Ernest Loring "Red" Nichols (May 8, 1905-June 28, 1965) a United States jazz cornet player, became one of the busiest phonograph session musicians of his era, making hundreds of recording sessions of jazz and hot dance band music. In the 1920s alone he appeared on over 4,000 recordings, working with almost every important musician of his time. Though his style of playing was influenced by Bix Beiderbecke, Nichols, an excellent sight reader, was a considered a better, more polished musician. Born in Utah, Nichols studied music under his father, a college music professor, and mastered a variety of instruments.

He's telling her to understand his love. One may think that he's broke or poverty-stricken or some thing so he only has this huge devotion to offer her. But it's not. He knows that physical materials will not last long. He can probably provide her with luxurious gems, fancy cars and premium dishes; and people may be mistaken about pursuing happiness with those. But it doesn't mean a thing if their lives together fill with tears & sorrows. Only true great love can withstand.
