Chorus: I'm throwing reins around this broken heart of mine; Lord, it ain't easy to do
I'm walking on a road less traveled upn, never along with a friend like You

She was married at 21, widowed at 23
Spent two years of sweet serenity
Now she's back to a lifetime of grief
Born into a hard world, fighting most days of her life
She turned 50 when she was just 5
The day that her parents would die

She's throwing reins around this broken heart of hers, Lord, it ain't easy to do
She's walking on a road less traveled upon, never alone with a friend like You

He always had it all, everything money could buy
Had crowds of adoring fans, never by myself in his life
But he faints and he falls in a room full of so-called friends
Doctors say he was fortunate and he says "He'll never be alone again"

He's throwing reins around this broken heart of his; Lord, it ain't easy to do
He's walking on a road less traveled upon, never alone with a friend like You

I need a friend who will be there, in spite of my misery
I need a friend unaware, that don't care if I'm a celebrity
A friend to help me face pharaoh
A friend in my cave I can trust
A friend in war and sin and peace and love
And a friend to remind me of the Friend above

Chorus
