Cornelius Brothers & Sister Rose – It’s Too Late to Turn Back Now

It’s Too Late to Turn Back Now peaked at #2 in the Billboard 100 and #1 in Canda in 1972

This was the follow-up song to “Treat Her Like a Lady” that peaked at #3 in the Billboard 100 and #10 in Canada in 1971.

From Wiki…The band was a family soul singing group from Dania Beach, Florida that formed in 1970. While the group failed to find any further success on the scale of their first two singles, two releases, “Don’t Ever Be Lonely” and “I’m Never Gonna Be Alone Anymore” reached the Billboard Top 40. Their final charting single was “Since I Found My Baby” in 1974, from their third and last album. Their records were all produced by Bob Archibald at the Music Factory in Miami.

 

Too Late To Turn Back Now

My mama told me
She said, “Son, please beware
There’s this thing called love
And it’s everywhere”

She told me, “It can break your heart
And put you in misery”
Since I met this little woman
I feel it’s happened to me
And I’m tellin’ you

It’s too late to turn back now
I believe, I believe, I believe, I’m fallin’ in love
It’s too late to turn back now
I believe, I believe, I believe, I’m fallin’ in love

I found myself wantin’ her
At least ten times a day
You know, it’s so unusual for me
To carry on this way

I’m tellin’ you, I can’t sleep at night
Wantin’ to hold her tight
I’ve tried so hard to convince myself
That this feelin’ just can’t be right
And I’m tellin’ you

It’s too late to turn back now
I believe, I believe, I believe, I’m fallin’ in love
It’s too late to turn back now
I believe, I believe I believe, I’m fallin’ in love

It’s too late to turn back now oh, baby
I believe, I believe, I believe, I’m fallin’ in love
It’s too late, baby to turn back now I tell ya
I believe, I believe, I believe, I’m fallin’ in love

I wouldn’t mind it
If I knew she really loved me too
But I hate to think that I’m in love alone
And nothing that I can do

It’s too late to turn back now
I believe, I believe, I believe, I’m fallin’ in love
It’s too late, baby to turn back now I tell ya
I believe, I believe, I believe, I’m fallin’ in love
It’s too late to turn back now
I believe, I believe, I believe, I’m fallin’ in love

Ooh, baby, I tell ya
I believe, I believe, I believe, I’m fallin’ in love
It’s too late to turn back now
I believe, I believe, I believe, I’m fallin’ in love
It’s too late to turn back now
I believe, I believe, I believe, I’m fallin’ in love

    1. I know…I like their other hit also…Treat Her Like A Lady… I covered it already…I didn’t know until I started that one…and thought it was familiar.
