"Thankful" as written by Carole Bayer Sager, David W. Foster and Richard J. Page....
Somedays, we forget to look around us,
Somedays, we can't see the joy that surrounds us,
So caught up inside ourselves,
We take when we should give,
So for tonight we pray for,
What we know can be,
And on this day we hope for,
What we still can't see,
It's up to us, to be the change,
And even though we all can still do more,
There's so much to be thankful for,
Look beyond ourselves,
There's so much sorrow,
It's way to late to say, I'll cry tomorrow
Each of us must find our truth,
It's so long overdue,
So for tonight we pray for,

What we know can be,
And everyday, we hope for,
What we still can't see,
It's up to us, to be the change,
And even though we all can still do more,
There's so much to be thankful for,
Even with our differences,
There is a place we're all connected,
Each of us can find each others light,
So for tonight, we pray for
What we know can be,
And on this day, we hope for,
What we still can't see,
It's up to us, to be the change,
And even though this world needs so much more
There's so much to be thankful for.

    My InterpretationI consider this to be one of Josh Groban's most beautiful songs, but that's just personal opinion. However, I find the lyrics to be stunning and powerful at the same time. Whether you are a person of faith or not, this song can speak to anyone. I think what the song is saying is, "We must hope for all to be well in the world, but it is up to us to do something about it; even though we can't fix everything at once, we have so much to give thanks for." This shall forever remain one of my favorites.
