Attitude of Gratitude
A tune by...

Jaime J Ross: Vocals, Lyrics, piano
Zeph Daniel: Drums, Synths solo, Production/MixUp
ThePhaige: Lyrics, Vocals, Some other instruments

Sometimes I need a bit of perspective, I can get caught up in the day to day annoyances, the news around that isnt good or the misunderstanding with a friend. Sometimes taking the little things for granted or becoming overly intense about this or that and I just need to take a deep breath and think of all the things I have to be grateful for and there are so many things. Lets start with my co creators of this tune. When I went to Jaime with this she was all over the idea of coming up with some lyrics to the simple chorus I had jotted down and some awesome piano which she so came up with and sounds so amazing in the piece. It just sounds so bright and happening. We wanted to sing this harmony style and Im just so happy and grateful for Jaime and her infectious vibe. She came with these great lyrics that were so fun to sing. We sometimes go deep on the lyrical content but we really wanted to stay light and simple here.

So we then passed this over to Zeph who was getting antsy.  He had these killer drum riffs he wanted to put with the track and man do they POP! then I wanted him to do a Synth solo and left a spot for that and Zeph came in with this Emerson, Lake and Palmer on helium vibe that is just perfect in my ear and has a high degree of happiness to it. He really spent a lot of time on the mix and Im sure at times hes would have been grateful if I would just leave him be so he could do his thing. haha I had a blast doing this one and I hope it shows in the finished piece.

Lyrics

The alarm clock is screamin
The coffee is on
The day starts so early
The night..quickly gone

But I stop and I think
How many have not
A job to wake up to
And that...I have got

I'm all about...and attitude of gratitude
I got no room...for hypocritical platitudes
So if you want to join me on my contentment quest
Grab on my coattails and let us...experience the best

I sit down each weekend
And i deal with my debts
Easy come easy go...the pockets empty
I have no regrets

But I'm warm and my belly
Is wonderfully fed
I've a roof to live under
And a nice...comfy bed

Gratitude is everything
Gratitude is everything

The blisters are rockin 
The soles of my feet
Car tire and a nail
Two things that did meet

Miles into nowhere
With no help in sight
Cannot let these times
Get us down

Appreciation for all these things must take flight
Appreciation for all these things
