​Too Late To Run For Cover

This song is by Alvin Lee and appears on the album Detroit Diesel (1986).

The door was open, it was open wide
I took a step, I took a step inside
And it was hot, it was hotter than hell
I was looking in her face, but how was I to tell?

The price is right, you stay all night
You'll be my lover, you got yourself another
Too late to run for cover

Too late, too late to run for cover
Too late, too late to run for cover
Too late, too late to run for cover, too late

Well it was dark, it was dark as night
But there were signs and I knew I was right
She was selling love and affection
I made a move to make the right connection
I was sold, she's double gold
I'll be your lover, you got yourself another
Too late to run for cover

Too late, too late to run for cover
Too late, too late to run for cover
Too late, too late to run for cover

The price is right, you stay all night
You'll be my lover, you got yourself another
Too late to run for cover

Too late, too late to run for cover
Too late, too late to run for cover
Too late, too late to run for cover, too late

She got me hooked, it was too late to say "no"
Don't turn your back boy 'cause she won't let go
There's no mistake, you're caught in a trap
I'm in too deep now, there's no turning back
So don't be sad, it ain't so bad
You got your lover, there ain't no other
Too late to run for cover.
