INTRO

E  F         C   E  F             C
 Everyday         on my way home

E                 F                 C
 The clouds would break and the angels
                           C(riff1)
    Would sing their refrain
E           F                C(riff1)
  This world's an ungodly place
E             F         C(riff1)
  Strangled by vines unchaste
E              F              G (let ring)
  So with my shining blade of steel
                        C(riff1)
  I would cut a path wide


  Dipped in the ink of the fight
  Written clean through the night
  Mark my words upon the front page
  To set my world straight

CHORUS
  First guitar alone : C F Bb D# G C F Bb

           C  F             Bb D#      |
  It's too late, it's too late         |   x3
           G  C             F  Bb      |
  It's too late, it's too late         |

G                       Am              C
  Just like I found it, my world is split
  C     C    C    C
  Right down the spine

(Then  something easy like the intro)

  Years bled dry now ripe for a reckoning
  My blade's back slash beckoning
  Slice my wounds and I make the sign one more time

  Come on. come on. come home. come home
  Yeah it's too late, it's too late
  It's too late, to refrain...refrain...refrain...

  Did those angels ever sing?
