Denver, CO, United States
US alternative rock band
From the sleepy sprawl of America's 'Mile-High City', Denver, Colorado, United States, comes The Fray, a foursome whose melodic pop-rock songs and soaring vocals resonate with sprawling tapestries and tales of hopefulness and heartache. Formed in 2002 by Isaac Slade (vocals, piano) and Joe King (guitar, vocals), The Fray earned a loyal grassroots following through impressive area gigs and the support of local radio which led a listener-driven campaign to get the band a record contract.

This song talks about faith, I think. People who don't believe in God tend to say first, "where was he?" where was he when someone I loved died, where was he when things went wrong, where was he when I was so lost... there are so many questions and so many ways in which people see faith as something incredibly real and physical in the sense that if God is alive then he should appear. It's not like that. Still, this sons applies to that rage of not knowing what is going to happen and knowing that God "wasn't there" supposedly.
