ABS | 7 Ways

LYRICS:

I don't know who but it wasn't me
He wasn't all that you'd thought he'd be
And then broke your heart
Girl you should have let me know
'Cos you left it kind of hard for me to show
Just how it feels when I'm next to you
'Cos them other girls
They ain't nothing next to you
No doubt in my mind 'cos I know it's you
So tell me lady what you wanna do

'Cos loving you
Is all that I know girl why would I lie
If you want me to
I'll give you just a little more time to decide
If I could be your anything
'Cos you to me are everything

I'm talking to the mirror at 5am
Waiting for your call in the pouring rain
Sugar coated kiss and a lipstick mark
There are 7 ways of breaking my heart
Wasted conversation and bad TV
Losing our original chemistry
Walking like I'm dancing on priceless art
There are 7 ways of breaking my heart

Turn off the TV girl
We need to talk about the way
'Cos I thought I heard you say
Something 'bout not being there for you
So what do I have to do to show I care for you
I'm saying I could be the one
No more playing girls for fun
Baby let me prove I got just what you need
If you give me half a chance to romance you
'Cos you make me feel complete

'Cos loving you
Is all that I know girl why would I lie
If you want me to
I'll give you just a little more time to decide
If I could be your anything
'Cos you to me are everything

I'm talking to the mirror at 5am
Waiting for your call in the pouring rain
Sugar coated kiss and a lipstick mark
There are 7 ways of breaking my heart
Wasted conversation and bad TV
Losing our original chemistry
Walking like I'm dancing on priceless art
There are 7 ways of breaking my heart

Switch

A couple of nights gone by
She ain't called yet and I don't know why
Could it be I didn't give enough attention
Or was it something I said or didn't mention
Slow down - too damn fast
Bounce with another chick with a fine ass
Not me, got the other girl, on hold
I was on line too she was going all cold

REVIEWS:
x Ex-boybander in somewhat interesting solo record shocker! (...) this is Xenomania doing the Streets, only, instead of a nauseating anthem of monotonous misery for emotionally crippled men to sob into their pints of lager to, it's actually good. With a perfectly understated melancholy and that delicious string refrain; the female vocals hushed and fragile, resignation with a light touch. Abby McDonald

x "7 Ways" enlists the services of Brian Higgins, the Sugababes/Girls Aloud guru who teams his charge with new BMG signee Eve to create a duet of B-boy bravado; simple, naÔve and stupidly catchy in execution. You'll be elephant-juicing in the bathroom mirror before you realise it (try it, you'll see what I mean). Bren O'Callaghan

x Opening with a soft, chiming electro noise, a melancholy beat continues with Abs softly bemoaning a lost love before Eve (not crazy American rapper woman, but a then, new BMG signing who doesnít appear to have reappeared since) joins in with a soft, wilting chorus. It bizarrely reminds me of brilliant dance track 7 Colours by Lost Witness (...). Karinski
