Detour - Lyrics

I never want to go back there.
I never want the things to change.
But there's one thing that I want,
And that's for the memories to remain.

Cause all the songs I hear them singing,
Every movie, every book,
I don't think I'd understand them,
If it wasn't for you.

And looking back now I realise,
I was nothing but a detour in your eyes.
You became the greatest love I ever knew.
While I was just a mistake to you.

You found your way back together.
You found your way to happiness.
And it's not only for the better
No, I see now it's for the best.

That doesn't mean we didn't happen.
That doesn't mean we weren't real.
These days the way you're acting,
Well that's just how you made me feel.

Oh, and looking back now, I realise,
I was nothing but a detour in your eyes.
You became the greatest love I ever knew,
While I was just a mistake to you.

At least I am a chapter in your book.
You don't know how long my recovery took.
Ooh oh ha
For you it was a year and that's all it will be.
But that year was me.
Oh that year was me.

And looking back now I realise,
I was nothing but a detour in your eyes.
You became the greatest love I've ever knew.
While I was just a mistake to you.
I was just a mistake to you.

I never wanted to go back there.
I never wanted things to change.
But there's one thing that I want,
And that's for the memories to remain.
