For the Cover Competition, running at songwriter-forum-kitchen.com I covered 'Seven Years', a beautiful track, originally written by my fellow kitchener Michael Heider (soundcloud.com/michaelheider) (plz listen to the original as well, it's on his profile!)

Here's the lyrics (I changed them just a little bit while singing, sometimes it's easier to sing when just changing a few little words)

Seven Years

I'm sorry for
These last few years
I wasn't home
Maybe another time

I took a break
I took my time
I left a note
And left you right here
Leave a message at the beep

I didn't call
I didn't write
And still I hear you sing

Just look at us
How far we've come
In seven years
The things we've said
The things we've done
In seven years

I can't believe
How time has flown
Away with me...

It's been a while
Since we last met
I've missed you, dear
But something's different

You sure have changed
The girl next door
Is all grown up
So hard to recognize
I don't remember you this way

I may be wrong
But in my mind
I think I hear you sing

Just look at us
How far we've come
In seven years (in seven years)
The things we've seen
The things we've done
These seven years (these seven years)

But woaahh!
One thing I'd like to know!
You tell me: Was it worth it?

You told me:
Don't grow up too fast
It's like you knew
But tell me:
How could I grow up
Without you?!

Just look at us
How much we've missed
In seven years...
It's been too long
Since we have kissed
Oh seven years...

Just look at us
How far we've come
In seven years (in seven years)
The things we've seen
The things we've done
These seven years (these seven years)

I can't believe
How time has flown
Away with me...

Cheers!!
