"I Can't Stay Away" as written by and Hugo Peretti George Weiss....
This is wrong
I should be gone
Yet here we lay
Cause I can't stay away
Roses bloom
In your dirty room
I Come to play
Cause I can't stay away
No I can't stay away

[Chorus]
I'm conflicted
I inhale now I'm addicted
To this place
To you babe
I can't stay away
Can't stay away
Get up, go down
Then we go and more round
It's wrong, they say
I can't stay a, I can't stay away
I can't stay a, I can't stay away

I was numb
For you I come
Night and day
And I can't stay away
No I can't stay away

[Chorus]

I wish I could
Leave and never return
Baby, I know I should
But for you I'd burn

Stay away
Cause I can't stay away

[Chorus]

I can't stay away
I can't stay away
I can't stay away, I can't stay away

    General Commenti think this song is about her being the other woman, like she knows this will never go anywhere
    and it's wrong but she can't get away bc he makes her feel so good.

    General CommentThis song is about still being in love with your ex. She just cant stay away, even though she knows that it is wrong but she's addicted to his love and as much as she trys she can't forget him. She's also saying, for him she's burn...that explains how much she loves him.

    General CommentI think this song could also be about being in a relationship she shouldn't be.. either for her own reasons like she doesn't want to be so obsessed with someone, but can't help it. Or it could also be about cheating on her current bf with some guy she 'can't stay away' from no matter how much she knows it's wrong, and even though 'they say' it's wrong. I love the tune to this song soo much.

    Obvious about sex. She knows it's only about sex, nothing more.... imo ;)

    "You get up, you go down
    And then we go one more round
    It's wrong, they say..."

    I really like this song, the chorus is so cool to sing =)

    General CommentI like this song, i think its really good.
    The meaning?
    I don't really know- probabaly about a lover or soemthing.
    Personally, I think it's about being in love with a one night stand, because she knows it's wrong, but she's addicted to that feeling of being bad and she loves that high. And just wants to keep getting with one night stands.

    General CommentI do think this song has much to do with sex like what Dynah said. I think that she knows that this guy only wants sex with her and he doesn't actually care about her otherwises and though she knows that, she keeps coming back for more. She wants to believe that she can change his mind by having sex with him but on some level knows that she needs to stop doing what's she is doing.

    General Commenti think it is about sex but with the wrong person, like a friends bf or an ex but being addicted to it, even if it is wrong

    General Commentlmao spicer! i dont think so cuz it does say she's in his room and cant stay away. if it were maturbation im sure with this line "You get up, you go down
    And then we go one more round" she's not talking about her vibe lmao. i agree with the others a song about sex she knows its wrong but still goes to him i guess as beautifulletdown says to change his mind. it makes sense. I also think maybe its a relationship she wants to get out of but really really loves the guy. i'd say that cuz thats what i've been going through lately

    General Commentyeah it's about sex lol. she knows she shouldn't because the relationship is only about that and they have no emotional relationship, it's just all physical, but she's addicted and can't stay away from the person.
