"Seventy Times Seven" as written by and David/vannelli Meece....
This prison has no walls
This bondage has no chains
My memories have no mercy
There's no one left to blame
Wish I could force back
The hands of time
And right every wrong
Grant me just this one last chance
Before it's gone, gone, gone
How could I be so blind as to doubt your love?
How could I go on living without your love?
Seventy times seven
Will you forgive me for all that I've done
Seventy times seven
I'm so afraid of what I've become
For all the promises laid to waste
For all the seeds unsown
For all the justice I never faced
I must now atone
Is there a soul that can't be saved
Is there a heart that has no hope
Is there a peace that can still be made
Please say it's so
How could I be so blind as to doubt your love?
How could I go on living without your love?
Seventy times seven
Will you forgive me for all that I've done
Seventy times seven
I'm so afraid of the man I've become
Seventy times seven
Will you forgive me for all that I've done
Seventy times seven
Your love can save me from what I've become
Seventy times seven

    General CommentThis is about the lead singers girlfriend who went with the lead singer of Taking Back Sunday (Adam Lazzara), while they were together. "Theres no "I" in team" is also a song by TBS about this whole ordeal.

    General Commentreading the Bible right now for class so here goes:

    Then Peter came to him and asked, 'Lord, how often am I to forgive me brother if he goes on wronging me? As many as seven times?' Jesus replied, 'I do not say seven times but seventy times seven.' (Matthew 18:20-21)

    Song is pretty clearly about mercy from friends as well as self-forigveness.

    General CommentThese lyrics are completely wrong. These aren't Brand New's lyrics. So if you want the actual lyrics, which are nothing like these, go to Seventy Times 7, with the number 7 instead of seven. Good song.
