7 Seconds

This song is by Love Like Blood and appears on the album Enslaved + Condemned (2000).

Don't see me from a distance
Don't look at my smile
And think that I don't know
What's under and behind
I don't want you to look at me and think

Roughneck and rudeness, we should be using
On the ones who practice wicked charms
For the sword and the stone, bad to the bone
Battle's not over even when it's won

And when a child is born
It has no concept
Of the tone the skin is living in

It's not a second
7 seconds away
Just as long as I stay
I'll be waiting

It's not a second
7 seconds away
Just as long as I stay
I'll be waiting

I would like us to forget about their color
So they can be optimistic
Too many views on rave that make them desperate

It's not a second
7 seconds away
Just as long as I stay
I'll be waiting

It's not a second
7 seconds away
Just as long as I stay
I'll be waiting

And when a child is born
It has no concept
Of the tone the skin is living in million voices
There's a million voices

It's not a second
7 seconds away
Just as long as I stay
I'll be waiting

It's not a second
7 seconds away
Just as long as I stay
I'll be waiting
