Story

What I like about this song is that I can play around with my voice -- making it quavery, hoarse, etc. as different avenues are tried.

WHAT’S THE RIGHT AVENUE? Michael Dyer © 2006 How can I get through to you? What’s the right avenue? You’ve got me by the soul. I’m just no longer whole. Like a shattered glass bowl, and it’s taking its toll. How can I get through to you? What’s the right avenue? I could be effervescent and, oh, so pleasant, Or I could be stressed and restless and, oh, so hell-bent. I could be rough and gruff; hoarse and gritty, just like the city. Or I could be soft and lofty and beg for your pity. But I don’t wanna have to change my goals. Don’t wanna have to play new roles. Don’t wanna have to patch my gaping holes. Oh, too soon, that would grow so old. How can I get through to you? What’s the right avenue? I could be quaver-y and jittery, just like jello. Or I could be calm and, oh, so very mellow. I could be swooping down from high above, Or crawling up from far below. Oh, I just don’t know. How can I get through to you? What’s the right avenue? You’ve got me by the soul. I’m just no longer whole. Like a shattered glass bowl, and it’s taking its toll. How can I get through to you? What’s the right avenue? Oh, what’s the right avenue? The right avenue.
