"A one-way street" in lyrics

Robbie Williams - Angels

When I'm feeling weak
And my pain walks down a one way street
And I look above and I know

Bushido - Ching Ching

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

Taylor Swift - Need You Now

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

Def Leppard - Hysteria

Into you, yeah
You could hide
it's just a one way street
Oh, I believe I'm in you, yeah

Aerosmith - Hole in my soul

I'm down a one way street
With a one night stand
With a one track mind
Out in no man's land

THEORY - Not Meant To Be

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

Ha*Ash - Wherever you are

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

Yelle - Girls

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.

Savage Garden - Crash and Burn

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

A Life Divided - Heart On Fire

For some reasons it's not how it's supposed to be
Feels like searching for the way in a one way street
God given but a devils mistake

Herbert Grönemeyer - Greenland

Jubilee without perjudice
In the eyes were flashes
Dreams stuck in a one-way-street
Nothing worked at all

Bobby Blue Bland - Dreamer

Dream on, dream on,
surely someone, someone will understand me.
Down the wrong way on a one way street,
You'd think by now I would have learned.

David Cook - Time marches on

You were six feet in
On a one way street
When you gave into love

Poets of the Fall - Overboard

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.

Lucie Silvas - Breathe In

I feel like I'm dragging you down a one way street
I don't know which ways up
All I ask of you is to stay on your feet
That should be enough

Luhan - On fire

Smile face and V gesture posing for the champion photos
Like a fat man, can't bend
Can't retreat, just like I am driving on a one-way street
Making the entire universe be our sandbag

The Growlers - People Don't Change Blues

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

Daughtry - Outta My Head

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

David Archuleta - Angels 1

When I'm feeling weak
And my pain walks down a one way street
I look above

Thomas Anders - I'll Love You Forever

Now I know what my heart beats for

This can't be just a one-way street
Without your love, I'm incomplete
