A Day Late and a Dollar Short

A song about not wanting someone back; a song about learning from experience; a song about unrequited love.

This track is still in development and so has yet to reach the point of being described as a work-in-progress. Consequently, there are no video or audio clips available at this stage.

In essence, it is a song about realising that no matter how hard one person tries, and no matter how much they delude themselves, a relationship only works if both people are pulling together in the same general direction. The track looks at the situation where one party to a relationship has finally had a moment of clarity and realised that he or she was fooling himself / herself and so has walked away … only to find the other party coming back and claiming they have changed and it will all be different. As such, it is a song about not wanting someone back, a song about learning from experience and a song about unrequited love … almost a song about waking up and smelling the coffee, if you will.
