"A Day Late" as written by and Joseph Milligan (16580) Steven Arnold (16579)....
So let me get this straight
Say now you love me all along?
What makes you hesitate
To tell me in words what you really feel?

I can see it in your eyes you mean all of what you say
I remember so along ago saying I felt the same way
Now we both have separate lives and lovers (and lovers)
Insignificantly enough we both have significate others

Only time will tell
Time will turn and tell

We are who we were with
Could've been lovers but at least you're still my day late friend
We are who
We are who we were with
Who knew what we know now
Could've been more but at least you're still my day late friend
We are who
We are who we were with

What thoughts they change and times they rearrange I don't know who you are anymore
Lust come and go and this I know I'm not who you recall anymore
But I must confess you're so much more then I remember
Can't help but entertain this thought
Thoughts of us together

We are who we were with
Could've been lovers but at least you're still my day late friend
We are who
We are who we were with
Who knew what we know now
Could've been more but at least you're still my day late friend
We are who
We are who we were with

My day late friend

So let me get this straight
All these years and you were no where to be found
And now you want me for your own
But you're a day late and my love just still renown

We are who we were with
Could've been lovers but at least you're still my day late friend
We are who
We are who we were with

Who knew what we know now
Could've been more but at least you're still my day late friend
We are who
We are who we were with

    General Commenti really dont think this song means that he was like "oh welll she had her chance" i think he still did love her but by the time they both realized they wanted to be together it was too late. They could have used to been lovers but now things are different. theyre different. but only time can tell what will happen. for now they will be good friends.

    General Commentno...just because they're a christian band doesn't mean all their songs are about christianity...i'm a christian, but it's not like everything in my life is an allegory about my religion.

    General CommentTo me, this sounds like a guy and a girl secretly loved each other in the past but they never admitted it. The guy got over it, and both of them found new loves and moved on. Now, however, the girl is back in the guy's life, and he's remembering what he really liked about her in the past, but he knows it's too late for them to be together, although she doesn't want to accept that. She's his "day late friend" because they can't be together.

    General Commenta couple corrections:

    `say now you loved me all along` not `all alone`

    `insignificantly enough we both have significant others`

    sorry, i have no idea what he's saying at the end of the bridge.

    General CommentI believe as well that it's "You're still my daily friend." To explain the title of the song, "..Now you want me for your own / But you're a day late.."
