"Seven Blocks" as written by and Jarrod Gorbel....
It was only 7 blocks walking to the subway
You can’t miss the trucks out near the elevator
So you get a chance to breathe
But in the dead of winter, you just have to freeze

But I never go out once I get home
Just seems pointless to venture out alone
If I can just lure you in here with me
Just say my name, baby, it’s up and coming

I'm not being cheap
I’m just being poor
So call yourself a car
And cross the boulevard

Why don’t you start thinking about
Coming home with me, coming home with
Why don’t you start thinking about
Coming home with, coming home with
Coming home with me

But the radiator's cold, the window's leaking winter
And we’re sleeping in our clothes
Creaking wooden floor, trip to the bathroom
Louder than the sex before

The bed slowly travels down on me
Incline of my room
The bed slowly travels down on me
Incline of the room

Why don’t you start thinking about
Coming home with me, you coming home with
Why don’t you start thinking about
Coming home with, coming home with
Coming home with me

Portions of the evening
I’m missing, it’s no mystery
I found receipts in a
The pieces that trace back
To our faithful, yeah, our meeting

It’s not easy finding someone else
When you’re still, you’re still bleeding
You’re still bleeding
I found someone else, I found someone else

She’s coming home with
She’s coming home with
She’s coming home with me

You told me the only reason you left
This is not my fault
You told me the only reason you left
This is not my fault

This is not my fault for never moving down
To New Orleans with you
This is not my fault for never moving down
To New Orleans with you, with you

    General CommentThe lyric in the first verse is "out here the're elevated"

    Talking about the train tracks. Jarrod used to live in Astoria where they have Elevated Train tracks. i grew up in Ozone Park near "the EL" so i love this song too :-) ..it reminds me of my crappy 1st Apartment and growing up in queens
