Afraid It's Too Late by Jewel Kilcher Transcribed by Adam Longfellow She sits at the window All dressed in white Been a long time since she's cried Tears called ....tumbling down She remembers her childhood brown She's afraid it's too late She steps out on the porch Takes a minute from her day Just like when she was a child To listen what the wind would say She was carefree like the children are today Say, ?? loves you, won't you come out and play She's afraid it's too late When she was a child She had crowns hiding gold With such awe, each flower she did hold And she...the grass beneath her feet How she hated things that were already late They took away her laughter They took away her crown They said "hey girl, you gotta keep your feet on the ground" She said "oh, but they are" They say "Well laughter won't pay your bills" A flower fell from her hand, falling still They taught her to be respectable Responsible somehow They taught her to be in every.... She forgot how it felt to have leaves of grass beneath her feet Now every thought screams to return to her childhood royalty She's afraid it's too late She takes one last moment Before going inside She takes a coat To dry her eye She ... and it all becomes clear It's probably laughter that gets you what you need ....More than here She's afraid it's too late La la la la la la da da laaah
