I do not know why I cling to my pride
Mama told me "Shake the Devil off and let it go
Why your mind caught up in the future when it don’t exist yet

I know I can’t help it, I know I can’t help it
[Hook]
Grateful, grateful, grateful
Back and forth on my logic on a Tuesday night
[Hook]
I was but a young boy with a no dream, can’t nothing ruin my day
I need compliments and ego driven lunches, all to feed my gumption
Couldn’t tell I need a spot until them bells is dropping on me I don’t invest
Grateful, grateful, grateful
You put dreaming on a pedestal"
I know I can’t help it, I know I can’t help it
[Hook]
Grateful, grateful, grateful
Only real change is inside of you
Moments get forsaken, granted you feel taken
Envious assumptions all too hard to function, dopamine consumption
Used to play Kingdom Hearts in my spare time and bump Jeezy tapes to feel grown
So much on my mental balancing these worries heavy weighing like a bench press
God with me in my lowest moments, blessings on blessings right under noses
Grateful, grateful, grateful
God is giving you a better view
Everything’s going my way and I’m still losing my mind
Blessings adding up, I should feel amazing
I done ’bout prayed to God at least 8 hundred and 4022 times
Always want to talk about what I ain’t got instead of everything that I had
Even my whole squad, that’s myself
Grateful, grateful, grateful
Boy I walk this road alone
In anybody, but myself these days
Take a look around, all we got is now, life ain’t measured by no inches
Open up your heart and smell the roses
Way before Apple Music and Spotify was all on my new phone

I don’t ever stop to think about shit, dog, like why the fuck you so mad?
Grateful, grateful, grateful
Grateful, grateful, grateful
[Verse 1]
Grateful, grateful, grateful
Grateful, grateful, grateful

Little did I notice, everything I wanted all was inside
Made a lot of progress in my lifetime, dog, I done came a long way
Grateful, grateful, grateful

I can have it all as long as I try
I wanna dress so so bad, ain’t no feeling like myself these days
The only real change is inside of you
Funny how you learn to fall from grace as soon as you touch the sky
I been mobbing with myself these days
[Verse 2]
Even when the Sun shines from my eyes, I still find a way to go blind
[Verse 3]

Feeling that who that nigga we that, Shawty Redd was my ringtone
Grateful, grateful, grateful
Yeah, I wish I could put my feelings aside
Grateful, grateful, grateful
