Anthrax – It’s Late Lyrics

(Brian May)

(Scene 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-and I’m bleeding deep inside

It’s late-is it just my stickly pride

Too late-even now the feeling seems to slip away

So late-though I’m crying I can’t help you but hear you say

It’s late, it’s late, it’s late but not too late

(Scene 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 you know I can’t be true

Oh you made me love you

Don’t tell me that we’re through

It’s late-and 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 light

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’ve gotta know what this life’s all about

(Scene 3)

You’re staring at me with suspicion in your eye

You say what game are you playing?

What’s this that your saying?

I know that I can’t reply

If I take you tonight

Is it making my life a lie?

Oh you made me wonder

Did I live my life alright

It’s late-but it’s time to set me free

It’s late-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-so let the waters take our guilt in the tide

It’s late, it’s late, it’s late, it’s late

It’s late, it’s late, it’s late

It’s all too late
