"Don't Stop" as written by Dan Haseltine, Charlie Lowell, Stephen Daniel Mason and Matt Odmark....
You told them that I hung the moon
It was a lonely sliver hanging from the sky
I said I put it there for you
I didn't think that it would make you cry

Don't stop, don't stop for me now
Don't stop, don't stop for me now

My recurring dream of you
Starlight in your eyes and music everywhere
I am dancing close to you
There are no days or nights we've left behind

Don't stop, don't stop for me now
Don't stop, don't stop for me now
When you're running, you're running far away
And you don't know what to do with all my love
Don't stop for me now

And why is it so hard to say that you need me
The way that I need you

There are no days, there are no nights, we've left them all behind
And you can run so far that I won't reach
There are no places I won't find you, yeah

Don't stop, don't stop for me now
Don't stop, don't stop for me now

You keep running, yeah, you're running far away
When all I want to do is be with you my love
You never run so far, run so far, my love
By the light of the moon I will get to you somehow
So don't stop for me now

    General Commenti think it's a love song from god. "you told them that i hung the moon/it was a lonely sliver hanging from the sky/I said i put it there for you" i could be wrong, but i see love songs by christian artists usually from or to god.

    My InterpretationI think this is from God's point of view. How He loves us so much and we often reject His love.
    "When you're running, you're running far away /
    And you don't know what to do with all my love"

    General CommentI like what pr1nc355 and kasper2184 said. Does anyone know what is meant by the line "don't stop for me now?" If it is a love song from God, why wouldn't He want us to stop running from Him? Do you think it's just one of those things where He wants us to have free will in every situation? Or something more? Just curious. Any opninions are welcome. :)

    General Commenti don't think it's a song from God:

    1) My recurring dream of you
    Starlight in your eyes and music everywhere
    >>Someone may say that it's like the song of solomon where in it is actually a metaphor of God's love.
    However,

    2) And why is it so hard to say that you need me
    The way that I need you
    >>God doesn't need us the way we need Him.

    Though I also had a thought that some of these lines really just describes God's love
    (like, "And you can't run so far that I won't reach
    There are no places I won't find you, yeah")
    I would take it really as a love song of a man for his beloved.
