"I dont know if i should stay" as written by Greg Johnston, Marc Wallace N Jordan and...
Where's my will
Can I find a way?
The earth is wild
And I can't sit still

A familiar sound
A familiar voice
Makes it so hard
To make a choice
I don't know if I should stay

A thousand stars
You will have my word
I'm bright enough
To fill these cracks

A familiar place
A familiar voice
Makes it so hard
To make a choice
I don't know if I should stay

I ran to you like water
I threw my body in
And I'll stand up on the ocean
Just to show you that I am strong, strong
But what if I am wrong

A familiar look
A familiar smile
Makes it so hard
To make a choice
I don't know if I should stay away

    General Commentfirst off i'm just going to say that this is by far the best song that alexz johnson sings and i have it on repeat.

    anyways... this song is about a girl that thinks that she's over a guy but in fact she can't stop thinking about this guy and she keeps thinking about him and doesn't know if she should stay away from him. she wantss to show him that she's over him but by singing this song it shows that she isn't anywhere near over him.

    General CommentThe Actual Lyrics Go Like This::
    Where's my will
    Can I find the way
    The earth is wild
    and I can't sit still

    A familiar sound
    A familar voice
    Makes it's so hard
    To make a choice
    I don't know if I should stay

    A thousand stars
    You will have my word
    I'm bright enough
    To fill these cracks

    A familiar place
    A familiar voice
    Makes it so hard
    To make a choice
    I don't know if I should stay

    I'll run to you like water
    Threw my body in,
    and I'll stand up on the ocean
    Just to show you that I am strong,strong
    But what if I'm wrong?

    A familiar Look
    A familiar Smile
    Makes it so hard
    To make a choice
    I don't know if I should stay
    Ooooh...
    Away...

    And I Totally Agree With BlondeHoney10xx

    General CommentI've corrected these lyrics on like 11 different websites now! :\
    The actual lyrics from the official website are:

    Where's my will
    Can I find a way
    The earth is wild
    And I can't sit still
    A familiar sound
    A familiar voice
    Makes it so hard to make a choice
    I don't know if I should stay

    A thousand stars
    You will have my word
    Aren't bright enough
    To fill these cracks
    A familiar place
    A familiar voice
    Makes it so hard to make a choice
    I don't know if I should stay

    I ran to you like water
    I throw my body in
    And I'll stand upon the ocean
    Just to show you that I am strong
    Strong
    But what if I am wrong?

    A familiar look
    A familiar style
    Makes it so hard to make a choice
    I don't know if I should stay
    Mmmmm
    Away

    General Commentha i love how simple this is, especially if u watch the show... its practically about making a choice between tommy and jamie. or u cud say its jsut about her feelings toward tommy, someone she will no matter what always 'run to like water', and how she doesn't know if its better for her to leave the feelings behind or to stay and keep going thru all the drama tommy causes..... id choose the drama anyday it makes such awesome tv lol!!

    "ill stand up on the ocean, jsut to show u that i am strong, strong.... but what if i am wrong?"

    the question at the end is beautiful it completely sums up her vulnerabilty and dependency on this guy who has complete control over her and she wants him to save her. and the way she sings it is awesome, the articulated words ahh so good. yea u can tell i love it...

    General CommentYes I agree one of the best songs. And with her voice, so beautiful and alnost lightto where you have to stop what you are doing to listen to her and get the full message. It really brings out the power in this song. What a voice for the ballads. I love it. And though this song is clearly her trying to make a decision between two guys, I think it can apply to other areas of life. Making changes like moving or going back to school, going to visit the doctor when you suspect something is wrong. Change can be scary and all we can ever do is hope we've made the right choice. I'm sure that is one of everyones biggerst fears; that we made the wrong one and our lives change for the worse.

    Still a good song and a great show. I miss it
