It's Too Late
Carole King Lyrics


Stayed in bed all mornin' just to pass the time
There's somethin' wrong here, there can be no denyin'
One of us is changin', or maybe we've just stopped tryin'

And it's too late, baby, now it's too late
Though we really did try to make it
Somethin' inside has died
And I can't hide and I just can't fake it
Oh, no, no, no, no, no
(No, no, no, no)

It used to be so easy, livin' here with you
You were light and breezy, and I knew just what to do
Now you look so unhappy and I feel like a fool

And it's too late, baby, now it's too late
Though we really did try to make it
Somethin' inside has died
And I can't hide and I just can't fake it
Oh, no, no

There'll be good times again for me and you
But we just can't stay together, don't you feel it, too?
Still I'm glad for what we had and how I once loved you

But it's too late, baby, now it's too late
Though we really did try to make it
Somethin' inside has died
And I can't hide and I just can't fake it
Oh, no, no, no, no, no

It's too late, baby
It's too late now, darling
It's too late

You were light and breezy, an' I knew just what to do
Now you look so unhappy, and I feel like a fool

And it's too late, baby now, it's too late
Though we really did try to make it
Somethin' inside has died, and I can't hide
And I just can't fake it, oh, no, no

And I just can't fake it, oh, no, no, no, no, no

It's too late, baby, it's too late now, darling
It's too late

This was "Album of the Year" when I graduated High School in 1971. I'll be 70 before I know it, yet this song STILL takes me back to a very bittersweet time in my life! An incredibly special "Best Friend' (whom I'm still "Best Friends" with to this day, albeit separated by 3000+ miles), cruising in my '71 Mazda RX-2 and paying just 25 cent a gallon for gas, a girl I was MADLY in love with, (who died all too young from a brain tumor), all the while living in a very tumultuous and emotionally destructive home environment that was 'fueled' nightly by all too much alcohol. To quote from Dickens' "A Tale of Two Cities", "It was the best of times, it was the worst of times..." Memories that cause me to smile through my tears.....

Wow I know music has the power to take us back to a specific time.. it’s so amazing.. sometimes sad because we know we can’t go back to those simpler times… I’m only 47 but I totally relate to what you said… I was lucky to have grown up in a household where they played the very best music🤗🤗🤗

I want an emotionally intelligent playlist. Maybe Long Long Long can go on the breakup version too?

April, 2021. It's been officially 50 years since this song got released as a single and it still hasn't lost it's classic sound. Happy 50th anniversary to her It's Too Late song!
