"Too Late to Say Goodbye" as written by and Jared Champion Daniel Auerbach....
Oh my precious ember burning, my sweet glowing light
From the moment I first saw you I was yours and you were mine
Deep down we both knew you were trouble by design
And the echo of my mother's words, "baby don't you play with fire"
I was always playing the part first love only set by a spark
There was no way changing my mind

Now I'm under your spell, trapped in a lie
Shouldn't have stood that close to the fire
No turning back, no where to run, no where to hide
It's too late to say goodbye
Push back from my heart, wish we could go back to the start
But oh my god is this real no more time
It's too late, it's too late to say goodbye

I can hear the sounds of sirens circling around
Forced to watch the ashes floating, softly drifting to the ground
Deep down we both knew it was trouble by design
And the echo of my mother's words, "baby don't you play with fire"
I was always playing the part first love only set by a spark
There was no way changing my mind

Now I'm under your spell, trapped in a lie
Shouldn't have stood that close to the fire
No turning back, no where to run, no where to hide
It's too late to say goodbye
Push back from my heart, wish we could go back to the start
But oh my god is this real, no more time
It's too late, it's too late to say goodbye

After all the dust has settled, we can settle down
Just the two of us forever, no one else around
No one else around around, around

Now I'm under your spell, trapped in a lie
Shouldn't have stood that close to the fire
No turning back, no where to run, no where to hide
It's too late to say goodbye
Push back from my heart, wish we could go back to the start
But oh my god no escape, no more time
It's too late, it's too late to say goodbye

    QuestionRight near the end there's a organ/synth line (waa-waa-wa-wa-wa-wa-wa) that I've heard somewhere else but can't place... Any thoughts?
