"too late" as written by and Elizabeth Anne Berg....
We've been going back and forth
I'm waiting for the day you call me
I think I can do it on my own
Swinging like a pendulum
The time ticks by until it's gone
I'm thinking that
The sun has never shown

Time is gonna start
It's never gonna stop
Time is running out
Going into shock
'Cause you're
Too late
Too late
Too late
Oh oh oh oh oh

Never quite the effort-maker
I see you're not nearly ready
I think I can do it on my own
Just too late and still too little
I just seemed to miss you crawling
Never thought the day would come I know

Time is gonna start
It's never gonna stop
Time is running out
Going into shock
'Cause you're
Too late
Too late
Too late
Oh oh oh oh oh

Time is gonna start
It's never gonna stop
Time is running out
Going into shock
'Cause you're
Too late
Too late
Too late

You're too late
Too late
Too late
You're too late
Not quite
The same
Oh oh oh oh oh

    General CommentThis is my favorite song by them. The Like seriously rocks, I love them.

    I'm thinking this song is about a relationship and how the guy was too late?

    General Commenti think it's about liking someone. who is just wasting your time, unsure they like you in the same way. and about moving on.

    "crawling" = hesitation perhaps?

    General Commentthis song rocks
    i think its about a girl who likes a guy
    and the guy is hesitant towards her
    " crawling "
    and she wants him so badly, she'll do anything to get him
    but she gradually gets over him a bit at a time and she wants to make him realise that he's had his chance
    and blown it
    maybe?

    General CommentMy friend recently went through something like this with a now ex-boyfriend. At first, she loved the guy, but he just wasn't reliable. And in the end she left him for it and went on to someone more reliable.

    I think the point this song is at is when she's starting to get fed up with the boyfriend blowing her off or forgetting to call her when he said he would, and this is the last chance she's giving him. And now he's just wasted it by being late again.

    "time is gonna start
    it's never gonna stop
    time is running on"

    I interpreted this as her saying that she's through with him, and that she's going forward without looking back; time will go on with or without him.

    "just too late and still too little
    i just seem to miss you crawling
    never thought the day would come, i know"

    The sarcasm in this verse amused me. She's saying that she's never seen him actually make an effort in their relationship, that everything he's done has been at the pace of a "crawl." At this point she's amazed she hadn't broken up with him sooner.

    If anything, you can simply tell from the tone of the song that it has to be a breakup song.
