So Much for Love
Lyrics
Copyright © 2010 Jim Ferrie Music

The Nokia-shock you sent me came out of the blue
Replacin' the daily text you'd send that used to say "I love you"
Our love was like a rock, though we barely got by each year
Now I'm wondering how I missed the signs so clear

You said the Hollywood Hills and a mansion is better by far
Fortune 500 corporate style and the fully-loaded Jaguar
You said you're leavin' me's breakin' you and begged me to forgive
But I'm thinkin' regret's the one thing you'll never outlive

So do you look into his eyes the way you looked into mine?
And if you're torn by your leavin' me, will his diamonds heal your heart in time?
And if your soul is bleedin' will his fortune make you feel alright?
You made the trade and got so much for love
So much for love

So your checkin' account has gone from the red to the black
But your soul will show cracks you can't paper over with Rockerfeller's greenbacks
You're destiny's clear so keep shakin' ole' money tree
But all your millionaire's gold won't stop you dreamin' of me, I guarantee

So do you look into his eyes the way you looked into mine?
And if you're torn by your leavin' me, will his diamonds heal your heart in time?
And if your soul is bleedin' will his fortune make you feel alright?
You made the trade and got so much for love
So much for love
