  • I've found a place to live
    I got it the hard way
    Of living in the chance, to give
    I got it the long way

    Nobody here can tear me loose
    They tell me there's no escape on Heartache Avenue

    I'm living at 22 Heartache Avenue
    Come and see me tonight I got something for you
    I've been hurt so I don't want to commit to you
    You're hesitating
    What's that, a no or a yes, stop gazing
    Come to my palace, its amazing
    Once you come you won't want to leave
    You can stay
    You can start by having a chat and then a glass of brandy
    Then I will start playing mind games
    I know about girls when I play mind games
    She's playing hard to get
    That's one of my games, I'm good at it
    My brain is shaped on mind games since I'm 19, 0 1 7 9 days
    Its 0 4 are 6, ride by days now fast lane days are here
    I like this
    My heart is broken but my mind is moving
    Got my music career I'm movin'
    Alright

    I've found a place to live
    I got it the hard way
    Of living in the chance, to give
    I got it the long way

    Nobody here can tear me loose
    They tell me there's no escape on Heartache Avenue

    You got some funny ways about you
    Can't live with you, I can't live without you
    Love me too but I'm doubting you do the same way ‘cause I'm crazy about you
    It's as if you don't care
    Blowing hot and cold air
    We talk but you don't ever sound there
    Tell you how I feel but you don't ever want to hear
    I'm getting mixed messages, funny text messages
    Could have left it, should have left it
    I'm feeling sharp pains in my left tit
    Goes to show that I'm a skill for you more than a bit
    And give and take I know we both do shit.
    I don't want a piece
    I want the whole of the cake
    Just think about what a great couple we make
    My mind's made up
    Mind you, I know that I'm on the Heartache Avenue waiting for my heart to break.

    I've found a place to live
    I got it the hard way
    Of living in the chance, to give
    I got it the long way

    Nobody here can tear me loose
    They tell me there's no escape on Heartache Avenue

    Don't get it you see
    These days I wear my heart on my sleeve
    I just want to be free and do the birds and the bees with whoever I please
    You want to meet me at the yard?
    I'll be there in a minute
    If you're willing to give me something that I want to get
    I don't care for a second
    We can go upstairs, you do my pairs
    You pop …… like weapons
    No one's looking to settle down yet
    I left my heart on my jacket downstairs in my crib
    I guess right here I'm ruthless
    I'm shooting Cupid now
    This heart, it's you it's about, I am drawing it down
    I'm pulling down skirts and I'm down low
    want to get down with some girls that don't like my attitude now
    I turn my back to ‘em
    I ain't chattin' to ‘em
    If you want to talk to me meet me at the avenue

    I've found a place to live
    I got it the hard way
    Of living in the chance, to give
    I got it the long way

    Nobody here can tear me loose
    They tell me there's no escape on Heartache Avenue Writer/s: MASON, TIBENHAM
