     G       C          G
If I had someone that's true
         C                         G
It would thrill me through and through
       G                             D
I'd be happy, oh so happy, night and day
           G         C       G
Seems each one got a perfect mate
        C              G
But for me it's always late
       G                        D          G
And it kills my soul to hear my sweetheart say:
    D
Too late, to late
           C     G
You're too late
     D
I've waited oh so long,
        C              G
But you never did come home.
        G       C/g  G
Now you just go on alone,
D          G
You're too late
I'll build my castles high
Just to watch them fade and die
Sometimes I wonder if I'll ever find a mate
But I came looking o'er the hill
for someone, and I always will
But it just might be my fate to be too late
Too late, to late
You're too late
I've waited oh so long,
But you never did come home.
Now you just go on alone,
You're too late
