Money or love, which one are you doing it for?
Everybody has to make that choice sometime, you know
Something is wrong, I can tell the feeling is gone
Do you still remember when we started long ago?

Wasn't it love that kept us all driving in a rented car?
Who could've known that endless road would ever have come this far?

Money or love, it's your decision where to draw the line
Everybody has a soul they can control or compromise
When did you start putting a price upon the pain in your heart?
When did I become the reason for the sadness in your eyes?

You could've asked me anytime, I would've told you why
Maybe I might have changed your mind, but now it's too late to try
Goodbye

Often I have asked myself
Could I have been closer to you
When you needed someone else
Could a friend who really knew you try help you decide

Money or love, tell me what ya gonna do with your life?
Everybody needs a passion or they cash in while they can
Make up your mind, before you realize you've run out of time
You need a reason why, you've got to justify to make your stand

You could've asked me anytime, I would've told you why
Maybe I might never change your mind, but now it's too late to try
Goodbye

Money or love

Wasn't it love that kept us all driving in a rented car?
Who could've known that endless road would ever have come this far?
Was it money or love?
Money or love?
Was it money or love? Money or love?

Money or love? Money or love? Money or love?
Was it money or love? Was it money or love? Was it love...?
