Sixty miles or six hundred.
The shadow of the pines
Or the sunny station wagon.
We're looking at the map
And we're laughing and we're going.

I hope some other time
I won't care so much about
Being understood as I do now.
I will leave myself and go away.
I would like to follow you away.

Would you let me take care of you?
I would like to sing you a song in the morning.
Walk you to the car when you're going
Where you're going.

And then some other time
I wouldn't care so much about
Being understood as I do now.
I would leave myself and go away.
I would like to follow you away.

Walk you to the car when you're going
Where you're going.

I wouldn't care so much about
Being understood as I do now.
I would leave myself and go away.
I would like to follow you away.

Seeing you I know what is right
And what is true.
Oh I see the way I want to be.
Oh I see the way I want to be.

    General CommentIt's funny how she can sing such common lines and make them sound so amazing.
    Her voice really brings them to life.
    "Walk you to the car when you're going where you're going".
    Someone walking me to the car is nice and all, but when she sings it, it sounds like the greatest thing in the world.
    In another Innocence Mission song she sings "are you feeling better than before?"
    -something you and I have probably heard in our lifetimes, but when she sings it it really makes you feel like she cares deeply for this person and it come across very genuine.

    They throw around the phrase: "they could sing the phonebook and it would sound great" WAY too much, but in her case, it's really true.
    amazing singer. amazing voice.
