A Day To Remember – Only Money Lyrics

Only Money Lyrics – A Day To Remember

My momma called me
And said “son it’s Nonne
I’m sorry to tell you your grandmama passed”
Took me back to the moment
Watchin’ The Sound of Music
In your living room
Before you read me to bed

I know now but I didn’t then
These were moments building a man
None of us had much and you showed me what that means

It was only money
Cost me some family
Cost me some friends
It was only money
Doesn’t define me
I can’t pretend
Taught me ’bout resentment
About forgiveness
No matter what path lies ahead
Taught me ’bout judgement
About what love is
That family’s family till the end
It was only money

A few days before that
I got a message from my aunt that said you weren’t doin’ too well
We scrambled to call you to show off the baby
My wife and I had just brought into the world

I got chills as we said goodbye
Somehow I knew it was the last time
I’m usually gone for work
But nothing’s worth missin’ memories

It was only money
Cost me some family
Cost me some friends
It was only money
Doesn’t define me
I can’t pretend
Taught me ’bout resentment
About forgiveness
No matter what path lies ahead
Taught me ’bout judgement
About what love is
That family’s family till the end
It was only money
It was only money

If you can hear me
I’ll always picture you at the piano
Singin’ your songs
Just know there’s so many lessons you left me I’ll always carry along

It was only money
Cost me some family
Cost me some friends
It was only money
Doesn’t define me
I can’t pretend
Taught me ’bout resentment
About forgiveness
No matter what path lies ahead
Taught me ’bout judgement
About what love is
That family’s family till the end
It was only money
It was only money
It was only money
It was only money
It was only money
