Post a Comment. This song is about the experience of the lead Singer of the band Isaac Slade as a mentor in a camp of troubled teens in Denver, called Shelterwood. One of his friends was the head teacher there, and he spent there a week. There, he was the mentor of a years-old, who told him his story. He was addicted to a lot of different drugs and alcohol, in recovery. His story was shocking, according to Isaac. He told him that there were a lot of people who tried to help him, save him.
The title track, "how to save a life," was inspired by slade's experience as a mentor to a crack addicted teen. He was a recovering addict, coming out of a really tough teenage life. Thankfully, he was on his way out of that life, so he was able to really look back with some objectivity. The song is more of a memoir about his slow motion descent and all the relationships he lost along the way. I constantly get emails from people who relate to it.
