Too Late Now

This song is by Yonder Mountain String Band and appears on the live album Mountain Tracks: Volume 3 (2004).

As I woke up at the dawn of the day
And I felt no one there beside me
And I felt life like a clock tickin' on
This road ahead and behind me
I knew this day would be different
Different from any I've known
I'm listenin' hard for the call
So that I can move on

But it's too late now
I'm on the highway headed for the coast
But it's too late now
I'm tryin' to beat time I suppose

As I sit still on the shining distant shore
Not sure what he was trying to say
Where's the answer that I came looking for
Surely be laying in wait for me
Some times I'm not sure what I'm doing
Riding alone in the night
Searchin' hard for the answers
Searching for the light

But it's too late now
From the highway to the street to the avenue
But it's too late now
Am I doin' what I'm supposed to do?

There's a long and winding road That's led me this far from my home
I can turn on my heels But I choose to move on
Searchin' hard for the answers, Lord
But the questions aren't comin' out right
All you know is the darkness
You pray that someday, someday, someday
Now you just might, just might, just might

Well it seems like another uneventful day
Never needed to stray so far - oh Lord
I just opened up my eyes
Looked around and realized
Everything I always wanted was in front of me
And now my days are different;
Different from days I have known
Sometimes you gotta hit the road
To wind up back home (oh back sweet home)

But it's too late now
To convince me once again to go
But it's too late now
Where I's coming home is where I belong
