Song Lyrics - Gold Digger

Source

There’s a girl
From long ago
I knew her well
But she had to go

Her memory
Lives in my mind
The same as when
She needed something to find

I loved her then
But she wanted the good life
She found the price for riches
Was to be a lonely wife

She thinks of me
Even to this day
She remembers how
We used to play

She falls silent
Because he’s late again
She remembers what I said
You want money or a friend?

I loved her then
But she wanted the good life
She found the price for riches
Was to be a lonely wife

Her thoughts pass mine in the night
As we lay under sheets of regret
The sun and moon live apart
But like us they never forget

I loved her then
But she wanted the good life
She found the price for riches
Was to be a lonely wife

@LVidoni5 - Thanks for reading and commenting. I was listening to an old song called Brandy on the radio and it made me want to write something. This has nothing to do with that other than a feeling....

Hello Berga - Yes it can be bitter for everyone when money is the reason for anything... it should be the last reason but so many times it's either the first reason or the only reason... Thank you..
