"A one-way street" in lyrics

I'm loving angels instead

When I'm feeling weak
And my pain walks down a one way street
And I look above and I know
I'll always be blessed with love

Robbie Williams - Angels

I make the prison-sound, I know the ropes
Sh*t on rapping, I have never been a rapper
Since my 7th year of age it was my aim: outlaw
No way out exists, it remains to be a one-way street
And I sink here, because I just sleep on quicksands
And this sh*t keeps me awake

I need you now
Words I heard you whisper to me
We were walking down a one-way street

You need me now

I'm down a one way street
With a one night stand
With a one track mind
Out in no man's land
The punishment sometimes
Don't seem to fit the crime

Out of me
Into you, yeah
You could hide
it's just a one way street
Oh, I believe I'm in you, yeah
Open wide, that's right

Def Leppard - Hysteria

It’s like one step forward and two steps back
No matter what I do you’re always mad
And I, I can’t change your mind
Now it’s like trying to turn around on a one way street
I can’t give you what you want and it’s killing me
And I, I finally see, baby, we’re not meant to be

THEORY - Not Meant To Be

That took so faraway our love
Mile by mile
Your trace is no more
The street I walk is a one way street
Now, more than ever, I know who I am
If there’s something left, it’s just between you and me

Ha*Ash - Wherever you are

And in my heart, and in my body,
All the world has agreed to tell me,
That I am, touched here - where
I will never have to travel on a one-way street.

When you feel all alone
And a loyal friend is hard to find
You're caught in a one way street
With the monsters in your head
When hopes and dreams are far away and

Dreams stuck in a one-way-street
Nothing worked at all

Down the wrong way on a one way street,

You were six feet in
On a one way street
When you gave into love
With my heart on your sleeve

David Cook - Time marches on

And then you smile though it aches, cos you don't believe in mistakes, just that we made a mess of things...

When the deal that you made with love is just a one way street, a one way street, you feel you'll go overboard, cos you're incomplete, incomplete.

You're not afraid to rely on any way you can try to learn to make some sense of things.

Poets of the Fall - Overboard

I feel like I'm dragging you down a one way street
I don't know which ways up

If we stand around it could pass us by
We could give up now and never even try

Ooh change people don’t change
People don’t change when you want them to.
Yeah I looked the wrong way
Crossing a one way street that day.

Ooh it’s like Alex said,

But it ain't for me
It's kinda hard when you lay your heart
On a one way street
I really thought by now
You woulda slipped my mind

Every night, in silence, we hid our pain

We turned the whole world

You got to get yourself back on your feet

Everyone in the stadium is doing bungee jumping
Smile face and V gesture posing for the champion photos

Can't retreat, just like I am driving on a one-way street
Making the entire universe be our sandbag
Removing the tracks and hitting the rhythm by rap

Stop trying to escape from the real world
And hanging by your string

All the other roads have disappeared
Either I have you in my life or no one

while he shamelessly drives in the wrong direction on a one way street.*
why is my heart so troubled
Looks like it will be a day that I am going to regret living.

Baby yeah..

Love breaks down a one way street
Baby Yeah…

Turn it on

Driving fast down a one way street
Lord of loving you dance so neat
Baby try not to hit the sky

And my pain walks down a one way street

If she can get away

Paint her name on a one-way street
Painted cheeks with angry heat
Wounded pride on painted eyes
