Song: How To Save A Life

Band: The Fray

Album :  How To Save A Life (2005)

For full lyrics Click Here.

Ever been stuck in a situation where you know you cant help it, change the situation, or are plainly trying to help someone who does not want to be helped.  And then ever been stuck with the guilt of having given up, then this is the song. “And I would have stayed up with you all night, had I known how to save a life” brilliant lyrics. This is the song I listen to even today when I am stuck in such a situation. Infact I start humming it when I know the situation is impossible. There is only so much you can strtch yourself and so much you can do. Beyond that , well you go where ever life takes you.
