It's not just money
It's the difference between happy, being happy and sad
It's the difference between having a home and living on the streets
That's what it is, it's not just money
It's so much more than that
Right now it's the difference between you being able to go to a prom
And disappointing a girl
Frank’s friend probably has a job, but needs to borrow money from his mother. Her being a single parent, possibly is having some trouble.
She believes money is what makes people happy due to the fact that she lacks in the area. Where as Frank is more free-spirited, money is just money. It doesn’t change anything but material things.
