Bless the Broken Road Lyrics
When I was growing up, one of my favorite songs was Bless the Broken Road by Bob Dylan. Years later, when I was a teenager, I saw the movie Blinded by the Devil and was struck by the imagery of that same song. In the movie, there were a number of people that took this road before they reached their destination. The road was a long, narrow way leading to a final destination.
In Bless the Broken Road lyrics, Dylan described what it was like to be on this road to paradise. There were times when he wanted to stay the night and be with his family, but then realized that life was too short and he’d had enough. He wrote that song about how he wished that he could stay on this road for ever, but the reality was that he had to get through it.
Most of us have had similar experiences. We’ve all traveled a long, narrow way. Sometimes, we’ve gotten lost and been told that it’s okay to keep going. Other times, we’ve seen promises made that weren’t fulfilled. Then there are times when the road has gotten so narrow that we finally come to an end. At these times, we must push ourselves to keep going.
This is what makes Bless the Broken Road lyrics so powerful. They speak of a journey that isn’t finished. They speak of a broken road that is full of dead ends. They speak of leaving those who loved us behind, who would find us in the middle of nowhere, searching for a greater purpose in our lives.
What did I find out after having this song done? It was simple. I found that nothing can bring me closer to my beloved husband more than having sung these words with him on a daily basis. He would see my face when I was crying, he would see my hands when I picked up the pen, and he would find true love in a different way than I did before. It’s a beautiful, humble thing.
Bless the Broken Road by Kevin Dunn is a wonderful gift to anyone who loves the blues. The words are simple yet profound. If anything can help you see the light at the end of the tunnel, then this is the album for you.
A road trip is not always a good time to sing road songs, but if you need a good place to start, this is it. Bless the Broken Road lyrics touch on the good, bad, and ugly of life. They show you what’s in and what’s out, and give you hope. The beauty of this break up is that even though you may have lost the love of your life, it doesn’t mean that the love of your life has lost you.
Get on your way now. Reach for the sky and feel the peace that lies there. Reach for the stars, and believe in miracles. Sing along as you get on your road trip with Bless the Broken Road. You’ll come through just fine.
