Mama told me to be happy, 'cause you always get what you want
Don't speak, you said I have your love, but not how much it will cost
Mama told me, when I was a baby, I'd love you but I don't
Don't speak, I hope you're happy, 'cause I think I paid what you owe

And by the time I grew your love had been sold to everyone else but me
And maybe when I'm old and speaking lingo you will be willing to see

And we'd be so clean
Trying to colour in this hole but it's too dark
And I've been holding
This little stone cause you said it was your heart

How much does your love cost? (x4)

I'm not a soldier, not a fighter
But I will stand my ground
And now I'm older, I'm not your daughter
You don't deserve my love now

And by the time I grew your love had been sold to everyone else but me
And maybe when I'm old and speaking lingo you will be willing to see

And we'd be so clean
Trying to colour in this hole but it's too dark
And I've been holding
This little stone cause you said it was your heart

How much does your love cost? (x4)

And I'm the best thing you ever had, but you're too busy burning fires (x4)

How much does your love cost? (x7)

    My InterpretationA song about a daughter and her father, who has never truly been in her life, or in and out of it. She wonders how much it would cost to receive his love.
