Sunday Morning Jetpack

Album: I Decided (2017)
  • Thank you God for all my set backs
    'Cause he the reason I'm able to give back
    This feel like my Sunday morning jetpack
    Feel like I sent the prayers up and got blessed back, whoa
    Feel like I sent the prayers up and got blessed back
    This feel like my Sunday morning jetpack, yeah

    This the feeling though that I been missing some days
    This feel like I'm headed to paradise one way
    This feel like the family dinners that we used to have on Sunday
    With Grandma in the kitchen making rum cake
    Or this spread she used to do for Thanksgiving, man
    This feels like the first time I heard Killa Cam
    Pink Tim's, in the Lamb
    Mixing it with Dilla and
    Headphones to the ceiling fan
    Bucket hat like Gilligan, yeah
    Lately I've been talking to ghosts
    Didn't learn faith in school but that's what I'm testing the most
    You know I still rep you when you're gone though
    I got a picture of us on the front lawn
    With me, grandma and mom, that night I went off to prom
    Wishin' you could see that Lysol Dijon and Parmesan
    Funny thing about it you always act like you knew
    You told me how you were feeling before it happened, before it do
    And you taught me I'm a product of everything I go through
    And you and grandma went broke so we would never get bruised
    You the reason I ever touched my first Franklin
    Fast forward, I'm in Kanye crib with Kirk Franklin
    It reminded me how of we always used to dress up as a family
    And go to Sunday service, and being in church, singin'
    Ain't been to church in awhile
    But it ain't just about how you just praise him in the building
    It's about how you praisin' him while you out
    You taught me to remember that when I get set back
    Been through the worst times to get the best back
    Wishin' for a time machine to jet back
    'Til my all time low and something throw me a jetpack, whoa
    And see you again, needless to say
    Back when I dated Alisha, Simone
    Or any other girl who looked like Lisa Bonet
    Who was jealous of me and Jhené
    Who you would always advise with me being away
    You was right, but I had to learn for myself
    I guess a time came for me to earn for myself
    I hope that this is somewhat of a thank you for all your help
    Hope the angels take care of you 'til I see you myself

    Thank you God for all my set backs
    'Cause he the reason I'm able to give back
    This feel like my Sunday morning jetpack
    Feel like I sent the prayers up and got blessed back, whoa
    Feel like I sent the prayers up and got blessed back
    This feel like my Sunday morning jetpack

    And mama said hit them with the inspiration
    In times like these we need inspiration
    Turn all your problems into inspiration
    Elevation, inspiration
    I said elevation, inspiration
    I said elevation, inspiration

    Thank you God for all my set backs
    'Cause he the reason I'm able to give back
    This feel like my Sunday morning jetpack
    Feel like I sent the prayers up and got blessed back, whoa Writer/s: AMAIRE JOHNSON, SEAN MICHAEL ANDERSON, TERIUS YOUNGDELL NASH
