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, 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.
