Millionaires Submit Correct Lyrics

Yo, I know what I'm tryna say is on the tip of my tongue
It's like my thoughts have been erased, that's all as if I was dumb
I should of met her when she asked, I was out getting plastered
She waited for my speech but the cat got my tongue

Acting like I've gone and won at the Oscars, speechless
Careful with my words there's no way I can cheat this
Lost 'em again, now someone give me a pen
I need to write these lessons down and maybe give 'em to friends

I can't promise that I won't be a fool again
But I never had cruel intentions
Put me in detention as long as you want
Then you'll see

There's a million words but it's never enough
I say, 'I love you', 'I'm sorry' but still I get stuck
If I had a coin for every time, we could be millionaires
But you don't need the diamonds
'Cause I got a million ways to show you that I care

She isn't in it for the cash flow, the girl's independent
She don't expect pendants or remnants or necklaces
She only wants to trust me and don't want to fuss me
But all of this depends on whether I behave recklessly

I never meant to lie to her, the truth wouldn't hurt
But I just dig myself into a hole and she goes berserk
Lost it again, who'd have thought that us men
Would break down when we fell and behave like we're 10?

I can't promise that I won't be a fool again
But I never had cruel intentions
You put me in the dark house as long as you want
Then you'll see

There's a million words but it's never enough
I say, 'I love you', 'I'm sorry' but still I get stuck
If I had a coin for every time, we could be millionaires
But you don't need the diamonds
'Cause I got a million ways to show you that I care

I should be raising the bar high, avoiding the bar low
I'll write a million songs for you as if I was Barlow
'Cause you're my Bridget Bardot, my precious cargo
I'm tryna speak my mind but I don't get very far though

Say something inappropriate and look like a fool
In my head it sounded funny but your face says it all
I'll probably lose you again for a day, maybe 10
We're broken for a minute, doesn't mean it's the end

There's a million words but it's never enough
I say, 'I love you', 'I'm sorry' but still I get stuck
And if I had a coin for every time, we could be millionaires
But you don't need the diamonds
'Cause I got a million ways to show you that I care

There's a million words but it's never enough
I say, 'I love you', 'I'm sorry' but still I get stuck
If I had a coin for every time, we could be millionaires
But you don't need the diamonds
'Cause I got a million ways to show you that I care
