All of a Sudden (It's Too Late)

by XTC

XTC was a New Wave band from Swindon, England, active between 1977 and 2005. The band enjoyed some chart success, including the UK and Canadian hits "Making Plans for Nigel" (1979) and "Senses Working Overtime" (1982), but are perhaps even better known for their long-standing critical (rather than …




What can I say? 
Why do we starve a thing that's 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 
In your hurry you've accidentally locked the gate.
