"Seven Day Mile" as written by and Colm Macconiomaire David Odlum....
Your will changes everyday
It's a road you've come upon
I can't help you if you want to
Down here nothing gets a chance
It's a threat that's real enough
We can burn this bridge or stay here
It's a breeze everlasting like time
Making so sure that
I can return just to see it from your side again

Always never seems to work
It's a word you never learned
I don't really see a way clear
It's a sea ever churning in tides
In the sureness of time
And our words will repeat now forever again
Well this might take a while to figure out
So don't you rush it
And hold your head up high right through the doubt
'Cause it's just a matter of time
You've been running so fast
It's the seven day mile
Has you torn in-between here and running away

I don't have a choice in this
It's a road I've come upon
You can join us if you want to

Always never seems to work
It's a word we never learned
Time will be the judge of all here
This might take a while to figure out now
So don't you rush it
And hold you're head up high
Right through the doubt now
'Cause its just a matter of time
You've been running so fast
It's the seven day mile
Has you torn in-between here and running away
It's line you've been wanting
It's your time
It's the seven day mile
Has you torn in-between here and never again
Never again

And down here nothing gets chance
It's a world too big for us
Time will be the judge of all here
This might take a while to figure out now
So don't you rush it
And hold you're head up high
Right through the doubt now
'Cause its just a matter of time
You've been running so fast
It's the seven day mile
Has you torn in-between here and running away
(why are you running?)

    Song FactHe introduced this song live with a story:
    This song is about
    If in your live you ever reach a wall, an unsurpassable thing.
    Something that happens where you can't get passed this place.
    Your stuck infront of it. You try to go under. Try to go over. Try to go round.
    But you can't get passed it. It's just a dead end.

    There is always an other option.
    You can turn an 180 degrees and walk around the whole fucking world.
    Until your at the other side of the wall and you find yourself exactly where you need to be.
    It's gonna take a little time sometimes. But this song is about that, about taking the long way.

    General CommentThis song was written for their drummer Paul Brennan 'Binzer' and about him trying to decide whether to stay or leave the Frames.

    It was around the time that they were starting to record the "Dance The Devil" album.

    "It's the seven day mile / Has you torn in-between here and running away.. This might take a while to figure out now / So don't you rush it / And hold you're head up high / Right through the doubt now"
