THE BROKEN ROAD

I SET OUT ON THE NARROW WAY
MANY YEARS AGO
HOPING I WOULD FIND TRUE LOVE
ALONG THE BROKEN ROAD
I GOT LOST A TIME OR TWO
WIPED MY BROW KEPT PUSHING THROUGH
I COULDNíT SEE HOW EVERY SIGN
POINTED STRAIGHT TO YOU

AND EVERY LONG LOST DREAM
LED ME TO WHERE YOU ARE
OTHERS WHO BROKE MY HEART
THEY WERE JUST NORTHERN STARS
POINTING ME ON MY WAY
INTO YOUR LOVING ARMS
THIS MUCH I KNOW IS TRUE
THAT GOD BLESSED THE BROKEN ROAD
THAT LEAD ME STRAIGHT TO YOU

I THINK ABOUT THE TIME I SPENT
JUST PASSING THROUGH
I LIKE TO FIND THE TIME I LOST
AND GIVE IT BACK TO YOU
YOU JUST SMILE AND TAKE MY HAND
YOU BEEN THERE YOU UNDERSTAND
THAT ITíS ALL PART OF A GRANDER PLAN
THAT IS COMING TRUE

AND EVERY LONG LOST DREAM
LED ME TO WHERE YOU ARE
OTHERS WHO BROKE MY HEART
THEY WERE JUST NORTHERN STARS
POINTING ME ON MY WAY
INTO YOUR LOVING ARMS
THIS MUCH I KNOW IS TRUE
THAT GOD BLESSED THE BROKEN ROAD
THAT LEAD ME STRAIGHT TO YOU

NOW IíM JUST ROLLING HOME
INTO YOUR LOVING ARMS
THIS MUCH I KNOW I KNOW IS TRUE
THAT GOD BLESSED THE BROKEN ROAD
THAT LEAD ME STRAIGHT TO YOU
YES GOD BLESSED THE BROKEN ROAD
THAT LEAD ME STRAIGHT TO YOU

 

 

NEVER GIVE UP (Melissaís Song)

SOMEONE IS WAITING TO HOLD YOU
SHELTERED AND WARM
FROM THE CRUEL WIND THATíS BLOWINí
LOST AND ALONE OH SO FAR FROM HOME
DEEP IN YOUR HEART HEAR ME CALLINí
YESTERDAY LIFE WAS SO EASY
THEN INTO A STORM
YOU VANISHED FROM ME
DONíT BE AFRAID
CAUSE THEYíLL COME A DAY
WHEN WEíLL BE TOGETHER AGAIN

OH, DONíT YOU EVER GIVE UP
TRUST IN LOVE TO SEE YOU THROUGH
NEVER GIVE UP TIL YOUíRE IN MY ARMS
YOU KNOW I BELIEVE IN YOU
YOU ARE THE LIFELINE
THATíS TIED TO MY HEART
OVER THE MOUNTAINS
THAT KEEP US APART
OH DONíT YOU EVER GIVE UP
LOVE WILL SEE YOU THROUGH

LIGHT PAINTS THE HEAVENS ABOVE US
AND I SEE A STAR
THAT CAN LEAD YOU HOMEWARD
HOPE IS THE FIRE
THAT CAN KEEP US ALIVE
DRY EVERY TEAR THAT COULD DROWN US
TIL WEíRE TOGETHER AGAIN

OH, DONíT YOU EVER GIVE UP
TRUST IN LOVE TO SEE YOU THROUGH
NEVER GIVE UP TIL WHATíS LOST IS FOUND
YOU KNOW I BELIEVE IN YOU
PRAY TO THE SPIRIT
THAT LIVES IN YOUR HEART
DONíT FEAR THE DARKNESS
THAT KEEPS US APART
OH DONíT YOU EVER GIVE UP
LOVE WILL SEE YOU THROUGH
OH DONíT YOU EVER GIVE UP
LOVE WILL SEE YOU THROUGH

 

 

THOSE LUCKY FEW

WHO WAS FIRST TO GAZE UP AT THE MOON
SAIL THE DEEPEST OCEANS
GAMBLE AND NOT LOSE
WELL I DONíT KNOW THOSE LUCKY FEW
ALL I KNOW IíM LUCKIER THAN THEM

WHO WAS FIRST TO EVER MAKE BELIEVE
CHASE AFTER A RAINBOW
BRING PEARLS UP FROM THE SEA
WELL I DONíT KNOW THOSE LUCKY FEW
ALL I KNOW IíM LUCKIER THAN THEM

WHO WAS FIRST TO SEE YOUR PERFECT FACE
HEAR A CHILDíS LAUGHTER
OR FIND A HOLY PLACE
WELL I DONíT KNOW THOSE LUCKY FEW
ALL I KNOW IíM LUCKIER THAN THEM

WHO WAS THE ONE WHO MADE YOU MINE
COME AND SHARE MY LONELY FIRE
MAKE CIRCLES IN THE SKY
WELL I DONíT KNOW THOSE LUCKY FEW
ALL I KNOW IíM LUCKIER THAN THEM
IíM MUCH LUCKIER THAN THEM
IíM MUCH LUCKIER THAN THEM
BECAUSE OF YOU, BECAUSE OF YOU, BECAUSE OF YOU
