"Settle Down" as written by and Don/campbell Henley....
Settle down, don't settle down without me, no, no
Settle down, I'll settle down for good, yeah
Settle down, I'll settle down around you, yeah, yeah
Settle down, I'll settle down for sure, yeah

Whatever I can do, I will
'Cause I'm good like that
For seven years, seven days, and seven hours
I took my chances, yeah
Whatever I can do, I will
'Cause I want

Never lose that feeling
Never lose that feeling

Settle down, I'll settle down around you, yeah, yeah
Settle down, I'll settle down for good, yeah
Settle down, don't settle down without me, no, no
Settle down, I'll settle down for sure, yeah

Never lose that feeling
Never, no, no
Never lose your feelings
Never, that's for sure

Never lose that feeling
Never lose that feeling
Never lose that feeling
Never lose that feeling
Never lose that feeling
Never lose that feeling

Whatever I can do, I will
'Cause I want to, and what I want I get
Seven years, seven days, and seven hours
I took my chances, yeah

Settle down, don't settle down without me, no, no
Settle down, I'll settle down for good, yeah
Settle down, I'll settle down around you, yeah, yeah
Settle down, I'll settle down for sure, yeah

Never lose that feeling
Never, no, no, no

    General CommentMusically prolly one o the best off the album. any one have any idea about what the "seven" symbolism means? Billy Corgan always includes it somewhere on every album (plus there were 7 pumpkins albums -- hes said its all deliberate in interviews)

    General Comment7 is usually associated with blasphamy and evil... Seven Deadly sins, seven levels of hell - Dante ect. Who knows? All I know is that this song is great. This album usually calms me down while I'm driving and I listen to it all the time.

    General Commenti thought that tied in with alchemy symbolism..."when seven is done..." or something of that type of thing...

    General CommentI'll get bashed for being the guy who add's the Jesus stuff, but oh well. According to the Bible, 7 is the "perfect" number. Sorta like how 6 is imperfect, hence 666. Anyways...just an idea.

    General Commentgood call mavrikz, you're right on... another instance of this is in a pixies song, "Monkey Gone to Heaven." the symbolic & biblical use of 5, 6, 7 are used there. and no bashing on you or Jesus. :)
    grace for all.

    General CommentIs the song perhaps a reference to the Pumpkins at all?

    General Commentemann333 is prolly right with the Pixies thing - in the song Frank Black says "man is 5, devil is 6, God is 7". I dont think the 5 bit's in the Bible (Revelation is where all that comes from) but it sorta makes sense. 6 is imperfect, 7 is complete. Like the 7 days of creation, the seven angels of judgement, the seven stars etc.
