The ‘New American Dream‘ in digital form. (Mike Allen)

Too Late
by Katie Williams

You packed four and half years in an afternoon
Said I’m headed down south for a little more room
And I just stood there searching for my coat
You always were the wayward kind
Never could find that peace of mind
And I thought I could fix you with my gaze
I fell short I wasn’t able
Our love died right on the table
Doctor said it’s the worst he’d seen in years
Cuz half a decade’s way too long to love someone who’s too far gone
And only loves you back when you’re not around.

(Hear Katie Williams perform her songs today during the JJ’s Alley Sunday Songswap, which runs from the mid-afternoon into the evening.)
