[Verse]

G                       Cadd9            G
I was Cleopatra, I was young and an actress
G                                                D
When you knelt by my mattress, and asked for my hand
G                                 Cadd9             G
But I was sad you asked it, as I laid in a black dress
G                                       D
With my father in a casket, I had no plans

G


[Verse]

G                                   Cadd9            G
And I left the footprints, the mud stained on the carpet
G                                                 D
And it hardened like my heart did when you left town
G                                    Cadd9           G
But I must admit it, that I would marry you in an instant
G                                                        D
Damn your wife, I'd be your mistress just to have you around


[Chorus]

          G        D     C        G     C            G          D
But I was late for this, late for that, late for the love of my life
           G   D             C   G             C        G     D
And when I die alone, when I die alone, when I die I'll be on time

G


[Verse]

G                                 Cadd9                G
While the church discouraged, any lust that burned within me
G                                              D
Yes my flesh, it was my currency, but I held true
G                            Cadd9           G
So I drive a taxi, and the traffic distracts me
G                                                     D
From the strangers in my backseat, they remind me of you

G


[Chorus]

          G        D     C        G     C            G          D
But I was late for this, late for that, late for the love of my life
           G   D             C   G             C        G     D
And when I die alone, when I die alone, when I die I'll be on time


[Bridge]

        Em                 G           C      D     Em
And the only gifts from my Lord were a birth and a divorce
         G                        Em            C      D        G
But I've read this script and the costume fits, so I'll play my part


[Verse]

G                        Cadd9             G
I was Cleopatra, I was taller than the rafters
G                                              D
But that's all in the past now, gone with the wind
G                                    Cadd9          G
Now a nurse in white shoes leads me back to my guestroom
G                                              D
It's a bed and a bathroom and a place for the end

[Chorus]

          G        D     C        G     C            G          D
But I was late for this, late for that, late for the love of my life
           G   D             C   G             C        G     D
And when I die alone, when I die alone, when I die I'll be on time

End on G
