Lyrics:All Of A Sudden (It's Too Late)

by XTC

What can I say?  
Why do we starve a thing thats near extinction?    
From day to day, these weeds of fear
Are choking our conviction.     
Life's like a jig-saw: you get the straight bits 
But there's something missing in the middle.   
 
All of a sudden we find the cupboard's bare,
All of a sudden we find heaven's not there,   
All of a sudden we find the sun's gone cold,   
All of a sudden we find we're more than old ,  
All of a sudden we find that we've lost love
So please don't push or shove because   
It's too late,
It's too late.
In all your hurry, you've accidentally locked the gate.

What can we do?  
Trying to stem the flow of sand is useless.
It's up to you, start holding hands 
And watch the balance redress
Life's like a firework: you're only lit once    
And you must stand and radiate correctly.     

All of a sudden we find the cupboard's bare,    
All of a sudden we find heaven's not there,
All of a sudden we find the sun's gone cold,     
All of a sudden we find we're more than old,  
All of a sudden we find that we've lost love    
So please don't push or shove because    
It's too late,   
It's too late.    
In all your hurry, you've accidentally locked the gate.    

Love's not a product you can hoard     
Or pack a suitcase with.      
It's more a way you have to give.
All of a sudden we find the cupboard's bare,    
All of a sudden we find heaven's not there,
All of a sudden we find the sun's gone cold,     
All of a sudden we find we're more than old,  
All of a sudden we find that we've lost love    
So please don't push or shove because    
It's too late,   
It's too late.    
In all your hurry, you've accidentally locked the gate.
