Thankful for You

Thankful for You, by Toby Mac, from the album Eye on It

Well I started out
In a spare bedroom
Two turntables
And a microphone
I was flippin’ over 33’s
Workin’ on rhymes and melodies
Searchin’ for some more of you
And a little less of me.

It’s never been my dream
To see my face in magazines
It’s always been about the music
Hopin’ God would use it
To set some people free

But I can say without a doubt
I’ve never had it figured out
Lord, You’ve opened every door I’ve stepped through, yeah
And I’ve tried to keep my head about me
I’m thankful for the friends around me
I’m thankful for You
Yeah, yeah, yeah
I’m thankful for You

I’ve been on this road
And you’ve come to my shows
Sometimes just a few of y’all
Other times in droves
But you’ve been right there to rock with us
We come together we lift Him up

And seeing you there inspires me
Puts a fire in me

It’s never been my dream
To read my name in magazines
It’s always been about the music
Prayin’ God would use it
To set some people free

But I can say without a doubt
I’ve never had it figured out
Lord, You’ve opened every door I’ve stepped through, yeah
And I’ve tried to keep my head about me
I’m thankful for the friends around me
I’m thankful for You
Yeah, yeah, yeah
I’m thankful for You

It’s such a free feelin’
That you got me feelin’
We’re all good, all good, all good
I love this free feelin’
That You got me feelin’
We’re all good, all good, all good
Love that free feelin’
That you got me feelin’
We’re all good, all good, all good

Yeah they say you become
Who you hang out with.
Well, I can tell You for sure
You made me a better man

I can say without a doubt
I’ve never had it figured out
Lord, You’ve opened every door I’ve stepped through, yeah
And I’ve tried to keep my head about me
I’m thankful for the friends around me
I’m thankful for You
Yeah, yeah, yeah
I’m thankful for You
