Def Leppard - Too Late For Love w/Lyrics

Def Leppard is one of the more popular bands of the 80's and has several hit power ballads recorded, and I eventually will build videos for many Def Leppard songs. "Too Late For Love" just happens to be one of my favorites, even though I really don't know for sure what it's about. In my research, the best I could find was an interview Greg Prato of Songfacts had with Joe Elliott. When asked about "Too Late For Love", Elliott only commented, "It's a brilliant piece of arrangement, it's a good bit of writing, it's a great lyric, it's a brilliant piece of music." "By the time we went back to Europe to do the end of the world tour, they decided they wanted to go to radio with "Too Late for Love," but we weren't really in any kind of a position to make a video for it. Plus, there was this feeling amongst us like, "It's a fourth single, but it's just being put out there for the sake of it. It's only being released because of the success of the first three." He never mentions anywhere that I can find what the song is actually about. 

But since there was never a video for "Too Late For Love" ever built, other than live performance footage. This was an easy choice for me to take a crack at it. I created this video merely based on the lyrics as lateral, and built it as a Medieval times Victorian story of betrayal and infidelity of a virgin princess that was to become Queen, after being betrayed, she renounces her crown and departs. A new princess is chosen to take her place, but is beheaded for having a child from the brother of the prince. In the end the rightful princess is returned to take her place on the throne as a Queen without a King. It's the best I could come up with for only a 3 minute and 30 second song. Hope you all enjoy it.
