Orange Avenue

One Album

Orange Avenue is a five-piece American Pop-rock band from the shores of Daytona Beach, FL. Like many before them, OA started out as a diverse group of local musicians; playing on the traditional rock formula, however, Orange Avenue set themselves apart sonically from their peers and soon became one of Florida’s largest concert draws.

Orange Avenue released their self-titled debut CD (affectionately dubbed the "Orange Album" by fans) in the middle of ’07. Selling over 11,000 copies without the help of major marketing and touring support, the “Orange Album” went on to garner airplay from local radio stations such as WJRR in Orlando, and WVYB in Daytona Beach, as well as attention from numerous central Florida publications. In the few short years since their first release, Orange Avenue have shared the stage with The All American Rejects, Rihanna, Smash Mouth, Hello Goodbye, Low vs. Diamond, Egypt Central, Pop Evil, We The Kings, Anberlin, Fuel, Seven Mary Three, and many other talented artists.

In 2009, the band followed up their freshman effort with the aptly titled EP, “Reset,” giving listeners a small taste of what was to come. From the synthesized grind of ‘Just Refrain,’ the unapologetic ‘This Time Baby,’ and the aggressive head-bobbing engine of ‘Nightwalk’, “Reset” is a more focused, distinct and biographical album. “We went in the studio this time with the mindset to write exciting songs people can sink their teeth into” says Derek Anderson, the group’s front man. “We kind of wanted to show all the different styles we were capable of on our first disc. On this disc we wanted to show what we do best” says guitarist, Chris Yetter. The track ‘Just Refrain’ was featured on the MLB Network, and ‘No Goodbyes’ received rave reviews when it started a consistent rotation on WVYB Daytona.

Numerous tracks from “Reset” were featured on MTV, Teen Nick, Fox Sports, and other nationally televisions broadcasts, allowing Orange Avenue to expand its fan-base exponentially, garnering even more followers on their social networks, and pushing sales of their albums and merchandise through the roof.

In 2010, Orange Avenue went on to become an MTV “Buzzworthy” band; the video for ‘Just Refrain’ was a Freshman Finalist on MTVu; and Ourstage.com named the band one of the Top 10 Rock Artists/Bands of the year…

Not one to rest on their laurels, and amidst a grueling schedule of show dates, Orange Avenue went back into the studio in 2011 to record their third release, the band’s pivotal Sophomore Album. And so with 2012 came “Small Victories”, a record that was being described as the band’s best work before it was even released. Titled for what the band considers a metaphor of its own musical journey, “Small Victories” makes no apologies in spanning the sonic spectrum. From ‘Wondergirl’s’ progressive and biting, never-let-you-go grip, to the melancholy, anti-love song that is “Take Your Love,” OA has laid it all on the table.

Lyrics:

Can you tell me what I believe? Can you tell me what's changed in me? Tell me something that I don't know, Well I know you're not going to. Can you tell me if I'm alive? Where's the warmth of your hand in mine? Always feel like I'm dead inside but you don't know/ As you fall you'll be going down and its tearing me all apart, With my skin and your nails and my blood is now on your hands/ Is there any air left to breathe? Or is it just intoxicating me? Am I no longer air controlled? But I don't really wanna be. I feel I can never get enough- the taste of your skin it makes me drunk. I could say I was slave to you but you set me free. As you fall you'll be going down and its tearing me all apart with my skin and your nails and my blood is now on your hands/ My blood is still on your hands everything's in your hands, you're clawing me, you're clawing me, you're clawing me, you're clawing me/ As you fall you'll be going down and its tearing me all apart with my skin and your nails and my blood is now on your hands

Lyrics:

When its cold outside just enough to numb your appetite and it chills you deep down to your bones, when you realize its you who's sleeping alone/ C'mon and whoa let it go, C'mon and whoa let it go/ When you're not that tired think of moments that you wish you could rewind, and there's no time left for who and we realize there's nothing else you can do/ C'mon and whoa let it go! C'mon and whoa let it go!/ Take a deep breath and just let it go, there are some things you don't wanna know/ Breathe, breathe, breathe, breathe/ When its cold outside, whoa let it go, c'mon and whoa let it go, won't you take a deep breath and just let it go? C'mon and whoa whoa let it go, just let it go.

Lyrics:

You try your best to hide away from the people who surround you just to tell you what you should do/ You know that they don't know the things and all the happenings we've been through, still they tell you what you should do/ We find hat its not right, still we're doing it, do do doing it all the time/ How much more can we take this pain and exact situation before we both decide to run?/ You complain and you say "please not today, please not today," as the people they come and go just to tell you what you should know/ We'll find that its not right still we're doing it, do do doing it all the time/ You and I on different sides still we're doing it do do doing it all tonight/ We find that its not right, still we're do do doing it all the time/ You and I are on different sides, still we're doing it, do do doing it all tonight, do do doing it all

Fortune Teller Small Victories

Lyrics:

I went to a fortune teller to find out what she'd say to me/ I had to find what's goin on with my life I cannot see/ Can you tell me fortune teller what's inside your glass crystal ball?/ Then she looked at me and her eyes turned cold/ Are you ready for the worst days of your life you've ever known?/ Are you ready for the ... and heartbreaks of your life now that you're by yourself all alone?/ Tell me tell me fortune teller with your cards all scattered I'll need more/ Clutched her chest as she fell down to the floor/ Are you ready for the worst days of your life you've ever known?/ Are you ready for the ... and heartbreaks of your life now that you're by yourself? Are you ready for the worst days of your life you've ever known?/ Are you ready for the ... and heartbreaks of your life now that you're by yourself? Are you ready for the worst days? No no no. I'm not ready. Are you ready for the worst days of your life you've ever known?/ Are you ready for the ... and heartbreaks of your life now that you're by yourself all alone?

Lyrics:

If its not what you wanted, well is it always happening this way? Blissful wants a token and oftentimes the words we shouldn't say. When you find they're gone cause they're wanting more surely you will see there is no other way out/ I swear its not fair would you do it? Don't need but you never seem to care. I'm here tonight just for your delight. Glory Us. You say its okay, its okay,You say its okay, its okay, Baby its okay, its okay/ Why are we always haunted by the ghosts and memories of past? They're always waiting outside the doors and windows of our mental house, and they search for us, Its structured decay to get inside and stay there in our mind oh!/ I swear its not fair would you do it? Don't mean but you never seem to care. I'm here tonight just for your delight, Glory Us, You say its okay, its okay,You say its okay, its okay, Baby its okay, its okay, I swear its not fair would you do it? Don't mean but you never seem to care. I'm here tonight just for your delight, Glory Us/ (instr)/ No yesterday- we threw it away, we still can't resist when I hear you say, I'm here tonight just for your delight, Glory Us, You say its okay, its okay,You say its okay, its okay, baby its okay, its okay

Lyrics:

You've gone out drinking with your friends tonight; you're not answering your phone, I don't know where you're at tonight while I'm sitting here alone, I'm going crazy, I'm going crazy, I'm banging my head against the wall, 123 maybe 45 drinks, I may be by to try to sweep you off your feet/ Don't don't don't don't say what you mean to say, say what you mean to say, just refrain, I know that she'll come around again, she'll come around again like she did before before before/ I guess I on't bother to call again since I must be on ignore, Did you do this on purpose or are you just on the floor? I'm thinking maybe, I'm thinking maybe I need to get the hell out of here, 123 .... that you were with me/ Don't don't don't don't say what you mean to say, say what you mean to say, just refrain, I know that she'll come around again, she'll come around again like she did before before before/ (instr) / Don't don't don't don't say what you mean to say, say what you mean to say, just refrain, I know that she'll come around again, she'll come around again like she did before before before

Lay Down Yourself Small Victories

Lyrics:

I'm standing still out in the pouring rain, I'm holding on and I can't feel no pain, I've been a fool for much lesser things, You fly me off on your angels wings/ Ooo Lay down yourself tonight can't you see that there's no reason that's left to fight/ Take a look here at this photograph, a closer look will reveal all that's left of everything that we used to know/ Now it seems so long ago/ And lay down yourself tonight, can't you see that there's no reason that's left to fight/ Ripping up on me was never right, ....., (2 times)/ Darling what's wrong your angel wings and lay down yourself tonight cause you see that there's no reason that's left to fight

You know its alright/ What a feeling of release, I can feel it from my head down to my feet, and the lights they shine over to the place where we will meet/ I know what I want and I know just how to get it, we know what we want and we know just how to get it/ I wanna take you on a nightwalk where we can be alone/ Such a feeling of relief when we see the headlights flash down and they lead/ And we both still shine over at the place where we will meet/ We know what we want and we know just how to get it yeah/ We know what we want and we know just how to get it yeah/ Don't you get it?/ Wanna take you on a nightwalk, wanna take you in the night/ You know its alright, alright/ I wanna take you on a nightwalk where we can be alone until the moonlight nightwalk here with me/ You know its alright here with me/ I wanna take you on a nightwalk in the dark/ You know its alright alright

You don't know the things that you do to me. You don't know the things that you are for me. There is something I have laid across my heart. It's something that we know we could not start. You're the only one that can fix the damage done. And I'm through with living without you, gonna set it right this time. Tonight, I'm not gonna say goodbye. Everytime I think, I have to think of you. And whenever I will breathe, I'll feel I breathe for two. There's so many things I want to do for you. There's so many things that I just want to do for you. You're the only one who can fix the damage done. And I'm through with living without you, gonna set it right this time. Tonight, I'm not gonna say goodbye. And I'm not gonna walk away from you; I'll just look into your eyes, say don't cry. I'm not ever gonna say goodbye. And I'm through with living without you, gonna set it right this time. Tonight, I'm not gonna say goodbye-aye-aye. And I'm through with living without you, gonna set it right this time (set it right this time). Tonight, I'm not gonna say goodbye (don't say, don't say goodbye). And I won't walk away from you (never walkin' away); I'll just look into your eyes (look into your eyes), say don't cry. I'm not ever gonna say goodbye-aye-aye (don't say, don't say, don't say). No goodbye-eye-eyes, no goodbye-eye-eyes, no goodbye-eye-eyes, no goodbye-eye-eyes.

Sometime I .... I dunno how to act/ It's acting like a fool from .... attack/ I'm paralyzed in your eyes I can't move, who says I'm crazy? We're both the same and nothing's changing, nothing's changing/ Here we go again, castings are breaking down, we know that there's no right way, for us to connect the sounds the right words to say/ You know that you're more than what you are, since you're a bright and shiny superstar, move in fact you don't know anything/ It's really amazing, the things that you're saying, its driving you crazy, delusional maybe/ Here we go again, castings are breaking down, we know that there's no right way for us to connect the sounds/ All that's made the right words to say and its never gonna end/ Here we go again/ It's never gonna end, castings are breaking down we know that there's no right way for us to connect the sounds/ All that's made the right words to say

When I'm here, can you feel me closing in? And there's no chance to begin to find a way out of here, ooh. Oh no girl, can you feel me close behind?

Hear your pulse and it covers up your pain, and this will not be in vain. I promise you this is true, ooh oh.

I'm staring at your poster. Hold me, embrace me closer. God, give me the strength to let me pray. I see you walking out in the corner. Staring at you, smaller and smaller. Oh God, what have you done, what have you done, what have you done to me? Wondergirl, you go fast through my little world, you move fast through me. Wondergirl, what have you done to me now? Why does everybody stare? Doesn't anybody care? God, give me the strength to let me pray. I see you walking around in the corner, staring at you smaller and smaller. Oh God, what have you done, what have you done, what have you done to me? Wondergirl, you go fast through my little world, you move fast through me. Wondergirl, what have you done to me now? Wondergirl, you go fast through my little world, you move fast through me. Wondergirl, what have you done, what have you done, what have you done to me now? What have you done to me, now? What have you done to me? (Wondergirl) What have you done? Yeah, Wondergirl, you go fast through my little world, you move fast through me. Wondergirl, what have you done to me, yeah?
