lyrics

They say it’s not the place you’re goin’
But the trip you take
And all the lessons learned along the way

And some times all the signs are showin’
It’s time to pull the brake
and choose a new direction that’s where we are today

We’ve come upon a crossroads
and this is where we’ll part
It’s time to go our separate ways
and make a brand new start

It’s just a BUMP IN THE ROAD
On the journey to find true love
And there’s nothin’ left to do love
Our detour here must end
A BUMP IN THE ROAD
Searchin’ for Love’s destination
And it’s no small consolation
I can still call you my friend

Each of us can make a claim
of needs that weren’t met
And specify the hurt from where and when

But I don’t feel the need to blame
and I have no regret
‘Cause what I’ve learned is priceless
And I’d do it all again

Although it is not ending
Like the way that we had planned
I know our time has helped me
To become a better man

It’s just a BUMP IN THE ROAD
On the journey to find true love
And there’s nothin’ left to do love
Our detour here must end
A BUMP IN THE ROAD
Searchin’ for Love’s destination
And it’s no small consolation
I can still call you my friend

As we say our last goodbye
while you pack your last dress
And the time has come for you to go
Please understand if I don’t cry
I don’t care any less
It’s just that all these feelings are hard for me to show

I know it all will hit me
After you walk out the door
And we start down a path
where we’re not lovers anymore

It was a BUMP IN THE ROAD
On the journey to find true love
And there’s nothin’ left to do love
Our detour here must end
A BUMP IN THE ROAD
Searchin’ for Love’s destination
And it’s no small consolation
I can still call you my friend
