How To Save a Life

Capo on 3rd fret
	  		  
Std Tuning  
  
G                    D/F#     
Step one you say we need to talk  
   Em                  D/F#             G  
He walks you say sit down it?s just a talk  
             D/F#          Em  
He smiles politely back at you  
             D/F#               G  
You stare politely right on through  
               D/F#          Em  
Some sort of window to your right  
            D/F#               G  
As he goes left and you stay right  
             D/F#             Em  
Between the lines of fear and blame  
                  D/F#         
And you begin to wonder why you came  
  
  C             D                Em  
Where did I go wrong, I lost a friend  
            G             D/F#  
Somewhere along in the bitterness  
    C                   D                Em  
And I would have stayed up with you all night  
             G     D/F#    G 
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  
  
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?ll 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
