Marshall Crenshaw Seven Miles an Hour Lyrics

Well I've got a new job in a gray office tower
And I'm stuck here for around another hour
Wearing a dark frown

Watching the second hand go 'round
When I can I'll leave without hesitation
And make my way on to a better destination
Racing the daylight

Back to where I was last night
Going seven miles an hour can't slow down
Seven miles an hour burnin' the ground
Cause I've got a good thing waiting way across town
Seven miles an hour can't slow down
The sidewalk's jammed up

Now I wanna move in a hurry
Have I found an angel?
Well I think she might be
If there ever was one

Can't just walk, I've got to run
Seven miles an hour can't slow down
Seven miles an hour burnin' the ground
Well I gotta good thing waiting way across town
Seven miles an hour can't slow down
Racing the daylight

Back to where I was last night
Seven miles an hour can't slow down
Seven miles an hour burnin' the ground
Cause I got a good thing waiting way across town
Seven miles an hour can't slow down
Seven miles an hour can't slow down
Seven miles an hour can't slow down
Seven miles an hour
