The little things

Every last penny is spent
Everything’s gone in the end
All that I wanted was you
But pennies were never enough

Gold in a river you wanted
Silver to cover the banks
All that I had were these pennies
So you never wanted my love

I hope that you married your treasure
I want you to feel the truth
That diamonds and pearls are not living
And pennies are always enough
