Gregory Porter - Thank You lyrics

[Intro]
Yeah
Yeah, now

[Chorus]
Thank you for making a place for me
Opening my eyes, and now I see
Thank you
Thank you, thank you, thank you
Thank you for shining a light on me
Putting me right where I'm s'posed to be
Thank you
Thank you, thank you, thank you

[Verse 1]
I'll never, never know just why you love me so
How do you do what you do when you say that you love me
I have to stop and sing about the love you bring
You put the spark and the flame in the fire
You inspire me

[Chorus]
Thank you for making a place for me
Opening my eyes, and now I see
Thank you
Thank you, thank you, thank you
Thank you for shining a light on me
Putting me right where I'm s'posed to be
Thank you
Thank you, thank you, thank you

[Bridge]
Whatever I do is in your name (I will thank you)
Whatever I say is in your name (Lord, I thank you)
Whatever I sing is in your name (I will thank you)
However I love is in your name (Lord, I thank you)
Whatever I do is in your name (I will thank you)
Whatever I say is in your name (Lord, I thank you)
However I sing is in your name, oh (I will thank you)
Oh, how I love is in your name (I will thank you)

[Verse 2]
Rough-cut stone, I couldn't polish myself
Had to be done by someone else
Thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you
Thank you for lighting a fire under me
If I rise, there you'll be
Thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you

[Verse 3]
How I thank you
Oh, I thank you
(Wanna give thanks) Wanna give thanks
(Wanna give thanks, I wanna thank God) Got to give thanks, oh
(Thank you)
(Wanna give thanks, I wanna thank God) Wanna give thanks
(Thank you)
(Wanna give thanks, I wanna thank God) Got to give thanks

[Bridge]
Whatever I do is in your name (I will thank you)
Whatever I say is in your name (Lord, I thank you)
Whatever I sing is in your name (I will thank you)
However I love is in your name (Lord, I thank you)
Whatever I do is in your name (I will thank you)
Whatever I say is in your name (Lord, I thank you)
However I sing is in your name, oh (I will thank you)
Oh, how I love is in your name (I will thank you)

[Verse 4]
If I cross that seven seas (Lord, I thank you)
It won't be because of me (I will thank you)
I can't move no mountain with my hand (Lord, I thank you)
But with you, I can (I will thank you)
If I think the Lord can change this land (Lord, I thank you)
He got the whole thing in the palm of his hand (I will thank you)
I wanna thank you
I wanna thank you (Lord, I thank you)
Oh, I thank you (Lord, I thank you)

[Verse 5]
(I will thank you) You own the lightning in your hand
(Lord, I thank you) I am just a mortal man
(I will thank you) Even when I'm at my best
(I will thank you) I need you to do the rest
(I will thank you) Oh, I thank you
(Even when I'm at my best, I am blessed that you do the rest)
(Even when I'm at my best, I am blessed that you do the rest)
(Even when I'm at my best, I am blessed that you do the rest)
(Even when I'm at my best, I am blessed that you do the rest)

[Outro]
When I was nine or ten
You became my beginning and my end
In between Lakeview and Haley Street
That's where the outdoor church would meet
Thank you
Thank you
Thank you
