"In My Pocket" as written by Randall M. Barlow, Emilio Jr. Estefan, Liza Quintana and Gian Marco Zignago Alcover....
Among the many muted faces
You try to find me in the spaces
You're drawn to my song
You only move to keep from sinking
You close your eyes as if your thinking
Afraid all along
That in my eyes you're so revealing
You'll find what you're needing

Nothing but pennies in my pocket
Nothing but faith to keep me warm
But, baby, then I'd be broke without it
Tell me, how much for your love

Hoping the melody will leave you
You walk to where I might not see you
Reach out to the wind
Looking to catch it for a minute
But just to hold it not be in it
I've been where you've been
Cause some how I'm so afraid the love will reveal what you're made of

Nothing but pennies in my pocket
Nothing but faith to keep me warm
But, baby, then I'd be broke without it
Tell me, how much for your love

Nothing but pennies in my pocket
Nothing but faith to keep me warm
But, baby, then I'd be broke without it
Tell me, how much for your love

Cause somehow I'm so afraid the love will reveal what you're made of

Nothing but pennies in my pocket
Nothing but faith to keep me warm
But, baby, then I'd be broke without it
Tell me, how much for your love

    General CommentFor some reason, this song reminds me of a Prostitute. I don't know why, maybe it's the:
    "Tell me how much for your love" bit.
    But every time I hear it, this mental image of Mandy leaning against a street lamp, all decked out in sleazy clothing pops into my head. It's enough to make anybody laugh.

    My InterpretationThis song is real cool. As far as the meaning goes, I see it like this; this guy is drawn to the narrator (Mandy) but is too afraid to make a move. But Mandy, with nothing but pennies in her pocket, has faith that he will finally make a move (this keeps her warm). She doesn't want to lose faith, because she'd be "broke without it". She wonders what she has to do to get this guy to do something ("how much for your love").
