The song conveys a message of thanks, built on the realistic outlook that dreams do no come through for all and the biggest wishes are not always played out. However, we all make progress, we all grow, and in every stage of growth and progress there is the need to recognize that progress, to celebrate it and most importantly to give thanks.
The groovy blend of high life and hip hop instruments are certain to immediately have you nodding your head and moving your body, even if you’re not prone to the boogey.
