Jim ReevesSeven Days

Seven days can be a long long time my friend When you dream about the cold black chair with straps for both your hands If you wonder what it's like to know your life will soon be gone Your thoughts are mostly bout the things you wish you'd never done Your face is there in the darkest night so clear upon my wall Yet soon I know I'm to face the darkest night of all For on my head they'll place the thing that brings eternal peace Then death will be the way to make this ache inside me cease A stolen kiss a warm embrace a secret rendezvous They didn't seem so wrong that night when first I met you Then there he was insane with rage to see you held so tight I didn't mean to kill him when we had that awful fight Seven days I've sat here thinking bout our sin Seven days to realize the trouble that I'm in Seven days to weigh the price the man will make me pay Seven days to think bout the night you ran away Then you were gone and he lay dead a smile upon his lips He knew this was the last time you'd give him the slip Knew too the price for stolen love was just too much to pay Perhaps I too can smile like him when my life ebbs away He's coming out to lead me on to that little cell-like room I fancy your face is smiling as we walk through the gloom Perhaps you've found another who wants a rendezvous But I'll I'll bet he can't imagine the price of loving you Seven days I've sat here thinking bout our sin seven days to realize the trouble I'm in Seven days to weigh the price the man will make me pay Seven days to think about the night you ran away
