"Stop the World" as written by Nicholas Jonas, Pj Bianco and Demi Lovato....
I don't know why, I don't know why
I'm so afraid (so afraid)
I don't know how, I don't know how
To fix the pain (fix the pain)

We're livin' a lie, livin' a lie
This need to change (need to change)
Were out of time, were out of time,
And its still the same

We can't stop the world,
But there's so much more that we can do.
You can't stop this girl from falling more in love with you.
You said nobody has to know give us time to grow and take it slow.
But I'd stop the world
If they finally let us be alone.
Let us be alone.
I'd stop the world

I'm
Hearin' the noise, hearin' the noise
From all around (from all around)
I'm on edge, I'm on edge

Of breakin' down (breakin' down)
Like Bonnie and Clyde,
Let's find a ride
And ditch this town.

To keep it alive, keep it alive
Don't make a sound.

We can't stop the world,
But there's so much more that we can do.
You can't stop this girl from falling more in love with you.
You said nobody has to know give us time to grow and take it slow.
But I'd stop the world
If they finally let us be alone.
Let us be alone.
I'd stop the world

I never wanna take that final look,
I'll turn another page
Won't close the book.

We can't stop the world,
But there's so much more that we can do.
You can't stop this girl from falling more in love with you.
You said nobody has to know give us time to grow and take it slow.
But I'd stop the world
If they finally let us be alone.
Let us be alone.
I'd stop the world

Let us be alone
Alone, ooh, ooh, weee-ah. Alone.

    General CommentSo I'm pretty sure this song is about Alex Noyes from Honor Society

    1. Honor Society has a song called "Nobody Has to Know" and Demi says that the guy in the song told her this.

    2. They have a song called "Don't Close the Book" and in it they say "We'll meet up on another page, don't close the book". Basically the same lyric that Demi says in the bridge.

    3. There are rumors all over the internet about them dating, and it's already confirmed that they atleast are friends and know each other. It only makes sense.

    Either way, this is a GREAT song. My favorite on the album. <3

    My InterpretationA secret relationship that no one approves of; she won't give up hope that someday they'll be free to be together without a care, and wishes she could stop time to let the be for a little while.

    General Commentthis is an awesome song. it sounds kind of like a miley cyrus song for some weird reason that i cant explain. but anyway, when i heard the preview i first thought it was about global warming or something. haha. until she said "we can't stop this girl." but it's another great song from demi. i love this new album!

    General CommentI agree with QuietIsTheNewLoud. Well said. And bornbackwards got the main idea. I went to her concert and she said this song was like, "forbidden love," which was an almost perfect way to phrase it. She even made a reference to Romeo and Juliet and how she doesn't mean to fall in love this person because she knows that nobody approves of it, but she believes that they will stay together.

    My InterpretationMy interpretion is :
    There's a secret relationship between a boy & a girl. They're hiding it from the world I guess to avoid all the judgements & all the gossip. They just wish that they could make the world come to a pause where It's just them two to be in love & no one can know what's goiing on because they're frozen in time. & one of them would stop the people in the world who would redicule & make their relationship suffer so that they can just live their life together, in love & nothing or no one to stop them.
    Nick & Demi , great song.

    General CommentI love this song. I agree with most. She was in a relationship that no one approved of. "He said no body has to know give us time to grow, and take it slow."He's saying why give them a reason to try to break us up. Lets be together anyway and take it as slow as we want with no pressure. "But I'd stop the world, if it finally lets us be alone." She'd do anything to just have time with him, with no one trying to tell her what to do with him. To love with no limit.
