An Interest Kept To Keep

It's not what you've got in your pockets,
You want me to find.
But it's all up in your mind,
And the time that you give is mine.

I want to know when you're with me,
You'll stay focused.
With it shown and noticed...
To share an interest kept to keep.

Whether you had millions or a rusty dime,
It would matter more if you could use your mind.
And we would spend the time together knowing we'll find,
An interest kept to keep.

Don't give me nonsense without logic.
Or waste my time losing energy.
Give me something I need wont leave,
With an interest kept to keep.

It's not what you've got in your pockets,
You want me to find.
But it's all up in your mind,
And the time that you give is mine.

Don't waste my time with a bunch of nonsense.
And logic you want believed.
It's my mind that's more in need,
Of an interest kept to keep.
