I don't know how, I get any place
I can't see the sun with a phone in my face (x4)

I was gonna change the world
I was gonna take the plunge
I was gonna speak the truth
I was gonna be someone

I was never gonna stop
Never was I planning to
But here I am, safe and sound
So I don’t have a reason to

Money got in the way
Money got in the way
How can I complain?
When money got in the way

You were gonna take a chance
Never leave your soul to waste
You were gonna live with love
Make the world a better place

You were never gonna stop
Follow in your hearts desires
But life became the push and shove
took the spark out of your eyes


Money gave me a house full of pride
Money gave me glitter in my eyes
Money helped me live my life
But money stopped me from living it right
