49 hours and 46 minutes to go
But who's counting, i just thought
I'd let you know
I've filled my head with your voice.
And now I'm drowning,
When I wrote this song for you.

You can stay tonight,
And make everything alright.
You can hold me down,
And tell me that you're right.
Tell me what it's like to be alone.

And we have this down,
Unlike everybody.
Well I'd spend a million nights
Just like tonight, you know
I scream your name at the sky,
Until I lost my voice.
Would I give my life for you?

You can stay tonight,
And make everything alright.
You can hold me down,
And tell me that you're right.
Tell me what it's like to be alone.

You can stay tonight...

You can stay tonight,
And make everything alright.
You can hold me down,
And tell me that you're right.
Tell me what it's like to be alone

    General CommentWhoa, fucking amazing song.
    To me, its about a girl who left a guy (big surprise there :/) and he's writting about how much all the pain could go away if she just stayed with him. I feel like he put all his trust in this relationship just to see it come crashing down and he thought they they weren't going to be like everyone else and that they were actually going to make it. Turns out that they DO turn out like everyone else..kinda sad...

    General CommentIt's about a guy getin dumped and the period of waiting for her to return to him and desperation to do any thing for her return. (e.g "Would I give my life for you?") also maybe a apology for him maybe being to proud, (e.g "You can hold me down, /And tell me that you're right.") He will too ne thing for this gal but she's justt sOOoO not Cool ! .. I'll stay for Andrew!! *yuM!*

    General CommentTo me this song seems like it's about this b*tch of a girl and this obsessive guy, they both are wrong, but they both need eachother. Maybe two wrongs do make a right? Or maybe i'm just crazy.

    General CommentI see some mistakes with the lyrics.... but anywho, my favorite part is

    "i'll spend a million nights just like tonight you know
    I screamed your name at the sky until I lost my voice
    Well I'd give my life for you"

    General Commenti think that hes depressed cause she left him (maybe moved or prolly broke up with him) and he wants her back so badly he wonders if he would even give his life for her. and he regrets maybe being a jackass to her by saying "you can hold me down and tell me that your right" and hes scared cus hes doesnt know what its like to be alone idk just my thoughts

    General Commenti think its about a guy who loves girl more then she loves him....and hes thinking about if it would be better if he just gave up on her because she clearly doesnt love him as much as he loves her " tell me what it's like to be alone"
