    Lyrics

    she said,"meet me at the gates at 8
    leave now, don't be late"
    she said one day she'd walk away
    'cause I was always late

    thought things were okay
    didn't care anyway
    say, "sorry babe
    I had to meet a mate, temptin' fate

    we first met through a shared view
    she loved me and I did too
    it's now seven fifty, gettin' ready, better be nifty
    do my hair quickly, step out, it's cloudy

    mate bells me to borrow money
    I got two Henrys and a dealer to pay
    call upon Geezers to rid these green trees of my reekin' jeans
    got a 'you think I care' air, outglarin' Geezers stares

    I'm here and I'm there
    couldn't see past the end of my beer
    what was gettin' near?
    all the silence after the cheers

    I didn't know that it was over
    'till it was too late, too late
    but if I ever needed you
    would you be there?

    she said,"meet me at the gates
    don't be late"
    but pretty soon the day came for change
    and I was glad she never walked away

    so I'm chosin' what to wear
    doin' my hear with an hour to spare
    when my life went pear
    she'd been there with a thick stare

    big wheel climbed to the top
    Geezers stares bounced off
    standin' at the top of this huge mountain
    smilin' and shoution, spring flowers sproutin'

    not one inch of doubt in my mind
    as I reached the gates
    came 'round the corner at a rate
    risked her love but I'm gonna set things straight

    never again am I gonna be late
    never again am I gonna be late
    never again am I gonna be late

    I didn't know that it was over
    'till it was too late, too late
    but if I ever needed you
    would you be there?

    I said, "meet me at the gates
    leave now, don't be late"
    I waited for a while listenin' to her voice mail
    mind set sail

    then the facs turned me pale
    wind, rain and hail
    my fears unveiled
    for my fair female

    she'd walked away
    too little too late
    I step up the pace
    walk past the gates

    rain runs over my face
    spirit falls from grace
    I purchase a hazy escape
    at the alcohol place in the chase

    sat down, I got a fat frown
    weapin' and drownin'
    my senses
    for this love game's expensive

    I walk in a trance
    got a wounded soldier stance
    the everyday geezers stares
    throw me off balance

    now nothin' holds significance
    and nothin' holds relevance
    'cause the only thing i can see
    is her elegance

    I didn't know that it was over
    'till it was too late, too late
    but if I ever needed you
    would you be there?

    I didn't know that it was over
    'till it was too late, too late
    but if I ever needed you
    would you be there?
