A diamond ring, a smile, a house, a car, a love song, or a best friend.
A mink coat, an enormous bank account, what's it all worth in the end?
Wedding vows that meant more to you than they ever meant to him,
All I ever wanted was a normal life and a white house with painted trim.
Diamonds and gold, what is it worth to HEAR him say "I love you"?
Or would you rather SEE what it it that he'll really do?
What is something worth to you, do you value materialistic things?
Or are you like me, and want what is free in life, and all the happiness it brings?
To me, I value a smile and a laugh from either, or both of my boys.
Rather than a man that can buy me expensive jewelry, I'd rather have the simple joys.
