  • It's killin' me to write the word "goodbye"
    I've wadded it up and tossed it a thousand times
    We both know the reason
    There ain't nothin' to explain
    But I know that my leavin'
    Will spare us both the pain

    (Desiree), I can't hold you any longer
    (Desiree), You love his money more than me
    Now the taxi's at the gate
    I guess all that's left to say
    Is in teardrops at the bottom of the page
    "I love you Desiree"

    It'd be easier to leave if I were mad
    But it's hard to lose the best you'll ever have
    And to write this note to you
    Was the hardest thing to do
    But not as hard as bein' a poor boy
    Who can't afford a girl like you

    (Desiree), I can't hold you any longer
    (Desiree), You love his money more than me
    Now the taxi's at the gate
    I guess all that's left to say
    Is in teardrops at the bottom of the page
    "I love you Desiree"

    (Desiree), I can't hold you any longer
    (Desiree), You love his money more than me
    Now the taxi's at the gate
    I guess all that's left to say
    Is in teardrops at the bottom of the page
    "I love you Desiree"

    God, I love you, Desiree
    I just can't take it anymore
    (I won't be around for your goodbye)
    (I won't be around for your goodbye)
    Love his money more than me
    (I won't be around for your goodbye)
    Love his money more than me
    (I won't be around for your goodbye)
    Oh, you love his money and you love it more than me
    (I won't be around for your goodbye)

    Yeah, I was just a fool who couldn't see
    (I won't be around for your goodbye)
    Yeah, you love his money and you love it more than me Writer/s: KEITH URBAN, VERNON WAYNE RUST
