Josh Groban – Thankful lyrics

Somedays we forget
To look around us
Somedays we can't see
The joy that surrounds us
So caught up inside ourselves
We take when we should give.

So for tonight we pray for
What we know can be.
And on this day we hope for
What we still can't see.
It's up to us to be the change
And even though we all can still do more
There's so much to be thankful for.

Look beyond ourselves
There's so much sorrow
It's way too late to say
I'll cry tomorrow
Each of us must find our truth
It's so long overdue

So for tonight we pray for
What we know can be
And every day we hope for
What we still can't see
It's up to us to be the change
And even though we all can still do more
There's so much to be thankful for.

Even with our differences
There is a place we're all connected
Each of us can find each other's light

So for tonight we pray for
What we know can be
And on this day we hope for
What we still can't see
It's up to us to be the change
And even though this world needs so much more

There's so much to be thankful for

    "It's up to us to be the change" As Mahatma Gandhi remnded us: "Be the Change you want to see in the world." Don't be waiting for someone else to do it first. David Whyte, the poet said: "Start close in. Take the first step." In other words BEGIN. The only one I can change is myself so Begin.

    "It's up to us to change." Mahatma Gandhi put it like this "Be the Change you want to see in the world." So even though the world is often a tough place for a lot of people, and far from how we would like it, the song writer is suggestion that we should be the agents for the change we want to see in the world. As David Whyte, the poet says: "Start close in. Take the first step. Not the step far away."

    "Each of us must find our truth". As Nelson Mandela said: " We are born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone." That's each of our truth!!
    "And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others."
