Episode: Smooth Criminal
Skyway Avenue is a song originally by We The Kings. It was sung in the second episode to the first seasonSmooth Criminal, by Rex Espley-Wilkes.

When The Unitards - the glee club at Jackson High - is running low on members, auditions are held in which new members who want to be a part of the club audition, and, if good enough, are accepted into the club. Amanda Evans auditions for the club due to her large love for singing. When Laura Tomlinson, the school's "biggest bully" joins the club, Amanda gets frightened. She encourages her best friend Rex Espley-Wilkes to audition, so that the two could be in the club together, as she said she had heard him sing on his karaoke video game and he was quite good. However, Amanda can't encourage him to audition, until she bribed him to join, by promising to buy him a new video game he liked when it came out. Rex couldn't help but take the offer due to his love for gaming, and hence auditioned for The Unitards with Skyway Avenue, which Amanda helped him rehearse beforehand. Amanda secretly knew that by the time the game was released, he would have forgotten all about their deal. 


She said let's change our luck
This night is all we got
Drive fast until
We crash this dead-end life
Sweet dreams that won't come true
I'd leave it all for you
Brick walls are closing in
Let's make a run tonight

Blinded by the lights
Hold you through forever
Won't let you go
'Cause if you jump I will jump too
We will fall together from the buildings ledge
Never looking back at what
We've done
We'll say it was love
'Cause I would die for you on
Skyway Avenue

She said don't change your mind
Let's leave this town behind
We'll race right off the cliff
They will remember this
It all got so mundane
With you I'm back again
Just take me by the hand
We're close to the edge
Blinded by the lights
Hold you through forever
Won't let you go
'Cause if you jump I will jump too
We will fall together from the buildings ledge
Never looking back at what
We've done
We'll say it was love
Cause I would die for you on
Skyway Avenue

Where are your guts to fly?
Soaring through, through the night
And if you take that last step
I'll follow you
Leave the ledge and fly
We're finally alive

Cause if you jump, I will jump too
We will fall together from the buildings ledge
Never looking back at what we've done
We'll say it was love
Cause I would die for you on
Skyway Avenue
So what's left to prove?
We have made it through.
