penny lyrics – idina menzel

don’t know much about practicing what i preach,
don’t know how to be envious without jealousy,
don’t know how to hold my temper, when i have to get in the last word,
don’t know how to speak softly and still be heard,
but before i lose everything and everyone who loves me…

god if you’re listening would you have a message sent?
cause i need to be a better lover, brother, and a friend.
god if you’re listening would you come up with some change?
cause i wake up every morning with a penny to my name.

don’t know much about love cause i get the same cr*p from every guy,
don’t know how to see the gr*ss being greener on my side,
don’t know much about wisdom without being jaded,
don’t know how to take criticism without feeling hated,
but before i lose everything and everyone who loves me…

god if you’re listening would you have a message sent?
cause i need to be a better lover, brother, and a friend.
god if you’re listening would you come up with some change?
cause i wake up every morning with a penny to my name.

whoa man, i’m everything i said i wouldn’t be,
standing here with nothing, will you help me?

don’t know how to tell a joke without putting my foot in my mouth,
don’t know how to be intimate if i don’t have a crowd,
don’t know how to be hopeful, what if they let me down?
i don’t know how to keep myself from hurting everyone…

god if you’re listening would you have a message sent?
cause i need to be a better lover, brother, and a friend.
god if you’re listening would you come up with some change?
cause i wake up every morning with a penny to my name.

god if you’re listening would you have a message sent?
cause i need to be a better lover, brother, and a friend.
god if you’re listening would you come up with some change?
cause i wake up every morning with a penny to my name.

oh, god, i don’t know much about nothing.
no, so give me a break.
anyway, won’t anybody listen to me?
oh, oh.
