Verse 1:
There’s a baby girl sleeping in the bedroom and her momma’s laughing in my arms
there’s a sound of rain on the rooftop and the game’s about to start.
I don’t really know how I got here but I’m sure glad that I did
and it’s crazy to think that one little thing could have changed all of it.
Maybe it didn’t turn out like I planned…
Maybe that’s why I’m such… such a lucky man!

For every stop light I didn’t make
every chance that I did or I didn’t take.
All the nights I went too far
all the girls that broke my heart.
All the doors that I had to close
all the things that I knew but I didn’t know.
Thank God for all I’ve missed!
‘Cuz it led me here to this!

Verse 2:
Like the girl that I loved in high school who said she could do better
all the colleges I wanted to go to until I got that letter…
All the fights and the tears and the heartache I thought I’d never get through.
And the moment I almost gave up all led me here to you.
I didn’t understand it way back when but sittin’ here right now…
it all makes perfect sense!

(( Repeat Chorus ))

How I cried when my momma passed away…
But now I’ve got an angel looking out for me today!
So nothing’s a mistake!

(( Repeat Chorus ))
