Kota the Friend – Grateful Lyrics

Grateful Lyrics – Kota the Friend

Out in Colorado, hit the lotto (One take)
Got a cabin in the middle of the mountains
Shit, I feel like I’m the mayor now
Used to sip on bottle after bottle
I was drowning (Woo), get the goggles (Let’s go, come on)
Now I’m rooted in the present, what you sayin’ now?
Everything is love, that’s the motto
Spend the winter out in southern California where it’s warmer, I don’t play around
I don’t give a fuck if niggas coming for your soul, they don’t know you
If I love you, homie, I’ma always say it loud
Grateful, grateful, grateful, grateful, grateful
Even in a rough patch, I’ma always make due
Even when I’m down bad, I be sayin’, “Thank you”
Even when I’m wild sad, I can never hate you, nah
Get up and I get it on the worst day
Self-care, nigga, that’s the first thing
Grind ’til you chillin’ on a workday
And when you get it, I hope you are

Grateful, grateful, grateful, grateful, yeah, yeah
Thank you, Jesus, Buddha, Jah, or Allah
Please insert whatever you believe in
Celebratin’ this abundant season
Thank you for the setbacks on the way up
Thank you for the stories that they made up
Thank you for my Noah’s Ark, that’s word to Blu
The deep blue sea can’t fuck with me

I’ma be great when you showin’ me love
I’ma be great when you throwin’ me hate
I’ma be great even when I am done
You got another thing coming if you think I’ma break
I was all around the world for a couple of months
I was out in Long Beach for a couple of weeks
I be walking through the town just like you and your friends
When you see me on the block, there ain’t nothin’ to see
I’m in Malibu, nigga, what’s up?
Took a trip to Sedona, we was whippin’ the truck
Then we headed to Montana, we was lookin’ for Ye
And I know you couldn’t make it, but we sendin’ you love
Yeah, I remember we was still on the block, big dreams
I ain’t even have a cent to my name, shit cray
We was tryna hide the blunt from the cops and stay low
Making three songs every day
Now I’m up and I am

Grateful, grateful, grateful, grateful, yeah, yeah
Thank you, Jesus, Buddha, Jah, or Allah
Please insert whatever you believe in
Celebratin’ this abundant season
Thank you for the setbacks on the way up
Thank you for the stories that they made up
Thank you for my Noah’s Ark, that’s word to Blu
The deep blue sea can’t fuck with me

Woke up feeling like yes
Now I got another day and I’m doin’ my best
Give a fuck about the fame, I could really care less
I am here to spread love rollin’ out of my bed
I done came a long way from the person I was
They be throwin’ me the pain and I let it all come
I don’t ever shoot back, I just send ’em back love
Always had mad love, now I got it backed up
Now my gun goin’ love for you and love for you
And you and you, we only human, we deserve it
Trauma real and you been hurtin’, I been hurtin’
We been searchin’, I been learnin’
Broke the surface, found my purpose
Open curtains, wrote these verses
I been working, tables turning
Life get good when you movin’ with love
And what you need is the shit that you want
Every day, a nigga

Grateful, grateful, grateful, grateful, yeah, yeah
Thank you, Jesus, Buddha, Jah, or Allah
Please insert whatever you believe in
Celebratin’ this abundant season
Thank you for the setbacks on the way up
Thank you for the stories that they made up
Thank you for my Noah’s Ark, that’s word to Blu
The deep blue sea can’t fuck with me
