I’m a wealthy girl 

Living in a spoiled world 

Who’d pay anything

To wear your promise ring.

I miss your ribboned gifts

Sealed with a special kiss

And it’s funny, because all the money

Couldn’t buy it in a store. 

I bought a diamond pool 

To collect the tears you stole,

Sometimes I swim in it

Because memories of us still live in it.

You were my perfect gem

Til you said, “Let’s just be friends.”

Love’s worth its weight in gold

But your love just can’t be sold.

This time it cost too much

To say goodbye to your touch 

Suddenly I’m not rich enough

To afford your pricey love.
