Two Cents Lyrics

Words and music by Shaun Groves

So proud to call you friend
So let down you're starting up again
The same old story a thousand times told
With you the hapless damsel in distress

Am I richer than your King?
Will my two cents get you anything?

I'll give you prayers and my time
Ev'ry moment of mine
All I have is yours to spend
But if you're hoping all your tears will dry
With words that I dispense, well
There're just some things that can't be bought with my
Two cents
Still I'm so glad you call me friend
Just wond'ring when your pity parties end
When will you stop this bringing invitations
Wearing your same black party dress

Am I richer than your King?
Will my two cents get you anything?

How can I have all your answers
When I've got questions of my own?


Story Behind The Song:
I wrote this song during my time counseling students at the Methodist Children's Home in Waco , TX . A fifteen-year-old came to me with a problem I had no easy answers to. She was the product of years of abuse, shuffled from home to home and pregnant for the third time. She didn't know Jesus, she didn't know where to turn or what to do and I found myself with no easy answers for her hard questions. All I could do was commend her on wanting to keep the child, reassure her that I would be there to listen and pray and remind her that nothing can separate us from the love of God (Phillipians 4:6) . We talked, cried, and prayed together that day, and that night I began writing the song. "I'll give you prayers and my time / and every moment of mine / all I have is yours to spend / but if your hoping all your tears will dry with words that I dispense / They're just some things that can't be bought with my two cents."
