2nd Avenue

Album: American Soul (2016)
  • Do you ever think about me?
    In the morning when you brush your hair
    When you're singing to the radio
    Do you ever wish that I was there?
    And when you're friends ask about me
    Does it hurt to hear my name?

    The sun will shine again on 2nd Avenue
    But I'm still fixing what you broke
    Someday soon I will let you go
    When I do I'll let you know

    I'll let you know when there's no pain left
    Sitting in that corner booth
    When I can say "I'm glad to see you"
    And it will really be the truth

    When I can find a place when someone misses no one
    A place where no one is to blame

    The sun will shine again on 2nd Avenue
    But I'm still fixing what you broke
    Someday soon I will let you go
    When I do I'll let you know

    I might even call you
    Just to tell you
    I don't think about you anymore

    The sun will shine again on 2nd Avenue
    But I'm still fixing what you broke
    Someday soon I will let you go
    When I do I'll let you know
