"Skyway Avenue" as written by David Katz, Sam Hollander and Travis Clarke....
She said let's change our luck
This night is all we've got
Drive fast until we crash
This dead end life
Sweet dreams that won't come true
I'd leave it all for you
Brick walls keep closing in
Let's make a run tonight

Blinded by the lights
Hold you through forever
Never let you go

'Cause if you jump I will jump too
We will fall together
From the building's ledge
Never looking back at what we've done
We'll say it was love
'Cause I would die for you
On Skyway Avenue

She said don't change your mind
Let's leave this town behind
We'll race right off the cliff
They will remember this
It all got so mundane
With you I'm back again
Just take me by the hand
We're close to the edge

Blinded by the lights
Hold you through forever
Never let you go

''Cause if you jump I will jump too
We will fall together
From the building's ledge
Never looking back at what we've done
We'll say it was love'
Cause I would die for you
On Skyway Avenue

Where are your guts to fly
Soaring through, through the night
And if you take that last step
I'll follow you
Leave the edge and fly
We're finally alive

'Cause if you jump I will jump too
We will fall together
From the building's ledge
Never looking back at what we've done
We'll say it was love
'Cause I would die for you
On Skyway Avenue
So what's left to prove
We have made it through

    General CommentTwo lovers who are so caught up in love, that the rest of life is completely disregarded as long as they have each other. They would die together, just because, together they feel they are truly alive.

    General CommentThis is a song about two people that are very much in love with eachother. whatever happens to the one, happens to the other as well. hence "cause if you jump, i will jump too." they dont want to live without eachother.

    General Commenti believe this song is similar to aidens ong goodbye, we're falling fast. This couple seem incredibly in love and would do anything for each other. With the lyrics "they will remeber this." It is almost as though their relationship is frowned upon by other people. But neway i enjoy listening to this song as it has meaningful lyrics. Keep up the good work

    General Commenti think this song is making reference to a former band member who committed suicide back when they were "broken image"

    General Commentalthough the song may be making a refrence to a former band member, I think cucci got the alternate interpretation. and quietthings just added. No one else favours the relationship, but they would leave it all just to be happy toghether.

    General CommentPerhaps it should be noted that the Sunshine Skyway Bridge is a huge bridge that connects Manatee and Pinellas counties and has so many suicide jumps that there are multiple solar-powered telephones at the top that directly connect to a crisis center. They also have cameras installed that send a live feed to Crisis Centers of Tampa Bay.

    Doesn't clear up anything [the song's pretty straightforward], but it's interesting information for anyone not actually from the area.
