  • When I signed my deal, I felt pressure
    Don't wanna see the numbers, I wanna see heaven
    You say could you write a song for me?
    I say I'm sorry I won't do that happily

    When I go home
    I tend to close the door
    I never wanted more
    So sing with me
    Can't you see?

    I don't have money on my mind
    Money on my mind
    I do it for, I do it for the love
    I don't have money on my mind
    Money on my mind
    I do it for, I do it for the love

    I do it for the love
    I do it for the love

    Please don't get me wrong, I wanna keep it moving
    I know what that requires, I'm not foolish
    Please can you make this work for me?
    'Cause I'm not a puppet, I will work against your strings

    When I go home
    I tend to close the door
    I never wanted more
    So sing with me
    Can't you see?

    I don't have money on my mind
    Money on my mind
    I do it for, I do it for the love
    I don't have money on my mind
    Money on my mind
    I do it for, I do it for the love

    I do it for the love
    I do it for the love

    When the sun will set, don't you fret
    No, I have no money on my mind
    No money on my mind
    No money on my mind
    No, I have no money on my mind
    When the sun will set, don't you fret
    No, I have no money on my mind
    No money on my mind
    No money on my mind
    No, I have no money on my mind
    Just love

    Money on my mind
    Money on my mind
    I do it for, I do it for the love
    I don't have money on my mind
    Money on my mind
    I do it for, I do it for the love

    I do it for the love
    I do it for the love Writer/s: Benjamin Ross Ash, Sam Smith
