Something about the lyrics....

I know I may get some "WHAT!!!" comments by saying this...but I actually love watching the show Grey's Anatomy. It's all about the romance, I gotta admit...since they don't really show much about the saving lives part (unlike ER).

Perhaps it is not all about the romance, it is also all about life. I admit I love to analyse (over-analyse, hubby thinks) emotions, our pyschological makeup etc.

So, why did I bring this up? Mainly becuase I have been seeing the song clip (if that is what t is called) of the closing of the previous season and I didn't like the song. The singer really just mumbles some mumbo-jumbo and the tune is all dull.

BUT...I loved the little scenes that were shown together with the clip. So, decided to YouTube it and search for the lyrics as well. AND surprisingly.....the lyrics are really meaningful.

I still hate the tune though...

"How To Save A Life" (The Fray)

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
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

It's REALLY all about LIFE in the end.....
