game then I won't play


How many danger signs did you ignore?

How many times have you heard it all before?


Cause it's

Too late now the magic's lost

Too late now the spell is broken

Too late now to count the cost

Of words that should remain unspoken
