about

Written near High Park in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.
A friend cringed when I first played the freshly written version, so I hid it away until I felt I could prove otherwise. That took 7 years. And I went looking for new friends.

lyrics

POST-DATED CHEQUE
(S. Puchalski)

I can jump over your fence, babe
Like a young boy half my age
I can pick up, leave and run, babe
Easier than I could stay
I’ve never been one to stay

You said I wouldn’t know what to do

But I thought of you all of the way, babe
From Appalachia to the Black Hill mines
Where the sidewalks are diamond-paved, babe
And I brought that lie home to you
A crime that a child would do

I wouldn’t know what to do
I wouldn’t know what to do with this real life
In your dream house

So I sail across the ocean for a kick in the teeth,
A pretty thief’s kiss, a bed or just one dime
If the world’s spinning round then life’s a gamble
And I’m waiting for a hand that I can lay down

I got a late apology, babe
I got a post-dated cheque
And I’m twenty miles of rough road, babe
So please don’t let me go
Please don’t let me go
