Your love's never been better
But it's time for a decision
Before you make your mind up, hear me
This should be about love, not money
I don't want to have to apologize
Just 'cause I can drive in a better car
He says that I can only give you
You see my heart is rich with love for you
Yeah, baby
No one gave it to me
The smaller the heart will be, not true
Look at all the lovin' we do
I'm not just another player playin'
And I don't appreciate being criticized (for who I am)
Or take you anyplace
He wants you to believe that I'm tryin' to buy your love
He thinks since he's a man with nothing
No way
Or I can no longer be yours
I can't keep standing on the side
Leave him with his fallacies
Tell him that enough is enough
You've always been a willing receiver of my love
I don't want to feel like I'm penalized (for being rich)
I'm bein' my true self
He thinks I won you with materiality
And even if he understood me
I don't want to change you
So I don't want to apologize for bein' a superstar
What am I guilty of?
Maybe I can't be myself with somebody
I'm losing self-respect from trying
I don't want to have to apologize (or give a damn)
Just 'cause I can buy you a lotta things
That's just what money brings
'Cause that's what he would do
