Level 42 - Seven Years Lyrics




There's thunder rolling in your eyes
it's raining in your heart
what lies around the corner
you have seen an hundred times
but you never thought anything like it would happen to you
baby's gone
he walked out on you

Seven years have come and gone
all that time for you
and now both our hearts must beat the drum
to a different tune
send all those dreams away baby

You can lose yourself in yourself
hurt yourself a little more
turn the key and hate the boy
forget a soul in distress, leave the real world to others
that's not the way he's coming back ever again
baby's gone
now what are you gonna do

Seven years have come and gone
all that time for you
and now both our hearts must beat the drum
to a different tune
send all those dreams away baby

Each time I see a love, a love that's dying
I know what I would do, I know what I would do
but you can't see 'cause your heart is the way girl you're blinded
and its hurting so bad, and its hurting so bad
he's so gone, gone away and you can't find him
was there ever a day, just one day you were happy
believe in the power of love everlasting
to the end of all time, to the end of all time

In a funny way I don't feel sorry, you're getting what you served
just you remember very well the lesson you have learned
and its August now, your seven years are gone
all that time for you

Send all those dreams away baby

    HOLDSWORTH guitar pioneer

  2. thesun collective147

    One of the best L42 singles ever...Allan is a huge bonus

  3. PYT 777

    I met Allan Holdsworth backstage at Hammersmith Odeon Dec 90, such a wonderful guy as well as a brilliant musician!
    Mark, thank you for giving me the album a year before it's release, it means so much to me!
    RIP Alan Murphy and Allan Holdsworth 💘

  4. mrpentium

    I have listen to both, but never realized he played for L42. Under use of genius

  5. Larry N

    miss you Allan, nice job L42

  6. Truth In Shredding

    Ironic that they push the best bit out to nearly 4:00. What's the point of having a genius to keep him on a leash

    Bleh Blah

    XD im sure they had their reasons. but i though the same

    Andrea Scotto

    I think it's a sort of "icing on the cake". I spent hours and hours in my life, listening to the last final seconds of my favorite guitar solos at the end of the tracks. Often the best part of the song; it's like a way to say hello and give us a little jewel

    Nick Drake

    @Andrea Scotto Same thought here. Otherwise, give AH more space in any song on Earth and he would have unintentionally stolen the show. In the other hand, having bits of *the man* in such mainstream acts is a blessing for listeners, and a humble sign of acknowledgement coming from a big world where he has been almost sistematically excluded

    mrpentium

    @Andrea Scotto dead on about " listening to the last final seconds of my favorite guitar solos at the end of the tracks. ". Its cruel... Listening to drops of honey, heaven, as they fade into nothingness....

  7. Jaime Gomez Del Campo

    Carne de gallina al escuchar esto
