[talk] no matter how bad you think you got it. . . There’s always somebody out there that got it worse. . . Yea. . . The sun will shine again

Hook
I got one little penny left to my name and--
Cant get the sun to stop the rain but--
Who am I to complain
Who am I to complain

Verse1:
Don’t wanna sound sore, but I had my share of the downpour
Tryna keep my feet on the ground floor
I gotta speak up for what I’m down for; never been outsourced
I kept lookin until I found more
To life than this shit; materialistic kismet
Those looking for a dollar to fix it
If I need some; no money can’t buy me love
Or the family ties we from
So who am I to complain, indoors hoping that the sky doesn’t rain
Cuz I just washed my car; it’ll drive you insane
When there’s people dying for change; somewhere there’s a child in pain
Tired of trying, but he’s crying in vain
Its all trivial; when everybody’s worried ‘bout the have nots
Instead of being thankful for what they have got
For once I see a man’s worth
Cuz there’s just some things you can’t purchase

Hook

Verse2:
I’m thankful with my hands in air
I’m 26 and already had a cancer scare, yea
Its one of those things you can’t prepare for
But if you listen real close the answers there, clear
Now the sun shines brighter
I’m blind; by the time it gets hard, I climb higher
I might’ve crossed the fine line plenty of times
Send me a sign; even one penny is fine
To see light; cuz what I left don’t mean right
And every time I inhale I breathe life
It seems like we all flip when shit’s real
But who are we to question his will
Its all trivial; when everybody’s worried ‘bout the have nots
Instead of being thankful for what they have got
For once I see a man’s worth
Cuz there’s just some things you can’t purchase
