What do I have to be thankful for ?
Life took away from me all I had and some more
I almost drowned, barely made it to the shore
So tell me what do I have to be thankful for

It’s easy for you to tell me to just ignore
To move on and to pretend like I have more

People eating and drinking betting on the score
Touchdown for the right team everybody roars
And I’m sitting on my chair acting like a bore
Please tell me what do I have to be thankful for ?

It’s easy for you to tell me to just ignore
The pain that I feel is real and I have more

The game is almost over I hear people snore
Nothing left to distract me from the grief in store
It rushes on me in cold waves and breaks down my doors
So tell me what do I have to be thankful for ?

It’s easy for them to tell me to just ignore
After all they’re not the ones that miss you most

Lost in my dreams in your arms once more
If only my life was the nightmare and my dream the shore…
