Gratefully

You hurt me last year
But the tears didn’t come ’til this year
I had to figure some shit out
Had to clear my leer
Had to climb back into my body
Create a new route
The life I was leading
It was unhappy and mouse

I’m not complaining, no
I’m not complaining
I took charge, so
I’m not complaining though
No I’m not complaining ’cause

You helped me to grow
I just thought you should know
No hard feelings
My love is real fa’sho
So you do you, and I’ll do me
We both independent, that’s how it be
Blink twice anytime you wanna re-see
But right here and now, I’m gratefully

You scared me so badly
I went outside of myself
Followed you around like massah
Wanted to end me all but I
I just couldn’t fathom
I just couldn’t handle
On the inside I heard my call
Answering it made me so happy and tall

I’m not complaining, no
I’m not complaining
I took charge, so
I’m not complaining though
No I’m not complaining ’cause

This helped me to grow
I just thought you should know
No hard feelings
My love is real fa’sho
So you do you, and I’ll do me
We both independent, that’s how it be
Blink twice anytime you wanna re-see
But right here and now, I’m gratefully

My heart is alive
But I felt you trying to kill it
I had to break out
Don’t need a babysit
Buddy had me bodied
I had it confused for real commit
My heart is alive
Ain’t no sense in abusing it

This helped me to grow
I just thought you should know
No hard feelings
My love is real fa’sho
So you do you, and I’ll do me
We both independent, that’s how it be
Blink twice anytime you wanna re-see
But right here and now, I’m gratefully

This helped me to grow
I just thought you should know
No hard feelings
My love is real fa’sho
So you do you, and I’ll do me
We both independent, that’s how it be
Blink twice anytime you wanna re-see
But right here and now, I’m gratefully

Right here and right now
I’m grateful for me
