We The Kings – Skyway Avenue lyrics
She said let's change our luck
This night is all we've got
Drive fast until we crash
This dead end life
Sweet dreams that won't come true
I'd leave it all for you
Brick walls are closing in
Let's make a run tonight

Blinded by the lights
Hold you through forever
Won't let you go

'Cause if you jump
I will jump too
We will fall together
From the building's ledge
Never looking back at what we've done
We'll say it was love
'Cause I would die for you
On skyway avenue

She said don't change your mind
Let's leave this town behind
We'll race right off the cliff
They will remember this
It all got so mundane
With you I'm back again
Just take me by the hand
We're close to the edge

Blinded by the lights
Hold you through forever
Won't let you go

'Cause if you jump
I will jump too
We will fall together
From the building's ledge
Never looking back at what we've done
We'll say it was love
'Cause I would die for you
On skyway avenue

Where are your guts to fly?
Soaring through, through the night
And if you take that last step
I'll follow you
Leave the edge and fly
We're finally alive

'Cause if you jump
I will jump too
We will fall together
From the building's ledge
Never looking back at what we've done
We'll say it was love
'Cause I would die for you
On skyway avenue
So what's left to prove
We have made it through

    I don't no what this song means. Its very deep like most of their other songs. If you jump, I will jump too. We will fall together. That's a pretty deep line. The music video doesn't really match the song in my opinion. It seems like they're spending their last moments together before something happens. They're deeply in love. Great meaningful song. There should be more songs like this these days, instead of s*s and s*.

    A relationship that's not quite love, not just yet- this is one telling the other that they want it to be love, 'never looking back' is the declaration of a new stage in the relationship 'so whats left to prove, we have made it through' this is him saying to her, we've made it passed wondering whether this will work/ now we can- and not worry about it just being a fling :) that's just what I think anyways!

    This song is talking about their love being so alive that the rest of life seems dead. And that if she wanted to do something crazy he'd be right there with her because he's so in love that nothing seams as real as the way he feels about her. And that in the future that if they look back and remembver the crazy things they did they'll remember that the did it because of their love for each other.

    I don't think that it's simply "i'll die for you". They don't want to die together, they want to live together. He says "we'll jump and say it was love", so they didn't die even after jumping. They want to be together even if the world doesn't agree, they want to get away from the life they know, to be together somewhere else. Only after they have jumped off the edge they are "finally alive".

    This song is about a guy being in love with a girl saying he wants to be committed to her and only her, she isn't so sure if she is in a "relationshippy" place. She needs to take the relationship to the next level and be committed, and jumping off the building is a metaphor for this. The ending of this song "so what's left to prove, we have made it through"
    Is saying "we made it this far in the relationship why not be committed? " great lyric writing on travis's part.

    Honestly, I don't think it literally means that the lovers are going to commit suicide together. . He is saying that he would do anything for her. . Even if it's crazy or risky, they'll stay together. And he is willing to do whatever it takes so that they can be together. By the lyrics, there's obviously some kind of struggle in their relationship, sounds most like they can't be together the way things are, so he'll leave absolutely everything to be with her. . Not die, literally, but do anything, give it all up. . That's what true love is like. . You would do anything for the one you love. But I agree, that is you truly love someone, you wouldn't die for them, you'd save them, or die with them. To leave your love behind, that is just too cruel an existence.

    I think that this song is about how the guy wants to live everyday to the fullest with the girl bcos nobody ever knows when it will end. Hed go through the thick and the thin as long as he with her. And even though they have alot of memories, they wont look back on them and instead make more.
    And I think that a few of you are looking at the lyrics too literal.

    To me the meaning of this song is a guy loves a girl so much that if she ever killed herself or died that he couldn't live without her because he loves her so much and always will.
    This song reminds me of my best friend Keven! I listen to it whenever I'm feeling down or miss him I listen to it and it makes me feel a bit better. I've had a rough go at things right now and I'm glad I have him he's the best friend anyone could ever ask for.
    Kevie, if your reading this, I love you so much.

    My interpretation of this song is that two people struggling to overcome the torment life is putting them through make a decision. They are in love and their attachment brings them to a conclusion of suicide. Driving into a crash, leaping from a deadly cliff, or descent off a building; any form of death she chooses, he wil be sure to follow into the next life, they wil go together. They will use a skyway, or flight to get through to ther death, knowing that people will remember their love, death, & hurt.
