"Please Don't Go" as written by and Brian Leseny Fennell....
All those arrows you threw, you threw them away
You kept falling in love and then one day
When you fell, you fell towards me
When you crashed in the clouds, you found me

Oh, please don't go
I want you so
I can't let go
For I lose control

Get these left handed lovers out of your way
They look hopeful but you, you should not stay
If you want me to break down and give you the keys
I can do that but I can't let you leave

Oh, please don't go
I want you so
I can't let go
For I lose control

    Song MeaningThe song is like a reverse of All at Once by the Fray. All at Once talks about forsaking a girl for another. This song is about being forsaken.

    My InterpretationI think its about two bestfriends, and one doesn't realise how much the other one means to him and how much he is pushing her away for his new lover- "All those arrows you threw, you threw them away" He thinks that he is in love with this new girl and abandons his friend to spend more time with her but then one day something goes wrong in the relationship and he comes back to his friend for help- " You kept falling in love and then one day, When you fell, you fell towards me, When you crashed in the clouds, you found me. "

    "oh please dont go,"
    "i want you so"
    "i cant let go"
    "for i loose control"
    i think that this is how the friend feels when he leaves her. She doesnt want him to leave as she is in love with him. She cant simply forget about him like he wants her to and she still holds on to an intimate moment that they shared a long time ago- "I cant let go". When he leaves she is left lost and doesnt know what to do, she doesnt know how to cope without him always being there- "For i loose control"

    As his bestfriend,the girl knows what is best for the guy and knows that the relationship will not work even though it looks hopeful to him. -Get these left handed lovers out of your way, They look hopeful to you, but you should not stay " I think the term left handed lovers shows that they arent meant to be together like left and right and that it is a very messy relationship. "If you want me to break down and give you the keys, I can do that but i cant let you leave ". Here i think she is saying that if he wants her to just leave them alone and to stop telling him that he shouldnt go out with her then she will so long as he is happy, however she wont let him leave their friendship as it means to much to her and she cannot live without him in her life.

    Overall i think it is a very beautiful song and I hold it close to my heart. Hearing the song makes me cry!!

    General CommentI absolutely love this song. It's so simple, pure and sweet. It's just about how head over heels, hopelessly, crazy in love he is about this girl.
    I get shivers whenever I hear them play this one live.

    Lyric CorrectionI love this song. It reminds me of a boy that I really like. Everytime we talk it feels like its the last time we'll ever see each other. Constantly playing a game which none of us will win. lol. Whenever we stop talking for a little while. I can't seemed to stop thinking about him. I try to move on but theres always a magical momemt that happens during the day, reminds me of all the things that I love about him. Even though were not meant to be and life goes on, theres a part of him that is going to stay with me forever.

    My InterpretationWhen I first heard this song, I imagined cupid trying to make himself/herself fall in love. 'You threw them away' referring to them not liking the people they thought they fell in love with.
    The narrator; deeply in love with the subject, felt like they had to be there whenever he/she fell into a black hole. They were the only person they could rely on. From the lyrics, I feel that they know the narrator is in love with them, and in a way is in fact using them to pick themselves back up.

    The lyrics express hurt alongside a deep need of companionship on both sides.
    'Please don't go, I want you so. I can't let go, for I lose control.'

    We can all relate to this song; whether a lover, a family member or friend.

    So many beautiful words strung together.
