The Fray – How To Save A Life

theFrayEsta banda de Denver le debe todo su éxito a dos cosas: su piano y la excelente banda sonora de la serie Anatomía de Grey. Con su How to save a life pasaron del más completo anonimato a ser una de las melodías más pinchadas en radios, spots, …

El álbum homónimo tiene un buen puñado de grandes canciones. No se puede decir lo mismo de su último disco (The Fray, 2009), del que apenas se ha oído nada. Cómo salvar una vida es emotiva. Pone los pelillos de punta. Igual que me los ha puesto el programa que ha dedicado Jokin a este blog en Itzali Telebista. Mila esker Jokin!


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


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
