I once had a small guitar
That could never play a tune
and no music was ever heard
because its strings were broken
I waited long for someone
to come and fix my little toy
but nobody seemed to really care
and the strings remained broken
How could you play from a broken string?
what love song can a broken heart bring?
can a lonely night give a happy dream?
can a broken dream sing a happy theme?
My guitar has long been gone
but my heart still longs for a song
like strings that are broken
it could not enjoy a happy tune
Then you came to me one day
your hand touched my broken life
like strings that were long broken
now restored to play a tune.
Now that you fixed these broken strings
A happy song will I always sing
Since the day you fixed my broken life
a dying song to your glory will rise.
Now I'll be singing for you all along the way
