Thank You

Album: Defying Gravity (2009)
  • There were nights where I was sure
    I wouldn't see the morning sun
    And there were days that seemed so dark
    I couldn't wait for night to come

    I couldn't stand to think about how
    My life used to be
    And how without a single warning
    It all slipped away from me

    And like a fool I thought that I could fight
    The shadows on my own
    To the dark I was no stranger
    But this was stronger than I'd known

    And by the time I knew that I was in too deep
    I'd gone too far
    And the light that used to guide me
    Had faded from my heart

    And I found myself in places I thought I'd never go
    Surrounded by strangers I was so far from home
    And I don't know how you found me
    All I know is I owe you everything to you
    Yes I do

    [Chorus]
    And I thank you for my heart
    I thank you for my life
    And I thank god for grace and mercy
    And that you became my wife
    I'm seeing for the first time
    The stars, the sun and moon
    But they've got nothing on the power
    Of this love I have for you

    And I thank you, I thank you

    Now people say they'll stand beside you
    They swear they never leave
    But when the rain started falling
    You know it only fell on me

    and it was hard to keep believing in myself
    When all I felt was so much pain
    And guilt and shame
    I couldn't even as for help

    I don't know if I believe in other lives
    But when you came
    There was something so familar
    About the way you said my name

    And the whole world started turning
    And I swear that I'd been born again brand new
    And it's all because of you

    [Chorus]

    And I thank you

    And I've seen so many things
    That I just can't explain
    But the miracle of miracles is how
    With your love I was saved

    And I thank you for my heart
    I thank you for my life
    I thank god for grace and mercy
    And that you became my wife
    And I'm seeing for the first time
    The stars, the sun and moon
    But they've got nothing on the power
    Of all this love I give to you

    And I thank you for my heart
    I thank you for my life
    I thank god for grace and mercy
    And that you became my wife
    The day I started breathing
    Was the day you took my hand
    And 'till the day I die
    Baby, I'll forever be your man
    And I thank you, I thank you
    Oh, yes I do
    Oh, don't you know, that I thank you
