Aimee Mann - Columbus Avenue Lyrics




Storefront, streetcars rattle
One more losing battle
What is Columbus Avenue to you now?

Last call tattoo parlor
Deathbed sword swallower
What is Columbus Avenue to you now?

The place where you failed
To make your story go over
The place where you bailed
And let the bottom drag you under
Drag you under

Cheap shot paranoia
Exiled from Victoria
What is Columbus Avenue to you now?

The place where you failed
To make your story go over
The place where you bailed
And let the bottom drag you under
Drag you under

Where you moved with a ghastly precision
To the echoes of bones in the air
Finding hope in an X-ray division
Of a world that's not there

Cafe sinners bother you
Empty pockets follow you
What is Columbus Avenue to you now?

The place where you failed
To make your story go over
The place where you bailed
And let the bottom drag you under
Drag you under

What is Columbus Avenue to you now?

    finding hope in an x-ray divisision of a world that's not there........that's what i call songwriting!

  7. Elephants Aplenty

    sshe really slows it down on this album, brings in greater scope of musicians, just a great album, sweeping, ...violins horns...first song i heard was medicine wheel with horns...and aimee..had to buy it.......medicine wasnt favorite song at first but eventually

  8. dannlynch

    gets more beautiful ever time I listen to it. (and me and aimee need to record together 'cause my voice is off the hook).

  9. dannlynch

    I'm pretty sure noone can even touch her songwriting. genius.
