BOY ACOSHA
TOO LATE
(Julian Hoffmann, Catriona Blanke)
Some people cry
and some people don't
Wind raps on souls
and dampens preacher’s words
Two wives for learning
and one for love

Now it's too late
to say goodbye
now it's too late
And when the rain
washes sludge and shelter away
all those black birds are gone
That slate-grey chapel
no glory, no pride
but still it's strange
why can't we go inside?
Now it's too late
to say goodbye

Passels of people
never met and never will
A chat here and there
Carry on, carry on
While a little girl
is humming my song
Yellow jelly tarts
and pastries in pink
offerings for a commune
just longing for warmth
And the yonder lady
shouldn't say no single word, no
Now it's too late to say
to say goodbye
now it's too late no no no
And when the rain
washes sludge and shelter away
all those black birds are gone
Two old ladies’ voices
so shrill and so frail
Could a single song
make someone calm?
And now it's too late
to say goodbye
