​Money and the Ego

This song is by Carly Rae Jepsen and appears on the album Tug of War (2008).

Make my house of bricks,
And I'll stick here when the world,
Comes crashing down around me.

Make your arms a willow tree,
And you can bend with me,
Anywhere that I am going.

Sometimes it's hard to see,
Anything lovely,
All the people around me going for,
Money and the money and the egos

How can you ask me why?
I need to know before I try,
I've got to be sure there's more than,
Money and the money and the ego.

Keep your eyes on me,
And I'll look to you so I can see,
What I am here for,
Pull the wool over my eyes,
Please kiss this day goodbye,
Only you can get me going.

Sometimes it's hard to see
Anything lovely
All the people around me going for
Money and the money and the egos

How can you ask me why?
I need to know before I try
I've got to be sure there's more than
Money and the money and the ego

Giving up is all you've got
And giving up all you want
You hear yourself say you've lost the will, the power.

Giving up is all you've got,
And giving up is all you want,
But don't be afraid to sit down in your shower,
Stay in there for hours.

Make my house of bricks,
And I'll stick here when the world,
Comes crashing down around me.

Sometimes it's hard to see,
Anything lovely,
All the people around me going for,
Money and the money and the egos

How can you ask me why?
I need to know before I try,
I've got to be sure there's more than,
Money and the money and the ego.

(Got to be sure there's more)
Money and the money and the ego,
(Got to be sure there's more)
Money and the money and the egos.
