Afford To Love You

I’ve been poor
poor, poor me
Work myself to the bone
Just to get by
I ask myself why?
Baby, I don’t say much
But this much is true
I can afford to love you
For the rest of my days
There I’ve gone and changed my ways
I can afford to love you
Even to my last cent
The essence of you
Buried inside this heart of mine
Is worth more to me than this song
I’ve written
Girl, you’ve gone and got me believing
I can afford
I can afford
I….can…afford to love you.
