The Song “You Found me” by The Fray, holds the “mirror up to life” in a meaningful way. The song is about the disappointments and let downs that come with life. People search for trust throughout their whole lives, inevitably somewhere down the road trust will be broken whether or not it will be restored is another matter. Trust is important because it gives people someone to rely on and help them out through thick and thin. The song asks a lot “Where were you?,” where was your friend or family member when you needed them most. The song questions friendship, trust, and makes you consider who you can count on.
This song really holds the “mirror up to life” because its something that everyone can relate to. Somewhere along the line we have all been let down. Some say the song might be about suicide and the person wondering where his friends were when he needed them most. Regardless each of us are able to reflect about our past from this song. It brings into question our friendships, and our lives in general. The main question it forces us to ask ourselves is will you help or ignore someone when they are having trouble in life? “Where were you? When everything was falling apart.”
