about

Although my songwriter and I are far from being rich, as the beginning of this song suggests, the deeper meaning behind our song is dealing with the loss of someone very special. The loneliness and despair that comes with the loss of a lover is apparent in this etherial tune.

lyrics

Verse 1

I gotta whole lotta money, but I ain’t got you
I gotta basket full’a lemons, but I ain’t got nothin’
A plane takes me wherever I go
I get a champagne bottle in my hotel room
But I ain’t got you
I gotta whole lotta money, but I ain’t got you
But I’m pretty sure that when I left you I had nothin’
Don’t know where I had to go
Yeah, I guess I always thought that I would come back soon
Still ain’t got you

Prechorus

I treated your love like the gambler I am
I bet it all on nothin’, hopin’ ta win
You’re my desire, baby
You are the only thing true

Chorus (half time)

But I ain’t got you
No, I ain’t got you

Verse 2

I gotta whole lotta money, but I ain’t got you
I gotta million little people always runnin’ around me
No peace wherever I go, everybody says I hope to see you soon
But I never see you
I gotta whole lotta money, but I ain’t got you
These people always tell me that I need to get past it
It just takes time, telling me they know what I am going through
But they never lost you

Prechorus

I treated your love like the gambler I am
I bet all on nothin’, hopin’ ta win
You’re my desire, baby
You are the only thing true

Chorus (half time)

But I ain’t got you
No, I ain’t got you

Outro

I gotta whole lotta money, but I ain’t got you
I gotta basket full of lemons, but I ain’t got nothin’
