Six or Seven

Muted and gray are all the words that you say
I’m not listening anymore anyway
Perfectly shaded everything seemed at first
But that was just well rehearsed
“This will be the last time” I say
But always, it’s all the same
Six or seven times before today
Things have ended up in the same way

Chorus:
But the lightness in your tone
And the brightness of your eyes
Keep me coming back for another time
It’s the flashing of your love
And it’s the breaking of your heart
That make me hope that this could be the start
Of something good

Surrounded by the things that have sucked you dry
It won’t be long now before you die
Blinded by a fear of pain and loneliness
You crawl back into the arms of such a mess
Come on girl get outside of your head
Forget about all the dirty things that he’s said
Six or seven times you’ve disappeared
This time was the last time I fear

Chorus:
But the lightness in your tone
And the brightness of your eyes
Keep me coming back for another time
It’s the flashing of your love
And it’s the breaking of your heart
That make me hope that this could be the start
Of something good

You wish everything could be the same
But I just can’t quite shake the pain
All these words and all these apologies
Don’t make up for all the things that I’ve seen
I’ve been busted up from your hands
And I know that you don’t understand
Six or seven times we’ve made it right
But I think that I should cut it off tonight

Chorus:
But the lightness in your tone
And the brightness of your eyes
Keep me coming back for another time
It’s the flashing of your love
And it’s the breaking of your heart
That make me hope that this could be the start
Of something good

Run away, run away, you gotta get away, get away
Before it’s too late
I wanna help you
Get away, get away you gotta run away, run away
Before it’s too late

Six or seven years up to today
Don’t throw it all away

    General CommentObadiah Parker are so unappreciated/underplayed. This song is brilliant - the lyrics, the instrumentation, his voice. The rest of the EP is pretty f'ing fantastic, too.
