Mortaljive: The Rest is Silence

There is no still point in all the Universe, and that is the rock upon which I stand

Too late

too late in the day to wonder
too late in the day to cry
too late in the day to plunder
too late to say goodbye

too late in the day to get the worm
too late to be first in line
too late to be original
too late for the sun to shine

too late to leave the planet
too late to stop the rain
but i ain't gonna worry none
i ain't gonna complain

too late to catch the 509
too late to shoot the stars
too late to be invincible
too late to close the bars
but i was on time for you
i looked up and you grinned
i walked across the street for you
when you show up you can win
when you show up you can win

too late to be an astronaut
too late to be a king
too late to the governor
and make them kiss my ring

too late to be a big tycoon
too late to rule the world
but i met you just in time
you're my diamond and my pearl
you're my diamond and my pearl

too late to catch the 509
too late to shoot the stars
too late to be invincible
too late to close the bars
but i was on time for you
i looked up and you grinned
i walked across the street for you
when you show up you can win
when you show up you can win

too late in the day to wonder
too late in the day to cry
too late in the day to plunder
too late to say goodbye

for donna
