"Stay Where You Are" as written by and Marcus Congleton....
Hang around and I'm paranoid
I can't help it now
But I don't know what the people know
I want something to count
Just stay where you are

We're right behind you
Stay where you are
When someone's lookin'
Stay where you are
I might not be the one that's true
But I'm trying, don't you know

Rattle coins in a coffee can
You shuffle on and on
Turn around, turn around
They're burning hotels down
Son, stay where you are

We're right behind you
Stay where you are
I'm always looking
Stay where you are
I might not be the one that's true
But I'm trying, don't you know

Don't you know
Don't hang on, don't let go
Don't aim high, don't aim low

    General CommentI have no idea what it's about, but I can't believe no one's commented on this song! (Not counting the 4 comments on the one that was spelt wrong)
    It's quite awesome.

    General Commentgohashbrowns! this song is all about "staying where you are." some people have the notion that where you grew up isn't your home and that you have to go searching for it but really home is where you are right now. Home is where people care about you so the band is saying that you don't have to go anywhere, "don't aim high but don't aim low." Very great band looked forward to their sophomore album, I think it's called Mastered or something.

    General Comment..or "staying where you are" could be talking about keeping a relationship with someone.

    General Commenthmm...i think it's about 2 sweethearts who don't want things to change. they know there's new things to try, but are happy where they are at that time and place.

    General Commenti can relate to this pretty deeply. i think this song is referring to the protagonist who is madly in love with the other person, but the other person has moved on and no longer cares for the protag. in this way any longer. so the protag. is asking him/her to "stay where you are" and don't move on because he isn't ready/can't yet since he's still trying to "be the one that's true."

    General CommentOccam's Razor says... this song is about staying where you are, whatever that means or wherever you are. It's a wonderfully composed song with a delicate balance of all musical elements. It's my favorite song on the album.

    General CommentAwesome song!
    I think of it as 2 people who are unsure of what they want - most probably the relationship between them (doesn't have to be romantic). Things will change soon cos they will both be embarking on new challenges but for now, they will be contented to just stay where they are, maybe because the future is too uncertain (coins rattling in a coffee can, hotels being burned down). Just my take though!
