lyrics

Grateful for the struggle, learning, knowledge, the burning
Grateful for the struggle, gaining power, with every hour I'll be
Grateful for the struggle, lessons, the blessings,
Grateful for the struggle, the daily grinding, there's peace in my mind

Living every day within this skin
Squeezing through the pores that trap me in
Knocking at my door once again
that old gravity pulling me back in

It was one of them days when nothing went my way
and I'm wondering what heya heyel
Walk into the door drop my gear on the floor
then I'm headed upstairs to recoup, well
kicking off my styles, dropped the painted fake smile
let myself drown in the moment

I know the struggle keeps me strong, so I'm gon’ keep holding on

Grateful for the struggle, learning, knowledge, the burning
Grateful for the struggle, gaining power, with every hour I'll be
Grateful for the struggle, lessons, the blessings,
Grateful for the struggle, the daily grinding, there's peace in my mind

I’m grateful
for lines that crease my face
Grateful
for pains that betray my grace
I’m grateful
I’m strong and dyed in the wool
Grateful
and I’m grateful

It was one of them days when nothing went my way
and I'm wondering what heya heyel
Walk into the door drop my gear on the floor
then I'm headed upstairs to recoup, well
kicking off my styles, dropped the painted fake smile
let myself drown in the moment

I know the struggle keeps me strong, so I'm gon’ keep holding on
Grateful for it
