Verse 1
I set out on a narrow way many years ago
Hoping I would find true love along the broken road
But I got lost a time or two
Wiped my brow and kept pushing through
I couldn't see how every sign pointed straight to you

Chorus
Every long lost dream led me to where you are
Others who broke my heart they were like northern stars
Pointing me on my way into your loving arms
This much I know is true
That God blessed the broken road
That led me straight to you

Verse 2
I think about the years I spent just passing through
I'd like to have the time I lost and give it back to you
But you just smile and take my hand
You've been there you understand
It's all part of a grander plan that is coming true

Chorus
Every long lost dream led me to where you are
Others who broke my heart they were like northern stars
Pointing me on my way into your loving arms
This much I know is true
That God blessed the broken road
That led me straight to you


Now I'm just rolling home
Into my lover's arms
This much I know is true
That God blessed the broken road
That led me straight to you

That God blessed the broken road
That led me straight to you.

    That no matter how many roads we go down there is one special person waiting on us when we least expect it. We just can not give up on love.

    It's hard to get on that narrow path that god has planned for each and everyone of us. Few people ever make it. It's a true blessing to make it on that rode and even better: write a song about it

    Hoping i have met that someone that these lyrics have meaning to. Somedays its 1 step foreard and 2 steps back. Praying it is meant to be or god shows me differently very soon. However, when you give your heart to someone, it is not easy to ask for it back.
