0 (0 Likes / 0 Dislikes)
"7 Seconds" is about the first positive 7 seconds in the life of a child just born not knowing about the problems and violence in our world. 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 me I don't want you to look at me and think What's in you is in me What's in me is to help them Roughness 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 into this world It has no concept of the tone the skin is living in It's not a second, seven seconds away Just as long as I stay, I'll be waiting It's not a second, seven seconds away Just as long as stay, I'll be waiting I'll be waiting I'll be waiting I assume the reasons that push us to change everything I would like us to forget about their color So they can try to be optimistic, too many views on race that make them desparate Let's leave the door wide open so they can talk about their pain and joy Then we can give them information That will bring us all together Seven seconds away Just as long as stay, I'll be waiting It's not a second, seven seconds away Just as long as stay, I'll be waiting I'll be waiting I'll be waiting And when a child is born into this world It has no concept of the tone the skin is living in And there's a million voices And there's a million voices To tell you what you should be thinking so you better sober up for just a second Seven seconds away Just as long as stay I'll be waiting It's not a second, seven seconds away Just as long as stay, I'll be waiting It's not a second, seven seconds away Just as long as stay, I'll be waiting It's not a second, seven seconds away Just as long as stay, I'll be waiting
