Can't Afford Your Love

       A song about the sometimes high cost of love, especialy when it has nothing to do about finance.

       It is presented here with Band in a Box, Reaper, Cakewalk, and Ozone 10Dave Bell of Blue Attitude played guitars, and I added bass, vocal, and keys.

Can't Afford Your Love


I can't afford your loving any longer. Emotional reserve strained.

My wallet's runnin' dry as I'm sitting in your corner

with all my budget drained.

There is somethin' in the way that you're looking at me lately

that I seem unworthy of.

I feel I cannot pay the price is costs to play.

I can't afford your love.

I can't decide if you just want to use me

to see how much I would pay

for the priviledge just to be in the presence of your beauty.

But I've got something to say.

You just keep me in your debt, but I'm charging back the interest, cuz I don't have enough

I feel I cannot pay the price it costs to play.

I can't afford your love.


I never know what I should say when you do the things you do.

I never want to spend the time. I won't invest in you.
