God was there, always had the best of drugs
Knew where to get them from a lady friend
And I believe her name was Stella.

He said
"Stella, Stella, I wanna give you the world if you just stay with me tonight.
Stella, Stella, I wanna give you the world if you just hold me tight"

I don't wanna know how it will go, ooh
When god hands over the whole wide world to
A 43 year old hooker form down town
Maybe it's about time the old man hands over the gloves.

Stella, Stella, I wanna give you the world if you just stay with me tonight
Stella, Stella, I wanna give you the world if you just hold me tight
Hold me tight, hold me tight, hold me tight

And it made me realize how much you wanna give away just to feel love.
And the love blinked to me and asked,
"What is real love to you? What is fake and what is true?"

Oh Stella, Stella, I wanna give you the world if you just stay with me tonight.
Stella, Stella, I wanna give you the world if you just hold me tight.

Stella, Stella, I wanna give you the world if you just stay with me tonight
Stella, Stella, I wanna give you the world if you just hold me tight
Hold me tight, hold me tight, hold me tight.

Stella, Stella, I wanna give you the world if you just stay with me tonight
Stella, I wanna give you the world if you just hold me tight

Stella, Stella, I wanna give you the world if you just stay with me tonight
Stella, Stella, I wanna give you the world if you just hold me tonight

    General CommentI can't believe no one has commented on this song yet but a quick correction-the song is called just 'stella', not 'stella and god'.

    Anyways, the song seems to be about a guy who falls in love with his drug dealer (who happens to be a hooker), and would do anything to actually have her for a night.

    Alternatively, it could actually be about God who goes to a drug dealer/hooker named Stella, and thinks she could take his place if she spends a night with him

    General CommentDoes anyone else think of the play 'A Streetcar Named Desire'?
    Where Stanley yells Stella out in the street?

    General CommentThank you so much for saying something about Stella.
    I just saw Ida Maria at coachella and this song stood out beautifuly.

    I agree with your ideas about God wanting to hand over the world to his "hooker" but what do you think it means more deeply.

    Is god done with his job?
    Does he need affection?

    General CommentI agree with Schultzee. Seems to me what people would give up for love or to fall in love.
    I fucking love this song and her voice is amazing.

    General CommentI do like this song
    I think the song is about the distorting powers of love. It uses the extreme example of God who of course has everything yet he'd give it all up for one night with some middle aged hooker. The only reason you'd ever do something that crazy is for love

    General CommentThat's strange, I never saw this song as an optimistic comment. I'd thought that it was more along the theme of the false "love" of prostitution. Like, how falling for a client would be stupid because all they truly want is sex.

    General Commentwow i just youtubed the stella scene from streetcar named desire

    until i saw that clip i never thought anyone in the world could scream the word stella with as much emotion and passion as ida maria does in this song
    but i tell you what - marlon brando gives it a pretty good shot!

    anyhoo
    the prostitute isnt his drug dealer and yeah i agree with schultzee and blaq fairy
