But baby, I've been, I've been praying hard
Said no more counting dollars
We'll be counting stars
When making this song, lead singer told Billboard:
I felt a responsibility to actually write and sing about things that have a level of human gravity to them. If everybody else sings about sex and love and lust and money, then somebody’s gotta be singing about life and faith and hope and things of that nature.
Remember the happy times you had as a kid not worrying about money. Remember trying to count the stars. He wants that feeling again!
