"A Day Late and a Dollar Short" as written by Green Gartside and David Gamson....
A day late
and a dollar short
Who'd have believed it?
Yeah, who'd have thought?
Done deal
You blew it all
You wouldn't listen
When the time was called
Cause 'enough is enough' is a tough one
And one of us better just say (better say)
A day late and a dollar short

You promised to be true to the word
Like some empty thought
You come a day late and a dollar short
I wonder where the truth will be found
I found what I sought
Around a day late and a dollar short
(a day late and a dollar short)
(a day late and a dollar short)

Bottom line
well I'll go without
two minutes you girl
Go figure out
At long last
We're getting smart
You can follow the cash
I'll follow my heart
Tell me why would I ever believe you?
Why shouldn't I ever just leave you?
A day late and a dollar short?

You promised to be true to the word
Like some empty thought
you come a day late and a dollar short
I wonder where the truth will be found
I found what I sought
Around a day late and a dollar short

A day late and a dollar short
A day late and a dollar short

You must sail
with the dispossessed
In the setting sun
With the second best
And the first to fail
As you may have guessed
Is just having fun
nothing more or less
A day late and a dollar short

You promised to be true to the word
Like some empty thought
you come a day late and a dollar short
I wonder where the truth will be found
I found what I sought
Around a day late and a dollar short

You promised me a star with a moon
But the love that I sought
Is love a day late and a dollar short
I wonder when the love's gonna change
I'm struck by the thought
That life's a day late and a dollar short
A day late and a dollar short
