"Seven Days Too Long" as written by Jim Bailey and Vernon Harrell....
The first time I called you, Girl, they said you wasn't home,
And the second time I telephoned, ah, they all told me to leave you alone,
We had a lovers' quarrel, yes we did, like all lovers do,
I wanted to make-up, it's only left to you now,

Cos seven days is too long without you, Baby,
Come on back to me,
Seven days is too long without you, Baby,
Come on back to me.

I refuse to break-up, ah, but I'm too weak to fight,
And our love is too strong, yes it is, to go on and let it die,
Let's sort out these problems, cos I, I can see the danger signs,
And it's written on your face, just as it worries my face.

Cos seven days is too long without you, Baby,
Come on back to me,
Seven days is too long without you, Baby,
Come on back to me.

You've got me so wired up, ah, I can't even concentrate,
I say good things will come, I say good things will come to those who wait (wait),
I'm not gonna wait around forever, listen to me, listen:

Seven days is too long without you, Baby,
Come on back to me,
Seven days is too long without you, Baby,
Come on back to me.

Seven days is far too long,
It's much too, much too, much too long,
Seven days without you.

    General CommentI've got a bit of a fetish about cover versions that are better than the original versions. There are many.

    Sadly, despite being superior to some of the songs that do, this one doesn't make the list. How can it? It's still a belter though and i absolutely love their interpretation of this nearly as much as the original.

    You can tell Rowland didn't write the lyrics because they are fairly straightforward and easy to hear when listening to the song.

    I don't think they need any interpretation. I just wanted to give a thumbs up to this tune.

    General CommentA minor lyric correction....

    And it's written on your face, just as it worries my face.

    Should be.....

    And it's written on your face, just as well as my face.
