Take a shortcut
you end up goin' farther
Come down the hill
and goin' up is harder
Go around and around and around the bend
Hate to tell ya you're never gonna reach the end

My baby has a funny way of givin' directions
but there's never gonna be an easy way out
There's a briar patch sittin' in the middle of the field of wide and open spaces
I have no idea why I always seem to want to go along for the ride
The road sign says "No Outlet" whenever we finally make it to our destination

Take a shortcut
you end up goin' farther
Avoid a bumpy road
you'll end up stuck on another
Go around and around and around the ridge
and you'll never make it across the bridge

Yeah, we're always talkin' 'bout makin' changes
but until we do the time it's only just talk
There's a deadbeat hangin' at the 7-11 who will give you all the answers
Yeah, the last one known to ever listen hard found a better station in life
while the rest of the losers still gather to hear that wise old fool
as he sips his coffee

On the roadmap it's a couple of inches
but there's always all kinds of hazards out there
There's a big ol' mountain in the middle of the pass
that takes you where you're goin'
You'll need some power and a 4-wheel drive
Take an extra piece of yourself
for the many moments you wanna turn back
to the days you didn't really feel like tryin'

Take a shortcut
You might as well not bother
Ignore the detour sign
and you might never recover
Go around and around and around that turn
and you're back where you started, boy, you never learn

Take a shortcut
you end up goin' farther
Come down the hill
and goin' up is harder
Go around and around and around that curve
and you'll end up gettin' what you probably deserve

No shortcut
No shortcut
No shortcut
Ya end up goin' farther
or you could be smarter
Go around your life and you know for sure that you'll never get there
