The Fray - How to Save a Life

 

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,

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.

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.

How to save a life.
