Macklemore – Glorious (feat. Skylar Grey) (On The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon) (Live)

When I open my eyes, hope I see you shine
Got a chance to start again
They don’t make you who you are
I made it through the darkest part of the night
Seek and I find I can sleep when I die
The world is up for grabs
My mama told me never bow your head, woo!
Get out my wake, I’m running late, what can I say?
Another sprint, another step
And now I see the sunrise
Legend it’s exodus searching for euphoria
Trudging through the mud to find the present, no ignoring us
The world is up for grabs

I said amen and hallelujah, let me testify too
My grandma smiling down on me like woo, that boy got bars
We’re planting a flag they don’t understand
And the second time is the last time that somebody mentions your name
Now I feel glorious, glorious
When I open my eyes, hope I see you shine
You know I’m back like I never left
I feel glorious, glorious
I feel glorious, glorious
Okay, okay, yes I do
I’m on my wave, I’m on my wave
Got a chance to start again
It’s who I am, how could I forget?
[Chorus: Skylar Grey]
We’re planting a flag they don’t understand
You know that we been going in
And now I see the sunrise
En garde, things are just things
[Bridge: Skylar Grey]
We gon’ be alright, put that on my life

I got a new attitude and a lease on life
Got 20,000 deep off in the street like we some warriors
[Verse 1: Macklemore]
I made it through the darkest part of the night

[Verse 2: Macklemore]
Since we hopped out that Delorean (Delorean, yeah we win)
I heard you die twice, once when they bury you in the grave
And some peace of mind
I made it through the darkest part of the night
[Chorus: Skylar Grey]
Now I feel glorious, glorious
And shit I’m straight
The crib looking Victorian (oh yes it is)

We gon’ be alright, put that on my life
Another morning, a morning, don’t let self get in my way
Another day, another breath
It’s who I am, how could I forget?
And now I see the sunrise
We posted on the porch, my family’s glasses to the stars
[Chorus: Skylar Grey]
I feel glorious, glorious
I was born for this, born for this
I feel glorious, glorious
I feel glorious, glorious
Can’t pack up a U-Haul and take it with you when you’re gone
Now I feel glorious, glorious
I’m feeling glorious
It’s who I am, how could I forget?
Wanna piece of the pie, grab the keys to the ride
I was born for this, born for this

Did I look out for the people or did I do it all for fame?
I feel glorious, glorious

I got my breath, I got my faith and I remember why I came
Got a chance to start again
So when I leave here on this earth, did I take more than I gave?
Been chasing dreams, but I never slept
I was born for this, born for this
