His Kind of Money (My Kind of Love) - Eric Church

This is a new country single. So new that I had to find a live performance of it on youtube and then write down the lyrics myself (so bear with any typos please). But I heard it and... well, it struck a cord. Though probably not the one that is assumed.....

His Kind of Money (My Kind of Love) - Eric Church
I bet you the wine is fine
And I bet you the diamond is real
And I bet you his house is a big one up on the hill
That's where he's got me girl
Not that I blame you at all
No, don't say you're sorry
Just go and have you a ball

Chorus:
Cause I ain't got his kind of money
And I probably never will
But I got a buck that says
His twenties and his hundred dollar bills
Ain't gonna satisfy you forever
They can only buy so much
I ain't got his kind of money
But he ain't got my kind of love

Who's gonna bait your hook?
Who's gonna get lost in your eyes?
Who's gonna throw that ball
That's gonna wins you the prize?
And who's gonna kiss you goodnight?
And make it last all night long?
And who's gonna be there when he's always gone?

Chorus:
I ain't got his kind of money
And I probably never will
But I got a buck that says
His twenties and his hundred dollar bills
Ain't gonna satisfy you forever
They can only buy so much
I ain't got his kind of money
But he ain't got my kind of love

He can buy you all he wants to
But girl I ain't sold
So keep my number handy
Because I think we both know......

Chorus:
I ain't got his kind of money
Truth is I probably never will
But I got a buck that says
His twenties and his hundred dollar bills
Ain't gonna satisfy you forever
They can only buy so much
I ain't got his kind of money
But he ain't got my kind of love

No I ain't got his kind of money
But you're gonna miss my kind of love

I know that I am probably wrong, but it almost sounds to me like the one with the money is TyRoy, and I am the one that ain't got crap but my love for you, and even though I have lost you, I will always love you, and I do hope that you will always keep my number handy, cuz you know that I will always come back to you, all you have to do is say the words.

Yeah, like I wrote, it probably isn't the one assumed. Actually, it struck me that BT can spend all the money he wants on me, which he does. He spends lots and lots and lots of money on me. But then there isn't money for real life, which is rent and car payments and bills and IRAs and bullshit like that. TyRoy might not spend alot of money on me and our biggest night out so far might have been going to see the movie The Bank Job and going to Chili's for dinner, but it was a great time and was just as good as anything else. I don't need the money spent on me. I need the security that having money brings, whether it is alittle money stashed away for a rainy day or a big savings account and mutual funds, etc. And, in my mind, at least at this point, saving that money to take care of yourself and those you care about it your life shows more love than buying them a million things ever could.
