No Doubt's Too Late

Return Of Saturn, the 2000 follow-up album to No Doubt's Tragic Kingdom. It had less of that upbeat ska and reggae, and was for me, musically a better end-to-end album than Tragic Kingdom.

One song that immediately won me over was Too Late. Seems to have the same musical footprints of Don't Speak, or maybe it's that C minor key signature. Whatever the case, they're good songwriters.

I don't think I'll be able to articulate the many extents to which Too Late is such a great song, so here are just the chords:

Intro / Post-chorus
Gsus4 , G | Ab-5 , Ab

Verse
Fm7 , Bb-5 | Ebmaj7 , Cm7 | Gsus4 , G | Ab-5 , Ab

Pre-chorus
Ab , Cm | Bb , F9/A | Fm7 | G7aug5

Chorus
Fm7 , Ddim | C | Ab | C
Fm7 , Ddim | C | Ab | Db

Bridge
Cm | G7 | Eb | F7
Ab | G | G



By the way, Don't Speak's chords are:

Verse
Cm | Gm | Fm | Bb
Gm | Cm | Fm | Bb
...
Cm | Gm | Fm | Bb
Eb | Bb | C | C

Chorus
Fm | Db | Eb | C
Bbm | C | Fm | Db , C

Bridge
