Denver, CO, United States
US alternative rock band
Formed in 2002 from America's 'Mile-High City' of Denver, Colorado is the American rock band The Fray. Started by schoolmates Isaac Slade (vocals, piano) and Joe King (guitar, vocals), this melodic pop-rock foursome are famed for their songs and soaring vocals resonating of tales of hopefulness and sprawling tapestries of heartache. They gained loyal grassroots fans with a listener-driven campaign for a record deal and followed this with the release of their debut album How to Save a Life in 2005.This went double platinum and they achieved national success with "Over My Head (Cable Car)" their first single and have grown steadily since.
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.
