Where did I go wrong?

this is about how the song 'How to save a life' ( The Fray ) has a meaning to me, its not go the happiest reasons but its a song that's really special to me


2. The Meaning.

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

this first verse reminds me off when I told Tegan about my depression, my thoughts and self-harm, as soon as I sent her the message I was having second thoughts about telling her, but I knew I needed to tell someone, after sending with I was 'between the lines of fear and blame', fear that she would react badly to this information and never speak to me again and I was also blaming myself for what is happening in my life right now.

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

this verse makes me think about the people I have pushed away ' somewhere along in the bitterness' the bitterness being my emotions and losing my friends.

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
Pray to God, he hears you
And I pray to God, he hears you

this verse has a slight relation to my dad, when I tell him I'm feeling bad and not upto dealing with people and life he tries his hardest to know what to do, but I try to ' let him know that I know best' because I like to be alone when this all happens even though its really bad to hide and run from my emotions. ' try to slip past his defense' this is like my self harming or when I cry I don't let him realise.  I do 'lay down a list of what is wrong' but it just makes me more upset really, listing all my flaws all the reasons I'm not good enough.

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

this verse I see as my emotions are the 'he', because when I am trying to hide my emotions, he (,y emotions0 gets louder so its harder for me to ignore them and as I break down starting to cry.  Realising my emotions are too strong for me I let him take me over and I cry and cry until I can't cry anymore 'until I lose the road', then I have to 'admit to everything' that I might never not feel this way .

thats all the verses and that's my meanings in the song and I do think its a very powerful song with lots of different meanings, it also means a lot to people.
