7 Wishes is the third studio album by the band Night Ranger, released in 1985 and produced by Pat Glasser. The album features three Billboard Hot 100 chart hits "Sentimental Street" (#8), "Four In The Morning" (#19) and "Goodbye" (#17).

The title of "Four in the Morning (I Can't Take Anymore)" describes the time of day Jack Blades wrote the song. In an interview with the Songfacts website, he explained, "Literally, I wrote that song at 4 in the morning. I mean, I woke up, and I had an idea, (singing) 'I can't take anymore, I can't fake anymore, it's such a hard time loving you.'"[citation needed]
