On the Avenue

This song is by Aztec Camera and appears on the album Frestonia (1995).

This song has been covered by Jochen Distelmeyer under the title "On the Avenue".
Everybody's walking through the city all alone
But no one talks about it
I am just a simple, unassuming kind of man
So neither do I
But I walk like the rest and try to do my best
Till I'm beaten, till I'm blue
And it shines like the sun inside of everyone
Like the neon that I see in the rain
On the avenue

Everybody's dreaming 'bout a city in the sky
Where we can live without love
I am just a simple, unassuming kind of guy
So so do I

But to feed you from a shell, fill you up and wish you well
That's my reason, it's what I do
And it shines in the guise of Egyptian sparkling eyes
In the basement of a hotel
On the avenue

And if the hotel burns down
We'd probably drown 'neath the firemen's hoses
Holy Moses!
I would still believe that paradise
Was there with you
Never blue
Stuck like glue
On the avenue
