"Seven" as written by Mark Hill, Darren John Hill and Craig Ashley David....
Baby, babe when I think about you
All I wanna do is be by your side
Take a little ride
Take a little

Baby, babe, you know I'm all about you
And all I wanna do is take a little ride
Maybe get inside
Maybe get in

Ma'ma told me boy someday that girl will take your mind and then you'll know
I never knew, but I do now, I never knew, but I do now
I love you, I love you, I love you, I love you
You, You, You, You, You, You, You

Ma'ma told me boy someday that girl will take your mind and then you'll know
I never knew, but I do now, I never knew, but I do now
I love you, I love you, I love you, I love you
You, You, You, You, You, You, You

Sour as my fingers
Dirty pick pocket
I can still taste you
I won't wash my hands

Red is the color of the sun with my eyes closed
I can still taste you
And I will again

Dark little place she digs to go
Dark little place she digs to go

Woman please I'm in your possession
You are my obsession

Wanna drink it, wanna drink it
Let me go down
Let me go down, Let me go down, Let me go down
Down, Down, Down, Down, Down

Ma'ma told me boy someday that girl will take your mind and then you'll know
I never knew, but I do now, I never knew, but I do now
I love you, I love you, I love you, I love you
You, You, You, You, You, You, You

Woman please I'm in your possession
You are my obsession

Let me drink you
Let me drink you, Let me drink you, Let me go down
Down, Down, Down
Reel me in, Reel me in now

Told me boy someday that girl's gonna steal your mind
And then you'll know
I never knew, but I do now
I never knew, but I do now
I love you

Dark little place she lets me go
Dark little place she lets me go

Red is the color of the sun with my eyes closed
I can still taste you
And I will again

    General CommentCool, I cant believe ill be the first to comment on this sweet song. I like live and the studio version, but i digress. To me, this song is about ordering take out ;) Or diving for muffs, or whatever innuendo you can think of.Sour as my fingers/Dirty pick pocket/I can still taste you/I won't wash my hands or Let me drink you, Let me go down. All prime of examples of Dave's apparent hunger for that great light.

    My Interpretationi think i cracked the code, or at least discovered my own interpretation of this song..
    and what an amazing, seductive song it is..

    ok here goes.

    everyone remember that episode of Friends where Monica goes over the seven erogenous zones on a woman?
    1,2,1,2,3,3,5,4,3,2,2,2,4,6,2,4,6,4,2,… 4,7,5,7,6,7,7,7,7,7, 7, 7! 7! 7! 7! 7!

    well.. i wonder if since the song is in general about wanting to go down on a girl, if he is talking about number 7 on the list of zones..
    number 7 on her list is the same area he wants to visit in this song..

    my first post.. lemme know your thoughts!!!

    General CommentYes, this is a very sexual song, but it's more than just about the act of sex. Just read these lyrics:

    "Woman please I be your possession
    You are my obsession
    Let me go down
    Down, down, down, down, down, down, down"

    The man is begging to go down on her! The song's main theme is about the sexual power a woman can have over a man (ie: because we men typically think with the wrong "head"). Just my thoughts...

    My InterpretationFirst of all...I love this song because it gets right to it and the beat just pumps you up. I feel so sexy and in power when I pull up somewhere and have the song blast and you here Dave "BABY, WHEN I THINK ABOUT YOU...." AHH its incredible...

    Anyways, my interpretation of the song is this...How Dave is obsessed with his girl. How she has a spell over him and when he thinks about her al he wants to do is take her for a ride. He wants her to be with him all the time. He is talking about how his mom told him that hey this girl is going to have you wrapped around her finger and he didn't know until now. Its so sexy to me that Dave sings the emotion that we think and feel but maybe are too ashamed or shy to admit. He is so in love and shows that very clearly. This song is a great reason of why I am in love with Dave's writing and expression.

    I love "Red is the color of the sun with my eyes closed." It so simplistic yet true. Close your eyes and look up to the sun and you know what he is talking about. He is such a dreamer. LOVE IT

    General CommentWhen I first heard this song the first thing that got my attention was the sassy melody at the beginning. Then after listening more I was taken away with the lyrics and shook my head at what I was hearing. Next thing I knew I was biting my lip.....

    What a sexy song. hee he =)

    General CommentOh yeah and I think the song is called Seven because that's how many minutes it takes him to 'get the job done down town'
    lol
    Notice he sings down consecutively 7 times. & also sings "you" consecutively 7 times

    General CommentI agree with everyone's interpretations of the song. I just wanted to say "I can still taste you. And I will again," is one of the sexiest lines ever written.
