  • Lyrics
  • Here, Andy Grammer sings about the dangers of accumulating wealth:

    I don't wanna be 85, singing
    "Oh, no, I think I missed it, I was chasing money"
    I don't wanna be 85, singing
    "Oh, no, I got a big house, but my heart is ugly"

    Grammer explained to Pop Crush: "It's about money, and you have to reconcile how you handle it and whether it controls you or not."
