LYRIC

Thankful
(feat. Maychelle of Moonstar88 & Bambu)

[Intro: Bambu]
Tell you when the song nets
That’s so bad

[Chorus: Maychelle Baay]
I just wanna thank you for
All the things that you have done
And if not for you I won’t be
The person that I’ll become
But tell me why things have to change
And what I felt for you is not the same
All I know is I, all I know is I
All I know is I
I want to get out of here

[Verse 1: Gloc 9]
It’s crazy how you wish for the things in life
All the things you want, all the things you like
But you gotta be careful cause you might get it
Find yourself at the airport when you lightheaded
You wanna stay home, close your eyes and listen
To your headphones, memorizin’ the songs
That at times when everything is still simple
Why did it happen so fast, it’s so nimble
Can I get a amen, we’re not in a templeSet featured image
When I call you ‘Hey man’, I try to rekindle
Skills that I’ve learned, scars that I’ve earned
I never let go even though I get burned
Watch the replays, dues that I pay
I kneel and I pray like everyday
But then I realized that everything is still empty
I wanna get out of here, can somebody help me

[Chorus: Maychelle Baay]
I just wanna thank you for
All the things that you have done
And if not for you I won’t be
The person that I’ll become

[Verse 2: Gloc 9]
It started when I held you in my hand, it felt good
Cause that’s the only thing I asked for and I stood
And looked up the sky or knelt on the ground
Believe me when I tell you what I saw I found
But don’t get me wrong I ain’t sayin’ it’s easy
Like wearin’ air-yeezies in a third world country
You gotta fall in line, wait ’til you get a turn
Ask after you sign, everything is a blur
Plus there ain’t a lot that try to help me when I’m down
And it seems like everybody only sees me as a clown
Who wants to grab the mike and say yes yes yo
I made you see the pictures with the words that I draw
I ate all them criticisms, I spoke but I listen
Feed all my thoughts, got the keys to the prison
But there are times you gotta smile even though you’re hurt
I just wanna let you know I’m thankful for what it’s worth

[Chorus: Maychelle Baay]
I just wanna thank you for
All the things that you have done
And if not for you I won’t be
The person that I’ll become

[Verse 3: Bambu]
I thank all my kasama in the jungle
Huddled around the fire singing songs about the struggle
And study the basic problems, tryin’ to resolve ’em
Protract the struggle in the name of those who fallen
In a third world, first world vamps spread noles
Regardless of my ideology and social views
At the core of it all I wanna feed the poor
I don’t want young Pinays to be shipped to foreign shores
I don’t want giant hotels in Manila sellin’ tours
I want us to produce things that we can call ours
I wanna thank the few who do the work for the masses
Thank the teachers in school who kicked me out of classes
And the women who I love so bad
Here’s a thank you for my dad
Who tells his son about the struggles back home
Block-bam, block-siam, to tell you when the song nets

[Chorus: Maychelle Baay]
I just wanna thank you for
All the things that you have done
And if not for you I won’t be
The person that I’ll become
But tell me why things have to change
And what I felt for you is not the same
All I know is I, all I know is I
All I know is I
I want to get out of here
