"7 Days" as written by Clint Boge, Glenn Ashley Esmond, Kurt Goedhart and Benjamin James Hall....
Lost our way
And on the road we walk alone
Into the gray
There's no signs to lead us home
Are we bound to fall?
And lose the light of day
Have we lost it all?
How long we've been away

Break me
You're breaking me so slow
Don't make me
Don't make me let you go

Seven days
In the desert of your heart
Count the ways
Every footstep to the start
We got so close this time
Have you come to take me home?

I am always on the outside looking in

You're taking me down so slow

    General CommentI think this song is about someone getting tired of waiting for the other person to commit in a relationship.

    "seven days
    in the desert of your heart
    count the ways
    every footstep to the start
    we got so close this time
    have you come to take me home?"

    No matter how much they try they arent getting anywhere.

    "i am always on the outside looking in
    you're taking me down so slow "

    and one of them is about to give up on the other.

    "break me
    you're breaking me so slow
    don't make me
    don't make me let you go"

    General Comment I don't know who/what speaks more in this song: the singer, the drummer, bassist, or even guitarist!
    The entire ALBUM resonates with melodic passion. It's hard to tell where the real zeal bleeds from, but the lyrics are enough to feel the tension between the singer and his struggle with the love of his life. The ambient nature of the sound mixed with the words are/is enough to trap a listener into the "outside looking in" he's talking about...

    This is a band to look for in 2010.
