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
