Queen It's Late Lyrics

Last updated: 09/23/2013 07:54:23 AM

Words and music by Brian May

You say you love me
And I hardly know your name
And if I say I love you in the candlelight
There's no one but myself to blame
But there's something inside
That's turning my mind away
Oh how I could love you
If I could let you stay

It's late - but I'm bleeding deep inside
It's late - is it just my sickly pride?
Too late - even now the feeling seems to steal away
So late - though I'm crying I can't help but hear you say
It's late it's late it's late
But not too late

The way you love me
Is the sweetest love around
But after all this time
The more I'm trying
The more I seem to let you down
Now you tell me you're leaving
And I just can't believe it's true
Oh you know that I can love you
Though I know I can't be true
Oh you made me love you
Don't tell me that we're through

It's late - but it's driving me so mad
It's late - yes I know but don't try to tell me that it's
Too late - save our love you can't turn out the lights
So late - I've been wrong but I'll learn to be right
It's late it's late it's late
But not too late

- I've been so long
- You've been so long
- We've been so long tryin' to work it out
- I ain't got long
- You ain't got long
- We gotta know what this life is all about

Too late much too late
You're staring at me
With suspicion in your eye
You say what game are you playing?
What's this that you're saying?
I know that I can't reply
If I take you tonight
Is it making my life a lie?
Oh you make me wonder
Did I live my life right?

It's late - but it's time to set me free
It's late - yes I know but there's no way it has to be
Too late - so let the fire take our bodies this night
So late - so let the waters take our guilt in the tide
It's late it's late it's late it's late
It's late it's late it's late it's late
It's all too late

aaahhh..."its late". that was my favorite Queen album. played it over and over and over, while laying on my bed staring at the art work on "news of the world" while the album kept turning. I miss you Freddie Mercury

Queen and death metal are more alike than you know, as Brian May is one of the early pioneers of tapping, which your dearly loved metal uses so much.
The difference between the two are that Queen are good and death metal on the whole is not.

OMG I luv this song and I always have, it might sound like I'm crazy, being a fan of two things so un alike such as Queen and DEATH METAL! but this song is so kick-a$$
