  • Come with me
    Stay the night
    You say the words but boy it don't feel right
    What do ya expect me to say
    (You know it's just too little too late)
    You take my hand
    And you say you've changed
    But boy you know your begging don't fool me
    Because to you it's just a game
    (You know it's just too little too late)

    So let me on down
    Cause time has made me strong
    I'm starting to move on
    I'm gonna say this now
    Your chance has come and gone
    And you know

    It's just too little too late
    A little too wrong
    And I can't wait
    But you know all the right things to say
    (You know it's just too little too late)
    You say you dream of my face
    But you don't like me
    You just like the chase
    To be real
    It doesn't matter anyway
    (You know it's just too little too late)

    Yeah yeah
    It's just too little too late, mm

    I was young
    And in love
    I gave you everything
    But it wasn't enough
    And now you wanna communicate
    (You know it's just too little too late)
    Go find someone else
    In letting you go
    I'm loving myself
    You got a problem
    But don't come asking me for help
    Cause you know

    It's just too little too late
    A little too wrong
    And I can't wait
    But you know all the right things to say
    (You know it's just too little too late)
    You say you dream of my face
    But you don't like me
    You just like the chase
    To be real
    It doesn't matter anyway
    (You know it's just too little too late)

    I can love with all of my heart, baby
    I know I have so much to give (I have so much to give)
    With a player like you I don't have a prayer
    That's no way to live
    Oh, mm no
    It's just too little too late
    Yeah

    It's just too little too late
    A little too wrong
    And I can't wait
    But you know all the right things to say
    (You know it's just too little too late)
    You say you dream of my face
    But you don't like me
    You just like the chase
    To be real
    It doesn't matter anyway
    (You know it's just too little too late)

    Yeah
    You know it's just too little too late
    Oh, I can't wait

    It's just too little too late
    A little too wrong
    And I can't wait
    But you know all the right things to say
    (You know it's just too little too late)
    You say you dream of my face
    But you don't like me
    You just like the chase
    To be real
    It doesn't matter anyway

  • Hope from Naperville, IlThis song is pretty good...I have Jojo's cd and it wasn't amazing but their were some interesting songs on there. This is about a boy who treated her badly, and they have the type of relationship where they break up and try and get back together again. Well, in the song she's saying, "It's too late this time."
    Jojo is talented though...
  • Michaela from Brooklyn, NyThis is the greatest song of 2006.i listen to this song everyday.I love the music so much.And from what I'v seen and read her say in some magazines,I think she's a cool youny girl.I don't know her of cource but it seems to me she's mature for her age.That's what I think, don't know.
  • Kali from Van Nuys, CaThat's exactLy what the songs about. It touches my heart When she says "In Letting you go I'm Lovin MyseLf!" That's Deep stuff!
    I know aLot of peopLe don't give her enough credit cause she's young and aLL that crap. But her aLbum is reaL good and she's an amazing singer. I can't wait tiL she's oLder and peopLe start takin her seriousLy. She's amazing!
    I Love JoJo! :]
  • Allison from An Awesome City In, CoI love this song! And yeah, I totally agree that its about a girl who's breaking up with her boyfriend. She's telling him that its too late to want her back and she's not coming back.
  • Aggie from Suva, OtherAnyone with a brain can work out the meaning of this song from the obvious lyrics. Random fact: The guy who plays her cheating bf is UCLA student Mike Zaher. Btw, JoJo's got an incredibly strong voice. Let's hope she'll last.
