The Broken Road

Posted in recovery tagged , , , , , , , , at 11:46 pm by eddejae

For me, this song has more than one meaning. Not only is it about finding true love after a series of disappointments… It’s also about coming to a point in your life where you look back and realize that everything you have gone through has made you the person you are today…

And that you wouldn’t change who that person is for the world.

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 blessed the broken road
That led me straight to you

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

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.

  2. I hadn’t thought about this song in that way before. It’s perfect for accepting that all my past mistakes and life struggles add up to the person I am today. Thank you for pointing this out. I’ll will listen to it with a different frame of mind from now on. 🙂
