about

Probably my favorite song on this collection. I used to take road trips from Livonia to Ann Arbor with my buddy Ron Davis. We'd take M-14 out to some back road with no idea where we were and just drive and drive, the tires thwacking to that repetitive, easy beat you hear in this song. We'd inevitably wind up at a guitar store in Downtown Ann Arbor and daydream (too poor to buy anything in those days). Good times.

lyrics

M-mm fourteen miles to go
City eyes on country road
Sylvia Ann
I'm coming home

M-mm fourteen miles to glance
My mind begins to dance
With Sylvia Ann
This could be my last chance

And I want for you
To treat my warm heart right tonight
Where there's a guitar playing
I'll be staying up
And out of sight.

M-mm fourteen miles to where
I can really breathe the air
Sylvia Ann
Would you, could you care?

And I want for you
To treat my cool heart right tonight
And harbor all my darkest secrets
In your neon night

Sylvia, Sylvia, Sylvia Ann...
Sylvia, Sylvia, Sylvia Ann...

M-mm fourteen miles away
Would you wait on me today
Sylvia Ann?
I'll be there right away.
