Biography

AVENUE 52
Avenue 52 is not your stereotypical pop/rock band. They are an American pop/rock band based out of Los Angeles, California formed in 2009 by four young and talented musicians with a positive message to give to their fans.

Delivering the Avenue 52 sound and message are Sean Alexander (background vocals, lead guitarist), Mike “Michaelangelo” Snyder (lead vocals, bassist), Tyler Aguirre (lead vocals, rhythm guitarist), and Beau Evans (drums).

The conception of the band’s name “Avenue 52” derives from the street where the band members originally met and came together. It was the focal point from which their music was created and manifested into its current sound.

Their music is a blend of pop melodies and rock undertones. Their self-titled debut EP will be released on iTunes at the end of March 2010.

Following the release of the digital EP, Avenue 52 will be hitting the road in order to bring their sound to a widespread audience. They are currently rehearsing and preparing for their upcoming shows with an optimistic perspective.

Avenue 52 is not just a band and is not just a street, but a journey one must take on a road with endless possibilities.

Lyrics

Simple Girl

Written By: Michaelangelo, Sean Alexander

“Simple Girl”

(Michaelangelo, Sean Alexander)

Verse 1

I’m fed up with every girl looking the same

Hit the mall, to find out what’s the latest craze

Going out with all their caked on make-up

Why they all so vein?

Lucky me, my girl is different from the rest

She looks hot in her pink and purple sweats

This girl’s so beautiful to me

Pre Hook

Cos she’s not artificial, superficial and fake

Hook

She’s not your stereo

Typical

Hollywood glamour girl

Cos on the surface

I I think she’s perfect as a simple girl

I love this simple girl

She’s sporting flip flops

Tank top

She aint gotta do a lot

To look amazing

I’m going crazy for this simple girl

I love this simple girl

Verse 2

Don’t take much, for us to have a good time

We can walk, to rent a movie for the night

On the way, she’ll wanna stop for popcorn

And a bottle of Sprite

We’re both dorks, and we make each other laugh

Once we start, there’s no way to hold it back

This girl’s like the other half of me

Pre Hook

Cos we’re so

Compatable

And I’m feeling so complete

Hook

She’s not your stereo

Typical

Hollywood glamour girl

Cos on the surface

I I think she’s perfect as a simple girl

I love this simple girl

She’s sporting flip flops

Tank top

She aint gotta do a lot

To look amazing

I’m going crazy for this simple girl

I love this simple girl

Breakdown

Hook

She’s not your stereo

Typical

Hollywood glamour girl

Cos on the surface

I I think she’s perfect as a simple girl

I love this simple girl

She’s sporting flip flops

Tank top

She aint gotta do a lot

To look amazing

I’m going crazy for this simple girl

I love this simple girl

Outro

Oh whoa Oh

She’s my

She’s my simple girl

Oh whoa Oh

She’s my

She’s my simple girl

“Falling”

(Michaelangelo, Tyler Aguirre, Sean Alexander, Gabe Lopez)

Verse 1

Broken hearts

Never rest

Stuck in a memory

Memory of the past

So hard to let you go

Gone away

Way too fast

But I’m still here wide awake

In a somber trace

Sitting all alone (alone)

Pre Hook

Just me

Feeling incomplete

I’m trapped inside this dream

This endless dream

Hook

And now it feels like I’m falling

Without you there’s nothing

Nothing but air all around

And I’m not slowing down

On my own

And now It feels like I’m falling

Headfirst and hopeless

Why did you leave,

Leave me all alone?

Verse 2

Shaky hands

Never grasp

Onto reality

The truth’s a lonely path

On a long and winding road

Pre Hook

With just me

Feeling incomplete

I’m trapped inside this dream

This endless dream (Oh)

Hook

And now it feels like I’m falling

Without you there’s nothing

Nothing but air all around

And I’m not slowing down

On my own

And now It feels like I’m falling

Headfirst and hopeless

Why did you leave,

Leave me all alone?

Bridge

Gone with the tide

I’m left behind

In this empty point of view

Can’t rewind

We’re chasing time

Days seem longer without you

Cos now you’re gone

Everything is wrong

I don’t know what to do

But dry my eyes

In this last goodbye

Hook

It feels like I’m falling

Without you there’s nothing

Nothing but air all around

And I’m not slowing down

On my own

Now It feels like I’m falling

Headfirst and hopeless

Why did you leave

Leave me all alone

Outro

I wanna tell you I love you

I wanna tell you I need you, yeah

I wanna tell you I miss you, I miss you

I wanna tell you I love you (I’d give all I have to give)

I wanna tell you I need you, yeah (Just to see your face again)

I wanna tell you I miss you, I miss you (Never thought that this would end, but it did)

(And I miss you)

Over and Under

"Over and Under"

Verse 1

They said, I make you uphappy

And you'd be better without me

This he said she said

Has taken its toll

Sometimes, i took you for granted

I coulda been, so much more romatic

I guess guess I was

Such a fool

Pre Hook

Too late to say I'm sorry

Too late to make things right

Hook

Cos now its over and under

Guess she couldn't tell that I loved her

Said its over-rated

Understated

But how was I to know

I shoulda been open and honest

Shoulda said the words that she wanted

to hear

If only I told her

Then it wouldn't be over and under

Verse 2

I know, I shoulda been trusting

Shoulda been more understanding

And listen to what is on your mind

Cos you said, you needed attention

Then you left, and taught me a lesson

But I paid the price and did the time

Pre Hook

Is it too late to say I'm sorry

Too late to make things right




Hook

Cos now its over and under

Guess she couldn't tell that I loved her

Said its over-rated

Understated

But how was I to know

I shoulda been open and honest

Shoulda said the words that she wanted

to hear

If only I told her

Then it wouldn't be over and under

Bridge

And now I'm all alone

Can't face the fact that you're gone

Cos I was blind

I realize

That I was wrong

And now you need to know

I can't leave and let you go

Cos I'm nothing

nothing without you

Hook

Cos now its over and under

Guess she couldn't tell that I loved her

Said its over-rated

Understated

But how was I to know

I shoulda been open and honest

Shoulda said the words that she wanted

to hear

If only I told her

Then it wouldn't be over and under

Tried and True

Written By: Michaelangelo, Sean Alexander, Thomas Fiss

“Tried and True”

(Michaelangelo, Thomas Fiss, Sean Alexander)

Verse 1

Took the time

To get to know me

Showed you a side

Without a disguise

It’s like you knew me

You saw right thru me

Too late for second chances I’m

Tucked in with sweet romance and I

Want you to know

Hook

That every moment

Tells a story

Of 2 kids

Still falling in love

It always feels new

When I’m with you

And every second

We’re together

Paints a picture

Of a future with you

Cos our love is

Tried and True

Verse 2

Take it back now

You don’t wanna take a chance

You always fall back to me

This isn’t happening she said

This isn’t what you wanted and I

Get down on my knees

(she can never)

She can’t give me away

But she don’t want me to stay

This time cos I missed out but

I need you to know


Hook

That every moment

Tells a story

Of 2 kids

Still falling in love

It always feels new

When I’m with you

And every second

We’re together

Paints a picture

Of a future with you

Cos our love is

Tried and True

Bridge

We try and always seem to make it work

Giving up now, don’t you think that sounds absurd?

Don’t you tell me

Three words were never really good enough

Some times it hurts but baby this is love

Don’t you know?

Cos I know

Hook

That every moment

Tells a story

Of 2 kids

Still falling in love

It always feels new

When I’m with you

And every second

We’re together

Paints a picture

Of a future with you

Cos our love is

Tried and True
