DAVID ARCHULETA and The Seven-Year Itch

Posted by MT on Saturday, January 10, 2015

calendar

For seven years I’ve been right here
Same house, same job, same chair
Nothing ever changes much
Haha not even my hair

But now and then I get the itch
To grab for something new
I tell myself, ok, it’s time
“What” change is up to you

I usually end quitting a job
Or getting a brand new name
After seven years of the same ‘ole thing
I’m looking to make that change

But though I’m more than ready
To cut something from my life
One thing I know that hasn’t changed
Is the music I know is right

Seven years ago I heard the sound
Of a voice that filled my heart
Seven years ago, I let it in
With no clue at the start

That seven years later I’d still be here
No urge to deviate
Still talking, caring, sharing
Still prepared to wait

Yes, I am prone to the “Seven Year Itch” everyone talks about. Out with the old and in with the new! It really does happen to me. I’ve gotten divorced, once, at the seven year mark, sold and bought houses more than once at the seven year mark, even changed jobs almost always near the seven year mark. It seems I get bored with life and start feeling a strong urge for change.

So, it surprises me that even though I’ve been a fan of David Archuleta for seven years now, I’m having no urge to move on. I’m still as enthralled with his voice as I have ever been, even after a two year hiatus for his mission and almost a year of waiting since his return to see what kind of music he’ll eventually release.

I would have thought I’d have gotten bored by now but it hasn’t happened and it really does surprise me. But, maybe it shouldn’t. Besides the amazing voice, he’s been an enigma from the beginning, totally unpredictable. David is an unusual personality and he continues to surprise me. It may not always be what I’m looking for from him, but I’m certainly never bored!

So here I sit, in the same old chair. Well, actually it’s a new chair and a new computer. But, it’s not a new singer. THAT hasn’t changed at all. I’ve thought about checking out other singers when times were slow, and sometimes I did, but I always end up back here, looking for a song, a snippet, or even a single note from that one special voice.

I’m at that seven year mark right now, in many ways. I just quit a job I’ve had for the last seven years. I’m almost ready to sell my house and move again. I’ve got the itch, bad. But one thing I haven’t even considered is not waiting for David’s new music. No matter how long I have to wait, I’m here. For reasons I can’t even fully explain, my desire to hear that one voice remains steady. Apparently, it has become one of the few things in my life that is not susceptible to the seven year itch.
