Bad Check

I thought you knew better
Then to come to me again
You’ve played this card before
And I’m no longer your friend

I thought you knew better
Then to come to me like this
But you’ve got nobody else
You’re on the edge of the abyss

I thought you knew better
But I guess that I was wrong
I can’t erase the past
Life just rolls along

You wrote me
A bad check
But you’re gonna pay

You wrote me
A bad check
Like the night gives way to day

You think that money (money!)
Grows on trees
But you're gonna pay

You think you can do
What you please
But you're gonna pay
(Hear the 909 play)

You tell me what you did
Then you tell me what to do
You say that it’s so hard
This life you're living through

But if you don't have your word
Then you are truly poor
If you don't understand by now
Well I can't tell you more

I see you for who you are
Not for who you want to be
You act like a user
Trying to feed off of me

It easy enough to see
That the well is running dry
Can't get blood from a stone
Don't care how hard you try
