Charted: 6 5
  • Ever since you've been leaving me, I've been wanting to cry.
    Now I know how it feels for you, I've been wanting to die.
    But it's much too late for good-byes, yes, it's much too late for good-byes.

    Time has gone since I've been with you, and we've been starting to die.
    Now it seems you don't care for me, and I don't understand why.
    But it's much too late for good-byes, yes, it's much too late for good-byes.

    Ever since you've been far away, I've been wanting to fly.
    Now I know what you meant to me, I'm the one who should cry.
    And it's much too late for good-byes, yes, it's much too late for good-byes.

    Ever since you've been leaving me, I've been wanting to cry.
    Now I know how it feels for you, I've been wanting to die.
    And it's much too late for good-byes, yes, it's much too late for good-byes. Writer/s: JULIAN LENNON

  • Barry from Sauquoit, NyOn January 5th 1985, Julian Lennon performed "Too Late for Goodbyes" on the ABC-TV program 'American Bandstand'...
    And fifteen days later on January 20th, 1985 it entered Billboard's Hot Top 100 chart at position #52; and eight weeks later on March 10th, 1985 it would peaked at #5 for one week...
    The day it peaked at #5 on the Top 100 it reached #1 {for 2 weeks} on Billboard's Adult Contemporary Tracks chart...
    On the same 'Bandstand' show he also performed "Valotte"; and at the time it was at #10 on the Top 10, then the very next day it would peak at #9, for one week...
    John Charles Julian Lennon will celebrate his 52nd birthday in three months on April 8th {2015}.
