About Forgiven

"Forgiven" is the first Christian radio single from Relient K's fifth album, Five Score and Seven Years Ago and it was released just days before the lead single.

This song can be heard on Gotee Records website [1] as of November 28. The band also made the song available via their MySpace on December 1, 2006. The song was about a real-life situation that Matthew Thiessen went through, in which a close friend said some hurtful things, which Thiessen chose to forgive him for. It peaked at #13 on the Hot Christian charts. It was the fourth most played Christian Hit Radio song in 2007 according to R&R magazine. The song is currently Relient K's sixth most popular song on iTunes. The song was also by the compilation album WOW Hits 2008.

Oh yes, I know this tension that you speak of
We're in the palm of a hand making a fist
It'd be best for one of us to speak up
But we prefer to pretend it does not exist

And you can't see past the blood on my hands
To see that you've been aptly damned
To fail and fail again

Cause we're all guilty of the same things
We think the thoughts whether or not we see them through
And I know that I have been forgiven
And I just hope you can forgive me too

So don't you dare blame me for
Prying open the door
That's unleashed the bitterness
That's here in the midst of this
Sometimes we live for no one but ourselves

And what we've been striving for
Has turned into nothing more
Than bodies limp on the floor
Victims of falling short
We kiss goodbye the cheek of our true love
