sometimes it’s too late

This week’s theme for Song Lyric Sunday is forgiveness. Have you ever felt that it is the most difficult thing to do rather than saying Thank You to someone? Sorry is a difficult word, but Forgiveness is a difficult feeling. Not everyone deserves it but unless we find a way to forgive them we would be carrying the burden of that with us for a very long time. And still, even though it is in our better interests to forgive and forget, it is not as easy as it sounds. Does everyone who apologizes be forgiven? Not necessarily. Sometimes we are just humans. And that is OK.

Here is the first song that came to my mind when I read this week’s theme. Clearly, this person wasn’t getting any forgiveness from the person singing it.

Lyrics from A-Z lyrics

I’m holdin’ on your rope,
Got me ten feet off the ground.
And I’m hearin’ what you say,
But I just can’t make a sound.
You tell me that you need me,
Then you go and cut me down.
But wait.
You tell me that you’re sorry,
Didn’t think I’d turn around.
And say.

That it’s too late to apologize.
It’s too late.
I said it’s too late to apologize.
It’s too late.
Too late, oh uh (x2)

I’d take another chance,
Take a fall, take a shot for you.
I need you like a heart needs a beat,
But it’s nothin’ new, yeah!
I loved you with a fire red,
Now it’s turnin’ blue.
And you say.
Sorry, like an angel
Heaven let me think was you.
But I’m afraid.

It’s too late to apologize.
It’s too late.
I said it’s too late to apologize.
It’s too late.
Whoa!

It’s too late to apologize.
It’s too late.
I said it’s too late to apologize.
It’s too late.

I said it’s too late to apologize, yeah!
I said it’s too late to apologize, yeah!
I’m holdin’ on your rope,
Got me ten feet off the ground.


Posting it for this week’s Song Lyric Sunday.

    This song is gut-wrenching. I’ve always loved it but it is just so sad. I think there are times when sorry just isn’t enough, but the longer we hang onto that feeling, the longer we feel the pain and the hurt. Great pick and great post. Thank you!

    I also love this song – and I think I love it because it calls out disingenuous apologies. Sometimes it is too late. And saying sorry sometimes isn’t enough.
