    Lyrics

    I got a message from a girl in distress
    she was a prisoner in an apartment address
    but like a hero to the scene of the crime
    I lost my way and there was so little time

    stood at a bus stop on a cold rainy day
    tire through a puddle, threw some mud in my face
    no bus arrived so I just crawled into town
    I took my chances on the underground
    subway station, wall to wall people, I couldn't squeeze onto a train
    in desperation, I looked for a taxi, but oh, the searching was in vain

    too late the hero, from ten down to zero
    too late the hero, why did she say, "boy, boy you're way too late!"?
    she said "boy, boy you're way too late!"

    I caught a train but there was nowhere to sit
    reached for a strap, I thought I heard something rip
    there on the central line, my pants fell apart
    train broke down and we were stuck in the dark

    subway tunnel claustrophobia, best suit, wrinkled and damp
    finally when I crawled up to her door, she said, "goodbye chump!"
    too late the hero, from ten down to zero
    too late the hero, why did she say, "boy, boy you're way too late!"?
    she said "boy, boy you're way too late!"

    did I see someone in the shadow? did I hear footsteps on the floor?
    did I hear laughter in the background just before she slammed that door?

    I turned around and I headed home, I was tired, rejected and cold
    missed the last train, left around midnight
    so I walked that lonesome road
    too late the hero, from ten down to zero
    too late the hero, why did she say, "boy, boy you're way too late!"?
    she said "boy, boy you're way too late!"
    (too late, too late the hero)
    way too late (too late, too late the hero)
    way too late (too late, too late the hero)
    way too late
    too late hey hey hey
