There was a time when I was handsome
There was a time when I had money to burn
There was a time when where I landed
Was the least of my, was the least of my concerns

But it hurts to lean back in these handcuffs
Like nine kinds of shame turned to rage
As a younger man I might have put up a fight
But I feel like such a fool at my age

Some of this trouble just finds me
No matter where I turn

So how do you know when it's too late?
How do you know when it's too late?
How do you know when it's too late to learn?

You know the number one symptom of heart disease
The number one symptom of heart disease is sudden death
It's like time stands still forever until it starts shaking around on you
Shaking around like some crazy old hooker on meth

And you know me I can't take no preaching
Not on Sunday or no other day
But I feel like I oughta be praying or something
And I have no idea what to say

Some of this trouble just finds me
Most of this trouble I earn

How do you know when it's too late?
How do you know when it's too late?
How do you know when it's too late to learn?

I've learned nothing out here on this highway
But I have been passed by
And I have passed my more than my share of cars

And I do remember my younger days
When I was so certain that driving even faster
Was gonna get me far

So there's nothing left for me to learn here
Just this half full of half empty cup
Less than an ounce of possession man
I could do that kind of time standing up

Most of this trouble just finds me
No matter where I turn

How do you know when it's too late?
How do you know when it's too late?
How do you know when it's too late to learn?
