Lyrics
Once I tried to eat myself alive
I wanted to know what I was like inside
In the morning every day of my life
Face in my mirror seems so surprised

And I dance by the light of the silvery moonDay late and a dollar short
That's what my momma said
Wild dreams and empty thoughts
Going through your head

Once I tried to set myself on fire
I was burning with desire
Voice of reason whispers in my ear
I see the light but I cannot hear

Naked dancers chanting in the night

Day late and a dollar short
Never was and I never will be what you're gonna be
A day late and a dollar short it's what my momma said
Wild dreams and empty thoughts
Going through your head

Day late and a dollar short
Dream on, dream on
You're dreamin'
Day late and a dollar short
Momma said
Get back to your bed
Day late and a dollar short
It's what she said to me
