Too Late
Lyrics
Too Late
© 2006 Jim Gach

Been 28 for too many years
Been busy staring at my beer.
Woke up today I?m forty-eight
I?m beginning to think it?s too late.

Too late to have a family
Too late no career for me.
Too late to get life in gear
Never stopped to face my fear.
Afraid to lose so I never played
Afraid to commit no wedding day
Afraid to be accountable
I just put it off until?.

I?m Peter Pan in cowboy gear
Still afraid to face those fears
Didn?t want responsibility
Lived my life recklessly.

Sleep walking most of my life
Not caring if my path was right.
Worked so hard to outwit fate
Still the years slipped by now it?s too late.

Too late to have a family
Too late no career for me.
Too late to get life in gear
Never stopped to face my fear.
Afraid to lose so I didn?t play
Afraid to commit no wedding day
Afraid to be accountable
So I just put it off until?.


Today I?m turning 48
Maybe it is too late
Been 28 for too many years
Hell I guess I?ll have another beer.

Too late to have a family
Too late no career for me.
Too late to get life in gear
Never stopped to face my fear.
Afraid to lose so I didn?t play
Afraid to commit no wedding day
Afraid to be accountable
So I just put it off until?.

It?s too late to start a family
Too late no career for me.
Too late to get life in gear
Guess I?ll have another beer,
I guess I?ll have just one more beer.
