about

This song stemmed from a challenge made over a zoom call that stuck with me: how do you create art from a place of gratitude? And so, I wrote “Thanks To You” on the back of a reflection upon a difficult time in my life. It’s a realisation how it is pointless trying to please or seek validation from people who do not have good intentions, and do not really care about you. At the end of the day, all you need are a few close friends who really do care about you, and would stand by you and bear witness to the truth. I’m so lucky, grateful and thankful for those people in my life, and this is a song that says “thank you” to the fantastic people in my life.

lyrics

Don’t look back
 (don’t look back)
It might make you sad
 (make you sad)
You’re not going there anyway
 (anyway)

When your hopes and dreams
 (hopes and dreams)
Seemed far away
 (far away)
And you were ready to end it all
 (end it all)

In my deepest pain you came along
And caught me when I fell
You stood by me when I needed it most
And showed me how to live again

It’s thanks to you
(it only takes one)
It’s thanks to you
(believing in me)
It’s thanks to you
(I’m still here today)
I guess
(you rescued me)

It’s thanks to you
(the power of one)
It’s thanks to you
(for telling the truth)
It’s thanks to you
(for being my friend)
I know
(you saved my life)

Here I stand
 (here I stand)
Much stronger now
 (stronger now)
Good will always win in the end
 (in the end)

In my deepest pain you came along
And caught me when I fell
You helped me when I needed it most
And showed me how to live again

It’s thanks to you
(it only takes one)
It’s thanks to you
(believing in me)
It’s thanks to you
(I’m still here today)
I guess
(you rescued me)

It’s thanks to you
(the power of one)
It’s thanks to you
(for telling the truth)
It’s thanks to you
(for being my friend)
I know
(you saved my life)
