Artist's Notes

This is a song about a guy who's got in over his head with gambling addiction and making the wrong choices in life. 

 

 


Lyrics

The Day Before Yesterday

(Verse 1)

On the sidewalk, bullets bounce

As the rain pounds down.

Punch drunk, I'm stuck at a red light

In the wrong part of this town.


A soaked wretch in a red dress

Beckons suggestively

Her matted hair clings to her face

As she propositions me

 

(Verse 2)

On a stained sheet, desire fades  

As I stare into lost eyes    

I know, none of this is all right

But I?m long out of alibis

 

A busted flush who time has crushed

Folding hopelessly

Some more coins clang on the floor

But the House ain?t done with me

 

(Chorus)
I've been racking up troubles

The stakes get bigger every day     

I?ve been dealing in troubles

And the time to throw my hand in

Was the day before, the day before, long before yesterday.

 

(Verse 3)

Smoky room, last chance saloon

High stake game of cards    

Pulled under for the third time    

By a leering shiver of sharks  

 

(Chorus)
I've been racking up troubles

The stakes get bigger every day     

I?ve been dealing in troubles

And the time to throw my hand in

Was the day before, the day before, long before yesterday.
