lyrics

And they say money can't buy happiness
But it's the new American Dream
And we've got these fancy credits cards
So we can buy fancy shiny things

So why do I feel so unfulfilled?
This debt can buy me a diamond ring
But without a hand to put it on
Who would need such a thing

And on those days
When I feel so far away
Like nothing in this world is made for me
I'll just smile
When I think of what you'd say
love it may be hard, but at least it is free

I may be older, and my wallets filled
But why do I feel so empty?
I may be learned, but I still haven't learned
The things that will truly make me happy

Cause this money can buy me a good many things
But life is simpler it seems
Find someone who will do you right
Someone to fill all your dreams

And on those days
When I feel so far away
Like nothing in this world is made for me
I'll just smile
When I think of what you'd say
love it may be hard, but at least it is free
