I wish you could see me
All broken down this way
But even if you saw me, baby
I know I still couldn't make you stay

And you know that high cost of loving
Is something you're gonna have to pay
Oh, you're gonna have to pay

A woman like you need fine things
I knew it from the start
And I don't have much to offer
Just this old broken heart
Just this old broken heart

But if heartaches was nickels
And oh, I wouldn't hear you cryin' in the dark
Cryin' in the dark

And if wine and pills was one hundred dollar bill
I might keep you satisfied
If broken dreams was limousine
I'll take you for a ride

But all I can do is think of you
And wish you was by my side
And if heartaches was nickels
I'd be the richest fool alive

And oh, baby, if wine and pills
Was hundred dollar bills
I might keep you satisfied
And broken dreams was limousines
I'll take you for a ride

All I could do is think of you
And wish you was by my side
And if heartaches was nickels
I'd be the richest fool alive, oh baby
The richest fool alive
Oh, I wouldn't be cryin' in the dark
