"Too Little Too Late" as written by and Steven/robertson Page....
You say "why does everything revolve around you?"
You say "why does everything I do confound you?"
You say that I pulled the world from under you
You can't go through it this time

And I could be good, and I would
If I knew I was understood
And it'll be great, just wait
Or is too little too late?

One day, this embarrassment will fade behind me
And that day I could think of things that won't remind me
But these days it's unbearable for both of us
We can't discuss it this way (this way)

I'm gaining strength, trying to learn to pull my own weight
But I'm gaining pounds at the precipice of too late
Just wait

I could be good and I would
If I knew I was understood
And it'll be great, just wait
Or is it too little too late?

Record and play, after years of endless rewind
Yesterday wasn't half as tough as this time
This time isn't hell
Last time, couldn't tell
This mind wasn't well
Next time, hope I'm
Going to be good, and I would
If I knew I was understood
And it'll be great, just wait
Or is it too little too late?
Good, and I would
If I knew I was understood
And it'll be great, just wait
Or is it too little too late?

    General Commentalright, the line "record and play, after years of endless rewind" I've always thought it was "we couldn't pay, after years of endless free wine." And I've seen it like that on some websites, and some websites like this way. I'm confused.

    Anyway, I think this song is about being in a relationship where the other person just isn't content with you some of the time, and absolutely worships you sometimes. It's written from the point of view of a guy or a girl who just want to make the other person happy, but doubts the other really understands them as a person.'

    There's my two sense, and I agree, Steven Page for president!

    General CommentI always thought it was "we're caught in play after years of endless rewind"... but I think I'm wrong. Anyway, it seems to be about two people in a relationship that really isn't working out, and one of the people wants to try and make it work, but the other person isn't helping- and besides, it may be 'too little too late'.

    General Commenta song with a lot of clapping indeed. its about a fucked up relationship. just about when things are going to completely fall apart, they try to save it, but its too little too late

    General Commenti think it's a song based on person who has mainly attracted to someone else. This other person obviously doesn't feel the same way and thinks they have no chance of being in a relationship...in that way. so this person who is trying to make things work out is and force fate upon them is saying that the pure idea of them together would result in greatnes and perfection. he/she wants to prove to the toher person that it would great---if they just gave in. however the twist in this song is doubting their fate. do they too little to base their level of relationship on or is it too late for them. has timing taken on a toll on a chance for them to embrace eachother into theirm lives.

    General CommentI've been in this situation before...

    Basically, it's about being in a relationship where you are constantly arguing with each other, you go over the same issues over and over again.

    She is continually telling him what he's doing wrong, but he never corrects it. He feels she never listens to HIS issues. He finally decides to turn it around and make himself a better person. Finally, moving forward instead of reliving the same arguments: "Record and play, after years of endless rewind"

    Unfortunately, he's realized it too late. She'll leave him and there's nothing he can do about it.
