"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

And 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
