"Too Late For Goodbyes" as written by and Julian Lennon....
Ever since you've been leaving me, I've been wanting to cry.
Now I know how it feels for you, I've been wanting to die.
But it's much too late for good-byes, yes, it's much too late for good-byes.

Time has gone since I've been with you, and we've been starting to die.
Now it seems you don't care for me, and I don't understand why.
But it's much too late for good-byes, yes, it's much too late for good-byes.

Ever since you've been far away, I've been wanting to fly.
Now I know what you meant to me, I'm the one who should cry.
And it's much too late for good-byes, yes, it's much too late for good-byes.

Ever since you've been leaving me, I've been wanting to cry.
Now I know how it feels for you, I've been wanting to die.
And it's much too late for good-byes, yes, it's much too late for good-byes.

    General CommentI always thought the song was about a relationship too - one between him and a girlfriend that failed. However I recently saw the video (didn't watch too much TV back in the day) which made me rethink that. In the video which is filmed on a stage with the band, there is doorway with white background lighting. A person is seen playfully at times going from side to side, and the person has the look like his Dad did in the 70's - long hair, a beard - - so now I am not sure if its only about a girl. Perhaps the video was filmed that way and the lyrics are general enough that it could be about the end of a romantic or parental relationship. A recent breakup with a girlfriend could have easily been the inspiration of the song but the person dancing in the doorway could easily represent John and his playful spirit. Either way, I find it to be a catchy, simple, yet powerful song.
