The Money Tree (Blue October)

I'm standing on an open world I've got to try so hard for myself Now including the ones that I love I call my family It's not hard when your focus is a beautiful girl A brand new baby. She's a baby girl And yeah, she's a cutie like her mommy Uh, yes, yeah, she looks like her mommy We both know who we are And I'm not changing a thing I've never changed before If loving me is work, I'm not a job to take I think we're heading for the crazy making heartbreak I'm wondering why I'm sitting here alone again Why you always crush me Why it's never easy Easy, easy, easy. It's not easy This is you. This is me You won't be a part of what we need to be Not for me. For the future of us three For our daughter, college, family Sudden health emergencies You think it's easy picking money off my money tree? With two houses, both cars I paid off your credit card debt Did you already forget? You threat and threat and threat Just fucking leave. Find a man who will put up with you We both know who we are And I'm not changing a thing I've never changed before If loving me is work, I'm not a job to take I think we're heading for the crazy making heartbreak I can't help but think of how great you are with the baby daughter Half the time a single mother When I go away, it is so you can always stay home And let your baby grow. Bring her up the right way You never take it that way We both know who we are And I'm not changing I need support, not a slap in the face You have to trust me or I'm sure it'll blow up in your face I'm in love with such an angel and she doesn't even know We've taught each other a thousand ways we don't even know We both know who we are And I'm not changing a thing I've never changed before If loving me is work, I'm not a job to take I think we're heading for the crazy making heartbreak I can't help but think of how good you are with the daughter Half the time a single mother When I go away, it is so you can always stay home And let your baby grow. Bring her up the right way I must be the one who has his daughter's future at heart As you're the one who never wants a family apart We both know that together we can only believe That if we could be, there should be no reason to leave
