I came to you with a rose in my hand,
You smiled and said you didn't understand.
I said, "It's for you," and then turned and ran.
I was thankful.

I dreamed of you on an old park bench,
Like a ghost from a time that came and went.
A little bird came to inspect my laments.
I was thankful.

When food hits my lips and I start dancing.
When the itching and the scratching go away.

Last night I dreamed of you and I.
I wish I could choose my dreams. I would try
To live there even if it was a lie
And be thankful.

When I hear a song that's sad,
I forget all the things that I've never had,
And remember the love that I have
And am thankful.

When a smile from another makes life easier,
The sun will outrun the clouds today.

I came to you with a rose in my hand,
You smiled and said you didn't understand.
