Here Are the Lyrics to Cole Swindell's 'Love You Too Late'

Robby Klein
Cole Swindell

Cole Swindell is saying I “Love You Too Late” to his ex in his Billboard Hot 100-charting single. Filled to the brim with regrets and Tennessee whiskey, the lyrics spell out an apologetic declaration for Swindell’s love.

The music video further highlights his remorse by depicting his love interest, played by actress and stuntwoman Kachina Dechert, as a high-speed driver who performs doughnuts around the country singer before he imagines her stepping out of the vehicle and facing him. He tries to brush her cheek, but she vanishes into thin air because he’s too late -- their relationship has already run its course.

Check out the wistful lyrics and action-packed music video below.

I wish this whisky
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, 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

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, won't pick up the phone
While I'm dying here tonight
Staring goodbye in the face
Saying I love you too late
Too late

I can't take back what
I never said but
If I could, man I would

Try and make her see
That me and Tennessee want her back
I wish it worked like that, yeah

If I had half a clue
Where she was heading now
I'd do what I had to do
To make her turn her car around

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, won't pick up the phone
While I'm dying here tonight
Staring goodbye in the face
Saying I love you too late
Too late

Yeah I shoulda held her close
I shoulda let her know
How I felt about 'er
'Bout a couple county lines ago

She's out there rolling down some old interstate
Wide open, wide open, I couldn't make her stay
Probably cranking up some new freedom song

Wide open, wide open, won't pick up the phone
While I'm dying here tonight
Staring goodbye in the face
Saying I love you too late
Too late, yeah

Yeah I love you too late

I can't take back what
I never said but
If I could, damn I would
