All Of A Sudden (It's Too Late) lyrics

a l l o f a s u d d e n ( i t ' s t o o l a t e )

What can I say?
why do we starve a thing thats near extinction?
from day to day
these weeds of fear are choking our conviction
life's like a jig-saw you get the straight bits
but there's something missing in the middle.
all of a sudden we find the cupboard's bare
all of a sudden we find heaven's not there
all of a sudden we find the sun's gone cold
all of a sudden we find we're more than old
all of a sudden we find that we've lost love
so please don't push or shove because
it's too late it's too late
in all your hurry you've accidentally locked the gate
what can we do?
trying to stem the flow of sand is useless.
it's up to you
start holding hands and watch the balance redress
life's like a firework
you're only lit once
and you must stand and radiate correctly.
all of a sudden we find the cupboard's bare
all of a sudden we find heaven's not there
all of a sudden we find the sun's gone cold
all of a sudden we find we're more than old
all of a sudden we find that we've lost love
so please don't push or shove because
it's too late it's too late
in all your hurry you've accidentally locked the gate.
love's not a product you can hoard
or pack a suitcase with
it's more a way you have to give.
all of a sudden we find the cupboard's bare
all of a sudden we find heaven's not there
all of a sudden we find the sun's gone cold
all of a sudden we find we're more than old
all of a sudden we find that we've lost love
so please don't push or shove because
it's too late it's too late
in all your hurry you've accidentally locked the gate.
