REDEMPTION

Story Behind The Song

Song Length 2:59 Genre Country - Contemporary, Country - Religious
Tempo Slow (71 - 90) Lead Vocal Male Vocal
Mood Glad Subject Love at First Sight, Unrequited Love
Language English Era 2000 and later

Lyrics

Redemption (words and music by Alan Gillis)

Verse 1
If I lived my life again would I make the same mistakes?
When things go wrong you find a new direction
But the road that led to you was surely written in the plan

The road that led to my redemption

Verse 2
If I could start again, I know I'd need to find you
You came into my world. You gave me reason
If I could start again. If I could find the master plan
I'd write some new directions
To the road that led to my redemption

Bridge
I've wasted so much time on many paths that took me nowhere
Doing what friends expected me to do
And then I opened up the door to find your haloed silhouette before me
Hypnotising, mesmerising, leading me to new horizons
Burning to my soul

Verse 3
If I could live my life again I know somehow I'd find you
The way to you was written in the plan
The stars would help me chart a course to find the right direction
To lead me to the road
The road that led to my redemption
