Seven Day Smile

Lyrics

Went to the sky
And whats the difference anyway
Caught on my mind
And whats the difference anyway
Seven day smile
It doesn’t matter anyway
Time to unwind
It doesn’t matter anyway
It must be something that we’ve got
She still risks getting me allot
She thinks i’m something that I’m not
Tell me now

Making it shine
It doesn’t matter anyway
Seven day smile
It doesn’t matter anyway

It must be something that we’ve got
She still risks getting me allot
She thinks i’m something that I’m not
Tell me now
Whatever it is the world knows thats between us

    Hi there
    Back in 2001 the song 7 day smile featuring ( please correct me if I’m wrong ) Jane weaver or Kate wheeler ….
    It came as an added b-side on a Doves record , that I ordered online . I’m unable to find this track anywhere on YouTube .
    I have the song on almost every mixed disc , that I’d ever made , back when CDs were a thing .

    So, I’m sure if I search through a few large stacks of scratched , burned CDs in my closet , it will turn up .

    But if anyone could reply with the correct name of the female vocalist , I’d thank you a thousand times , stacked on top of a million more 🙂
    And won’t repeat ,nor write you another story about a chicken .

    If you don’t reply, I’ll leave you with this week’s stupid joke I wrote

    Why did the chicken cross the road ?
    He wanted to tell you about all of his emotional problems .

    ( extended version below)
    He’d choose to do this repeatedly.
    He’d just cross the road to our band rehearsal , huff down half a bag of weed , and insist on sharing overly detailed , unfunny , pot smoke filled , long winded ,boring ,one sided stories about every last detail of his disfunctional love life , and loveless childhood ,and being raised by wealthy ,sociopathic parents , ….instead of focusing on the drum parts , that I’d been trying to teach him to play ,for over 13 months of band practice.

    That poor chicken eventually pushed me to recorded all my parts into a looper .I had my fill of this chicken and so many similar chickens , I’d encountered before him. So many chickens crossed my road….well..
    I had no room left for my own chicken tendencies,and went on to play all my shows solo, ….but not before dropping him off , back across the street ,with his sad girlfriend ,at they’re therapist’s office. …where they could spend all their time and money obsessing about negative aspects of life, rather than creating new and fun experiences ……And although I feel bad for the little guy, the show must go on.

    Poor chicken …he had so much potential , but such a lowly support base . I hope all those depressed people he would rant about habitually ,don’t get bored with tormenting him,and one day finally eat him . The chicken’s name is Cornjob ….Cornjob ,the pot smoking , floor mat , road crossing chicken .

    ….see how hard that was to get through …. ?

    The things I’ve endured for a little piece of music to be developed and shared with others . Unreal.

    Be greatful that you’ve never had to spend a life time in a chicken coup . If you had,the world would have never had the opportunity to be inspired by your wonderful band , with such brilliant use of space, texture , personality , and sonic perfection .
    Thank you Doves for staying clear of the chicken coup, and respecting the focus it takes to develop a collective vision , and being resilient enough to allow your music to breath ,and take flight … which it damn well did sirs !

    So who sang on seven day smile ?
    I miss that song in my rotation

    Sorry bout that bucket of chickens . Won’t happen again
