Money couldn't buy happiness

Let me tell you about a man who is severely depressed.
He learned the hard way that money can't buy happiness.
He thought he'd never be unhappy again when he won the 250 million dollar lottery.
Money couldn't buy him happiness and that was something he would soon see.

He discovered that buying that lottery ticket wasn't such a great decision.
Two weeks after winning, his wife and daughter were killed in a head-on collision.
He buried his family and now he suffers from anxiety and panic attacks.
He wants his wife and kid but those millions can't bring them back.

He's so depressed that he finds it hard just to get out of bed.
He's super rich but that can't bring them back from the dead.
He's suffering because of his loss, his poor heart is in a sling.
He won a quarter of a billion dollars and now he knows it can't buy everything.
