Seventy Times 7 (3:31)

Cover of Your Favorite Weapon

From Your Favorite Weapon and 2 other releases

“Seventy Times 7” is the 9th track off the album Your Favorite Weapon by Brand New.

The song title itself comes from a verse in the Holy Bible - Matthew 18:22 - where Jesus tells Peter he must forgive his brother “seventy times seven times” - “Then Peter came and said to him, “Lord, if another member of the church sins against me, how oft should I forgive? As many as seven times?” Jesus said to him, “Not seven times, but, I tell you, seventy times seven times.”.

The song is about a disagreement between Jesse Lacey and childhood friend John Nolan, lead guitarist and co-vocalist of Taking Back Sunday over an ex-girlfriend of Lacey’s. Taking Back Sunday later released “There’s No ‘I’ in Team,” which is their side of the story. Lacey and Nolan are now on good terms again and are well past the issue.

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 beggin' to pull me apart
