Seven

It only took seven seconds to notice your presence,
It only took seven seconds for our eyes to meet,
It only took seven seconds for my heart to decide,
It only took seven seconds for my mind to question,
It only took seven seconds to start my new life lesson.

It only took seven seconds. 

It only took seven hours for questions to travel,
It only took seven hours for you to linger,
It only took seven hours to prepare for our next approach,
It only took seven hours to excite me for the dimming light,
It only took seven hours to get through the night.

It only took seven hours. 

It only took seven days for questions to be answered,
It only took seven days to know your name,
It only took seven days for urges to push,
It only took seven days to make a choice,
It only took seven days to hear your voice.

It only took seven days. 

It only took seven months to fall deeper, 
It only took seven months for secrets to unravel.
It only took seven months to get closer,
It only took seven months for secret to be broken,
It only took seven months for feelings to be open.

It only took seven months.

It only took seven years to share a moment,
It only took seven years to take bigger steps,
It only took seven years for everything to change, 
It only took seven years to reveal your true colors,
It only took seven years for my heart to drain completely,
It only took seven years for what we've had to be gone,
It only took seven years to move on.

It only took seven years.
