Argyle Avenue

On Argyle Avenue
When we were young and love was new
On Argyle Avenue
Life was sweet for me and you too

A white picket fence and an unlocked door
Cigarette burns on the kitchen floor
A orb in the front yard, second hand
An elephant foot umbrella stand

It was like a dream come true

On Argyle Avenue
The summer of 2002
On Argyle Avenue
Life was sweet for me and you too

A white picket fence and an unlocked door
Sea shells stolen from a souvenir store
Toothpicks sticking out of ice cube trays
Purple Rain and Purple Haze

It was like a dream come true
On Argyle Avenue
On Argyle Avenue

A white picket fence and an unlocked door
Flashlights flicker all along the shore
A heart shaped crack in the bedroom wall
I'd wait for your footsteps down the hall

'Cause every night that summer you came to me
And nothing's ever been the same for me
It was like a dream come true
On Argyle Avenue
