i've been waiting for you,
i've been waiting for you.
what's your price?
tell me what your price is.
i've been waiting for you,
i've been waiting for you.
let's hope tonight, there is hope tonight.

talk is cheap with your words, honey.
i can smell your breath and it smells like money, girl.
but you ask for anything, you couldn't ask for anything.

call out these moneymakers, they have guns and are firing.
run down by bloody pirates whose ships we could not sink.
cease change in all directions, these mouths are worth the time.
big wallets give protection, safe pockets never lie.

talk is cheap with your words, honey.
i can smell your breath and it smells like money, girl.
but you ask for anything, did you ask for anything?

i've been waiting for you,
i've been waiting for you.
your words bank for broken tempers,
security and car alarms.
the words themselves do not mean much,
but we take to sail with open arms.
just fall at the sound of laughter,
like you've never even knew at all.
and love has what money's after,
your gold teeth have fooled us all.

treasure island's on her list of future destinations,
but little did she know, i am there as we speak,
digging for the treasure chest she buried.
its hers to own, but she's all alone...

talk is cheap with your words, honey.
i can smell your breath and it smells like money, girl.
but you ask for anything, did you ask for anything?

    General CommentHas anyone else had the thought that this might be about a prostitute? Just the impression I get, hopefully someone else out there has also had that thought or it's going to be a little awkward for me ahaha.

    General Commentloveletter, I thought about that too. Haha, I didn't realize it until I was on my way home from a Brighten concert and was like, "Whoa!" when I actually listened to the part where it goes,

    "What's your price?
    Tell me what your price is."

    And then I laughed and listened to the song over and over again, and I couldn't stop thinking about prostitutes. It's interesting really, why they might've written a song like this. Hahaha.

    My OpinionI personally don't believe this is about a prostitute.
    I think it's about someone who is a fake, deceptive, and greedy, someone who hides behind their money, or lack of.
    Their conniving ways doesn't get them anywhere, but by themselves.
