"Stay With Me Bright Eyes" as written by Scott Raymond Chapman, Timothy Alan Crocker, Jake Mathew Grigg, David Crozier Mcbeath and Lachlan William R. Scott....
If you were the melody, then I would be the song;
Together we would make everybody sing along,
Whistling and a singing through the halls and through the streets
Everybody's dancing and there moving to the beat.

Baby, don't go now
Don't go now
Don't go now
'Cause i need you right here.
I'll give away anything and everything for this.

If I was a shadow, then you would be the sun,
Together we would always be cause you the only one.

If I was a poem then you would be the pain,
Together we would need each other like a rose needs rain.
Baby, don't go now
Don't go now
Don't go now
'Cause i need you right here
I'll give away anything and everything for this.

Stay with me bright eyes, stay with me darling,
And never go,
I'll never get over you.

Stay with me bright eyes, stay with me darling,
and never go,
I'll never get over you.

If I was the magic, then you would be the trick;
Together we would challenge what everybody thinks

If I was the villain then I would steal your heart,
I would take it everywhere with me in a jar

Baby,
Don't go now
Don't go now
Don't go now
'Cause i need you right here,
I'll give away anything and everything for this

Stay with me bright eyes, stay with me darling,
And never go
I'll never get over you.

Stay with me bright eyes, stay with me darling
And never go
I'll never get over you.

Feels like I'm drowning in the rain,
If I shout aloud,
You won't even hear me now.

Feels like I'm drowning in the rain,
If I shout aloud,
You won't even hear me now.

Feels like I'm drowning in the rain,
If I shout aloud,
You won't even hear me now.

Feels like I'm drowning in the rain,
And If I shout aloud,
You won't even hear me now.

You won't even hear me!

Stay with me bright eyes, stay with me darling;
And never go,
I'll never get over you.

Stay with me bright eyes, stay with me darling;
And never go,
I'll never get over you.

    General Commenti think this song means that im nothing without you....
    like if a were something u would be ...

    and i think he is trying to convince her not to leave him

    My InterpretationI think he's saying that he loves his girl and he doesn't want to lose her and would do anything to stay with her coz she's basically the cheese to his macaroni :)

    He's saying if she leaves he'd never get over her, and he wants her to realise that but he feels like she isn't listening.

    General CommentYeah, I agree with the whole "Nothing without you" meaning.

    Like in the lines

    "Feels like I'm drowning in the rain,
    And If I shout aloud,
    You won't even hear me now."

    To be as if the rain were people and he'd just drown into the background without her, and if he shouted out to her, she wouldn't notice or hear him. He'd just be nothing.

    Top song (:
