Every Avenue You’ll Never Know

All the little reasons that you’ll never know who I am

All the little secrets that you can never understand

You’d be there forever, (hey hey) is what you said

But you always let me down (hey hey)

It always gave me such surprise (hey hey)

I’m used to it by now (hey hey)

You are the reason that I’m afraid to leave

You are the reason that I never will believe

And now that I see

I thank you for the meaning

That I thought I’d never find…

I’m a better man than you

All the little reasons that I never said these words to you

All the little lies that you told; you were never true

And I gave you a hand, but you never trusted (?)

And you always let me down (woah)

I’ll never get a chance to love you

You are the reason that I’m afraid to leave

You are the reason that I never will believe

And now that I see

I thank you for the meaning

That I thought I’d never find…

I’m a better man than you

Better man than you

Better man that you

All the little reasons that you’ll never know who I am

All the little secrets that you can never understand

You’d be there forever, is what you said

But you always let me down

It always gave me such surprise

I’m used to it by now

And now that I see

I thank you for the meaning

That I thought I’d never find…

I’m a better man than you

Better than you (hey hey)

Better than you (better than you)

(hey hey)

I’m a better man than you

(hey)

Every Avenue Watch The World

We’re too young to figure out how,

Forget to breathe once in a while

Fade out, no sound

The white lines are slower now

Face up, run back

Chase it down, spin around

Watch the world from the ground

The crush and burn leaves us dry,

Picks us up, back to life

Oh oh, oh oh, oh oh,

Watch the world

Oh oh, oh oh, oh oh,

Watch the world

In the darkness it all comes out

In the moment it all makes sense

Fade out, no sound

The white lines are faster now

Face up, run back

Chase it down, spin around

Watch the world from the ground

The crush and burn leaves us dry,

Picks us up, back to life

Oh oh, oh oh, oh oh,

Watch the world

Oh oh, oh oh, oh oh,

Watch the world

Oh oh, oh oh, oh oh, ooh, oh, ooh

Chase it down, spin around

Watch the world from the ground

The crush and burn leaves us dry,

Picks us up back to life

Chase it down, spin around

Watch the world from the ground

The crush and burn leaves us dry,

Picks us up, back to life

Oh oh, oh oh, oh oh,

Watch the world

Oh oh, oh oh, oh oh,

Watch the world

Yeah, yeah

Yeah, yeah

Chase it down (oh oh)

Spin around (oh oh)

Watch the world (oh oh)

Watch the world

The crush and burn (oh oh)

Leaves us dry (oh oh)

Picks us up (oh oh)

Watch the world

Oh oh, oh oh, oh oh,

Watch the world (oh, oh, oh)

Yeah, yeah

Yeah, yeah

Every Avenue For Always, Forever

Another late night driving around

We’re losing sunlight so we head downtown

To Woodward off Charlotte Street

The old place that we used to meet

We were young and we lived it up

But those nights never lasted long enough

Looking back we’re so naive

What happened to the days when we shared our dreams

If I could go back now

I wouldn’t change a thing

Oh it feels so good

To say

Guess we made it this far

Guess we’re doing alright

Looks like we made it out alive

Yeah we made our mistakes

But we followed our hearts

Even though we drift apart

For always, forever

Weathered yellow still frames in my head

For always, forever

The sun rise would beat us to sleep

We didn’t wanna go home so slept on the beach

Oh the summer never felt so sweet

I still feel the sand in underneath my feet

Memories of the nights that faded

I don’t know how the hell we made it

Looking back we had everything

Those were the days when we shared our dreams

If I could go back now

I wouldn’t change a thing

Oh it feels so good

To say

Guess we made it this far

Guess we’re doing alright

Looks like we made it out alive

Yeah we made our mistakes

But we followed our hearts

Even though we drift apart

For always, forever

The secondhand kiss of a summer night

For always, forever

Even though some time has passed and we’ve gone our separate ways

No matter how far apart we’ll always have our memories

If I could go back now

I wouldn’t change a thing

Oh it feels so good

To say

Oh it feels so good…

Guess we made it this far

Guess we’re doing alright

Looks like we made it out alive

Yeah we made our mistakes

But we followed our hearts

Even though we drift apart

For always, forever

Endless copper street lamps on my mind

For always, forever

At Woodward off Charlotte Street

Every Avenue A Story To Tell Your Friends

It was the type of feeling that can’t be explained

The way she moved her lips drove me insane

Now I’m left here in the wake of something more.

She made it hard to leave as she stood by the door

In a v-neck T-shirt and nothing more than

A single tear rolling down her cheek, whoa

Don’t go away again,

I want to be more than a phone call at 4am.

Seems like every time you come back home

It’s just to steal my heart and leave.

Don’t go away again,

I want to be more than a story to tell your friends.

Seems like every time you come back home

It’s just to make me fall again.

It’s getting hard, I know, believe me I feel you

I can’t fall asleep knowing you’re not home

Is it too much to ask, can’t you just pick up the phone?

We’ve had our share of fights,

I know it’s not easy when I’m never home,

I have my own dreams

Like you have your life planned out back home

Don’t go away again,

I want to be more than a phone call at 4am.

Seems like every time you come back home

It’s just to steal my heart and leave.

Don’t go away again,

I want to be more than a story to tell your friends.

Seems like every time you come back home

It’s just to make me fall again.

And I, will always stand between us

And hold you so high

Just enough to watch you fade

Tonight you’ll cry yourself asleep

As I lay awake in some far off city

Pretend you’re lying next to me

Eyes wide open dreaming of you

Don’t go away again,

I want to be more than a phone call at 4am.

Seems like every time you come back home

It’s just to steal my heart and leave.

Don’t go away again,

I want to be more than a phone call at 4am.

Seems like every time you come back home

It’s just to steal my heart and leave.

Don’t go away again,

I want to be more than a story to tell your friends.

Seems like every time you come back home

It’s just to make me fall again.

Every Avenue The Hell Back Home

If it all was a dream then it was worth the memories

If I make it out alive then know that this got the best of me

My knuckles are white but I can’t get a grip

If this is the last song I write

I’ll make all the words fit

From the roof of this house

I watch the sun go down

On the town that I’ve cursed since I turned 16

A set of keys, I was California dreamin’

Drive, just drive

And I’ve been saying that I changed my ways

Disharmony seems to be my favorite word lately

And love had its hand up but I pushed it away

And I damn myself for the words I didn’t say

And all the things I said I wouldn’t do, I’ve done

When things get hard all I think to do is run

But all I want is something to call my own

I let my heart, woah, get the best of me this time

I lost myself and all that mattered most to me

But one thing doesn’t make a man

One thing doesn’t make a man

I can’t believe all the things that I’ve seen

I was moving so fast, forgot to take it all in

It’s the sad times and tears, and being alone

That makes you think of the times that mattered most

And now it’s 5 years later and I’m still all alone

My closest thing to a friend, quarter dime in a payphone

And now I’m feeling all the pain that I’ve caused

Behind this broke down piano in the back of this bar

So this is California

The sun still sets the exact same was as back home

On that rooftop, the sun still sets the same

I let my heart, woah, get the best of me this time

I lost myself and all that mattered most to me

But one thing doesn’t make a man

But one thing doesn’t make a man

The lies I told, the hearts I broke

The things I had, I never told

The tip of my tongue, fingertips

Translate every word I must have missed

Forgot to mention when I lived back home

And now I’m going back to the only thing I ever knew

Woah, oh, get the best of me this time

I lost myself and all that mattered most to me

But one thing doesn’t make a man

I let my heart, woah, get the best of me this time

I lost myself and all that mattered most to me

But one thing doesn’t make a man

But one thing doesn’t make a man

Every Avenue No One But You

Tonight, you’re mine

Every Avenue Whatever Happened To You

You got your new pills, some kind of cheap thrills

we use to bet who’d be the first one to make it out

You got your rat race, i got my goose chase.

were running circles round the same thing, aren’t we now?

But time will never wait.

I learned the hard way,

cause I don’t recognize

the face in front of me

I am the same as I was when I was younger,

whatever happened to you?

I’ll never change with the lines on my face,

I’m still the person you knew.

whatever happened to you?

You know you had a chance,

the world in your hands

you could have had it all

if you’d have got your shit straight

You’re off the deep end, and all your old friends

Are sick of drowning in your sorrows. Listen now.

We fought the same fight, and i stood by your side

but I can’t stick around and watch you crumble

Time will never wait ill learn the hard way

cuz I won’t recognize the face in front of me

I am the same as I was when I was younger,

whatever happened to you?

I’ll never change with the lines on my face,

I’m still the person you knew,

whatever happened to you?

I am the same as I was when I was younger

I am the same as I was when I was younger,

whatever happened to you?

I’ll never change with the lines on my face,

I’m still the same person you knew.

whatever happened to you?

Every Avenue Saying Goodbye

I watched the sun come up over the Chicago skyline

Drove through a whole night just to make it right

The last thing I remember, you were begging me not to go

You had that look of sadness on your face, that only I would know

I thought a lot about the summers passed

Your hair in your eyes

And how we spent the whole night saying goodbye

Saying goodbye, like it was the last time

I thought I forgot my past

But that all changed today

I know it was wrong of me to try to throw this all away

So if you give it just one more try

I’ll give you everything you need

She said

“Just tell me what changed your mind, what brought you back to me?”

And I said

I thought a lot about the summers passed

Your hair in your eyes

And how we spent the whole night saying goodbye

Saying goodbye

We always thought that those days would last

We felt so hard

And how we spent the whole night saying goodbye

Saying goodbye, like it was the last time

Another month that’s faded away

Minutes feel like hours, hours like days

When will I see, what can she say?

She said

I thought a lot about the summers passed

Your hair in your eyes

And how we spent the whole night saying goodbye

Saying goodbye

We always thought that those days would last

We felt so hard

And how we spent the whole night saying goodbye

Saying goodbye

Saying goodbye, saying goodbye

Like it was the last time

Every Avenue If I Knew

Couldn’t believe it when I heard it

It was enough to make a heartbeat stop

Reminded me of the uncertain and love that we’ve lost

I know I took our hearts for granted

I never thought the sun would fail to rise

How am I to understand this all on my own

If I knew it’d be the last time

Id try a little harder

Make that goodbye last a little longer

Woulda held you just a little stronger

If I, I knew it’d be the last time

You know you never see it coming

Time always finds a way to pass us by

But I still feel you all around me when I close my eyes

All the flowers on the side walk and every single tear that we cried

How I wish that I could change it and bring you back tonight

If I knew it’d be the last time

Id try a little harder

Make that goodbye last a little longer

Woulda held you just a little stronger

If I, I knew it’d be the last time

So Lauren lay your head down

I’ll be right beside you

So Lauren close your eyes now

(I’ll be right behind you)

Couldn’t believe it when I heard it

It was enough to make a heartbeat stop

If I knew it’d be the last time

Id try a little harder

Make that goodbye last a little longer

Woulda held you just a little stronger

If I, I knew it’d be the last time

Id try a little harder

Make that goodbye last a little longer

Woulda held you just a little stronger

If I knew, I knew it’d be the last time
