Quote #4

I know, two quotes in a day.  That’s okay though.  I really like what this one can imply (besides the fact that I really do not like to run).

“The trouble with jogging is that, by the time you realize you’re not in shape for it, it’s too far to walk back.”

Quote #3 – How to Save a Life

The Fray says this song is open to interpretation so I am going to take them up on the offer.  How to Save a Life is one of my favorite songs and I find that its words can be applicable to many situations.  In light of recent occurrences with some people I care deeply about, I think it may be appropriate.

The Fray – How to Save a Life

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
And 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
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

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 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

Was it right?

How do you know if it was the right thing to happen?  It would have happened at some point.  I didn’t say it, but it had the same effect.  I’m all mixed up about it…
