lyrics

A MILLION DOLLARS

ya sat across from me
ya put yr cards on the table
you were feelin’ no relief
from the stars r the heat

there were tears in yr eyes
you were shuffling yr feet
your voice got raspy
yr face looked sweet

i will put a million dollars
in yr hands, i will
but it won’t be the money
that pays that bill

it’s all the friends in yr heart
& the light on the hill
that bring you back to earth
you can do it, i know you will

don’t run
don’t hide
your heart
is a bull’s eye

you were doin’ somethin’ simple
in the dark downstairs
+ ya burst out cryin’
don’t anyone care

to show you affection
to love who you are
to just watch tv
wrapped up in yr arms

i will put a million dollars
in yr hands, i will
but it won’t be the money
that pays that bill

it won’t be the money
