It's Too Late

Words & Music:

Carole King


Am7                               D6

Stayed in bed all morning just to pass the time.

Am7                                     D6

There's something wrong here, there can be no denying.

Am7                       Gm7                 FM7

One of us is changing, or maybe we've stopped trying.



BbM7                         FM7

And it's too late, baby, now it's too late,

          BbM7              FM7

Though we really did try to make it.

BbM7                 FM7              Dm7

Something inside has died and I can't hide

Dm7   FM7        E7sus4  Em7   Am7   D6   Am7   D6

And I just can't fake--- it.


It used to be so easy living here with you.

You where light and breezy and I knew just what to do.

Now you look so unhappy, and I feel like a fool.




There'll be good times again for me and you.

But we just can't stay together, don't you feel it, too?

Still I'm glad for what we had, and how I once loved you.


CHORUS:  [new ending]

Dm7   FM7        G7sus4

And I just can't fake it.

G7       CM7   FM7            CM7        FM7               CM7

It's too late, baby, it's too late, now, darling, it's too late.
