A Little Too Late

A Little Too Late




Today I bought you flowers for the first time ever


Today I got down on my knees and told you I would love you forever


Today I knew we would never have another fight


Today I prayed for God to help me walk in His Light


Today I vowed I would never have another drink and God knows I meant it


Today I chose to gaze at your beautiful face instead of the television


Today I learned you cannot go back and fix the mistakes of the past


Today I learned of both a love and pain that will forever last


Today I found out what really being sorry is all about


Today I found that with you I would have to do without


Yes all these things I learned in just one day


Lessons that really came at too high a price for anyone to have to pay


Because last night you begged me not to get behind the wheel


But I let alcohol take over and it helped me kill


My inner battle with rage spilled over and I made you get in with me


It wasn't the first time; but the last time it will be


Today my penance began for the wrongs I committed against you


For last night I lost the only one in my life that was pure and true


Just yesterday I was blind and could not see


Now I see through pain much too clearly


Last night I didn't even get to say goodbye


And that can't be changed no matter how much I cry


Today I could only say goodbye to a cold hard stone


Then turned and walked away with grief to bear alone


For today I laid you down to rest


God set it before me; but I failed the test


Yes today I learned of things both small and great


Only today was just a little too late
