Thankful (feat. Maychelle Baay and Bambu)


MKNM: Mga Kwento Ng Makata
Gloc-9
2012

Intro (Bambu):

Tell you when the song nets

That's so bad

 

Chorus (Maychelle Baay):

I just wanna thank you for

All the things that you have done

And if not for you I won't be

The person that I'll become

But tell me why things have to change

And what I felt for you is not the same

All I know is I, all I know is I

All I know is I

I want to get out of here

 

Verse 1 (Gloc 9):

It's crazy how you wish for the things in life

All the things you want, all the things you like

But you gotta be careful cause you might get it

Find yourself at the airport when you lightheaded

You wanna stay home, close your eyes and listen

To your headphones, memorizin' the songs

That at times when everything is still simple

Why did it happen so fast, it's so nimble

Can I get an amen, we're not in a temple

When I call you 'Hey man', I try to rekindle

Skills that I've learned, scars that I've earned

I never let go even though I get burned

Watch the replays, dues that I pay

I kneel and I pray like everyday

But then I realized that everything is still empty

I wanna get out of here, can somebody help me

 

Chorus (Maychelle Baay):

I just wanna thank you for

All the things that you have done

And if not for you I won't be

The person that I'll become

 

Verse 2 (Gloc 9):

It started when I held you in my hand, it felt good

Cause that's the only thing I asked for and I stood

And looked up the sky or knelt on the ground

Believe me when I tell you what I saw I found

But don't get me wrong I ain't sayin' it's easy

Like wearin' air-yeezies in a third world country

You gotta fall in line, wait 'til you get a turn

Ask after you sign, everything is a blur

Plus there ain't a lot that try to help me when I'm down

And it seems like everybody only sees me as a clown

Who wants to grab the mic and say yes yes ya'll

I made you see the pictures with the words that I draw

I ate all them criticisms, I spoke but I listen

Feed all my thoughts, got the keys to the prison

But there are times you gotta smile even though you're hurt

I just wanna let you know I'm thankful for what it's worth

 

Chorus (Maychelle Baay):

I just wanna thank you for

All the things that you have done

And if not for you I won't be

The person that I'll become

 

Verse 3 (Bambu):

I thank all my kasamas in the jungle

Huddled around the fire singing songs about the struggle

And study the basic problems, tryin' to resolve 'em

Protract the struggle in the name of those who fallen

In a third world, first world vamps spread noles

Regardless of my ideology and social views

At the core of it all, I wanna feed the poor

I don't want young Pinays to be shipped to foreign shores

I don't want giant hotels in Manila sellin' tours

I want us to produce things that we can call ours

I wanna thank the few who do the work for the masses

Thank the teachers in school who kicked me out of classes

And the women who I love so bad

Here's a thank you for my dad

Who tells his son about the struggles back home

Block-bam, block-siam, to tell you when the song nets

 

Chorus (Maychelle Baay):

I just wanna thank you for

All the things that you have done

And if not for you I won't be

The person that I'll become

But tell me why things have to change

And what I felt for you is not the same

All I know is I, all I know is I

All I know is I

I want to get out of here
