[Verse]
G
I was Cleopatra
G
I was young and an actress
G
and you knelt by my mattress
                 D
and asked for my hand
G
And I was sad you asked it
G
as I laid in a black dress
G
with my father in a casket
         D
I had no plans
(yea)

[Verse]
G
And I left the footprints
        C              G     
The mud stained on the carpet
G
and it hardened like my heart did
              D
when you left town
G
But I must admit it
             C               G
that I would marry you in an instant
G
Damn your wife, I'd be your mistress
                 D
just to have you around

[Chorus]
          G        D
But I was late for this
C        G
Late for that
C            G         D
Late for the love of my life
     G     D
When I die alone
     C     G
When I die alone
      C    G         D
When I die I'll be on time
 D G
(aye)

[Verse]
G
And the Church discouraged
     C                 G
any lust that burned within me
G
Yes my flesh it was my currency
           D
but I held out
G
When a man's dejected
            C              G
well he can fight for your affections
G
or he can act like he never met you
                   D
and even go to the ground

[Chorus]
          G        D
But I was late for this
 C       G
Late for that
  C           G       D
Late for the love of my life
         G     D
And when I die alone
     C     G
When I die alone
       C   G          D
When I die I'll be on time
 D G
(aye)

[Verse]
G
So I drive a taxi
        C           G
and the traffic distracts me
G
from the strangers in my backseat
                  D
They remind me of you
G
But it's all a daydream
          C            G
when it's you who's behind me
G
but you never recognize me
           D
appraising you

[Bridge]
Em                         G
And the only gifts from my Lord
       C     D     G
were a birth and a divorce
         Em
but I've read this script
        C       G
and the costume fits
C    D       G
so I play my part

[Verse]
G
And there are nights I wake up
       C           G
to the sound of a door shut
G
and I search on the floor but 
          D
I find no tracks

[Verse]
G
And the nurse in white shoes
         C          G
leads me back to my guest room
G
it's a bed and a bathroom
               D
and a place to relax

[Chorus]
          G        D
but I was late for this
C        G
late for that
C            G        D
late for the love of my life
     G     D
When I die alone
     C     G
When I die alone
     C          G     D
When I die I'll be on time
  D 
(aye)

[Ending]
G
