  • 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
    And the rain and the way it 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 and streets were soaked and the sky was gray
    But you should've seen her face, shining like that light house
    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
    And 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
    And we just laid there and listened to the waves come and go

    The sidewalks and streets were soaked and the sky was gray
    But you should've seen her face, shining like that light house
    Through all the rain and the way she called my name
    Well, I've lived those seven days a thousand times,
    Those seven days a thousand

    Moments with her, now there all a blur, except for every second,
    Every word, every drop of rain, every single grain of sand

    The sidewalks and streets were soaked and the sky was gray
    But you should've seen her face, shining like that light house
    Through all the pouring rain and the way she called my name
    Well, I've lived those seven days a thousand times,
    Those seven days a thousand times Writer/s: BILLY MONTANA, JON STONE, LEE BRICE
