Thank You
Nujabes feat. Apani B Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

It's been a long time coming and I'm still not there almost to Japan
just got to get into the air, then off the ground can't wait but kind of scared
to float among the clouds, suspended 12 rounds(?) but I'm bound for destiny
saving grace from insanity but chose to flow.....(?)sounds good to me
coach class after my birthday pass blast off for unknown territory que sera
Whatever I suggest, I'm the distinguished guest, I'm blessed any wishes, last minute requests?
Quench my needs, it's almost unreal all the things I'm seeing
makes me appreciate all God's human beings
in a special way, some things that a rhyme can't say, let me start from the heart
I just want to state

I thank you all for showing love to me
I appreciate this unique opportunity
I'm gonna rock so hard so you never stop supporting me
I'm gonna show you how music brings more meaning to life
[X2]

It's an intimidating task, flipping the craps, making magic over and over
I take a stab at it as a ritual, Predicting to the operation(?) the attraction is spiritual
rap is habitual have me feeling higher than a sentinel, damn I'm strong on it, who would have thunk it
that when i first begun it for fun,writing rhymes to stack em' one by one, now I'm iller than radiation
I'm gonna keep spittin(?) til' I'm cremated, reincarnated then became my name at the top keeping focused like a spotlight
staying up all night writing rhymes by starlight, real deep with it,
20,000 leagues beneath the hype, I'm impotent, intimate, same with life, twists and turns, perks and achievements
I can't hold back what I'm speaking because it needs to be heard, I know I have power so I use it to infuse my words

I thank you all for showing love to me
I appreciate this unique opportunity
I'm gonna rock so hard so you never stop supporting me
I'm gonna show you how music brings more meaning to life
I thank the fans for showing love to to me
and I respect the fact that you always keep it real with me(?)
It keeps me sensitive when I....(?)
The desire for my insight gives me reason to write

I still can't believe it I'm stunned
land of the rising sun, here I come
I'm here, next stop lower eastern hemisphere
hip hop's hot all around the globe
witness culture unfold before me
absorb it in and write the story, corny as it sounds it makes me want to cry
I was born chosen to live this life, one soul(?)
worlds to explore I'm going down undercover me fans up on top under me(?)
trainers(?) love me I get my own stage, feel the sound brutality
I'm 1000 miles away so things a rhyme can't say let me start from the heart and sincerely state
Thank You
