Notes

Marie: Not my favourite, really. Per: It was actually off the album at one point. But it made on again in the final stage. Talk about survival instinct. Has to mean something. Marie: Maximum volume in the boy’s room. Per: It’s a long, long journey to the other side…

7twenty7 is ready to move
You know she packed her bags
With nothing left to prove
I thought I didn’t care
Now I’m falling through
Wouldn’t you?

Well, it’s a long long journey to the other side
Oh I’ve been wishing all night I was on that flight
And god you’d better take care of the sweetest eyes
I hear myself swallowing the tears I cry
I hear myself swallowing the tears I cry

7twenty7 is up in the air
You know I feel her hands
On me everywhere
I thought I didn’t care
Now I’m saying a prayer
Hey mister, do you know the way
To salvation square?

It’s a long long winter ’til the birds will sing
Oh I’ll be waiting all night for the phone to ring
I’m going up in smoke and phoney magazines
Everything is just pieces of my stupid dreams
Everything is just spieces of my stupid dreams

With the clouds passing by
With the clouds passing by
It’s all right

7twenty7 is close to the sky
It carries the world
Between hello and goodbye
Like the Monday we met
That disappeared in a breath
Like the Sunday she left
Forever smelling of death

Another jet black night
Another drink to go
Oh I’ll be diving my head in the pure white snow
God you’d better take care of this gold skinned friend
Tell me, will I ever see her again
Tell me, will I ever see her again
