​A Day Late, A Dollar Short

This song is by Hanoi Rocks and appears on the album Twelve Shots on the Rocks (2003).

Late at night as I lay down to sleep
I think of all the secrets people keep
Like how I feel for you
Do you feel it too
Or is it something we have to resume

We're just two people watching time fly by
In a world in it's obvious decline
But we are young and strong
We can carry on
Find a little Paradise of our own

'Cause no one saves the day
It's no one else's fault
If you're a day late or a dollar short

Just think about how lovely life could be
Excluding all the man-made misery
If we're too far behind
And really out of time
Is there another world they plan to find?

Too many dreams of youth
That we never caught
Just a day late or a dollar short

We're all just lonely people
Only dyin' to fall in love

Feelings that we thought
Dreams we never caught
Just a day late or a dollar short

All the loneliness, the blues
Feelings so distraught
When you're a day late or a dollar short

Too many dreams of youth
That we never caught
Just a day late or a dollar short

And no one saves the day
It's no one else's fault
When you're a day late or a dollar short
