Lyrics

Too Late, Too long, Too Old ©2016 Karen Potje

He laid down the bottle ten years ago
But the forty before took their toll
Now he’s aching and coughing with half a smoke
Huddled out back in the cold

Has a family out east that he doesn’t know
By now they’d have kids of their own
Factory hours paid the bills but they left him broke
Wasted and whiskey-ed and one for the road

He’s just an old sinner who lived too fast
Raging, not ready to go
Left burned to a cinder and dried to ash
Too late, too long, too old

She cried when he left but he turned his back
Took all of his anger to go
And then when he missed her he couldn’t ask
Too late, too long, too old

He’s just an old sinner who lived too fast
Raging, not ready to go
Left burned to a cinder and dried to ash
Too late, too long, too old

Too many roads, each one a reason
Too much alone, too many seasons
Too many days of running away
Too late

He laid down the bottle 10 years ago
Too late, too long, too old
Too late, too long, too old
