"The Avenue" as written by Kevin Deron Brereton, Ray Garraway, Russell Klyne and Chris Gestrin....
And I don't, need you, to say
you don't love me if you don't
Cause I love, you anyway

Yeah, down the Avenue,
Yeah, walking down the Avenue

I see you walking down the Avenue,
I see you walking every day.
I even notice when your jeans are new,
looks like there's nothing left to say.

How did I become such a selfish man?
Chasing my memories down the block.
It's cause I'm hanging on the Avenue,
That's why my girlfriend is hip-hop.

So I don't, need you, to say
you don't love me if you don't
Cause I love, you anyway ohhh

I see you walking down the street sometime,
I see you walking now and then,
I see you on the tv-show sometime,
Are you for real or just pretend?

And when the night shine falls,
And the city lights shine,
I'm right by your side.
It's cause I'm hanging on the Avenue
That's why I got nothing to hide

Cause I don't need you to say
you don't love me if you don't
Cause I love you anyway ohhh

I'm just a man with some diamonds in my pocket,
________________________________________________,
I'm just a man, with some diamonds in my pocket,
________________________________________________,
Downtown, it can be you and me,
Downtown, downtown and we can ride the TTC (like we used to)
Downtown, this can be you and me,
Downtown, downtown and we can ride the TTC.

So I don't, need you, to say
you don't love me, if you don't
Cause I love you anyway ohhh

No I don't, need you, to say
[Overlap lyrics, cannot decipher]

.............................Sometimes.

Exitlude (last 3:14 minutes of the song)
Now, I'm just chillin' in the sand in a Neil Young style,
I'll catch you in a minute, I'd rather chase for a while
I love the east coast, which is west coast
Touch down, _________________, butter on toast.

I didn't use to know the art of saying nothing,
Is harder then saying something ____________,
cause nothing is constantly rushing through
the front door which I lost my keys last week
I can't speak, but you know what I'm saying cause

I ___________________________________________,
so don't give me the run around time,
it's chasing us down.
I got to keep it moving...

[No idea what he says for a few minutes after]

You led me to a parking lot, and lost the car that
you came with and drove me from the backseat
I like the wind in my face, top-down, music
and rhyming in the backseat.

You drove me to a parking lot, and lost the car that
you came with and drove me from the backseat
I like the wind in my face, top-down, music
and riding in the backseat.


.................

Josh, Joshua .... Andrew.

    (From above)

    I'm just a man with some diamonds in my pocket,
    I like you, mam, but Im here to plan a racket

    *overlapping lyrics*



    deliver unconditional sometimes

    *Exltude - *

    Another Episode:
    Now, I'm just chillin in the sand in a Neil Young style,
    I'll catch you in a minute, I'd rather chill a while
    I left the East Coast, went to the West Coast,
    Touch down, ___(seen it through?)____, butter on toast.

    I didn't used to know
    the art of saying nothin'
    It's harder than saying something
    with something constantly rushing through
    the front door of which I lost my key last week
    I can't speak but you know what I'm saying cause

    I'm not on the planet for long
    so don't give me the run around time,
    It's chasing us down.
    I got to keep it movin'

    Super fly trip
    watch that girl kiss
    favorite rapper
    fat lip
    black broad tip

    We skipped downtown rollin' on a skate
    She can pay but she can't trade what she can't say now
    She may not hate them
    neither do we hate them
    Givin' us the run around

    I went to ol' man river
    He said "get it, don't stop,
    you can be popular, just don't try to go pop."

    I'm not on the planet for long,
    so don't give me the run around time,
    It's chasing us down.
    I got to keep it movin'

    You led me to a parking lot, and lost the car that
    you came with and drove me from the backseat
    I like the wind in my face, top-down, music
    and rhyming in the backseat.

    You drove me to a parking lot, and lost the car that
    you came with and drove me from the backseat
    I like the wind in my face, top-down, music
    and riding in the backseat.

    Yeah,
    Backseat of the taxi,
    we saw the episode

    Josh, Joshua .... Andrew
    Thats my homies

    I left the East Coast, went to the West Coast,
    Touch down, ___(seen the proof?)____, butter on toast.

    One of his greats
