YOU CAN'T BUY LOVE
You can buy a mansion if you want to,
fill up the walls with works of art.
Stack it to the ceiling with your treasures,
but money won't fill up an empty heart.
You can travel all around the world,
act as if you just don't care,
bring back emeralds and diamonds by the bushel
but the emptiness will still be there
'Cause you can't buy love
and you can't buy time
and it's time you opened your eyes to see
that all the money in the world won't buy you
the one thing in the world you need.
You can buy a castle on the Rhine,
villas in Madrid and Rome.
Buy a house in every city,
but you still won't have a home
Surrounded by the rich and famous,
everybody's face is known,
every night a different lover,
but inside you still feel so all alone
You don't have to prove yourself to me
I don't care if you're rich or poor.
Your money doesn't change a thing,
I knew who you were before
