I Left It Too Late.



I made a really bad mistake,
I shouldn't of thought to hesitate,
Now that he's faded away,
I left it far too late.

I wish I could go back in time,
To when he was so close to me,
But now the reality of that is gone,
Theres no oppurtunity I can see.

I have no contact to talk to him,
I wish he didn't delete his email address,
But there is only myself to blame,
Now I'm so low with all of my stress.

Please everyone listen to me now,
When I say that love can't wait,
Please don't do what I did,
Never let love get too late.
