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.)
