How to Save a Life
The Fray Lyrics


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
And pray to God he hears you
And I 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

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

"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 I 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

Somewhere along in the bitterness
And I would have stayed up with you all night

Things we should not forget about:


1. The people who care about you (we have at least one person that deeply understands you, I truly believe in you)

2. The possibility of getting better and better (we can't change the past, but we can learn from past experiences)

3. The moment of doing things you really enjoyed (Doing things you like will go positively all the time)

4. The connection from lots of people somewhere (I always feel this intangible feeling with these many people listening to the song)

5. The dream you want to achieve (whatever you do, you'll get everything that you have certain goals to change or obtain)

6. The truth is there are lots of songs that try to give you hopeful messages (that's why we love The Fray music)

7. The reminder that we deserve to have good happenings, emotions, and much more! (we do indeed)


You can do it, time isn't waiting for you but at least you start to try, well begun is half done. And I strongly believe that you can overcome all the difficulties you're going through even though I don't know anything about you... I'm just wishing that we could all be happy and have such joy in life! You're not alone :)

I can’t remember this song being that deep..

me too...

@Valerie Knowles It's actually not. The writer said it was about his experience working with troubled youth. He did write several songs about his relationship with his brother, but this was not one of them.

Jon Harker

If nobody else noticed, their other big single "Over My Head [Cable Car]" is what Valerie Knowles was thinking of. 'Cable Car' was the childhood nickname for Isaac Slade's younger brother Caleb, and they had drifted apart after the latter graduated from high school. After a while without talking to each other, they realised that they had to make amends, and so they fought it out and became friends again.

"And suddenly, I become a part of your past—I'm becoming the part that don't last; I'm losing you and it's effortless…"
