Gratitude

Story Behind The Song

When I first heard Jenna sing, I envisioned her in a Casablanca scene, singing in a classy, smokey bar, to her man that did her wrong. When I told her this, she was so excited and I said to myself, oh great, now I have to write the song...so I did

Lyrics

My eyes reflect the truth the way I look away
You Know just how I feel the way I hesitate
Something has changed and I guess that's just how it goes
Now you must hold on to the dawn

Sing me a song, cry me a river
Open your soul, be the big giver
Convince me it's not about you
I need some gratitude

Baby just find a way to make me want to stay
To give you one more chance before I walk away
The meter's running, come and sooth me with a lie
It's time to promise me the sky

Sing me a song, cry me a river
Open your soul, be the big giver
Convince me it's not about you
I need some gratitude

Your eyes reflect a feeling that you cannot say
The way it used to be is different from today
It's time to step outside in to a brand new day
Now all that matters is the dawn

Sing me a song, cry me a river
Open your soul, be the big giver
Convince me it's not about you
I need some gratitude
