"Stays Four The Same" as written by and Jordan Witzigreuter....
I could've wrote down
Every thought I've been thinking to myself all this past year.
But would it stand out
"Oh, I wanna make myself clear."
And baby, clearly
I need some balance in my ears right now
'Cause I've been freaking myself out
And I've been waking this whole town.

And then I turned myself inside out
La da da da da
And it's all about
The way your hips move
Side to side,
Left to right,
Guide me home tonight.

And I need a little more thunder, a little more lightning.
A little more you,
Be my lantern.
Help me shine on through.

So I said,
I, I gotta comb my brain for the words to say.
And if you don't feel right then it's a wasted night
The price to pay is so, so high.
And the irony could be cut with a knife.
'Cause its my first chance.
But it's my last chance.

And then I turned myself inside out
La da da da da
And it's all about
The way your hips move
Side to side,
Left to right,
Guide me home tonight.

And I need a little more thunder, a little more lightning.
A little more you,
Be my lantern.
Help me shine on through.

Baby,
Well I gotta have you loving me tonight.
And when my world has become a whirlwind
Will you be my white flag?

Speed it up like sugar,
I'm a wreck and you know that I can't do a thing about it, about it.
Break it down,
I'm on my knees,
Baby take another chance, oh please.
I'm affordable, I'm trainable
When you're taking me out, I'm taking you in.

Speed it up like sugar,
I'm a wreck and you know that I can't do a thing about it, about it.
Break it down,
I'm on my knees,
Baby take another chance, oh please.
I'm affordable, I'm trainable
When you're taking me out, I'm taking you in.

I gotta migrate a catastrophe.
I stood strong,
It was the best for me.
My town is irrela-relavant.
Blue eyes match my green lies
Yeah!

And I need a little more thunder, a little more lightning.
A little more you,
Be my lantern.
Help me shine on through.
And I need a little more thunder, a little more lightning.
A little more you,
(Give me more of you)
Be my lantern.
(Give me more of you)
Help me shine on through.

Baby,
Well I gotta have you loving me tonight.
And when my world has become a whirlwind
Will you be my white flag?

    General CommentSpeed it up like sugar,
    I'm a wreck and you know that I can't do a thing about it (about it).
    Break it down,
    I'm on my knees,
    Baby take another chance, oh please.
    I'm affordable, I'm trainable
    When you're taking me out, I'm taking you in.

    I gotta mild grade A catastrophe.
    Stood strong,
    It was the best for me.
    My town is irrela-relavant.
    Blue eyes match green lies.

    General CommentGuy [really] likes girl. Girl doesn't really give guy much of a chance, but he still can't get enough of her. He's got a problem (catastrophe) in that, so he's asking her, "will you be my surrender when my world is a whirlwind?", because he has to have her loving him back, tonight. :)

    General CommentSo I'm typing this with the booklet infront of me:

    **In the chorus, lighting should be lightning. Where it says 'I've got to call my brain," call should be comb. And near the middle, the lines should be:

    Speaking up like sugar Im a wreck
    And you know I can't do a thing about it about it
    Breaking down all on my knees
    Baby, take another chance, oh please?
    I'm a flood, I'm a train, I'm a wind,
    You're taking me out, I'm taking you in.
    Got a mind a grade-A catastrophe....

    And the rest is good except for 'green lights' should be 'green lies.'

    General CommentAs for the meaning, I think the song is about the singer, Jordan, crushing on a girl but being to afraid to talk to her. Ok, I'll try to decipher this piece by piece:

    I could have wrote down
    Every thought I've been thinking to myself all this past year (every thought of you)
    But would it stand out (amongst other guys' thoughts)
    Oh I want to make myself clear.

    And baby clearly
    I need some balance in my ears right now (I'm not sure what this means... but I think it has something to do with his brain, because its between his ears. Like he's going crazy- he needs balance)
    Cause I've been freaking myself out.
    And I've been waking this whole town

    And then I turn myself inside out (he's changing his ways for her)
    La Da Da Da Da
    And it's all about the way your hips move side to side
    Left to right guide me home tonight

    And I need a little more thunder
    A little more lightning (a little more power/energy/strength so he can have...)
    A little more you
    Be my lantern help me shine on through

    So said I, I got to comb my brain for the words to say (he's thinking of what he'll say to her)
    And if it don't feel right then it's a wasted night
    The price to pay is so, so high
    And the irony could be cut with a knife (the irony is so think you'll need a knife to cut it? Not completely sure)
    Cause it's my first chance
    But it's my last chance
    Alright

    And then I turn myself inside out
    La Da Da Da Da
    And its all about the way your hips move side to side
    Left to right guide me home tonight

    And I need a little more thunder
    A little more lightning
    A little more you
    Be my lantern help me shine on through

    Baby well I got to have you loving me tonight
    And when my world has
    Become a whirlwind (when he has problems...)
    Would you be my white flag (...will she be his answer?)

    Speaking up like sugar, I'm a wreck (he speaks really fast, lotsa energy--like sugar)
    And you know I can't do a thing about it, about it.
    Breaking down all on my knees
    Baby, take another chance, oh please?
    I'm a flood, I'm a train, I'm a wind (he's invincible?)
    You're taking me out, I'm taking you in (she's over him, but he isn't over her)

    [Repeat]


    I've got a mind, a grade-A catastrophe (even though he has a brain, it's not helping him talk to her)
    Stood strong it was the best for me
    My town is irrele-irrelevant
    Blue eyes match green lies (Not sure what this means...)

    And I need a little more thunder
    A little more lightning
    A little more you
    Be my lantern help me shine on through

    And I need a little more thunder
    A little more lighting
    A little more you
    Be my lantern help me shine on through

    Baby well I got to have you loving me tonight
    And world has
    Become a whirlwind
    Would you be my white flag?

    General CommentLook at the song title: "Stays four the same" the four is there for a reason, I know this because when he first released it the use of the numerical term bothered me and I told him. I was then informed that it has meaning. So I think it's about his girlfriend, Katelyn, who he has been with for several years and at the time this was written I think it had actually been 4 years.
