Seventy Times Seven Lyrics - Brand New

Review The Song (22)



Back in school they never taught us
what we needed to know
Like how to deal with despair
or someone breakin your heart
For twelve years I've held it all together
but a night like this is just beggin to pull me apart
I played it quiet left you deep in conversation
I felt uncool and hung out around the kitchen
I remember I kept thinking
that I know you never would
And now I know I want to kill you
like only a best friend could

Everyone's caught on to everything you do
Everyone's caught on to...

As if it happening wasn't enough
I got to go and write a song
sponsored links
just to remind myself how bad it sucked
Ignore the sun, covers over my head
Wrote a message on my pillow that says
"Jesse, stay asleep in bed"
don't apologize (I hope you choke and die!)
Search your cell for something which to hang yourself
They say you need to pray
if you want to go to heaven
But they don't tell you what to say
when your whole life is going to Hell!

Everyone's caught on to everything you do
Everyone's caught on to...
Everyone's caught on to
(and I can't let you let me down again)
everything you do
Everyone's caught on to...
(and I can't let you let me down again)

So is that what you call a getaway?
Well tell me what you got away with
Cause I've seen more spine on jellyfish
I've seen more guts in eleven-year-old kids
Have another drink and drive yourself home
I hope there's ice on all the roads
And you can think of me when you forget your seatbelt
then again when your head goes through the windshield

Is that what you call tact?
You're as subtle as a brick in the small of my back
So let's end this call and end this conversation
And is that what you call a getaway?
Tell me what you got away with
Cause you left the frays from the ties you severed
when you say "best friends" means friends forever

Is that what you call a getaway?
Well tell me what you got away with
Cause I've seen more spine on jellyfish
I've seen more guts in eleven-year-old kids
Have another drink and drive yourself home
I hope there's ice on all the roads
And you can think of me when you forget your seatbelt
then again when your head goes through the windshield

(I can't let you let me down again)
Everyone's caught on to everything you do
(and I can't let you let me down again)
Everyone's caught on to...
(I can't let you let me down again)
Everyone's caught on to everything you do
(and I can't let you let me down again)
Everyone's caught on to...

The Actual Song not Heresay Drama | Reviewer: Anonymous | 1/7/10

The name 70x7 is synonymous with God's eternal forgiveness. Matthew 18:21-22 in the new King James version of the Bible reads: Then Peter came to Him and said, "Lord, how often shall my brother sin against me, and I forgive him? Up to seven times?" Jesus said to him, "I do not say to you, up to seven times, but up to seventy times seven."
Jesus isn't telling us to forgive our brothers 490 times, or 70 times, or 77 times. He's telling us we should always forgive our brothers when they have sinned against us. God in heaven has forgiven us all of humanity's sins. How wrong it would be for us to deny our brothers and sisters a similar forgiveness for much lesser matters.

http://www.70x7.com/70x7meaning.htm



In the Bible, the number "7" symbolises completeness or a finished work, while the number "70" signifies 'perfect spiritual order carried out with all spiritual power and significance' (Bullinger, 1921, p.235). Therefore, 490, being the product of 70 x 7, signifies spiritual perfection of perfect order and completeness.
Peter asked Jesus how often he should forgive someone and eagerly offered an answer to his own question. He thought that forgiving completely would suffice. But Jesus responded by saying that it wasn't good enough to just forgive completely but to forgive to the point of spiritual perfection!

everyone:

adam from TBS had sex with jesse lacey's girlfriend wayyy back in the day when they were best friends in the same band. the friendship that adam and jesse had then ended, and in a phone conversation, jesse said to adam, "you're a subtle as a brick on the small of my back, so let's end this call, and end this conversation." there's no "i" in team is adam's comeback to seventy times seven.

after all of this bullshit, to my knowledge, jesse and adam are ok with each other. they aren't friends, but they don't hate each other. word is that they've toured together. hope that clears everything up for everyone. reading all this incorrect interpretations is getting pretty annoying.

jesse lacey is completely amazing and this song is the greatest song ever. i didnt even know the story behind this song and now that i do i love it a million times more, jesse is genius.

i love you brand new<3

I think the reason that Jesse sang that one part towards the end in a hushed voice is because they're the harshest lyrics in this song. No matter if he screams them or if he whispers them, they'll still have a huge impact.

I just read the lyrics of There's No "I" In Team for the first time, and some of the words are from other songs by Brand New, such as Mix Tape, Soco Amaretto Lime, and of course, Seventy Times Seven.

This song is pretty awesome. Jesse's amazing with words, and his voice is so powerful. Lovee Brand New :).

Its about the original guitarist of Taking Back Sunday, John Nolan, and Jesse Lacey. John slept with Jesse's fiance at the time and this is how he felt about it. If you listen to There's No "I" in Team, by Taking Back Sunday, you'll definitely see the similarities, it's their response to this song



correction | Reviewer: Anonymous | 1/9/08

actually although it is from the Bible the other post got it a little messed up. its from Mather 18:21-22. saying that how many times should you forgive someone and Jesus said not 7 times but 77 times. i believe it means that adam or john did something unforgivable (slept with his girlfriend so i heard) and jesse will never forgive him



lyrics | Reviewer: justin | 6/19/07

i love how harsh jesse's lyrics are, and how he says them so soft but they really do some hurtin



shutup | Reviewer: Anna | 4/3/07

ok this is just a great song.
you're all ruining it by thinking about the history and analyzing it.

just appreciate the song cause its awesome.
kthanksbye.



TBS VS BR& NEW | Reviewer: Adam | 3/17/07

This song is one of the best songs by Brand New. I like how No "I" in team and Seventy times Seven mix. If you listen hard enough while Adam is yelling " that's right he said it." you can hear "Have a drink another and drive yourself home, I hope there's ice on all the roads so you can think of me when you forget your seatbelt and again when your head goes through the windshield." I'm a Taking Back Sunday fan but i gotta say this song is probably my favorite.
