Sylvan LaCue – Grateful


Why your mind caught up in the future when it don’t exist yet
Take a look around, all we got is now, life ain’t measured by no inches
You put dreaming on a pedestal"
So much on my mental balancing these worries heavy weighing like a bench press
Feeling that who that nigga we that, Shawty Redd was my ringtone
Little did I notice, everything I wanted all was inside
Grateful, grateful, grateful
Grateful, grateful, grateful
Back and forth on my logic on a Tuesday night
Grateful, grateful, grateful
I know I can’t help it, I know I can’t help it
Used to play Kingdom Hearts in my spare time and bump Jeezy tapes to feel grown
Always want to talk about what I ain’t got instead of everything that I had
[Hook]
[Verse 3]
I need compliments and ego driven lunches, all to feed my gumption
In anybody, but myself these days

Grateful, grateful, grateful
Even when the Sun shines from my eyes, I still find a way to go blind
I wanna dress so so bad, ain’t no feeling like myself these days
Couldn’t tell I need a spot until them bells is dropping on me I don’t invest
Boy I walk this road alone
The only real change is inside of you

God is giving you a better view
Grateful, grateful, grateful
Grateful, grateful, grateful
I done ’bout prayed to God at least 8 hundred and 4022 times
I can have it all as long as I try
I been mobbing with myself these days
Grateful, grateful, grateful
Way before Apple Music and Spotify was all on my new phone
Grateful, grateful, grateful

Blessings adding up, I should feel amazing
Envious assumptions all too hard to function, dopamine consumption
I don’t ever stop to think about shit, dog, like why the fuck you so mad?
Grateful, grateful, grateful
I was but a young boy with a no dream, can’t nothing ruin my day
Mama told me "Shake the Devil off and let it go
I do not know why I cling to my pride
Grateful, grateful, grateful
[Hook]

God with me in my lowest moments, blessings on blessings right under noses
[Verse 2]
Everything’s going my way and I’m still losing my mind
[Hook]
Yeah, I wish I could put my feelings aside
[Verse 1]
Grateful, grateful, grateful
Made a lot of progress in my lifetime, dog, I done came a long way
Moments get forsaken, granted you feel taken
Funny how you learn to fall from grace as soon as you touch the sky
Open up your heart and smell the roses
Even my whole squad, that’s myself
I know I can’t help it, I know I can’t help it
Only real change is inside of you
Grateful, grateful, grateful
