"Stay" as written by Marko Saaresto, Olli Tukiainen and Markus Kaarlonen....
Morning comes slow today
Memories push through from yesterday
Where will I be tomorrow
What do I have to show

From my life
Stay
I need you here for a new day to break
Stay
I want you near like a shadow in my wake

Flow with life down the drain
Memories and force of will sustain
Where will I be tomorrow
What will be left to show

From my life
Stay
I need you here for a new day to break
Stay
I want you near like a shadow in my wake

It's the little things
Little things
Little things
That make the world

Stay
I need you here for a new day to break
Stay
I want you near like a shadow in my wake

    General CommentThis song speaks of the composers need (as opposed to want) for that 'special someone' in his life who has either recently departed or is contemplating doing so. "Stay, I need you here for a new day to break. Stay, I want you near, like a shadow in my wake."

    The line "It's the little things, little things, little things, that make the world" is especially poignant, especially as it pertains to relationships.

    Song Meaning"It's the little things, little things, little things, that make the world"

    Very simple, yet so true. This is one of my favorite lines ever in a song. I can't even count now how many situations in my life have made me realize that. And all of a sudden it feels like Marko comes in and starts singing this loudly inside my head, like he doesn't want me to ever forget it...
