"Stay This Way" as written by Peter Andreas Moren, John Thomas Daniel Eriksson and Bj�rn Daniel Arne Yttling....
Things aren't working out like they're supposed to,
But at least they're working out
If you ask yourself if anything is meaningful,
You'll find that everything is no doubt

Call it lack of inspiration,
Resignation, stupid or immature
You can only do as much in little time,
If you're up for sharing I can split up mine
'Cause it makes me happy

I've been up and down
And out and in
And everything that's in between
And in my ridicule I thought that I was something special,

In spite of ordinary dreams
But you end up getting tired of doing psychoanalysis of yourself

You can only do as much in little time,
If you're up for sharing, I can split up mine.
'Cause it makes me happy

(Why can't we stay this way?)
I don't wanna go back,
I don't wanna move on
(Why can't we stay this way?)
I don't wanna grow old,
I don't wanna stay young

(Why can't we stay this way?)
I don't wanna go back,
I don't wanna move on
(Why can't we stay this way?)
I don't wanna grow old,
I don't wanna stay young

I don't wanna know you,
Not like I used to know people
I don't wanna change you,
Not like I used to change people
I just want to have you here

    General Commenti think this one's about a guy who used to or still is what we call
    a " player "
    but know he's met this girl who has changed his ways, or is close to.
    either way our player here cares for this lady which is uncommon for him.
    or
    he is still a hot shot and she is just another fish in the sea for him. maybe she's a real good booty call lol.
    could go either way
    " I don't wanna know you,
    not like I used to know people.
    I don't wanna change you,
    not like I used to change people.
    I just want to have you here. "

    well, that's my take on things. i'm probly wrong.

    Song MeaningI feel and think that this song is about feeling that your life is peaking, and that you don't want it any other way (listen to the Streets "wouldn't have it any other way" on this topic). The narrator in this lyric doesn't have to be a player in my opinion. I think that he doesn't care about anything but this love, who he wants to stay with. I think this song describes really well how it is to be in love with "the love of our life".
