Delta Goodrem – Billionaire Lyrics

I didn't drink till I was twenty-seven
The day I went to numb the pain inside me
The emptiness was showing
The hate around me growing
I thought I had to bury my self worth
The boulevard of broken dreams was building
The whiskey kept on turning into wine
Some people started asking 'Oh where was all this going?'
They tried to pull the wool over my eyes
I've always been the lady
And that always saved me
I had to see the other side
My mama said 'Go marry rich, girl
It' ll take your problems all away'
But I lead life with my heart
And the world's not always fair
I'm gonna make myself that billionaire
I've never been impressed with money or power
'Cause I thought I'd be the one to rule the world
So many men would tell me
It would be the gifts they gave me
But that just don't make them my Mr. Right
My name is Delta Lady
Can't try to change me
I'll give you many reasons why
My mama said 'Go marry rich, girl
It' ll take your problems all away'
But I lead life with my heart
And the world's not always fair
I'm gonna make myself that billionaire
He said, 'Baby hold my hand'
I'm not your baby, understand
I'm gonna need a grown-ass man
Who takes me for who I am
My mama said "Go marry rich, girl
It' ll take your problems all away"
But I lead life with my heart
And the world's not always fair
I'm gonna make myself that billionaire
Shake that wannabe
You're only gonna end up lonely
He's not good, you see
The real ones love unconditionally
Shake that wannabe
You're only gonna end up lonely
