• Chris August - 7x70 Lyrics

    From the album No Far Away

    I've been living in this house here
    Since the day that I was born
    These walls have seen me happy
    But most of all they've seen me torn
    They have heard the screaming matches
    That made a family fall apart
    They've had a front row seat for the breaking of my heart

    Seven times seventy times
    I'll do what it takes to make it right
    I thought the pain was here to stay
    But forgiveness made a way
    Seven times seventy times
    There's healing in the air tonight
    I'm reaching up to pull it down
    Gonna wrap it all around

    I remember running down the hallway playing hide and seek
    I didn't know that I was searching for someone to notice me
    I felt alone and undiscovered
    And old enough to understand
    Just when I'm supposed to be learning to love
    You let me down again


    I lost count of the ways you let me down
    But no matter how many times you weren't around
    I'm alright now…cause
    God picked up my heart and helped me through
    And shined light on the one thing left to do
    And that's forgive you, I forgive you


    I've been living in this house here since the day that I was born
