How To Save A Life - The Fray


A escolha de The Fray hoje e de David Guetta para amanhã é totalmente proposital. Essas escolhas servirão como base para a afirmação que fiz no meu primeiro post, onde disse que Snow Patrol é como um The Fray e não música de balada como é David Guetta.

Mas falando dessa música em questão é impossível não ouvir ou melhor ver o clip dessa música ou qualquer outra do Fray e não lembrar de Coldplay. Estilos de músicas idênticas, vocalistas idênticos e com vozes parecidas.

Mas mesmo com tudo isso The Fray tem um charme e essa música representa um pouco disso. Com um ritmo consistente e uma letra bonita. Ela agrada as pessoas que gostam desse estilo de música.

Avaliação: ****

Letra:

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
