"Desiree" as written by Vernon Wayne Rust and Keith Urban....
It's killin' me to write the word "goodbye"
I've wadded up and tossed a thousand tries
We both know the reason
There ain't nothing to explain
But I know that my leavin'
Will spare us both the pain

[Chorus]
Desiree I can't hold you any longer
Desiree you love his money more than me
And 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

[Chorus]

God, I love you Desiree
But I just can't take it anymore
I won't be around for your goodbye
I won't be around for your goodbye
You love his money more than me
I won't be around for your goodbye
You love his money more than me
I won't be around for your goodbye
Oh you love his money, you love it more than me
I was just a fool who couldn't see
That you love his money, you love it more than me

    General Commentomg this song made me cry cause a similar thing happened to me when a girl left me for a guy who has money!!

    This song is about a girl keith dated as a teenager and into his adulthood... the girl left him for another man who was rich *obviously stated in the lyrics* this song is his goodbye to desiree

    My favorite part is the part where keith and that one guy are singing in 2 part harmony... gives me goosebumps everytime!!

    HEY FIRST COMMENT!!
