Artist: The Fray
Album: 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
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

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

The Fray How to Save a Life

The Fray 
“How to Save a Life” 
Dir. Mark Pellington 

Take three minutes of “The Blair Witch Project,” change the soundtrack to a catchy but repetitive pop song, and you’ve got something that resembles the Fray’s new video for “How to Save a Life.” The video, which seems to be about the death of the lead singer’s friend whom he wishes he could have saved, would be genuinely emotional if not for its overwhelmingly flat aesthetics. The dull tones of the suburban setting, the harsh industrial lighting, and the astoundingly homely cast effectively make the video dark and disturbing rather than moving. 

The video’s focus is a car headlight that shines through the woods encountering people in distress, but the search seems more like a deer hunt than a rescue. “How to Save a Life” suggests that the video will provide a tutorial in rescues; in reality, the title is blatantly misleading because no one is saved. In fact, people are dying all over the place. The lead singer, rather than doing any life-saving, just sits at his piano lamenting his inactivity. “How to Lose a Life” would be more appropriate. 

Time is distorted throughout the video in a vain attempt to imbue lame visuals with significance. An awkward couple hooks up on a couch and a droplet of water falls from a faucet first forward and then backward. This convoluted series of events is intended to signify the singer’s retrospection, but instead just comes off as confusing. 

The stark contrast of bright spotlights and dark shadows makes it difficult to see any of the artists’ faces. The already boring act of watching the musicians play is even more boring than it should be because all you have to look at is the shadow of their figures. 

Listening to “How to Save a Life” makes me envision sexy rock-stars passionately professing their willingness to catch me when I fall while strumming the guitar and playing the piano. 

Watching the music video is entirely disillusioning. The song used to make me feel warm and fuzzy—now I’m just creeped out.
