A life of sanity and dignity
you know it takes two
And what´s the use in being a millionaire
if I can´t have you

I wanna buy you a home
I´ll pay your friends if you´re feeling alone
The pain of losing a guy like you
is a bigger cost than paying your dues

I can buy you oh yeah, oh yeah
but I can´t make you do what you don´t
And I can hire you oh yeah, oh yeah
But I can´t make you love me
I can´t make you...

You say I´d never go for little
and I always need more
And that you´re a thousand dollar playboy
that I just can´t afford

But I guess you´ve got me - oh oh
You´ve got me hanging around for too long
I don´t wanna stop it - oh no, oh no
I bet your life that it´s with me you belong

I can buy you oh yeah, oh yeah
but I can´t make you do what you don´t
And I can hire you oh yeah, oh yeah
But I can´t make you love me
I can´t make you care

So if I can´t make you love me
if I can´t make you care
What price can take me there
in this world
(somebody told me cash is king)

I didn´t mean to force you - oh no
but I bet a fortune it´s with me you belong

I can buy you oh yeah, oh yeah
but I can´t make you do what you don´t
and I can hire you oh yeah, oh yeah
But I can´t make you love me

I can´t make you care

I can´t take you there

anymore
