Big Sean - One Man Can Change The World Lyrics

[Big Sean:]
They used to tell me, used to tell me
I hope you learn to make it on your own
And if you love yourself just know you'll never be alone
I hope that you get everything you want and that you chose
I hope that it's the realest thing that you ever know
Hope you get the pretty girls, that's pretty at everything
Million dollar cribs havin' million dollar dreams
And when you get it all just remember one thing
Remember one thing
That one man could change the world
That one man could change the world

All I, all I wanted was a hundred million dollars and a bad chick
Imagined this so much, some nights it felt like that I had it
Back on the mattress
Starin' at the ceilin' tryna connect the dots
But it's hard makin' those attachments
I'm talkin' dreamin' so hard, some nights it felt like draft day, you know?
My, my step brother used to flip them bags outside the crib like it was trash day, no Kim K, but he bagged ye ye
But when you're getting fast money, slow down, don't crash
With all the drive in the world, swear you still need gas
Look, think about it, close your eyes, dream about it
Tell your team about it, go make million dollar schemes about it
Success is on the way, I feel it in the distance
Used to look up at the stars and be like ain't too much that's different
I be shinin', they be shinin', get your one shot don't you miss it
What you know 'bout wakin' up every day like you on a mission?
And I

[Kanye West:]
I hope you learn to make it on your own
And if you love yourself just know you'll never be alone
I hope that you get everything you want and that you chose
I hope that it's the realest thing that you ever know
Hope you get the pretty girls, that's pretty at everything
Million dollar cribs havin' million dollar dreams
And when you get it all just remember one thing
Remember one thing
One man could change the world
One man could change the world

[Big Sean:]
My grandma told me, "If you write your name in stone you'll never get the white out."
I grinded out that black hole then performed up at the White House
Standin' next to Jim Carrey, we traded stories then laughed
I said you not the only one I know got rich wearin' masks
Where I'm from I swear they're broke, they need way more than the cast
We need more than what you have and then we need more than that
But how am I supposed to say I'm tired
If that girl from West Virginia came up in conditions that I couldn't survive
Went to war, came back alive
On top of that became a female black captain
When being black you had to extra extra try
Way before James Brown made us proud
She bought a crib on the same street as Marvin Gaye right there on Outer Drive
And she taught me how to drive
And she raised the kids, then the kids' kids, and she did it right
Taught me how to love, taught me not to cry
When I die, I hope you teach me how to fly
All my life you've been that angel in disguise sayin'

[John Legend:]
I hope you learn to make it on your own
And if you love yourself just know you'll never be alone
I hope that you get everything you want and that you chose
I hope that it's the realest thing that you ever know
Hope you get the pretty girls, that's pretty at everything
Million dollar cribs havin' million dollar dreams
And when you get it all just remember one thing
Remember one thing
That one man can change the world
That one man can change the world

[Grandma:] Thank you for callin' me, been thinkin' about me
[Big Sean:] It's all good I love you grandma
[Grandma:] Bye

    I'm 41, bipolar, anxiety, schizoaffective, lost a great career and a great family. And I found Jesus and found myself and life is coming back together. It will for you too. Just love yourself and then love others as you love yourself. Be gentle but not a pushover. Find your way in this world, not someone else's. And pray like a true G. Love.

  14. Joshua Reynolds

    This is my song, and I think it might be yours as well. Love and God's blessings.

    One of the reasons Roblox is such a great game is that it introduces you to such inspiring significant songs to it life.
    This one is no exception.

  19. Cactus Alexx

    The call with his grandma kills me cause I would hate to lose my grandma 😭 that will change my life forever

    Rich Allspaugh

    That's a fact tho. My grandmother is the foundation, without her, everything will collapse. Definitely a grandmother's love is everything beyond what can be described as true love.

    Cactus Alexx

    Rich Allspaugh she basically raised me whole childhood while my mom worked all day. Cooked for us while taking care of my uncle who is paralyzed. She works till this day. I do my best to help her out. Let’s appreciate our grandmas while they are still here 😭🙏

  20. Destiny Hill

    Gives me chills every time, strive for greatness, perfection a mindset, be the best and happiest you that you can be

  25. Ishmael Ahadjie

    "Being black you have to extra, extra try"

    Larry Lobster

    Not trying to be mean or anything, but I don't like when people say stuff like this. I don't think life's harder for any particular person. Everyone has their own problems that life throws at you. Even if black people have a harder time getting jobs due to racism, at the end of the day, all that matters is happiness, and every race has problems staying happy.


    To add on to what Larry said..racism has succeeded if you feel powerless or like you are at a disadvantage.

  26. No Feeling

    2019: I woke up to the world and learned how to overcome everything.

    2020: Like the song says “One man can change the world” I’m going to be the man I always wanted to be and change the world.

  61. john Kwagyan

    Who els feels like this song should have way more views

  62. David Harpster

    This was the first song remotely related to rap i ever heard, it seems strange to me to think about how little i listened to different types of music back in 2015. This simple, sweet, emotional song brought me to looking for new music and not just listening to the same artists and genres. In the past decade i turned from a sheltered child to someone who is hungry for new experiences. Not gonna lie, I've never listened to the rest of Big Sean's music, but I'm very thankful for this.

  63. BallIsLife25

    I love this song sm. I wanna make it to the NBA and buy my parents a house. I’ve been so close to quitting to many times, I’ve gotten cut twice from my highschool team, I’ve bled, cried, been underestimated and have been hurt because of basketball but it’s also what brings me peace and security and helps distract me from all the negative things in life. I want basketball to be my future so bad, so many people doubt me, including myself at times, Imma keep fighting and pushing though.

    Moritz Matzke

    BallIsLife25 don’t give up my friend! Let your dreams come true🙏


    Moritz Matzke thanks man 🙏

    Max Well

    I’m a nobody but I believe in you man. I wanna see you make it.

    1 Man did change the world. Reminder that Christ loves you ♥ if He didn't forgive sinners, there would be no reason for His sacrifice 1,986 years ago (2019 - age of 33 when sacrificed = 1,986 years)

  74. Mo_ Beast209

    And she thought me had to drive

  75. thiefinthe nigh

    Listen to this song every day.. Im really destined

  76. anointed joan

    This song breaks you down more and more as it plays through but the end is what completely rips my heart out of my chest when you hear grandma saying thanks for calling and thinking about me. Reminds me of my grandma I lost, and the 1 I have left that was recently diagnosed with cancer. Cause that's all our grandparents ever want, is a simple phone call. It makes their day. My grandmother just cries from the sound of my voice over the phone or when she hears her grandkids in the background. They luv and appreciate us and only want what's best. But it also makes me think about losing my mother at a young age. I'd give anything to hear her voice again. 😔
