GRATEFUL

Tanos Chavez / Angie Chavez / Tom Gonzalez / Eva Gonzalez / Charlie Hodge / Ashley Hodge // Brian Oberley / Kaitlyn Oberley / Buck Rogers / Wendy Rogers / Chris Simpson / Sarah Simpson / Darden Smith / James House / Maia Sharp
Too many rocks in the rucksack
Too many calls on the line
Finally realized that burden
Didn’t have to be all mine

It’s okay to look back just don’t stare
It took a lot of long walks to get me here

Grateful that I made it home
Grateful that I am not alone
Grateful I’m not sinking like a stone
Grateful to hear you breathing next to me
Grateful we have everything we need
Grateful just to be
Grateful, grateful

We are all full of butterflies
First kiss all over again
Don’t know whether to laugh or cry
Cause I miss my best friend

It’s okay to be nervous, a little awkward and shy
It all goes away when I look you in the eye

Grateful that I made it home
Grateful that I am not alone
Grateful I’m not sinking like a stone
Grateful to hear you breathing next to me
Grateful we have everything we need
Grateful just to be
Grateful, grateful

I get tunnel vision
When I finally see your face
Through all the commotion
I feel amazing grace

Grateful that you made it home
Grateful that I am not alone
Grateful that I’m not sinking like a stone
Grateful to hear you breathing next to me
Grateful we have everything we need
Grateful just to be
Grateful, grateful, grateful, grateful
Grateful, I can fall back into place
Grateful, I can finally feel safe
Grateful, grateful
