"Stay" as written by Ralf Kappmeier, Sascha Lappessen, Thomas Luedke and Perquita L. Mccoy....
Stay

I walk to the edge again, searching for the truth
Taken by the memories of all that I've been through
If I could hear your voice then I might be
Okay
I know that I've been wrong but I'm begging you
To stay. Won't you stay?

Will you be here or will I be alone?
Will I be scared? You'll teach me how to be strong
And if I fall down will you help me carry on?
I cannot do this alone.

I wish that I could turn back time just to have
One more chance to be the man I need to be.
I pray you'll understand.
If I could hear your voice I might be okay.
I know that I've been wrong but I'm begging you to stay.
Won't you stay?

I need your hand to help me make it through
Again
Nothing compares to how I feel when I look at
You
You never know, you never know tomorrow
You never know, you never know tomorrow, don't
Walk away

I am not alone I know you're there.

    General CommentThe best song on the new album in my opinion:
    Its about a person who hasn't totally got there faith in God down yet, and they are just wanting to make sure that he will still be there for them even though they have done some bad stuff in they're life. He is calling out for help. Great song!

    General CommentI didn't looking for religious meaning in this song, I never do.

    I felt the song is him calling out to a friend/girlfriend, someone who had been there and was no longer. Hes telling them he needs them to go on, its a cry for help.

    But I do see where you could find 'God' in the lyrics.

    General CommentA few of those lines are incorrect, for instance it should be :

    I need your hand to help me through these times again

    Well, seeing as 12 Stones are a CHRISTIAN band, there is going to be some religious meanings in this song.

    "if I could hear your voice
    I know I would be okay
    I know that I've been wrong
    but I'm begging you to stay
    won't you stay?"

    The narrator is asking God for a his voice, a direction in his life, something to life his spirits up. Begging 'him' to stay as in keep [the narrator's] faith stong

    and the chorus is just explaining his need for faith, again for guidance and strength.

    "I wish that I could turn back time
    just to have one more chance
    to be the man I need to be
    I pray you'll understand"

    The narrator needs his faith to face the demons of his past and confront them in the present day, and he can only do this with 'him' to make things right again......


    ....just read/listen to the lyrics/song and you will see 12 Stones touch of faith here.

    I mean come on, they are a christian band. If you don't know that by now, you are retarded.
