definitely should have made it on the album.

on president street, you'll find the sisters.
praying over my city's heart.
while you you never knew, turns to it's disciple.
who feels the presure heat coming on hot.

and if all was well and your heart could find the words.
would we be for better baby, would we be for worse.
and if there was a way to nevigate your seas
if tonight my true love did belong to me

and juliet she's just smoking by the window
saying stone cold i believe in you romeo
and the raindrops in the cars keep on falling from off the bars
blocking out a good song playing on the radio

and if all was well and your heart could find the words
would we be for better baby would we be for worse
and if there was a way to nevigate your seas
if tonight my true love did belong to me

well i've been down i've been out
had my head and my heart kicked around

well i've been down i've been out
had my head and my heart kicked around

but in the quiet of the night romeo's mind is burning
from putting all of his burn into them sermons

and if all was well and your heart could find the words
would we be for better baby would we be for worse
and if there was a way to nevigate your seas
if tonight my true love

i've been down i've been out
had my head and my heart kicked around
do you miss her right now
did belong to me

I always thought it was 'you you never knew' but I suppose in the context 'Union Avenue' fits a lot better. Good shout.

Maybe a stupid question, but what exactly does navigate your seas means here?

I suppose it's just finding your way around. The sea and sailing is often used to describe love (with waves crashing and storm and shit) so in this case it's a beautiful way of saying 'if only I were able to to find my way with/to you' or 'if only I knew how to love you/be with you/please you/be together/understand you'. Something along those lines I guess.

is 'Union Avenue' some kind of historical place in NYC? or is it just an avenue like any other?

on president street, you'll find the sisters.
praying over my city's heart.
while union avenue, turns to it's disciple.
who feels the presure heat coming on hot.
-to me this verse is just showing brian's religious side

and if all was well and your heart could find the words.
-there is a problem in the relationship, but the girl isn't quite sure how to tell the guy waht she is feeling
would we be for better baby, would we be for worse.
-is there a chance that they could get married?
and if there was a way to nevigate your seas
-the girl is just too confusing for the man and he just wants some way to see exaclty what she is thinking
if tonight my true love did belong to me
-self-explanitory...and heartbreaking

and juliet she's smoking by the window
-Juliet is the given love story that ends tragically, and the fact that she is smoking just makes her seem more like the perfect girl for Brian and maybe showing that she has a rough side
saying stone cold i believe in you romeo
-she believes in true love, but doesn't think that she is in it.
and the raindrops on the cars keep on falling from off the bars
blocking out a good song playing on the radio
-he's just listening to a song a the radio, to try to mend his broken heart, but he can't even listen to it

and if all was well and your heart could find the words
would we be for better baby would we be for worse
and if there was a way to nevigate your seas
if tonight my true love did belong to me

well i've been down i've been out
had my head and my heart kicked around
-obviously, he's been heartbroken and gone through mind games with other girls before this one, too.
well i've been down i've been out
had my head and my heart kicked around

but in the quiet of the night romeo's mind is burning
from putting all of his burn into them sermons
-"romeo" is going crazy at night and losing sleep because he is pouring his heart out to his girl with all these words, but she just doesn't feel the same feelings that he feels for her

and if all was well and your heart could find the words
would we be for better baby would we be for worse
and if there was a way to nevigate your seas
if tonight my true love

i've been down i've been out
had my head and my heart kicked around
do you miss her right now
did belong to me

I don't know all of this for sure, but it's just how I like to look at the song everytime I hear it.

That makes a lot of sense. I always thought it never quite sounded like did or dead.

Its "dared belong to me".
Im from germany and i thought that my english is good, not perfect but good.
So what does it mean? The "Navigate your seas" part I understand... But i cant find a way to match the lines? Is it to take a risk?

It's kind of just a more poetic way of saying "if my love decided to be with me tonight"
Such a good line!
