I’ll take the alleyway today
No need for streets they just compete with other people
Walking side by side on sidewalks
With their clocks all ticking simultaneously

That’s where ill be
Stick to the alleyway with me

There is a way
Another way to go and I’ll take it
A secret way
Some people know about but know one ever sees

You will find it if your heart is open and I’m hoping it will lead you straight to me

Fast or slow
Take the shortcuts inside roads
Pay no mind to the signs or highway lines
Will get there our way

I’ll take the train tracks their
The ones that run behind the houses down on Pine Street
Traveling side by side like lovers
Never crossing one another
So to speak

And ill walk these tracks forever even if the weather doesn't change in weeks

And though we more than deserved it long ago it doesn't hurt to notice I'm free

(Fast or slow
Take the shortcuts inside roads
Pay no mind to the signs or highway lines
Will get there our way)

    General CommentFirst of all, these lyrics are wrong. There are grammar mistakes like "know" instead of "no" and "will" instead of "we'll". Also, I don't think it's "inside roads" it's "and side roads". And it's not "I'll take the train tracks their" (even if those were the lyrics it would be using the wrong there/their/they're) it's "I'll take the train tracks today" like the very first line. Plus, there are many minor things that cause some lines to be one more or one less syllable. Which screws everything up if you're trying to sing it along haha.

    Besides that, I think this song is about taking chances. Maybe chances with love, with life. To me it's about moving forward at your own pace with someone you trust. Maybe about finally finding peace, finding your own way. I don't know... I'm just brainstorming.

    General CommentI agree with onomatopoeia, I think this song may be about taking chances or going against the grain. Instead of "competing with other people", just going at your own pace on your own way. Your own path.
