Standing in a line
Wonder why it don't move
Tryna get a hand
Watching people break the rules
Maybe the man in charge, doesn't like my face
But then this world's not always good

And nothing's real but love
Nothing's real but love
No money, no house, no car, can beat love...

They watched us open mouthed
As we joked around like fools
See who can be the worst
Watch what I can do
But then the door gets slammed, slammed right in my face
And I guess this world's not always good

And nothing's real but love
Nothing's real but love
No house, no car, no job, can beat love...
Ooooh

It won't fill you up

No money, no house, no car, is like love...

La la la la la la la
Yeaaah

I put it all away
Holding it back for a rainy day
But what if that day don't come
I need love

No money, no house, no car, is like love...

It don't fill you up
It won't build you up
It won't fill you up

It's not love!

And nothing's real but love

No money, no house, no car, is like love...

Nothing's real but love

No money, no house, no car, is like love...

    This song expresses how love is ultimately the only thing in life that's true. It exists in the most honest form. Nothing conquers love. Love conquers all. At the end of the day when everything is gone. When you have nothing the realization of it all is you've got love.

    Rebecca ferguson should have won xfactor but in a way i'm glad she didn't because the runners up always usually appear to have a more successful career!

    I think she's talking about how in society we all try and compete to be the richest, the most successful . She does the right thing time and time again but watches people who are more immoral or less deserving than her find success. But then she realises that its all fake and phoney and that love is the real key to happiness
