Lyrics Vera Blue – Mermaid Avenue

Nicotine breath
Smell of regret
through the front fence
And up the side steps
I wish that I knew back then
That we would become past tense
 
The sound of the trees
Bringing back dreams
Wrapped in white sheets
Planning our scenes
I wish that I knew back then
That this was all make believe
 
I thought I’d name my children after you
We’d live in a house on Mermaid Avenue
And we’d drink champagne and admire the view
The last thing I’d say before sleeping is
I love you
 
Feels like last week
Salt on our cheeks
Gentle we speak
Promise we keep
All of the lies we said
I’d say them all over again
 
I thought I’d name my children after you
We’d live in a house on Mermaid Avenue
And we’d drink champagne and admire the view
The last thing I’d say before sleeping is
I love you
 
Maybe it’s for the better
We only lived there in our dreams
That way we’d stay forever
Happy on our street x2
 
I thought I’d name my children after you
We’d live in a house on mermaid avenue
And we’d drink champagne and admire the view
The last thing I’d say before sleeping is
I love you
 
On Mermaid on Mermaid
Avenue Avenue
On Mermaid on Mermaid
Avenue Avenue
