Breaking down never seems to be that hard
Falling short is always in the cards
I'm on the road, sun rising at my back
Lost it all somewhere between the cracks
I always hoped that I'd do better
That I'd come out on top for once
We all get what we're delivered
Then there are the lucky ones
chorus:
And I've got all that I'm allowed
It'll do for me, I'm thankful now
The walls get higher every day
The barriers get in the way
But I see hope in every cloud
And I'm thankful, thankful
I'm thankful, So thankful
I'm thankful, I've got all that I'm allowed
Leaving town gets to feel just like a job
My desire never winds up on top
I can say now I didn't want the moon
It's out of reach somewhere beyond this room
I always hoped that I'd do better
That I'd come out on top for once
We all get what we're delivered
Then there are the lucky ones
(repeat chorus)
I've always try to make things clear
Then I watched as progress stalled
I only hope I'm standing here
When Heaven finally comes to call
(repeat chorus)
Thankful, So thankful
I'm thankful, I've got all that I'm allowed
All that I'm Allowed
I'm Thankful
And I've got all that I'm allowed
So Thankful
And I've got all that I'm allowed
