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

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 bless the broken road
That led me straight to you

I think about the years I've 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

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 bless the broken road
That led me straight to you

But know I'm just rolling home into my lover's arms
This much I know is true
That god bless the broken road
That led me straight to you

    My fiance picked out this song for "our song". I had never heard it before he played it for me at our local hang out. Here is this handsome 6'2" manly man with such a big, huge caring heart, and he picked this song to be ours. When I listened to the words, I knew that he new me to the core; that all of the hardships I had been through being a divorced single mom, the job failures and successes, the loss of health, wealth and trials and tribulations, the loss of loves before I met him, all made me the woman that he fell in love with! He has had some trials and errors in his life, and together, we are living a good, happy and loving life. We are getting married tomorrow, and this song will be our song and words will be handed out to our guests and family. Had I not lived the life God handed me, I would never have become the woman that my soon to be husband was attracted to and fell in love with. He really does get me! Never Give Up, love is out there, just pray and believe!

    I was married to a man who beaat me. Then separted. And the violence became far worse. After five long years of dating, being disappointed and in despair, i met the man i love. God led me straight to you by way of the broken road. And every heart break, every struggle and strife was worth the joy i feel knowing i'll spend the rest of my life with you.

    I,a man ,was in a terribly abusive marriage. She hurt me with her hands, lies, deceit,hatefull, horrible cutting words,and then there was the lies she would tell about me,honest guys even when she was hitting me i never hit her.not one time . I turned to drugs and alchol instead,it help with the pain ,embareasement,and self hate ,for a while.but when it came back it was ten fold ,i thought i had to die,so i started trying different ways didn't work for me,i was getting so pissed i thought ,oh well this life on this broken road would be my hell.i gave up! Wandering around my hell looking at my feet on a crumbleing road ,you made me look up ,you talked to me my first thought was "you can see me?i flinched the first time you touched me because i didn't want to get the preaty angel dirty,wow its been 8 years now and because of our broken roads life feels more like heaven,thank you kari my loving wife and best friend ,and teacher

    The lost years and failed relationships that served to prepare me for the love of my life. Making me appreciative of the good that has finally come my way.
