Cole Swindell Drops ‘Love You Too Late’ as Next Single [LISTEN]
The first verse of "Love You Too Late" opens up by telling a story of regret and missed opportunity -- "I wish this whiskey would / Make her miss me / Like I wish she did / I wish she did / Pouring up another one / Won't change what I should've done / Before she left / Before she left / Now all that's left is / Mile by mile and city by city / She's getting over me, and, man, it ain't pretty, no" -- before leading into a driving chorus.
"She's out there rolling down some old interstate / Wide open, wide open / Couldn't make her stay / Probably cranking up some new freedom song / Wide open, wide open," Swindell sings. "Won't pick up the phone while I'm dying here tonight / Staring goodbye in the face / Saying 'I love you' too late."
The video that accompanies "Love You Too Late," which Swindell shared in July, prior to the release of his album, follows the object of Swindell's lyrical remorse. She's packed her bags and is catching a bus out of town, meeting up with a female friend for a freedom ride on the back of a motorcycle.
Written by Swindell, Michael Carter and Brandon Kinney, "Love You Too Late" is a breakup song true to Swindell's trademark style. It leads the track listing of All of It; the 12-track album dropped on Aug. 17 and also includes the single "Break Up in the End," which Swindell released in February.
