Thankful

Thankful

Jonny Lang

Someone's standing in a welfare line
Or off the freeway with a hungry sign
Someone's stressing 'bout to lose their mind
I gotta be thankful, thankful

Someone just became a single mother
Someone just lost a sister or brother
It's so important that we love each other
And be thankful, thankful

I've gotta take the time to say
That I'm thankful, thankful
For every single breath that I take
I've gotta be thankful, thankful

Someone's sitting in a prison cell
Wasting away in their own personal hell
Everybody's got their own story to tell
I've gotta be thankful, thankful

Man, I used to think I didn't have a lot
Now I realize just how much I've got
Now every day I'm gonna take the time
And stop to be thankful, thankful

Gotta take the time to say now
That I'm wanna be thankful, thankful
For every little breath that I take
I've gotta be thankful, thankful

Anyone of these so easily
Could have been me
And if it had not been for grace and mercy
Who knows where I'd be?

I've been riding on this roller coaster ride
Round and round I've seen the up and downside
And I'm here to tell you that the secret of life
Is being thankful, thankful

I've gotta take the time to say
I'm so very thankful, thankful
For every little breath that I take
Lord you know I'm thankful, thankful

Thankful, thankful
Thankful, thankful
Thankful, thankful

Thankful, thankful
Thankful, thankful
Thankful, thankful
Thankful, thankful
