Lyrics

Smooth road, clear day
But why am I the only one
Travelin' this way
How starnge the road you love
Should be so easy
Can there be a detour ahead
Wake up, slow down
Before you crash in that yard
None of that plown
You fool, you're headin'
In the wrong direction
Can't you see the detour ahead
The further you travel
The harder to unraffle
The way he spins around you
Turn back while there is time
Can't you see the danger sign
Subshoulders surround you
Smooth road, clear night
Oh lucky me, that suddenly
I saw the light
I'm turniung back away
From all this trouble
Smooth road, smooth road
No detour ahead
