Avenue A

Avenue A
Music: Grace McDunnough
Lyrics: Salome Strangelove & Grace McDunnough

Just another street stray
Wailin’ at the blood red moon
Shakin’ up the tenements
With a blue note, white lies, and a signature tune
Oh, I know it ain’t the first time
You been carrying on like that
And I know it ain’t the last time
You’re gonna lay this heart out flat

When you go prowlin’
Oh, you’re walkin’ all over town
You go prowlin’
Why you gotta play my heart like that
There is no how
There is no chance
There is no way
And I’ve got nothing left to say
I caught you prowlin’
Down on Avenue A
Prowlin’

Curiosity is overrated
When you’ve found what keeps you sated
Truth and consequences
You’ve got nine lives left to figure out this game
You know it ain’t the first time
My love’s been made the fool
I know it ain’t the last time
But that don’t make it any less cruel

I caught you prowlin’

You know there’s a lot of midnight
For a girl like me to get lost in
I’ve tasted claws and calico
I’ve been around enough to know
I shouldn’t be surprised
No, the cream don’t always rise
When you go prowlin’
Oh, walkin’ walkin’ all over me
You go prowlin’
Why you gotta play my
Why you gotta play my
Why you gotta play around

I caught you prowlin’
Down on Avenue A
