  • Lyrics
  • "'2nd Avenue' was that post-breakup thing where you're sort of in limbo, and you're kind of sitting there, and you have the memories," Vassar told Nash Country Daily. "It's a continuation of life. We broke up or we're over, but things are gonna be okay. You just kind of wonder, do you ever think about me? You do wonder if that goes through somebody else's mind, because you know you certainly do. I'll be thinking about this or something will bring up a thought of someone and you just kind of wonder."
  • Vassar wrote this with his guitarist and longtime collaborator Jeffery Smith, and with fellow country songwriter Charlie Black.
