Things I’m Loving… The Fray

I’ve been listening to a lot of music from a few years a go this week. It seems to resonate with me more than current music on the radio.

The Fray has been played in my car and on my iPod. I love their first album How To Save a Life as listening to it right now it has different meanings than it did when it first came out. It’s like the lyrics could be my thoughts, but in a way that makes sense.

From Over My Head:

“I never knew
I never knew that everything was falling through
That everyone I knew was waiting on a queue
To turn and run when all I needed was the truth
But that’s how it’s got to be
It’s coming down to nothing more than apathy
I’d rather run the other way than stay and see
The smoke and who’s still standing when it clears

Everyone knows I’m in
Over my head”

From 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”

From Fall Away:

“You left something undone, it’s now your rerun
It’s the one you can’t erase
You should have made it right, so you wouldn’t have to fight
To put a smile back on your face

You fall away from your past
But it’s following you
You fall away”

From Heaven Forbid:

“Twenty years, it’s breaking you down
now that you understand there’s no one around
Take a breath, just take a seat
you’re falling apart and tearing at the seams

Heaven forbid you end up alone, you don’t know why
Hold on tight, wait for tomorrow, you’ll be alright”

From Dead Wrong:

“I’m doing the best that I could.
Trying my best to be understood
Maybe I’m changing slowly
I get out, turn around if only I…

Knew I was dead wrong all along
You said it for my sake
that I would not lose my way
When I was dead wrong all along

Mine is not a new story
Mine is not a new story
Mine is nothing new
But it is for me”

It’s funny how the meanings of songs can change over the years. I loved this album when it first came out and now I love it all over again.
