"Seven Days" as written by and Taylor....
They're seven days below us
That keep me hovered above the ground
And nights just blend into the morning
Definition is the first to go down

If I were to stay here between us
I might forget where I'm bound
So I can't stay in between us
I guess I'll walk away

And here to read the future
But forced to breathe out the past
And too many conversations
To uncover what was purposefully lost

Ah
Ah

And we all look so desperate
Showing the guidance that we lack
And we used to be so wistful
I guess we feel it's safer holding back

If I were to stay here between us
I might forget where I'm bound
So I can't stay in between us
I guess I'll walk away

    General CommentThis song seems to me to be about a relationship that never was. The people coming apart and then back together over and over, but never able to fix whatever problem led to the disjointedness. Conversations started by one of the people involved happen often, bringing up the past that person probably buried on purpose, for whatever reason, which is possibly the whole reason things are wrecked now. The speaker's expected to "read the future" and figure out how to make things right, but the way this other person keeps bringing up the past while not really sharing anything("I guess we feel it's safer holding back"), she can't move forward. The speaker is going to walk away, like it's a lost cause, but you can tell she wishes things could be different. So tired of dealing with dead ends it just seems futile to fight anymore.

    I love how desperate the strumming sounds.
