"Seven" as written by Michael Ryan Abramson, Anthony E. Lannutti, Daniel Joseph Mcfarland and James C. Stem....
Lie awake completely satisfied and let the sweat run through my hair
Well, I haven't felt this way in quite some time, when I look over your not there
Pain I won't let you slip away, no everybody makes mistakes sometimes
Everyone here knows this is killing me
It tears the soul straight from my spine, but in the end I guess the truth is shown
That you won't ever really be mine
I shuffled through the lies and
Pain I won't let you slip away, no everybody makes mistakes sometimes
So rain on my parade, rain on my parade, rain
I figured it out this time and I guess that's a start
You're only half as smart as the one that tears you apart
Let the evidence show that I never really had a case
I'd like to wipe that smile right off your fucking face
Feel the tears run down so I guess I lost control
Everybody knows something I ain't ever gonna know
And if this wound ever heals maybe I'll sleep again
Somebody please kill me before I am dead
Lie awake completely satisfied and let the sweat run through my hair
Well I haven't felt this way in quite some time, when I look over your not there
Pain I won't let you slip away, no everybody makes mistakes
Now rain on my parade, rain on my parade rain
I won't let you, I won't let you make mistakes, make mistakes
I won't let you slip away cause everybody makes mistakes
I won't let you slip away I won't let you

    General CommentIt's probably about sex, but not just any sex. One night stands in particular. In this case, he wanted more than a one night stand but she didn't. He went to get her back but slowly realises that she will never be his. At first he gets angry ("I'd like to wipe that smile right off your fucking face") but then he comes to accept it.

    General CommentTo expand on my 'one night stand' theory:
    "Lie awake completely satisfied and let the sweat run through my hair" - It's just after having sex; the euphoric satisfaction.
    "Well, I haven't felt this way in quite some time" - Maybe he hasn't had sex for a long time or sex this good
    "when I look over your not there" - he looks across the bed but she's not there
    "rain on my parade" - ruin my happiness
    "That you won't ever really be mine" - although he really wants her more than just a one night stand, he realises that she doesn't and he accepts it.

    General CommentWow. In this song, his vocals sound so similar to the vocalist of Evergrey. Download "A Touch of Blessing" and you'll see what I mean.

    General CommentI agree with ryan, I think that some chick has broken up with him.

    I interpreted the lines

    "Lie awake completely satisfied and let the sweat run through my hair
    Well, I haven't felt this way in quite some time, when I look over your not there"

    As him having a 'good time' with himself, then sadly realizes he's all alone - he's imagining being with her but she's left him.
    The rest is pretty much self explanatory.
    That's just my spin on it.

    General CommentThis is a pretty cool song,I love when he says, 'It tears the soul straight from my spine, but in the end I guess the truth is shown' This whole song is pretty awesome. It is about how he wants more than just a one night stand from a woman like the people above said.
