Color me with interest, baby
I stand here ill defined
If you display your insides, maybe
I will show you mine

I wouldn't mind
You're so refined

Make obvious your tactics, dearest
And how they will unfurl
And I'll lay out my plans now, baby
Just you say the word

It's so absurd
I eat my words

Oh, I know ….

In one of life's ironic moments
I try to make you mine
It kind of hurts, that makes it worse
Tell me what is on your mind

You're throwing signs
I can't unwind

Oh, I know ….

Red alert!

Avenue Victor Hugo Portland, Oregon

Avenue Victor Hugo has been tearing up Portland, OR since they formed in 2011. A power trio, they mix up rock, pop, metal, and 70's psych into one big ball of sound. AVH is well worth the investigation.
