Seven Nights Seven Days

Album: We Need Medicine (2013)
  • Oh my darlin' I'll go down and commute
    Until one hundred souls
    There's a fire on the moon
    I'll be over the line, I'll be under the spell
    I'll be the comeback king
    On his way home from hell

    Seven nights, seven days
    Seven wishes that will bury this place
    Another reason not to get out of bed

    Show me the way brother
    Give me a sign sister
    I'm not the only one who's waiting to be born
    I see the day comin'
    I see the time runnin' out
    I see all of my dreams ragged and torn

    Oh my darlin' all my sympathy's gone
    And my sunsets are strange
    My time's gettin' on
    They'll rip me to shreds like it's never been seen
    'Cause I never convinced them that I meant what I mean

    Seven nights, seven days
    Seven wishes that will bury this place
    Another reason not to get out of bed

    Show me the way brother
    Give me a sign sister
    I'm not the only one who's waiting to be born
    I see the day comin'
    I see the time runnin' out
    I see all of my dreams ragged and torn
    I see all of my dreams ragged and torn
    I see all of my dreams ragged and torn

    Seven nights, seven days
    Seven wishes that will bury this place
    Another reason not to get out of bed
    Another reason not to, another reason not to
    Another reason not to, another reason not to
    Another reason not to get out of bed

    Show me the way brother
    Give me a sign sister
    I'm not the only one who's waiting to be born
    I see the day comin'
    I see the time runnin' out
    I see all of my dreams ragged and torn
    I see all of my dreams ragged and torn
    I see all of my dreams ragged and torn
    I see all of my dreams ragged and torn Writer/s: JOHN PAUL LAWLER
