"Seven" as written by and Alex Turner....
Well, I wrote my number down.
I'd never wrote it down before.
I was gonna bring over like something from a film but
I didn't have the bottle at all.

Well I had a look and you kept staring.
Your head pairing up with mine
Cos your so pretty and I'm so shy.
You proper did give me the eye though im sure you did
Well I went outside, couldn't say i tried.
And I felt regret.
But in a flash yeah i'd dashed back in.
Cos the ship had'nt sailed yet.

And when i did I couldn't see your face
I could see your mates but that wouldn't do.
I dashed around to find you
But you were nowhere to be seen
Oh no no

na na na na na na na na na na na
na na na na na na na na na na na
na na na na na na na na na na na
na na na na na nooooo

Well yeah she flew away.
She seemed like weeks or months away.
(missing lines)

Yeah but i learned my lesson though.
Your so pretty and i'm so shy

    General Commentseeing a girl and not having the confidence to go over and speek to her. Then deciding to go back in to look for her and not being able to find her. The last verse is about remembering the girl and wondering what might have happened.

    well there my thoughts

    General Commentere i must of have a different version of this ;s

    "Well I wrote my number down
    Never wrote it down before
    Was gonna bring it over like something from a film
    But I didn't have the bottle at all

    Well I'm looking and you kept staring
    Your thoughts bearing up with mine
    And when you're so pretty and I'm so shy
    You probably didn't give me the eye but I'm sure you did

    Well I went outside
    Couldn't say I tried
    And I felt regret
    Because you haven't bashed me and dashed back in
    Cause the ship hasn't sailed yet

    But when I did I couldn't see your face
    I could see your mates but that wouldn't do
    Well I dashed around, tried to find you
    But you were, nowhere to be seen
    Oh no no...


    la la la, la la la, la, la la la la,
    la la la, la la la, la, la la la la,
    la la la, la la la, la, la la la la,

    Well she moved in ways, that kept her there
    In our minds for days
    And weeks and months
    We was that amazed
    And there she stayed
    Surrounded by the what if's and the maybe's."

    yeah they were playing a gig in nottingham and alex saw this lass & he liked her but when he went to find her she'd gone :|
