I Don't Want Your Money

Album: No. 6 Collaborations Project (2019)
  • Ayy
    I waited for you all day

    I been away on the road for a little while
    Today I'm headin' home to make my baby smile
    She hates it when I am over a thousand miles
    Away, and I'm not there to pick up when she dials, yeah
    She's always lookin back, and sayin' "There was a time
    When you would be around every single night
    Now, I'm not sayin' that I want another guy
    But I need you here for the good times, and the bad times
    Yeah, the pullin' out my hair gettin' mad time
    Not just when I'm in your bed on my back time
    'Cause baby every time I call it's a bad time
    Just want you here on your own"

    There ain't no diamonds, silver or gold
    That can replace a man's love in a home
    And she keeps tellin' me over and over

    She say, "I don't want your money, baby, oh
    You know, I just want your time"
    She say, "I don't want your money, baby, oh
    You know, I just want your time"

    I used to be around more, but I was strapped for cash
    And that's not attractive, workin' my ass off
    Tryna make a success outta myself, I guess
    I couldn't be more present, but I was in a mess
    I remember bein' on tour, stayin' up on the phone
    Thirty minute conversation, "Boy, when you comin' home?"
    I can't be buildin' a family life here on my own
    Baby, I'm doin' it for us, so why you takin' that tone?
    Like I'm the bad guy
    I thought it would've made me better in your dad's eyes
    I'm busy stackin' up the paper for the bad times
    'Cause, baby, you never know
    I'm poppin' right now, but there will come a day when I won't

    There ain't no diamonds, silver or gold
    That can replace a man's love in a home (yeah)
    And she keeps tellin' me over and over

    She say, "I don't want your money, baby, oh
    You know, I just want your time" (want your love, your time)
    She say, "I don't want your money, baby, oh
    You know, I just want your time" (I just want your, I just want your time)

    You know you're my baby (you know you're my baby)
    I'm sorry I been away, yeah, no lie
    Boy, you drive me crazy
    Why you gotta mess with my mind?
    You know you're my baby (you know you're)
    I'm sorry I been away, yeah, no lie
    Boy, you drive me crazy, you know

    You know, I don't want your money baby, oh (I don't want your money)
    You know I just want your time (yeah, I want, yeah, I want your time)
    She say, "I don't want your money baby, oh (I don't want your money)
    You know, I just want your time" (time, time)

    And I love, and I love, and I love you
    Yeah, I love, and I love, and I love you
    And I love, and I love, and I love you
    But I want your time, oh
    Want your time, time Writer/s: Fred Gibson, Anthony Paul Jefferies, Edward Christopher Sheeran, Joe Stephen Reeves
