Gilbert O'sullivan – I Can Give You lyrics

There are diamonds in this world for a lady
If I had the money you'd never had enough
You don't have to understand me
When I tell you
There is only one thing I can give you

He may ask to take you with him every day
And then give you presents
You've only ever dreamed of
Though I'd take you walking with me anyway
There is only one thing I can give you

What's important to me
Is not the good times we'll have
But the bad times that end up so badly
For you
And so you see
What I want
Is not the earth to move
What on earth it prove
But a love that will make me
love that will take me for good
And I don't know why soldiers shoot to kill
And I don't know why at ease I get so ill
And I don't give a damn unless of course I do
So if you want to go with him just remember
What I say to you in spite of how I feel
Though he'll give you things
You've only ever dreamed of
There is only one thing I can give you
