Lyrics

Think About It

Written By: Chandra Currelley & Anthony Cunningham

Nobody like you
I think about the past, and what I've was before
I realize how blessed Iam, and so much to be thankful for
When I think about the times I've wasted
Then I've learned to pace it
You cared for me, you were there for me
Chorus
When I think about all the things that you've done
When I think about all the battles we've won
When I think about all you've done for me
Oh you're love is so easy to see
When I messed up, and I didn't understand
Somehow I know I got another chance
While I was lonely and I needed a hand
And I know I couldn't just have any man
Chorus
Think, Think, Think about it (3 times)
So easy to see
Bridge
In this moment, I'm thankful for your love
I know that's a fact, there's nothing I want more
Chorus
Ad lib (out)
