"Forgiven" as written by and John Cooper....
Forgive me now cause I
Have been unfaithful
Don't ask me why cause I don't know

So many times I've tried
But was unable
This heart belongs to you alone

Now I'm in our secret place
Alone in your embrace
Where all my wrongs have been erased
You have forgiven

All the promises and lies
All the times I compromise
All the times you were denied
You have forgiven

Forgive me I'm ashamed
I've loved another
I can't explain cause I don't know
No one can take your place
And there is no other
Forever yours and yours alone

Take me to our secret place
(We'll leave the world away)
I get down on my knees
Feel your love wash over me
There will never be another
You're the only one forever
And you know I'm yours alone

    General CommentHm. Im surprised no ones commented on this one yet... anyways.

    I like this song. It seems to have a very straighforward message to me. We do so many thingas that a normal person would hold against us, but God forgives us for our sins.

    When he says Ive loved another, Ive always understood it as He's idolizing something (money ect.) and it's gotten in his way of God.

    When it says Take me to our Secret place, Ive always thought it refered to either his own heart, or just worship in general.

    I really like this song. Easy to understand, but still very Skillet. Im really loving their new album and hope they come out with more like it :D

    MemoryThis song takes me back to the day I came back to Jesus after years running to alcohol or drugs for help with life. God is truly great to us.

    General CommentSo I know that this song is about God. I know that it's about a person sinning and then going back to God.
    But for me, I have come up with another meaning. My boyfriend cheated on me, (I Have been unfaithful) (I've loved another) He asked me for forgiveness, (Forgive me now) He still loves me (But this heart belongs to you alone) And I gave him another chance, (All the promises and lies
    All the times I compromise
    All the times you were denied
    You have forgiven)

    I'm not saying that this is the meaning. I just know that it could be taken that way if you REALLY waned to.
