Lyrics
I've got the keys in my hand
And I'm not just talking
I'll take to the road
And I won't stop driving
Until I've put a thousand miles
Between you and me
You don't think that I'll do it
But you don't really know for sure
And neither do I
That's why I've got to try

Seven years is not the kind of time
You can just leave behind
Memories linger and
Mistakes come clear

Seven years is not the kind of time
You can just leave behind
Even with that distance
I still feel near to you

Standing at pump number three
I watch the numbers fly by
And the dollars become hours
Since I left without goodbyes
I was always the coward
Could never stand a scene
And now I got what I wanted
And I'm running away again

Seven years is not the kind of time
You can just leave behind
Memories linger and
Mistakes come clear

Seven years is not the kind of time
You can just leave behind
Even with that distance
I still feel near to you

No matter how far I go
I can never get away
And I'm just kidding myself
If I think that I can
Even in the worst time
You were just a thought away
Well some things never change

Seven years is not the kind of time
You can just leave behind
Memories linger and
Mistakes come clear

Seven years is not the kind of time
You can just leave behind
Even with that distance
I still feel near to you
