i will buy you a new life lyrics – everclear

“i will buy you a new life”

here is the money that i owe you
so you can pay the bills
i will give you more when i get paid again
i hate those people who love to tell you
money is the root of all that kills
they have never been poor
they have never had the joy of a welfare christmas
i know we will never look back
you say you wake up crying
yes and you don’t know why
you get up and you go lay down inside my baby’s room
i guess i’m doing ok
i moved in with the strangest guy
can you believe he actually thinks that i am really alive
i will buy you a garden where your flowers can bloom
i will buy you a new car, perfect shiny and new
i will buy you that big house way up in the west hills
i will buy you a new life
yes i will
i know all about that other guy
the handsome man with athletic thighs
i know about all the times before
with that obsessive little rich boy
they might think you’re happy
yeah maybe for a minute or two
they can’t make you laugh
no they can’t make you feel the way that i do
i know we can never look back
will you please let me stay the night
no one will ever know
