TOO LATE NOW
Burton Lane/Alan Jay Lerner
Sung by Jane Powell on soundtrack
Written for the 1951 MGM Film 'Royal Wedding'
Too late now to forget your smile,
The way we cling when we've danced awhile;
Too late now to forget and go on with someone new.
Too late now to forget your voice,
The way one word makes my heart rejoice;
Too late now to imagine myself away from you.
All the things we've done together,
I relive when we're apart;
All the tender fun together stays on in my heart.
How could I ever close the door
And be the same as I was before?
Darling, no, no I can't anymore; it's too late now.
