"Stay Still" as written by Beau Mark Bokan, Eric Lambert, Michael Tyler Frisby, Jared Warth, Matthew James Traynor and Michael Elvis Baskette....
Tonight is gone
They tell you it's your time
But I won't let them take you from me
And I'll never get far from you
(I'll never get far from you)
We all feel the same
(Can't stop this suffering in my head)
Can't turn this one around

If I could pull you from wreckage
We'd be all fine, oh lord
Don't tell me this is happening
If I could hold you for a second
We'd be all right, oh lord
Don't tell me this is happening

So when does it start getting better
So far from home
The lights are fading out
Just leave us all behind

If I could pull you from wreckage
We'd be all fine, oh lord
Don't tell me this is happening
If I could hold you for a second
We'd be all right, oh lord
Don't tell me this is happening

Ohhhh
I never should have let you go
Until I'll be with you
I'm dying on my own

If I could pull you from wreckage
We'd be all fine, oh lord
Don't tell me this is happening
If I could hold you for a second
We'd be all right, oh lord
Don't tell me this is happening

And I know
I'm not the only one
Don't tell me this is happening
And I know, I'm not the only one
Don't tell me this is happening
Don't tell me this is happening

    Lyric CorrectionOkay, you really screwed these lyrics up.

    "And tonight is gone
    They tell you it's your time
    But I won't let them take you from me
    And I never gave up on you
    (I never gave up on you)
    We all feel the same
    (Can't stop this suffering in my head)
    Can't turn this one around

    If I could pull you from wreckage
    We'd be alright, oh lord
    Don't tell me this is happening
    If I could hold you for a second
    We'd be alright, oh lord
    Don't tell me this is happening

    So when does it start getting better
    So far from home
    The lights are fading out
    Just leave us all behind

    If I could pull you from wreckage
    We'd be alright, oh lord
    Don't tell me this is happening
    If I could hold you for a second
    We'd be alright, oh lord
    Don't tell me this is happening

    I never should have let you go
    And take me with you
    I'm dying on my own

    If I could pull you from wreckage
    We'd be alright, oh lord
    Don't tell me this is happening
    If I could hold you for a second
    We'd be alright, oh lord
    Don't tell me this is happening

    And I know
    I'm not the only one
    Don’t tell me this is happening
    And I know, I'm not the only one
    Don't tell me this is happening
    Don't tell me this is happening"


    And by the way, this song was actually written about Beau's friend who died in a plane accident.

    General CommentBeau Bokan's father always instructed him to remain calm during haircuts, lest his ear be cut off by accident. One day he ignored him, and found the warnings to become reality. This is why Beau is missing his left ear, and also why his hair is so long, as he fears it happening again.
