Music, give me more music, baby!

Who is The Fray? It sounds odd as a band name but the only song I heard from them is really nice! The title is How To Save a Life. It has a nice tune and the words are meaningful. I like the part where Isaac Slade, the lead vocalist, (and pianist, too!) sings:

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


This is the chorus part actually. =) Anyway, it is ‘bitterness’ in the lyrics but when I tried to catch the word, it did not sound like ‘bitterness’ at all! I wonder if the lyrics are correct or if my hearing is wrong and I might need to dig my ears more often.

What is ‘the fray’? I checked my dictionary and found the meaning for the fray.

Meaning: a fight, a contest or an argument; an exciting or challenging activity.

How to Save a Life sounds like a song written from experience. If it is, then it’s very interesting. I like songs based on real experiences. It makes me feel close to the song especially if I can relate to it and have gone through similar experiences.

Another song, which I really love is Iris by Goo Goo Dolls. Their version is way better than ex-Boyzone main singer, Ronan Keating! Mr. Keating was screeching horrendously at the chorus. He’s better off singing When You Say Nothing at All. =)

By the way, enjoy Iris!

Iris

And I'd give up forever to touch you
Cause I know that you feel me somehow
You're the closest to heaven that I'll ever be
And I don't want to go home right now

And all I can taste is this moment
And all I can breathe is your life
Cause sooner or later it's over
I just don't want to miss you tonight

Chorus
And I don't want the world to see me
Cause I don't think that they'd understand
When everything's made to be broken
I just want you to know who I am

And you can't fight the tears that ain't coming
Or the moment of truth in your lies
When everything seems like the movies
Yeah you bleed just to know your alive

Chorus
And I don't want the world to see me
Cause I don't think that they'd understand
When everything's made to be broken
I just want you to know who I am

Chorus
I don't want the world to see me
Cause I don't think that they'd understand
When everything's made to be broken
I just want you to know who I am

I just want you to know who I am
I just want you to know who I am
I just want you to know who I am
I just want you to know who I am
