ONE WRONG TURN

One wrong turn is all it takes
and there ain't many signs -
you only get a few breaks.
Some get more. Some get less.
One wrong turn leads to the next.

The days go slow and the years go fast.
The future you look for is soon the past.
You seldom end up where you thought you would.
One wrong turn can change it all for good.

One wrong turn is all it takes
and there ain't many signs -
you only get a few breaks.
Some get more. Some get less.
One wrong turn leads to the next.

Love ain't a hug. Love ain't a kiss.
Love is every day doing this, n'that, n'this.
We put in our time and we put in our heart.
One wrong turn can tear it all apart.

One wrong turn is all it takes
and there ain't many signs -
you only get a few breaks.
Some get more. Some get less.
One wrong turn leads to the next.

Where's that little house with the porch light on
in a stand of cedar and the highway gone -
Good smells of cooking sweet garden loam -
I'd have thought by now I'd have found my home.

One wrong turn is all it takes
and there ain't many signs -
you only get a few breaks.
Some get more. Some get less.
One wrong turn leads to the next.

I guess I've been absurdly excessive.

Sometimes it's hard not to take that wrong turn though, isn't it?

How many wrong turns have I made in life? Countless! Hindsight is 20/20, isn't it, Es?
