Lyrics:

She was only 10 years old
When she heard her momma tell her daddy
Hidden back behind a chair
She listened as the two of them spoke softly
The words she heard she couldn't bear
Her young eyes filled up with despair
And a tear ran down her face
And the saddest words she ever heard
Too late

Too late to hold my hand
Too late to understand
Too late to have another chance
Too late to make things right
Too late to make you mine
Too late to fight for love again
Too late

Years went by and Daddy tried
To win back Momma's love, but she was broken
He came real close a few years back
When she was down and her heart was open
He said, "Baby, I can't let you go
I love you deep down in my soul"
And a tear ran down his face
And the saddest words I ever heard
Too late

Too late to hold my hand
Too late to understand
Too late to have another chance
Too late to make things right
Too late to make you mine
Too late to fight for love again
Too late

Looking down at Daddy in the funeral home
Saying bye forever, Momma stood there alone
Taking back the words from all those yesterday's
And then I felt her heart break

Too late to hold my hand
Too late to understand
Too late to have another chance
Too late to make things right
Too late to make you mine
Too late to fight for love again
Too late
