Seven Days

  • A Saturday downpour carved out rivers in the sand
    She said it was her first time to see the sea
    Helping her climb across those jetty rocks
    Was the first time I touched her hand

    The rain and the way that felt never let up all week
    By Thursday I knew everything about her
    And God, the last day I didn't wanna leave without her

    The sidewalks, the streets were soaked
    The sky was gray but you should've seen her face
    Shining like that lighthouse through all the rain
    And the way she called my name

    I've lived those seven days a thousand times
    Those seven days a thousand

    Time was like the tide, it came and went
    That old pier ran clear out into the mist
    My mind plays back that Tuesday night
    Again and again, and again

    I taste that saltwater taffy on her lips
    And Wednesday morning snuck in through the window
    We just laid there and listened to the waves come and go

    The sidewalks, the streets were soaked
    The sky was gray but you should've seen her face
    Shining like that lighthouse through all the rain
    And the way she called my name

    I've lived those seven days a thousand times
    Those seven days a thousand

    Moments with her, now they're all a blur
    Except for every second and every word
    Every drop of rain, every single grain of sand

    The sidewalks, the streets were soaked
    The sky was gray but you should've seen her face
    Shining like that lighthouse through all the rain
    And the way she called my name

    I've lived those seven days a thousand times
    Those seven days a thousand times

    Seven days a thousand times
    A thousand times
    Seven days a thousand times Writer/s: BILLY MONTANA, JON STONE, LEE BRICE
