The Fray - How To Save A Life

According to lead singer and songwriter Isaac Slade, the song was composed and influenced by his experience while working as a mentor at a camp for troubled teens:
"One of the kids I was paired up with was a musician. Here I was, a protected suburbanite, and he was just 17 and had all these problems. And no one could write a manual on how to save him." -Isaac Slade (, 2007)

The video had fascinated me, with the lyrics and the numbers that shows what you can do to save a life; from listening, caring, forgiving, loving etc.
The song lyrics is so deep and sad, the video had captured sad moments too as crying children who were sad or abused from their life's problems.

Strong words, simple video, yet effective.
