Lyrics

Stepping Stones
(music & lyrics written by Carolyn J Messina)

When trouble comes and things go wrong
And all that's left is to write a song
There is nothing I can do
But breathe and keep on pushing through

We all have crosses to bear
I guess sometimes we're just not aware
With demons and battles to fight
We pray to make it through the night

Cause there ain't no way around 'em
And you can't move them alone
Rocks in the road can be heavy
Unless you make them stepping stones

Many roads to travel along
So I keep on writing this old song
Rivers crossed and bridges burned
The broken hearts are lessons learned

Cause there ain't no way around 'em
And you can't move them alone
Rocks in the road can be heavy
Unless you make them stepping stones

I know we've all been told a million times
That God won't leave you on your own
He'll carry you gently when all your strength is gone
And bless you with the friends you need to carry on
Carry on

When trouble's gone and things go right
Clouds part way and the sun is bright
I look up and all I see
Is the Lord smiling down on me

When there ain't no way around 'em
And you can't move them alone
Rocks in the road can be heavy
Unless you make them…
Yeah, there ain't no way around 'em
I can't move them on my own
Theses rocks in the road are so heavy
So I’m gonna make them stepping stones
