"Stay Away" as written by and Robert Schwartzman....
Stay away from my friends
They're smooth operators
Looking for a way in
Stay away from me tonight
I've made other plans
And you'll just be distracting me in a good way
She doesn't know that I love her
Yes, I love her
Make a move on me, baby
I can't be the one who's always taking chances
See me down so you get down
No, you've got me all wrong
I just want to kiss your lips
And you kiss back
Leave us alone
Your friends and my friends should go far away

    General Commentok i love this song cause it showed me who i really loved. i was at a rooney show with 2 girls i liked. one i liked more than the other cause i had worked with her more but i also had some interest in the other girl. this song came on and i was really confused cause i liked both girls! by the end of the night i realized that i was in love with "the other girl" and we are still going out !!! i love her, yes i love her!

    General CommentThis song reminds me of this guy that I liked and he never ever told me how he felt because he was worried what other people would think. And when he did, we had to conduct our relationship away from our friends, because we're like complete opposites.

    Leave us alone
    your friends
    and my friends
    should go
    far away

    General CommentI absolutely love this song. Whenever it hits the chorus of "she doesn't know that I love her", I always feel like I'm flying. The music just soars through it.
    I definately relate with this one too... it's an easy one to identify with.

    General CommentHeh, I can relate to this song. But like live:evil stated, I think everyone experiences this.

    IMO, I think there can be two meanings to the song:

    1) Obviously, he wants to be completely secluded with this girl that he loves. Though, she doesn't know that he loves her. He's directly stating to leave the duo alone. ("Stay away" and "Leave us alone, your friends and my friends..)

    2) He could be singing about how he'd like to hide their relationship from their friends. Some people believe such a thing can make it all the more intimate and personal.

    General Commentafter reading all these interpretations, i reckon mine was pretty wrong...

    the first few lines seemed to be telling a girl to stay away from his friends because they were 'smooth operators' and he was afraid she would be more interested in them than in him, but this doesn't really fit that well with the rest of the song.

    General CommentI think that what he's saying is that he's in love with her, but she has no clue and that she always seems to go for his friends, so he doesn't want her around them because he knows they'll just use her. And I think she only see's him as a friend. And he wishes that he could just get rid of all of their friends so they can be together alone until she also realizes the he loves her, and hopefully she'd feel the same.
