Glorious

Album: Gemini (2017)
Charted: 23 49
  • You know I'm back like I never left (I never left)
    Another sprint, another step (another step)
    Another day, another breath (another breath)
    Been chasing dreams, but I never slept (I never slept)

    I got a new attitude and a lease on life
    And some peace of mind
    Seek and I find I can sleep when I die
    Wanna piece of the pie, grab the keys to the ride
    And shit I'm straight
    I'm on my wave, I'm on my wave
    Get out my wake, I'm running late, what can I say?
    I heard you die twice, once when they bury you in the grave
    And the second time is the last time that somebody mentions your name
    So when I leave here on this earth, did I take more than I gave?
    Did I look out for the people or did I do it all for fame?
    Legend, it's exodus searching for euphoria
    Trudging through the mud to find the present, no ignoring us
    Got 20,000 deep off in the street like we some warriors
    My mama told me never bow your head, woo!

    I feel glorious, glorious
    Got a chance to start again
    I was born for this, born for this
    It's who I am, how could I forget?
    I made it through the darkest part of the night
    And now I see the sunrise
    Now I feel glorious, glorious
    I feel glorious, glorious

    I'm feeling glorious
    The crib looking Victorian (oh yes it is)
    You know that we been going in (been going in)
    Since we hopped out that Delorean (Delorean, yeah we win)

    En garde, things are just things
    They don't make you who you are
    Can't pack up a U-Haul and take it with you when you're gone
    We posted on the porch, my family's glasses to the stars
    My grandma smiling down on me like woo, that boy got bars
    Okay, okay, yes I do
    I said amen and hallelujah, let me testify too
    Another morning, a morning, don't let self get in my way
    I got my breath, I got my faith and I remember why I came

    I feel glorious, glorious
    Got a chance to start again
    I was born for this, born for this
    It's who I am, how could I forget?
    I made it through the darkest part of the night
    And now I see the sunrise
    Now I feel glorious, glorious
    I feel glorious, glorious

    We gon' be alright, put that on my life
    When I open my eyes, hope I see you shine
    We're planting a flag they don't understand
    The world is up for grabs (Hey, hey, hey)
    We gon' be alright, put that on my life
    When I open my eyes, hope I see you shine
    We're planting a flag they don't understand
    The world is up for grabs

    I feel glorious, glorious
    Got a chance to start again
    I was born for this, born for this
    It's who I am, how could I forget?
    I made it through the darkest part of the night
    And now I see the sunrise
    Now I feel glorious, glorious
    I feel glorious, glorious Writer/s: Ben Haggerty, Holly Hafermann, Joshua Karp, Tyler Dopps, Tyler W Andrews
