It's Too Late

Carole King

It's Too Late Lyrics

Stayed in bed all morning just to pass the time
There's something wrong here, there can be no denying
One of us is changing
Or maybe we just stopped trying


And it's too late, baby, now it's too late
Though we really did try to make it
Something inside has died
And I can't hide and I just can't fake it, oh no no no

It used to be so easy living here with you
You were light and breezy and I knew just what to do
Now you look so unhappy and I feel like a fool

And it's too late, baby, now it's too late
Though we really did try to make it
Something inside has died
And I can't hide and I just can't fake it

{Instrumental}

There'll be good times again for me and you
But we just can't stay together, don't you feel it, too
Still I'm glad for what we had and how I once loved you

But it's too late, baby, now it's too late
Though we really did try to make it

Something inside has died and I can't hide
And I just can't fake it
Oh no no no

It's too late, late
It's too late, now darlin
It's too late...

About “It's Too Late”

Arguably Carole King’s most popular song (and the competition is fierce). It was released as a single and topped the charts in April, 1971. Ironically, it was displaced as No. 1 by another one of Carole King’s songs – James Taylor’s version of You’ve Got a Friend.

It won the Grammy award as Record of the Year in 1972.
One of the many jewels in Tapestry.

One of the few songs in the album where the lyrics were written by another person – Toni Stern.
