There's a place off Ocean Avenue Where I used to sit and talk with you We were both sixteen and it felt so right Sleeping all day, staying up all night Staying up all night
There's a place on the corner of Cherry Street We would walk on the beach in our barefeet We were both eighteen and it felt so right Sleeping all day, staying up all night Staying up all night
If I could find you now things would get better We could leave this town and run forever Let your waves crash down on me And take me away, yeah yeah
There's a piece of you that's here with me It's everywhere I go, it's everything I see When I sleep I dream and it gets me by I can make believe that you're here tonight That you're here tonight
If I could find you now things would get better We could leave this town and run forever I know somewhere, somehow we'll be together Let your waves crash down on me And take me away, yeah
I remember the look in your eyes When I told you that this was goodbye You were begging me not tonight Not here, not now We're looking up at the same night sky We keep pretending the sun will not rise We'll be together for one more night Somewhere, somehow
If I could find you now things would get better We could leave this town and run forever I know somewhere, somehow we'll be together Let your waves crash down on me And take me away, yeah yeah

Nodiffrt from Orange CountyAfter moving here I always assumed this was about Laguna Beach or Huntington Beach because Ocean Avenue and Cherry Street both exist here. Crazy thing is I grew up visiting my grandparents and Florida. Honestly the music suits the California aesthetic better. Weird.
Ben from Jax, FlOk some of you got the wrong info somewhere, so allow me to clear it all up. First, the song is not about a guy and a girl, in an interview lead singer Ryan Key says " the song is about a time in place where they were writing and hanging out and having a good time, and the song is about trying to get back to that creative space" second, the song is not actually about ocean avenue but rather ocean street in downtown jacsonville, i spoke with lead guitarist Ben Harper on FB and he told me its about ocean street but avenue sounded better. Third cherry street is about a 10min drive to the beach so you literally cant walk on the beach on the corner of it, cherry street is in jacksonville beach and it is where lead singer Ryan Key grew up at his parents house....on cherry street. I grew up with these guys (the original yellowcard, not the ones from Cali) just wanted to set everything straight.
Hannah from Gustavus, OhThis song makes me think of summertime. I remember summer 2007, my sister and I went to Cedar Point with our cousins from Detroit and this came on in the car on the way there. I think it can be about anything you miss - the band has said it was about the atmosphere of their hometown. Or it could be about an old friend you don't see anymore. Either way, awesome song.
Dylan from Pittsburgh, Pawaiting game is about a couple sitting together on a rooftop during a flood from hurricane katrina
Karen from Atlantic Beach, FlI can relate being that I now live in Atlantic Beach, FL . Just miles down the road from Ocean Avenue. Have been at the beach in front of Cherry street. But no matter where you are from, we all have a similar story to tell.
Blake from Chico, CaThis song is sad for me because to me it's about a guy and a girl who had a past relationship, and the guy is cherishing the memories while he can, knowing that he will grow to hate and resent her. That happened to me and my ex-girlfriend, so when she cut the relationship short, I realized that there was a lot more to the song than I understood. I couldn't stop listening to it for a week.
Adrian from Houston, Txman this song never gets old.it simply rocks.every time u hear it u cant help but 2 sing and dance along 2 it crazy.YELLOWCARD ROCKS!!!
Brodie from Melbourne - Victoria, Australiawhat is waiting game about???? please tell me!!!!!
Chris from Kings Park, NyThats not what the song is about. It's not about a girl or a relationship, but more about a certain time and feeling. that is what one of the band members said.
Melissa from Toledo, OhThis is a really good song. Yellowcard is a good band.
Cadon from San Fransico, Cathis songs pretty self explanitory
Stacey from Someplace, Australiai reckon that if artists can change their style to meet what the people want they are going to have the ability to try alot of different sounds and possibly be able to express many different sides of themselves so its really cool that yellowcard do that
Daniel from Morganville, Njthis song is awsome. i luv it.
Alex from Kinnelon, Njoh i dont know jack about music huh? have you ever heard of nirvana? tool? rage against the machine? they knew what they wanted and they didnt follow the scene. if heavy metal was what was popular, yellowcard would be out there with their double bass pedals and heavy guitar riffs. i have more musical knowledge and talent in my little finger than you do in your whole body jessi.
Jessi from Crownpoint, NmI think i like this song because it has catchy lyrics. ALex from NJ u probably dont know jack if ur talkin about other bands like that what do u listen to? Ballet?
Sharon from Aucklandthis song is very very good and yellowcard rock!!!
Alex from Gaithersburg, MdI LOVE THIS SONG A IS THE GRADE FOR THIS SONG
Cassie from Erie, PaThis song is awesome. I'm not one for mainstream very much, but Yellowcard rocks.
Chrissy from ManchesterFab song!
Brittany from Richmond, KyThis song was good the first few times I heard it, now im over it. But the main singer is pretty hot!
ABBA's Bjorn Ulvaeus and Benny Andersson conceived "Dancing Queen" as a dance song with the working title "Boogaloo," drawing inspiration from the 1974 George McCrae disco hit "Rock Your Baby." Their manager Stig Anderson came up with the title "Dancing Queen."
