lyrics

I need the money
Of course I need the money
What else do you want me to say?
I’ll take the money
I don’t make a lot of money
Somehow I make a living this way
I’ll share the money
I don’t care about the money
That should be obvious to you
It’s not about the money
I don’t do this for the money
This is what the money lets me do

All my life, I ran the race
You don’t get gold for second place
I done with trust, I’m not naïve
Tell someone else, I don’t believe

‘Cause trust is a four letter word
The most hurtful one I’ve ever heard
The cause of all the pain I’ve incurred
Let my pride gather dust
Trust is a four letter word

I’m not famous
I’ll never be famous
No one will remember my name
My friends that get famous
Forget me when they’re famous
I probably would do the same
You say I could be famous
You say I should be famous
You tell me it’s a matter of when
If only you were famous
Then you could make me famous
And I could see my friends again

I’ve been good, maybe great
What’s that got with to fate?
I wanna cure all talk of destiny
With a healthy dose of irony

‘Cause trust is a four-letter word
The most meaningless I’ve ever heard
The concept’s completely absurd
Keep the faith if you must
But trust is a four letter word

Whatever honesty you meant is not what I heard
I spent my whole life trying to see the signs
While reading in between the lines
So now the letters L-O-V-E
Sound like F-U-C-K to me

Trust is a four letter word
The most irrelevant I’ve ever heard
My perspective is permanently blurred
Is my bitterness just?
Am I a boom or a bust?
Tell me is trust is a four letter word?
