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.
