"17 Days" as written by Lisa Coleman, Matthew Robert Fink, Wendy Melvoin and Prince Rogers Nelson....
Called you
yesterday
you didn't answer your phone
The main drag
Is knowing that
you probably weren't at home alone

So here I sit in my lonely room
waitin' for my sunshine
But all I've got
Is two cigarettes
And this broken heart of mine

So let the rain come down
Let the rain come down
Let the rain come down, down
Let the rain come down
Let the rain come down
Let the rain come down, down

You've been gone
17 days
17 long nights
The main drag
Is knowing that
You're holding someone else tight

I wanna call you
Everyday
And beg you to be near me
But I know your head is underwater
I doubt that you could hear me

So let the rain come down
Let the rain come down
Let the rain come down, down
Let the rain come down
Let the rain come down
Let the rain come down, down

You've been gone
17 days
17 long nights
The main drag
Is knowing that
You're holding someone else tight

So here I sit in my lonely room
waiting for my sunshine
All I've got is 2 cigarettes
And this broken heart of mine

So let the rain come down
Let the rain come down
Let the rain come down, down

So let the rain come down
Let the rain come down
Let the rain come down, down

[guitar solo]
