How to Save a Life – The Fray

Step one you say we need to talk
He walks you say sit down it’s just a talk
He smiles politely back at you
You stare politely right on through
Some sort of window to your right
As he goes left and you stay right
Between the lines of fear and blame
And you begin to wonder why you came

Where did I go wrong, I lost a friend
Somewhere along in the bitterness
And I would have stayed up with you all night
Had I known how to save a life

Let him know that you know best
Cause after all you do know best
Try to slip past his defense
Without granting innocence
Lay down a list of what is wrong
The things you’ve told him all along
And pray to God he hears you
And pray to God he hears you

Where did I go wrong, I lost a friend
Somewhere along in the bitterness
And I would have stayed up with you all night
Had I known how to save a life

As he begins to raise his voice
You lower yours and grant him one last choice
Drive until you lose the road
Or break with the ones you’ve followed
He will do one of two things
He will admit to everything
Or he’ll say he’s just not the same
And you’ll begin to wonder why you came

Where did I go wrong, I lost a friend
Somewhere along in the bitterness
And I would have stayed up with you all night
Had I known how to save a life

Where did I go wrong, I lost a friend
Somewhere along in the bitterness
And I would have stayed up with you all night
Had I known how to save a life

How to save a life
How to save a life

Where did I go wrong, I lost a friend
Somewhere along in the bitterness
And I would have stayed up with you all night
Had I known how to save a life

Where did I go wrong, I lost a friend
Somewhere along in the bitterness
And I would have stayed up with you all night
Had I known how to save a life

How to save a life

Stayz, salamat. Love this song.Β =) I’ve changed my mind about playing Basket Case when I learn how to play drums: this will be the first song I’d like to play.

  2. Michiko Said:

    Hahah. Ayan! Tatlo na tayo. Hehe. Sino kaya pwede magturo saten ng libre? πŸ˜› :))

  3. KV Said:

    Hehehe, oo nga eh. Wala naman kasi akong time mag-lessons sa Yamaha diba? :p And I think I’d rather learn from a drummer na talaga. Game! Dun natin pwede ilabas lahat ng angst natin! :p Haha! πŸ™‚

  4. Michiko Said:

    Hahaha. Apir! Basket Case is so full of energy; this song, however, is longer. It runs for 7 minutes and 14 seconds looong. Not that I mind. =)
