Transcript of HOW TO SAVE A LIFE

The theme of this song is LOVE and HEARTBREAK.
THEME
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.
CHORUS
LITERARY DEVICE: CONFLICT
POETIC TECHNIQUE
VERSE ONE
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
The literary device shows the conflict between the two main characters of the story, as their relationship is no longer happy. It also shows the conflict of the main character's head, in their uncertainty.
1. "Drive until you lose the road, or break the ones you've followed.

2. "Some sort of window to your right...Between the lines of fear and blame."

HOW TO SAVE A LIFE
BY: THE FRAY

The effectiveness of the rhyme scheme is that it aids in the fluidity of the story of the song. It also helps the listeners understand and predict the next part of the song and makes it easier to sing along. It helps the song be easy to listen to and simple yet poetic all the same.
EFFECTIVENESS
1. Metaphor for all of the paths they have chosen to take in their relationship, and how they want to break the paths they have followed.

2. Imagery; gives us a visual of how close they are between fear and blame. Gives us an image of their relationship, and how one of them wants an "out" from it all.
Explanations
EFFECTIVENESS
The literary device helps listeners to relate to the story of the song, and expands the complexity of the song
THIRD VERSE
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've came
The theme is further explained by the conflict of the song.
