Thankful Lyrics

07 Thankful

 

It's the first breath of springtime

And a warm wind

Picks up the fallen blossom

And sails in circles down the street

A lady cycles past with her hair in braids

As they're pulling down the awnings to the train station cafe

 

I'm alive and I'm thankful for this time

I'm alive and I'm thankful for this time

 

Six o'clock summer afternoon

Next door's kids are playing in the yard

I'm doing the dishes at the window

And the radio's playing superstar

And the sun falls down upon the garden next door

Where two young boys are fighting

Till a woman appears at the door

 

And the fires and the fog and the falling leaves

All under October sky

You walked me home in the cold after closing time

As the leaves rushed by

 

How I want to be loved

How I need to be loved

Now that I've found you

I'd do anything for you

 

In the forest of angels

That's where we laid you down

And I can hear you whisper

As the first frost falls on the ground

You're alive just be thankful

For this time

You're alive just be thankful

 

For this time
