  • Got a baby girl sleepin' in my bedroom
    And her momma 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 so glad that I did
    And it's crazy to think that one little thing
    Could have changed all of this

    Maybe it didn't turn out like I planned
    Maybe that's why I'm such, such a lucky man

    For every stoplight I didn't make
    Every chance 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 I knew but I didn't know
    Thank God for all I missed
    'Cause it led me here to this

    Like the girl that I loved in high school
    Who said she could do better
    Or the college I wanted to go to
    Till 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

    Every stoplight I didn't make
    Every chance 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 I knew but I didn't know
    Thank God for all I missed
    'Cause it led me here to this

    Oh I cried when my momma passed away
    And now I got an angel
    Looking out for me today
    So nothing's a mistake

    Every stoplight I didn't make
    Every chance 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
    Everything I knew but I didn't know
    Thank God for all I missed
    'Cause it led me here to this

    It led me here to this Writer/s: DARIUS C. RUCKER, KARA DIOGUARDI, FRANK MANDEVILLE V. ROGERS
