Music and Lyrics by Alfred Sire


Franklin Avenue

I saw her on the corner with another guy
Standing in the darkness of the sunlight
Tried to convince myself it wasn’t true
When I took a wrong turn, down Franklin Avenue

My blood ran cold, she never said goodbye
Laughing out loud as she passed me by
She had a wicked side I never knew
Until I walked down the dark side of Franklin Avenue

It runs through the heart of town
The road that leads me down
To the depths of my soul
And the lonely place where I lost you, on Franklin Avenue

Looking back, I should have known
When I was with her, why I felt alone
She always had a different point of view
And she took it to the street, down on Franklin Avenue

Now there’s not much left of my self esteem
Because she was just downright mean
Leading me on and treating me like a fool
She left me standing there, on Franklin Avenue

It cuts through the heart of town
And always leads me down
To the bottom of my soul
And the end of the road without you
Now there’s no turning back to
Franklin Avenue
