"Too Little Too Late" as written by and Douglas Sean/estrin Robb....
I've been so long in waiting
Putting my life on hold for this
Chance to live out my dreams

You think you know what I should
Do with the choices I now have
Make them benefit you

[Chorus]
What if, I don't, want to hear the things you say?
Where were, you when, I was needy yesterday?
You want, in with me, now that it's good
But it's too little too late

Time and again I've asked you
Just for some light to show the way
I was in total darkness

You act like I owe you something
But I don't owe anything to anyone but me
Have you no dignity?

What if, I don't, want to hear the things you say?
Where were, you when, I was needy yesterday?
You want, in with me, now that it's good
Where were you yesterday?

[Chorus]

You're too late

I know exactly what I'll
Do with the advice you gave
Watch me throw it all away

What if, I don't, want to hear the things you say?
Where were, you when, I was needy yesterday?
You want, in with me, now that it's good
Where were you yesterday?

[Chorus]

But it's too little too late
But it's too little too late

    General CommentI think this song is about trying to meet someone else's expectations to make them happy but only to drive yourself insane. Putting life on hold for someone else because that person is your dream kinda thing. Then it's too late when we realize it's a waste of time.

    General CommentI think this song is about how when the band weren't famous no one wanted to know them and now that they are, those same people are all around them "Where were you yesterday?"

    General Commentthis song is about how materialistic snotty preppy girls that wanted nothing to do with you can suddenly be all over you if you make it big time. however, the guy is nobody's fool and tells her that he won't fall for her bullshit- its too late to start a relationship.

    My OpinionI personally view this as just a guy and girl situation. When the guy was going through rough times she didn't want to deal with it and left but when he got through it himself she came back to him and he's wondering: Where were you when I actually needed you??? It's too late to come crawling back now.
