Song Lyric Sunday – Thank you by Dido

I realize I’m probably cheating, but most of the time when I post a theme, I have a song in mind already.  However, this week was completely different.  I knew I wanted to do the grateful theme, but I honestly had no idea of a song.

So, I took to Google and was reminded of this song.  I fell in love with Dido years ago, I just haven’t listened to her music in a while.  When I first heard this song, I could only dream of someone who treated me this way; someone I could be grateful to spend a day with…  I’m happy to say that this song could be my anthem on most days now.

I was the girl who probably should have given up on love; and to be honest, I almost did.  I could never have imagined myself where I am today… happy, in love and so grateful to wake up next to someone who makes me feel so loved.  Thanks for being in my life, baby.  I’m so grateful to have you!

Thank You by Dido

My tea’s gone cold, I’m wondering why I got out of bed at all
the morning rain clouds up my window and I can’t see at all
And even if I could it’d all be grey, but your picture on my wall
it reminds me that it’s not so bad
it’s not so bad

I drank too much last night, got bills to pay
my head just feels in pain
I missed the bus and there’ll be hell today
I’m late for work again
and even if I’m there, they’ll all imply that I might not last the
day
and then you call me and it’s not so bad
it’s not so bad and

I want to thank you for giving me the best day of my life
Oh just to be with you is having the best day of my life

Push the door, I’m home at last and I’m soaking through and
through
then you handed me a towel and all I see is you
and even if my house falls down now, I wouldn’t have a clue
because you’re near me and

I want to thank you for giving me the best day of my life
Oh just to be with you is having the best day of my life

      • That might be me projecting. I’ve lived in a very unusual home for over 40 years, raised my kids here, had over 40 housemates (and kids and animals) and have come close to losing everything many times. Now, the house is terminally ill and I can’t afford to save it. The bank wants to foreclose and builders offer to buy the land so they can level our homestead. Without James, and his sweet, persistent love, I’d be devastated daily.
        “Thanks” indeed!

        That’s what I saw in the video.
