"Honeymoon Avenue" as written by Thomas Brown, Roahn Hylton, Maurice Wade, Antonio Dixon, Travis Sayles, Denis Jenkins and Victoria Mccants....
I looked in my rear view mirror and
It seemed to make a lot more sense
Than what I see ahead of us,
Ahead of us, yeah.
Uh I'm ready to make that turn
Before we both crash and burn
'Cause that could be the death of us,
The death of us,

Baby you know how to drive in rain
And You decided not to make a change
Stuck in the same old lane
Going the wrong way home

I feel like my heart is stuck in bumper to bumper
Traffic, I'm under pressure 'cause I can't have you
The way that I want
Let's just go back to the way it was

When we were on Honeymoon Avenue
Honeymoon Avenue
Baby, coastin' like crazy
Can we get back to the way it was

Hey, What happened to the butterflies
Guess they didn't count at that stop sign
And my heart is at a yellow light, a yellow light
Hey, right when I think that we found it
Well that's when we start turnin' around
You're saying baby don't worry
But we're still going the wrong way baby

Baby you know how to drive in rain
And you decided not to make a change
Stuck in the same old lane
Going the wrong way home

I feel like my heart is stuck in bumper to bumper
Traffic, I'm under pressure 'cause I can't have you
The way that I want
Let's just go back to the way it was

When we were on Honeymoon Avenue
Honeymoon Avenue
Baby, coastin' like crazy
Can we get back to the way it was

They say only fools fall in love
Well they must've been talking about us
And sometimes I feel like, I've been here before
Ah
I could be wrong, but I know I'm right
We gon' be lost if we continue to fight
Honey I know
Yeah, we can find our way home

I feel like my heart is stuck in bumper to bumper
Traffic, I'm under pressure 'cause I can't have you
The way that I want
Let's just go back to the way it was

When we were on Honeymoon Avenue
Honeymoon Avenue
My baby, coastin' like crazy
Can we get back to the way it was

When we were on Honeymoon Avenue
Honeymoon Avenue
Baby, coastin' like crazy
Can we get back to the way it was

Baby you know how to drive in rain
And you decide not to make a change
Stuck in the same old lane
Going the wrong way home

I feel like my heart is stuck in
Traffic, I'm under
Pressure
Pressure
Let's just go back to the way it was

When we were on
Honeymoon Avenue
Honeymoon Avenue
Honeymoon Avenue
Honeymoon Avenue
Avenue

Let's just go back
Back back back

    My InterpretationI had a boyfriend for 7 months. We had fallen for each other really quickly... In the beginning of the relationship we thought we were invincible because we were so in love, and so attached to the relationship.

    "You know how to drive in rain
    You decide and that's okay
    Stuck in the same old lane
    Going the wrong way home"
    ..eventually we began to argue over little things and the spark was beginning to drift away, but he didn't think anything of it, but our relationship began heading to that wrong direction. Because of his ex girlfriend, he was used to the fighting and didn't think the "rain" or my sadness was too serious so he flew right by it.

    "I feel like my heart is stuck
    In bumper to bumper
    Traffic, I'm going to crash
    'Cause I can't have you the way that I want
    Let's just go back to the way it was"
    ..I felt like I was trapped in the relationship because I wanted to go back to how we were in the beginning: in love.

    "When we were on Honeymoon Avenue
    Honeymoon Avenue
    Baby, Constantly crazy
    Can we get back to the way it was"
    ..to me a "honeymoon" is sort of the beginning of something. A celebration where you can't have enough of each other, and just a bunch of emotions.

    "Hey, what happened to the butterflies
    Guess they were moving kinda fast, that time"
    Our relationship started off pretty fast, where we just wanted to I straight to being in love and now those feelings we had are drifting away.

    "And my heart is at a yellow light, a yellow light
    Hey, can we go back to where we found it
    But that's if we can turn it around
    You're saying baby don't worry
    But we're still going the wrong way baby"
    ..he didn't think much of it, or take it too seriously to a point where that empty feeling we both had wasn't going away.

    "Think I'm in love
    But we continue to fight
    Honey I know
    We can find our way home"
    ..I was "in love" with him and didn't want to break up and wanted to keep the relationship going and wanted to try and go back to all that love we had before.

    Love this song and ariana grande!

    Song FactThis song was written by Ariana when she was very young. This song was very important to her and was put as her first song on her first album for a reason. She also performed this many times before the album release and even before "The Way".

    General CommentEvery so often, this song will pop up while my music is shuffling and it's such a beautiful song and Ariana does a great job with it. And there was something about it that was giving me feels (lol), feels that I don't really get from modern songs. I looked it up and turns out this song was written (along with a bunch of other people), by Babyface. It all makes sense now. He's a genius and has written a great song for a talented singer.
