a satisfied mind lyrics – lindsey buckingham

“a satisfied mind”

how many times have you heard someone say
“if i had his money, i could do things my way”
but little they know, it’s so hard to find
one rich man in ten with a satisfied mind

once i was living in fortune and fame
everything that i dreamed of to get a start in life’s game
then suddenly it happened, i lost every dime
but i’m richer by far with a satisfied mind

‘cause money can’t buy back your youth when you’re old
or a friend when you’re lonely or a love that’s grown cold
the wealthiest person is a pauper at times
compared to the man with a satisfied mind

when life has ended, my time has run out
my friends and my loved ones i’ll leave, there’s no doubt
but one thing for certain when it comes my time
i’ll leave this old world with a satisfied mind
