Seven Years

Album: Translating the Name (2003)
  • Taking on seven years the holy ghost had left alone
    Test my arms, kick like crazy
    And I've been trying way to long
    Only if he could push his way off to fight you
    I'm sorry, I'm sorry, I'm not sure
    Getting off my chest
    The story ends

    I would find a way without you
    (Tell him his eyes see too clear)
    That mistake was gold
    I know that without you
    Its something that I could never do
    That was why staple the eyes and
    Seven dates for me to sell machines
    And tear on

    Seven years you assured me
    That Id be fine if I complied
    Only push the way off to fight you
    I'm sorry I'm sorry I'm not sure
    Getting my chest the story now ends
    I would find a way without you
    (Tell him his eyes see too clear)

    Don't treat me I'm to blame
    Don't treat me like I ever accused you Writer/s: LEE ALEXANDER
