Song lyrics
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,
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.
Pray to god he hears you.
And I pray to god he hears you and,

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.

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.
How to save a life.
How to save a life.

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.

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.
How to save a life.
How to save a life.

I really hate this song because it has been used in "Grey's" soundtrack. I prefer "You & Me" by Lifehouse, or "You Found Me" by this band.

The first time I heard this song again was on a video about drunk drivers. I remembered the song, and I loved it. I really tells how people feel sometimes when they don't know how to help their friends, after trying to talk to them about what they were doing to (not only themselves), but people around them. I love this song, and always will.

I just heard this song on the radio a couple weeks ago and i hate this song. It reminds me of how my GF commited suicide and i didn't notice anything. It's killed me on the inside, but this song just makes me feel even worse, yet i can't stop listening to it. And ffs i can't believe a song like this is on a stupid show like greys anatomy, what a mockery of what this song's message is.

I used to like this song, but since it is so over-played I don't like it anymore.
