Detour - Lyrics

When you wanna go right but they make you go left
And you think you're alright but you're running out of breath
And you're up all night cause you really haven't slept
Detour detour
When you're chasing your dreams but you're running out of steam
And you tried everything everything in between
Now you're hanging from a string if you know what I mean
Detour detour

I'm treated like a reject
Never given respect
Sometimes I feel alone
Just like I have no home
I give them what they need
Never what they want
I just want to succeed
I will never taunt
I've had a couple road blocks
So I had to turn around
They didn't like my music
Because I had a different sound

When you wanna go right but they make you go left
And you think you're alright but you're running out of breath
And you're up all night cause you really haven't slept
Detour detour
When you're chasing your dreams but you're running out of steam
And you tried everything everything in between
Now you're hanging from a string if you know what I mean
Detour detour

I had to take a detour
But I really wasn't for sure
Which way I had to go
So I just took em all
Now everybody's watching
I pray I never drop the ball
Sometimes I feel I'm cornered
With my back against the wall
I gotta meet my destiny with a different recipe
You can call this food for thought and I think you'd agree

When you wanna go right but they make you go left
And you think you're alright but you're running out of breath
And you're up all night cause you really haven't slept
Detour detour
When you're chasing your dreams but you're running out of steam
And you tried everything everything in between
Now you're hanging from a string if you know what I mean
Detour detour
