"Stay With You" as written by John Rzeznik and Glen Ballard....
These streets
Turn me inside out
Everything shines
But leaves me empty still
And I'll, burn this lonely house down
If you run with me
If you run with me

I'll stay with you
The walls will fall before we do
Take my hand now
We'll run forever
I can feel the storm inside you
I'll stay with you

Fooled by my own desires
I twist my fate
Just to feel you
But you, turn me toward the light
And you're one with me
Will you run with me?

I'll stay with you
The walls will fall before we do
Take my hand now
We'll run forever
I can feel the storm inside you
I'll stay with you

Now come in from this storm
I taste you sweet and warm
Take what you need
Take what you need
From me

Wake up this world
Wake up tonight
And run with me
Run to me now

I'll stay with you
The walls will fall before we do
Take my hand now
We'll run forever
I can feel the storm inside you
I'll stay with you

    General CommentAwesome sounding song... despite being a newer song, it doesn't sound as "mainstreamed" ...in fact it sounds like it could pass on "Superstar Car Wash".

    General CommentI really, really like this song. It is so much better then Better Days. Honestly, I think Better Days was good, but it got kind of old pretty fast. I think SWY will stay for a long time. I agree with you wheaties, it sounds like something that could be from SSCW...but it also has a DUTG/Gutterflower-y feel to it.

    I can't decide if it's a happy love song, or a song about his mother. Somebody on AG mentioned that it sounded like it could be about his mother, because John said something in an interview or something about going back to Buffalo and seeing the streets he grew up on, and the house he grew up in, seeing his mother being taken away in an ambulance....it brought back memories....and it sort of goes with parts of this song.

    But it also sounds like it could be a hopeful, beginning-of-a-new-relationship type of love song.

    GO REQUEST STAY WITH YOU!!!!!

    General CommentI think it's about a person who has become sick of the place they are at, and they just want to escape and be free. He wants to take someone special with him and run forever, never boig tired down, just being free together. She's all that he wants.

    The Goo Goo Dolls rock my world and their new cd kicks ass. Let Love In...
