This song speaks to how the inspiration we pick up through the highs and lows we go through in life will always outlast money. Make a Change!

lyrics

VRS 1
100 pennies 20 nickels
It’s never been
All about the Homer catch phrase
In my sentiment
Standing on the substance of my hope
With no evidence
When my funds is low
I keep my pockets on heaven cent
Cause dough go soon
But was stays round is knocks on Room
When Doc tells wife
That she won’t have a child from womb
Chance slim as black lives matter
Support from Tune
She looks at me
And I can see the doubt consume
Thoughts
That she will never bear
So my job as a husband
Is to dead the fear
So I looked her eyes and told he be aware
That he took us from
The Brook, to the Creek, now we Be
Do you remember?
With a nod she replied with yea
And there’s no form of currency that could get us here
But the inspiration we carried through the years
We made it through the pain
With faith and a little bit of change

HOOK
Said I don’t got a penny for your thoughts
Or a nickel for your kiss
What I carry is inspiration
Hopefully it makes sense
Change
Make a change my brother
Make a change
Said I don’t got a penny for your thoughts
Or a nickel for your kiss
What I carry is inspiration
Hopefully it makes sense
Change
Make a change my sister
Make a change

VRS 2
So whether its 4 quarters or 10 dimes
The goal is always keep it a male
Dear people
This for the ones who’s feeling under
The thunder and rain and wonder
If happiness they can plunder
See the rays of the summer
While in the place of a plumber
Draining
Hilarious now ain’t it
How often we complaining
When what we want we can obtain
If we stop under aiming
Shooting for stars
When there’s so much beyond
But where you shoot
When the lights are no longer on
Cause I done seen friends turn associates
Hope turn to hopelessness
Apartments going up into flames
I seen truth turn to lies and
Joy turn to cries
A father ‘n’ son who’s home ain’t the same
So I could focus on the negative
Really is it relative
And all in all what would it gain
Or I could focus on the hill from
Where my help come
And the inspiration will remain

HOOK
Said I don’t got a penny for your thoughts
Or a nickel for your kiss
What I carry is inspiration
Hopefully it makes sense
Change
Make a change my brother
Make a change
Said I don’t got a penny for your thoughts
Or a nickel for your kiss
What I carry is inspiration
Hopefully it makes sense
Change
Make a change my sister
Make a change

BRIDGE
Penny, quarter, nickel, dime
Half or a dollar
What I got is divine (x4)
Inspiration
