12-waypastindigo

I come to you like a mailbox, every day I’m finding something new,
watching you like a rose bush, with your colors all in full bloom
following you through a bad dream, all the way from hell to heaven,
whenever I’m with you, child, everything adds up to 7
+++ 7 days and 7 nights it snowed and all the lights went out,
+++ 7 colors of the rainbow, from red, through green, and way past indigo,
+++++ way past indigo..

sometimes I think you’re a roadblock, when you stop me dead in my tracks,
watching you in shell shock, wondering how I’ll ever make it back
up this landslide, all the way from hell to heaven,
whenever I’m with you, child, everything adds up to 7
+++ 7 ships with 7 sails all setting out from me to you,
+++ 7 days of every week I’m wondering if this love is true,
+++ 7 candles in the room we burned when all the lights went out
+++ 7 colors of the rainbow, from red, through green, and way past indigo,
+++++ way past indigo..

I come to you like a mailbox, lately I’ve been finding postage due,
watching you like a rose bush, now that summer’s almost through, & I’m
following you through a bad dream, all the way from hell to heaven,
whenever I’m with you, child, everything adds up to 7
+++ 7 notes in every tune in every song I wrote for you,
+++ 7 days of every week I’m wondering what I oughta do,
+++ 7 ships with 7 sails all sank the night the lights went out,
+++ 7 colors of the rainbow, from red, through green, and way past indigo,
+++++ way past indigo…
