Ambassador 04:41
The sun rises on Ambassador and kisses all the Pointes Wyandotte is not too far behind It travels up the Rouge just like it did in '67 like nothing happened and it doesn't mind It dances right down Woodward and Grand River for a while playful in its daily ascent it skips over the Southfield, dodges cars on Telegraph and winks at all the gridwork cement, and - When it touches our treetops in autumn heaven's glory seems ablaze all around if you're seeking a more pleasant peninsula Well, I say there isn't one to be found. When the April showers patter and the grey begins to scatter and the tulips push their way through Holland's soil Once again we feel the reason, the logic of the season the purpose giving meaning to our toil And when the lakes begin to glisten you just have to stop & listen to the herons and the cranes alive in song seems like every living creature calls to us just like a preacher revealing what the sun knew all along, that - When it touches our treetops in autumn heaven's glory seems ablaze all around if you're seeking a more pleasant peninsula Well, I say there isn't one to be found. It isn't the technology... It isn't the machinery... It's more than the ecology... and more than just the scenery... The sun will show you... The sun will show you... When it touches our treetops in autumn heaven's glory seems ablaze all around if you're seeking a more pleasant peninsula Well, I say there isn't one to be found. If you're seeking a more pleasant peninsula... look around.

Superior 04:05
He sails down from Superior, He glides from Grand Marais He plops into our wishing well and schools us how to play He brings to mind Saint Nicholas, projects Jethro Bodean Two steps from Kevin Bacon, yeah - unassuming and mean yeah I mean mean, I mean MEAN, `cause - When he plays I hear the Au Sable rushing on When he plays I see the falls of Tahquamenon When he plays I hear the robin begin to sing When he plays I feel the teeth of the wolverine... He slips into our domicile, sips our Caribou brews A quick flip through his repertoire then with six strings he subdues he subdues... he subdues… When he plays I hear the Au Sable rushing on When he plays I see the falls of Tahquamenon When he plays I hear the robin begin to sing When he plays I feel the teeth of the wolverine... Saline winters, Ypsi flocks, 75 his driveway Berkley Sundays, Plymouth rocks, Romulus his runway Jazz and country, ballads and blues, you know you just can't lose 'cause when the man dares to choose, beware: he WILL cut loose... When he plays I hear the Au Sable rushing on When he plays I see the falls of Tahquamenon When he plays I hear the robin begin to sing When he plays I feel the teeth of the wolverine... Oh he's so superior... Down from Lake Superior... Makes us feel inferior... Yeah, yeah - Superior...

Jimmy 04:22
Jimmy was a boy she knew in high school she liked him but it wasn't meant to be She collided with an artist and gave him everything at seventeen Carson whirled her away to Traverse City she raided daddy's wallet for the rent but by the end of August the money and the love had all been spent and oh, oh the long fading of her faith and oh, oh the innocence of yesterday Rebecca settled somewhere south of Interlochen Where the locals at the diner rarely tipped she dreamed of Winnebagos and giving the few souls she knew the slip Maybe head to northern Minnesota drive around a couple thousand lakes and wish away the memories, drown `em right along with her mistakes and oh, oh the long fading of her faith and oh, oh the innocence of yesterday Then she thought of Jimmy - wondered `bout his life... Was he still blonde and skinny? did he have a wife? And when he said he loved her all those years ago did he really mean it? How could he know? How could he know? Meanwhile at the diner things were steady food was free and she could pay the rent but like her breakfast regulars it seemed that life just came each day... and went.

November Sky 03:37
I sense the chill of autumn, see the harvest moon glaring in the sky, And I fear for the future, if we'll even have one, you and I Because the leaves are cracklin' underfoot soon buried alive under the snow November winds are whistling "isn’t that the way that all things go..." I feel the breath of angels as they whisper everything will be alright Still the days keep growing darker as if there could be a never-ending night But in my heart a fire burns fueled by hope refusing to fade And just as sure as midnight creeps I know that there is bound to come a day So if my faith is all I own coupled with a kind of love that cannot die I suppose that hope will be enough to get me thru this cold November sky I think that hope will be enough... I hope that hope will be enough... I believe that hope will be enough to get me through this cold November sky.
