7000 days

© words and music: garnett betts

There’s no wonder
Home would call you south
Alessandra
The years made love and doubt

Half your life’s been here
You’re no longer the one
Who stepped down from the train
Who stepped down from the train
So young

And you’re no longer
A language on your own
Alessandra
For all the life you’ve known

Love and night school plans
Til the hungry years were gone
But lately you’ve been lonely
And tired of being so strong

Chorus

But if you stop and start again
There’s no telling where that will end
The Northern lights will light
All your Spanish ways
After 7000 days, 7000 days

Bridge

Do you remember when
You thought the spring so cold
No dancing in the square but the sky danced
Green and gold

Will it be leaving here
That lies awake with you
Do you belong where you began
In your Coyoacan?

Chorus

But if you stop and start again
There’s no telling where that will end
The Northern lights will light
All your Spanish ways
After 7000 days, 7000 days

Half your life’s been here
You’re no longer the one
Who stepped down from the train
Who stepped down from the train
So young

Chorus

But if you stop and start again
There’s no telling where that will end
The Northern lights will light
All your Spanish ways
After 7000 days, 7000 days

Do you belong where you began
In your Coyoacan?
