On My Way to You

From the album The Road That I Must Take


I thought I knew what I wanted
So long ago
Walking down the straight and narrow
On the wrong road
I didn’t know
How could I
I was lost in the trees
So many fears and tears would follow
Until you found me

When I look back now, I know it all was worth it
Every wrong turn, bridge burned, all the heartache, too
Hindsight helps me see
Each mistake was meant to be
A guiding light to lead me on my way to you

I didn’t know what I needed
‘Til I looked in your eyes
And couldn’t find the words to wipe away
The tears you cried
So I reached out to hold you
‘Cause I’d been there before
And suddenly neither one of us
Was lonely anymore

When I look back now, I know it all was worth it
Every wrong turn, bridge burned, all the heartache, too
Hindsight helps me see
Each mistake was meant to be
A guiding light to lead me on my way to you

I can’t even begin to trace
All the twists and turns that led to this place
But here I am, and here you are
It’s like we’ve been following the same guiding star

When I look back now, I know it all was worth it
Every wrong turn, bridge burned, all the heartache, too
Hindsight helps me see
Each mistake was meant to be
A guiding light to lead me on my way to you

When I look back now, I know it all was worth it
Every wrong turn, bridge burned, all the heartache, too
Hindsight helps me see
Each mistake was meant to be
A guiding light to lead me on my way to you

Hindsight helps me see
Each mistake was meant to be
A guiding light to lead me on my way to you
