"Stand In The Spotlight" as written by Ben Jorgensen, Peter James Decicco, Nash Breen, Anthony Diionno, John David Deley and Y ....
They can't see your heart
They don't care to see who you are
They're just a pack of wolves
Don't let them break you down
Don't let them break you down

You are the starlight
That sparks up the whole night
Just let their voices fade out
And stand in the spotlight
Take a bow

Everybody's lost
Most people think they're not
But I'm not losing you now
I don't think I can at all
Don't let them break you down

You are the starlight
That sparks up the whole night
Just let their voices fade out
And stand in the spotlight
Take a bow

Please don't run away from me
I don't want to find you lost in their eyes
Please don't make a fool of me
Cause I don't want to find you lost and alone

One day they'll see
One day they'll all see
One day they'll be shouting the truth
One day (one day)
They'll all be cheering for you
They'll all be cheering for you
They'll all be cheering for you
They'll all be cheering for you

You are the starlight
That sparks up the whole night
Just let their voices fade out
And stand in the spotlight
Take a bow

    General Commentthis song is about being different
    about not just going along with the crowd
    and about knowing your real friends
    the ones that care
    and not falling for the pack of wolves that will just use you
    they dont bother to see who you really are
    and theyll just break you down
    its about shining and rising from the lies
    and being who you are
    and that you should be proud of standing in the spotlight or standing out of the
    very good song imo

    General CommentI always imagined this song about a girl, who's really pretty, and everybody wants her, but won't show her true self...
    "They can't see your heart
    They don't care to see who you are
    They're just a pack of wolves
    Don't let them break you down
    Don't let them break you down"

    And he compares the guys to a pack of wolves, because she's really pretty, and they all 'fight' over her, just to get in her pants. And when they succeed, they break up with her, and break her down some more.

    "You are the starlight
    That sparks up the whole night
    Just let their voices fade out
    And stand in the spotlight
    Take a bow"
    I thought that he was talking about how her beauty could be "blinding", but the good blinding, because of the starlight part. And the rest is about her showing her true self, and not letting herself be affected by the guys who just want her for her looks. ("Just let their voices fade out")

    "Everybody's lost
    Most people think they're not
    But I'm not losing you now
    I don't think I can at all"
    He's saying that a lot of people don't see that people are being hurt by guys trying to get to them for sex, and end up getting lost. Then, he says that he's not losing her now, because, obviously, he's trying not to let her get hurt by them.

    "Please don't run away from me
    I don't want to find you lost in their eyes
    Please don't make a fool of me
    Cause I don't want to find you lost and alone"

    Here, she's been hurt too much by the guys that she thought loved her, breaking up with her, so she's "running away" from him...as in, being more shy, not showing her true self, etc. And he doesn't want to find her "lost/alone", because that would mean that she got hurt again by a guy, and he doesn't want that to happen to her.

    "One day they'll see
    One day they'll all see
    One day they'll be shouting the truth
    One day (one day)
    They'll all be cheering for you"

    He's saying that one day, they'll see that they were idiots for doing this to her, and one day she'll look back on this, when she's older, and learn her less and grow/become a better person, and they'll be "cheering her on", because they helped her achieve this in the end.

    Well, that's just what I got from this song...It's probably much different from other's POVs, but oh well.
