"Seven" as written by Rollo Armstrong, Ayalah Deborah Bentovim and Nemo Jones....
I forgot what my father said
I forgot what he said
I forgot what my mother said
As we lay upon your bed

A city full of flowers
A city full of rain

I got seven days to live my life
Or seven ways to die

I forgot what my brother said
I forgot what he said
I don't regret anything at all
I remember how we wept

On a bridge of violent people
I was small enough to cry
I got seven days to live my life
Or seven ways to die

Hold my face before you
Still my trembling heart
Seven days to live my life
Or seven ways to die

The gods forgot they made me
So I forget them too
I listen to the shadows
I play among their graves

My heart was never broken
My patience never tried
I got seven days to live my life
Or seven ways to die

Seven days to live my life
Or seven ways to die

Seven

    General CommentGod I love this song!! I used to have a live recording of it, which was sooo beautiful... (hmm I should try and find that again)
    I love Bowie so much, I don't want to oversell this but Seven is just a gem!

    (hmm perhaps not the most useful response but hey, if it gets someone to listen to this song.. :p)
