It was a fair fight when our lives were in it together,
but it turned one-sided when you decided to leave.
So baby spare me your bedroom stories of all your new love affairs.
I'd love to say I'm happy for you but I'm sorry,
I'm just not there.

It's too late (it's too late),
Too late for us (it's too late for us).
When you said "we're done" guess done wasn't done enough.

Well I tried for years to get my head together,
while you cried your tears in someone else's bed.
Now I know it all happens for a reason,
like every passing season we all have to change.
And sometimes your biggest failures become your biggest saviors.
Mistakes have to be made.

It's too late (it's too late),
Too late for us (it's too late for us).
When you said "we're done" guess done wasn't done enough.
But baby it's too late (it's too late),
Too late for us (it's too late for us).
What's done is done and done is done enough.

Well I know I know you're not as strong as you like to let on,
and you'll miss me when I'm not there.
All your nights of desperation can't replace a conversation with someone who really cares.
But I guess I shouldn't blame you,
in fact I ought to thank you for helping me write this song.
If this album tops the Billboard I think I'll save a quarter to call you and let you know.

It's too late (it's too late),
Too late for us (it's too late for us).
When you said "we're done" guess done wasn't done enough.
But baby it's too late (it's too late),
Too late for us (it's too late for us).
What's done is done and done is done enough.

    i'm pretty sure it's about a chick who wants to get back with a guy but he just won't have it.
