you missed so many sunrises cuz you had to sleep one off you charm them all and play your hand you’re totally in control
but you’re in pretty good shape for the shape you’re in

and that the stars aren’t bright in your sky so you roll another tight to get you
through the night who’s gonna call your bluff you’re so tough but baby but baby don’t you hear the meter running like a cab baby at the end of your life who’s gonna pay you the fare baby yeah yeah

so you waste another day but Baby don’t you hear the meter running like a cab and baby at the end of your life who’s gonna pay the fare fare baby yeah you’ve been so
busy outsmarting everyone else that you did not see you could not hear you’re only cheating yourself you’re a gambler who always wins even

not see you could not hear you’re only cheating yourself cheating yourself
