An original song expressing gratitude for the universe and giving thanks for the folks who supported the Colored Girls Hustle Hard Mixtape Indiegogo fundraising campaign.

lyrics

VERSE (Taja)
Here we go here we go here we go
Giving thanks for all I that know
Giving thanks for mama and the fam
And ancestors who came before dem
Said I got what I need
Gratitude is a seed
In the unknown
Infinite possibility

I travel safe
Keep the faith
Food to eat
Place to sleep
Make mistakes
Sewing what I reap

You give
I give
You give
I give
Give thanks
Do it again

You give
I give
You give
I give
Give thanks
Do it again

VERSE (Jessica)
Look to the moon, that moves the ocean
Stirs our souls and keeps us flowing
In this solar atmosphere
Giving thanks for being here
For being heard, for being present
All our blessings and our lessons

Call it god or call it chi
Call it divine energy
It's magnetic how we grooving
So Kinetic, making movements
How the universe conspires
Keeps us lifted, brings us higher
