"Too Little Too Late" as written by Ruth Anne Cunningham, Billy Steinberg and Joshua Berman....
Come with me
Stay the night
Just say the words but, boy, it don't feel right
What do ya expect me to say?
(You know it's just too little, too late)
You take my hand
And you say you've changed
But, boy, you know your begging don't fool me
Because to you it's just a game
(You know it's just too little, too late)

So let me go now
'Cause time has made me strong
I'm starting to move on
I'm gonna say this now
Your chance has come and gone
And you know

It's just too little, too late
A little too long
And I can't wait
But you know all the right things to say
(You know it's just too little, too late)
You say you dream of my face
But you don't like me
You just like the chase to be real
It doesn't matter anyway
(You know it's just too little, too late)

Yeah, yeah, it's just too little, too late, mhm

I was young
And in love
I gave you everything
But it wasn't good enough
And now you wanna communicate
(You know it's just too little, too late)
Go find someone else
In letting you go
I'm loving myself
You got a problem
But don't come asking me for help
'Cause you know

It's just too little, too late
A little too long
And I can't wait
But you know all the right things to say
(You know it's just too little, too late)
You say you dream of my face
But you don't like me
You just like the chase to be real
It doesn't matter anyway
(You know it's just too little, too late)

I can love with all of my heart, baby
I know I have so much to give
(I have so much to give)
With a player like you, I don't have a prayer
That's no way to live
Oh, mmm, no
It's just too little, too late
Yeah!

It's just too little, too late
A little too long
And I can't wait
But you know all the right things to say
(You know it's just too little, too late)
You say you dream of my face
But you don't like me
You just like the chase to be real
It doesn't matter anyway
(You know it's just too little, too late)

You know it's just too little, too late
(I can't wait, no)

It's just too little, too late
A little too long
And I can't wait
But you know all the right things to say
(You know it's just too little, too late)
You say you dream of my face
But you don't like me
You just like the chase to be real
It doesn't matter anyway
(You know it's just too little, too late)

    General Commentand what i think this song means is the guy is a player and like she sick of hanging around waiting for him. basically he's like a sweet talker. she falls for him everytime he does something sweet. but he doesnt keep it up and just throws her away. and then he wants her back. and she says she doesnt want him back. well im not sure. but its just my opinon.

    General Commenti think that this song means that this guy jumps from girl to girl to girl and doesnt really care about there feelings that much. he can sweet talk his way into just about any girls life and he's sweet talked his way into her's 1 to many times. he's in a way 2 faced, one minute he's the sweetest guy she knows, then he's a total jerk and leaves her in the dust. then he tries goin back to her again and again, and finally she says no, and she realizes that he aint worth it. he aint worth the pain and the suffering. he broke her heart too many times and decides to say no. i hate it when guys do that! (no effence to the nice guys out there!)

    General CommentI think it means just like ''jeNN uhh fEr'' said.that the guy is a player. He sweet talks and she falls for it. Then he throws her away like every other girl. After that he wants her back and she doesn't want him anymore because she knows his games.I just saw the video today =] ! Really good song. Not really what i usally go for but still great!Whats really interesting is the guy she is dating is a soccer player.And the guy in the video is too. ( Wow and i heard this on tv =] ) Yup Yup =]!

    General CommentThis can't be about her and Freddy, because it didn't make the cut for the first album, and she wasn't with Freddy when she was 13.
