Detour

I'm just a detour, the one that you avoided again
I know my sadness will never be yours to mend
Still I hate this damn street for the memories it holds
But I'm stuck here waiting
in these worn down clothes

I'll be your detour
(I will keep you as a memory)
You're just another line by my pen
All road signs pointing
To my dead end

I knew these sidewalks would never hold much comfort
And now I'm left to wonder why
Your arms didn't either
Life was never meant to be just right
Things were probably the worse for us tonight
(I will keep you as a memory)
Life was never meant to be just right
But things were probably...
(It's the only thing you should be)

I'm just a detour, the one that you avoided again
I know my sadness will never be yours to mend
Still I hate this damn street for the memories it holds
But I'm stuck here waiting
in these worn down clothes

I'll be your detour
(I will keep you as a memory)
You're just another line by my pen
All road signs pointing
To my dead end

I'll keep you as a memory
And that's the only thing you should be
You know that time can't help us now
And I'll be waiting on you somehow

I miss the times in Thousand Oaks
And I can never thank you enough, for what you did for me
How you helped me see so clearly
Still I just can't believe that I'm just a detour…

...the one that you avoided again
I know my sadness will never be yours to mend
Still I hate this damn street for the memories it holds
But I'm stuck here waiting
In these worn down clothes

I'll be your detour
You're just another line by my pen
All road signs pointing
To my dead end
