Go
Stay
The light's already low enough to play
Can you catch me when I'm falling down?
And I'll control the moment if you
Try to make the most of this
And do what you always told me
When you made me walk away

And would you stay right here?
Did I tell you
That someone out there loves you?
If you stay right here
Then I’ll tell you
That someone out there loves you after all

Sometimes these things can always be so small
And sometimes you could look me back
And hold me down to catch this vision
I tried to make the most of this
And could you maybe kiss me when we
Decimate the stars?

And would you stay right here?
Did I tell you
That someone out there loves you?
If you stay right here
Then I’ll tell you
That someone out there loves you

If there's no one, no one out there
Is there no one, no one who cares
If there's no one, no one out there
Is there no one like you to share?
But would you ask yourself?
Would you ask yourself?

Stay

And would you stay right here?
Did I tell you
That someone out there loves you?

Stay right here, stay right here
Stay with me, stay right here
Stay right here, stay with me
Stay with me, stay with me
Stay with me, stay with me
Stay with me, stay with me
Stay with me, stay with me
Stay with me, stay with me

Stay, stay, stay, stay

    General CommentThis song is awesome!! it is about saving someone from suicide, and i think that it proves that My Chemical Romance is against suicide for those that think that people who listen to my chem are suicidal, which is not the case at all. I love it, and if I look at it at a different perspesctive it could mean that you should care for others. Expressing your emotions on how you feel for someone might just save them, or make one feel that they are needed. I love My Chemical Romance for these issues that they sing about, and they are the greatest band EVER!!!

    Lyric Correctionhey when I first saw these lyrics I was pretty sure they were off by, well a hell of a lot so I watched the TBPID performance again and compared it to other lyric sites. This is what I think is the most accurate version out there:
    ______________________________

    Stay
    The lights' already low enough to play
    Can you catch me when I'm falling down
    And I'll go and come home
    And if you try to make the most of this
    And do what you always told me
    When you made me walk away

    And would you stay right here
    Did I tell you
    That someone out there loves you
    If you stay right here
    Did I tell you
    That someone out there loves you after all

    Sometimes the things can always be so far
    And sometimes you could look me back
    And walk down to catch this reason
    I tried to make the most of this
    And could you make me miss you when we
    Dance beneath the stars

    And would stay right here
    Did I tell you
    That someone out there loves you
    If you stay right here
    Did I tell you
    That someone out there loves you

    If there's no one, no one out there
    Is there no one, no one who cares
    If there's no one, no one out there
    Is there no one like you to share
    But would you ask yourself
    Would you ask yourself

    Stay

    And would you stay right here
    Did I tell you
    That some out there loves you

    Stay with me, stay right here
    Stay with me, stay right here
    Stay right here, stay with me
    Stay with me, stay with me
    Stay with me, stay with me
    Stay with me, stay with me
    Stay with me, stay with me
    Stay with me, stay with me

    Stay, stay, stay, stay

    i love this song. i think it's about someone thinking of killing themselves but the speaker (Gerard?) is convincing them not to "stay right here" because someone out there loves them.

    General CommentSTART LIVING AND LISTEN TO THIS BAND.

    213 you need to cool it. its just irritating that people would go out of their way just to spew some bile. if you hate this band then get off this page and go watch synapse. youre so pathetic.

    anyway.....

    i haven't heard this song yet but from reading the lyrics alone, it seems to be pretty good. in my opinion, mcr have never had a bad song. some better than others, yes, but never a bad one. they are an amazing band.

    General CommentI can't wait to hear an actual version of this song that's easy to understand. This song simply seems to be about trying to convince someone to stay because no matter how bleak it may seem someone out there loves them and needs them to stay...
