"Stage" as written by Edward Joel Kowalczyk, Chad David Taylor, Patrick Dahlheimer and Chad Alan Gracey....
I want to feel
I want to try
I want to rock in the city tonight
I want to deal

Don't want to die
I want to bring my captain hook into the light
People I've seen my day
Ranting and raving this beauty away

We are by and large the same
But words are too feeble they cannot contain
He was a rock and roll messiah
She was known for her child care

The truth is gonna give up the world
If you can give up the stage
If I can give up the stage
If we can give up the stage

Come to this, I can't come to you
Don't do this, wake me up tonight
Come to this, I can't come to you
Don't do this, wake me up tonight

    General CommentThis feels like a semi-hedonistic song, about being somewhere in your life that makes you seem more alive than the people who are 'ranting and raving this beauty away', a place that, once you find it, you can't leave.
    try listening to U2's "gone" it gives me the same impression

    General CommentMaybe I'm wrong.... it sounds like he is a rock star, she is his housewife. She wants him to come home to her, he wants her to come to the show or something. The stage may be some rocky part of their marriage or the stage where they argue things out. Just a thought.

    General CommentI am pretty sure he isn't singing "I want to deal." I think the lyrics actually are:
    "I wanna be young,
    don't wanna die,
    I wanna bring my Captain Hook into the light."

    That is a clear reference to Peter Pan.
