Millionaires

Album: Won't Go Quietly (2010)
  • Yo, I know what I'm tryna say is on the tip of my tongue
    It's like my thoughts have been erased, that's all as if I was dumb
    I should of met her when she asked, I was out getting plastered
    She waitin' for my speech but the cat got my tongue

    Acting like I've gone and won at the Oscars, speechless
    Careful with my words there's no way I can cheat this
    Lost 'em again, now someone give me a pen
    I need to write these lessons down and maybe give 'em to friends

    I can't promise that I won't be a fool again
    But I never had cruel intentions
    Put me in detention as long as you want
    Then you'll see

    There's a million words but it's never enough
    I say, 'I love you', 'I'm sorry' but still I get stuck
    If I had a coin for every time, we could be millionaires
    But you don't need the diamonds
    'Cause I got a million ways to show you that I care

    She isn't in it for the cash flow, the girl's independent
    She don't expect pendants or remnants or necklaces
    She only wants to trust me and don't want to fuss me
    But all of this depends on whether I behave recklessly

    I never meant to lie to her, the truth wouldn't hurt
    But I just dig myself into a hole and she goes berserk
    Lost it again, who'd have thought that us men
    Would break down when we fell and behave like we're 10?

    I can't promise that I won't be a fool again
    But I never had cruel intentions
    You put me in the dark house as long as you want
    Then you'll see

    There's a million words but it's never enough
    I say, 'I love you', 'I'm sorry' but still I get stuck
    If I had a coin for every time, we could be millionaires
    But you don't need the diamonds
    'Cause I got a million ways to show you that I care

    I should be raising the bar high, avoiding the bar low
    I'll write a million songs for you as if I was Barlow
    'Cause you're my Bridget Bardot, my precious cargo
    I'm tryna speak my mind but I don't get very far though

    Say something inappropriate and look like a fool
    In my head it sounded funny but your face says it all
    I'll probably lose you again for a day, maybe 10
    We're broken for a minute, doesn't mean it's the end

    There's a million words but it's never enough
    I say, 'I love you', 'I'm sorry' but still I get stuck
    And if I had a coin for every time, we could be millionaires
    But you don't need the diamonds
    'Cause I got a million ways to show you that I care

    There's a million words but it's never enough
    I say, 'I love you', 'I'm sorry' but still I get stuck
    If I had a coin for every time, we could be millionaires
    But you don't need the diamonds
    'Cause I got a million ways to show you that I care Writer/s: Elliot Gleave, Alex James Smith
