2You Found Me
This song should absolutely obviously be at 1. I mean what is it doing in second position...!? People please please please please please vote! Let the best song win the 1st place dis song is just so cool! It truly rules!
Its a total injustice to the song!
This song shakes you from the inside... Profoundness in the lyrics, awesome vocal work and touching tune! Plus it inculcates an intense feeling in your head. What else do you need Fellas?!?
Incredible song! So emotional and beautiful, it touches your soul! :') It's one of my favourite songs ever!
[Newest]Both this and how to save a life get me every single time.

3Never Say Never
I think this is THE best song by fray.

This song really gets to me and its amazing <3.
And I hate it how justin beiber made a song out of this. I mean dude, it's FRAY not justin beiber
That's the kind of song I love to hear again and again, I just love it and believe me people it's this one that made me a big fan of The Fray...
its...i dont kno wat 2 say bt its close 2 my heart... i wish i cud dedicate it 2 my love...
[Newest]Simply Incredible how it toys with the listener's emotions. My mind goes to so many places while listening to this beautiful song.

4Over My Head
Great song Mike Ponser did a great cover. The fray over my head remix... This should be number 1 deserves to be great vocals
love this song...
Great song! The moving piano melody is fantastic, better than How to Save Life in my opinion.
Beautiful song! Worth to be at number one! I started to listen them after over my head
[Newest]Good song, good video!

5Look After You
A very relatable lyric to relationships especially at young stages but can be tough to hear as the one who it relates to.
It's so hard to pick one song.. I love this band, they got a lot of awesome songs. I'd say "look after you" because the lyrics mean something to me.
I think 'look after you' should be in tie with 'How to save a life' for the first place... the song is just amazing...
[Newest]She gave this to me before leaving!

6Say When
PLease tenth place, what an insult to the song. This is such an uplifting song
Why is this not 1st? It's the best song ever! Not even by them just in the world! It's full of emotion and meaning and the melody goes with the song really well. It should be first what the heck?
Glad to see this song on the top 10 list! : ) I love the lyrics, and Isaac Slade's voice is a-ma-zing! As always, of course ;-)
[Newest]This is an amazing song! It touches the soul!

This song is great and should be higher. Why isn't astray/dead wrong on here?
Seriously, this song is AMAZING! It should be way higher on this list.
Such a great song. I used this after my Bar Mitzvah Montage.


Amazing new song.. It's sound make feel ohhoo.. Feel your heartbeat.
Loving this song! It's so catchy, its on repeat on my itunes! I think it should be higher on the list
I think this song is totally underrated because it's from their new album. This is just as good (or maybe even better) than How to Save A Life and You Found Me. It's SO AWESOME: lyrics, melody, EVERYTHING. On repeat for me too!
[Newest]I feel your heart beat

9Run for Your Life
This is one of the best songs I've listened to in a very long time. I don't understand why it's at 9, it should be the first preference :) this song and all of the songs that the fray write, and sing, have the most thought felt lyrics that I have ever read let alone heard in a very very long time. I love everything about their lyrics. They really speak to you.
Absolutely amazing. This album should've been the MAIN soundtrack for The Hunger Games but this song in particular should've been its theme song. I LOVE it
This song is amazing... Very sad story, but great meaning!
Just like it's raining it should be higher than 9

10Enough for Now
This song just makes me cry every time I hear it. It has raw emotion that is expressed through both the lyrics and the voice of the Singer. It's one of those rare combinations that people just love. If You haven't listened to it. Please Do.
It is an stellar song that deserves much more views and thumbs ups, don't you agree? Come on, VOTE! NOW! PLEASE!
The Fray has so many amazing songs, and this is absolutely one of the top ones, should be ranked higher. The lyrics and the singing's very emotional, it's impossible not to get touched by this song.
[Newest]Such a good song

The Contenders

This is actually the first song that's made me go a lot of people cry over songs and I'm completely untouched, but this song somehow really gets me. I don't know if it's the tune or the meaning or both, but wow, what a song!
Are you kidding me. This is such an amazing song should be way above in the list. Amazing guitar work and heartfelt lyrics. In the night I hear 'em talk, the coldest story ever told
'Somewhere far along this road he lost his soul
To a woman so heartless'
It is not theirs, but is created for them! They play it with so much sense... Very moving!
[Newest]Not as good as how to save... Or you found me.. But definitely better than 12th rank

12She Is
I love this song. Probably not my favorite of The Fray but it deserves to be higer than where it is - that's why I'm voting!
This is the best of the fray songs! I love it...
This song really gets to me and puts me in a good mood because whenever I listen to it I think of my crush/girlfriend
[Newest]This is a great song deserves more than a 14 ranking.

13Rainy Zurich
DAMN! This should be much higher on the list... Tis song absolutely blew me away... Best of isaac slade, best of the fray? Why not
This is the best of the fray Really the best. Guys lets take t to number 1
Takes me to Zurich every single time!
[Newest]Let your ear prove it

14Love Don't Die
I have to admit this isn't my favorite song, but if I actually tried to pick one out of all these absolutely beautiful MASTERPIECES I just know my head will EXPLODE =P So I'm gonna settle for voting for one that I think should be higher on the list.
This song deserves a better place, it is very catchy, and surprisingly badass for a fray song.
An amazing song! Should be in the top ten, makes you feel so happy.
[Newest]Should be number one

15All At Once
"Sometimes the hardest thing and the right thing are the same" this phrase is just amazing!
"And all at once the crowd begins to sing... Sometimes the hardest thing and the right thing are the same"
This song should definitely be in the top 10.

16The Fighter
The lover held her love
She begged him not to go
She unwrapped his gloves
The lover said I know, I know, I know
Kissed his trembling lips
She touched his fingertips
But somehow they both know
He's not coming home, coming home

Heartbreaking, full of emotion. Yet absolutely catchy and amazing.
I think that this is a really good song. It has good lyrics and good music, and everything goes really well together. It's fast becoming one of my favourite songs from The Fray. Top three, at least.
Musically and lyrically, this song is incredible. The level of emotion that exists both in the storyline is like that of a journey over a lifetime. Captivating.
[Newest]The song is actually so amazing. the meaning of the lyrics is so heartbreaking. I literally can't get it off repeat. It's a song I don't think I will every forget

17Be Still
This song is absolutely amazing and the lyrics are just WOW. This song is by far my favourite song sung by The Fray.
This song is definitely gonna be the song I'll be listening to when I'm going far far away from my boyfriend to never see him again 10 months later and it makes me cry each time I listen to it.
Love this song because has a deep meaning. Keep the faith that no matter what God will be there for us
[Newest]There's something about this song that gives you the peace you are looking for

This song means a lot to me, it describes how I feel. Everyday I think that "there's really no way to reach me", I'm so far and so different from the others. I love it 'cause I feel comforted by its words and by its soft music. I hope it will be the first, one day
I like very much...
Because the story of the told how they end of in seperate ways...
Brings tears to my eyes every time I listen to it. Great band.
[Newest]You can not leave this song!

I am absolutely astonished this song isn't the very first one. The lyrics are indescribably. "Happiness damn near destroys you, breaks your faith to pieces on the floor. So you tell yourself, 'that's enough for now. ' Happiness has a violent roar. " The statement the song makes is one almost never described that I've heard of, it's so incredibly unique but true. "Happiness feels a lot like sorrow. " Also, you can literally feel Isaac's voice, you can almost touch it. The sound of it takes my breath away. Every line is flawless. Please, someone agree with me. This song is breathtaking, legendary.
This song is lyrically beautiful. The meaning is very deep and the chorus near the end potentially takes one's breath away into the melody.
This should be higher

20Fair Fight

21Ungodly Hour
I don't know how I missed this track when I first heard the album but this song made me fall in love with The Fray all over again, The emotion and the expression in this song is mind blowing, I cry every time listening to this and it purges my soul! Definitely should be in the top ten!
If you haven't listened to this you ain't a true fray fanatic.. The vocals, the music everything makes you go wow!
Absolutely love this song. The lyrics mean everything! This should definitely be higher on the list. It's truly a beautiful song that should get more credit.

22Where The Story Ends
How come this song is only at 22nd place? It's so deep and thoughtful. There are more possible interpretations to this song, but personally I like to look at it as a song about two people who want to connect and bond, but are finding it difficult to do so. Especially the woman, who will leave her parental house in order to leave with her husband/boyfriend, but is she actually ready to do so?
It could also be about Living Apart Together, but now taking the next step even though they are going through tough times ocassionally.

Overall, a great song and it should definitely end up higher in the list!
This is probably one of the most underrated songs by the Fray. The pure emotion and how great the melody is should definitely put this in the top 3!
This is a great song and this should be 1 no joke
[Newest]This song is incredible! How is this not in the top ten!?

This is by far one of the best songs of the fray, everything about it is perfect the music the lyrics I can't believe this is not in the top 5! Absolutely astonishing...
Amazing song. I can not believe this song is so low in the rankings.
WHAT? Why is this at 26? This is as awesome as heaven! God!

24Little House
This is by far my favorite song by them. It has an amazing piano part that I have wanted to learn forever. It may be short, but it has amazing vocals and the music is amazing. I am in love with it. For a while Heaven Forbid was my favorite song, but when I heard this I fell in love.
It may be short but its one of those hidden songs that make you feel glad you heard it. at seems one of those songs on an able that is a hidden gem that most people ignore, but it really is beautiful. This song is my ringtone, that's how much I love it, and the music is the best part and the lyrics just ties it all together.
I really wish that this song had more listeners so people could see how incredible it is. I can really relate to the lyrics and I think it's beautiful. If you are reading this just look this song up and give it a chance, please.
[Newest]Great voice, piano and guitar love it


26Break Your Plans

There is something really breathtaking to this song. The meaning is very deep and the instrumentals are amazing, simply put.

29Here We Are

30Be the One
Come on people! This song has been on replay ever since I heard it and it's just one of those songs you you can never get tired of listening to! I especially love the part where he sings "What if I knew how to tell, what would I say? What if I knew how to yell, what would I pray? " This needs to be at least in the top 10!
It hurts me that this is at the back of the list. The first time I heard this song I wept like a baby! His voice is so beautiful and the lyrics are so strong, I just don't understand why it's 28! Help me get this up there, guys!
THIS IS THE BEST BEST BEST SONG BY THEM. The lyrics are beautiful and his voice is as if you can feel it echoing inside you. Beautiful melody and this song is absolute perfection.

I love this song. It deserves so much more recognition
What this should be top 10
Is the best sonngg of the fray

32Heaven Forbid
I listened to this song for two weeks straight. There's something extremely special about it.
This song should have been a single. It's just that good
God jop joe king

This song was constructed beautifully <3 it's so absolutely breathtaking. The notes, so low, so melodious, are intertwined in a way that leaves me absolutely speechless. Then his voice in the chorus, so damn high and never cracking. Ever so fantastic. I cannot put into words just how much I adore this Heaven-sent song <3 <3 It should be number 1 on every song list ever made, starting with this one! <3 LOVE IT!
The instruments, especially the strings, take your breath away. The song itself is a trip, a journey, an adventure, beginning with and continues even unto the end a tone and tune staying on the positive side, no matter how intensely it grows.
This song is an incredible journey all packed into a song. It begins with a happy tone, growing into intensity without ever losing the theme. The strings, the minor notes, and the instruments altogether concoct a breathtaking melody.
[Newest]I love this song. His voice is amazing - this song shows what a fantastic band the Fray is. I think there is no way to fully explain the awesomeness of Munich.
