"Stay With Me" as written by Josh Franceschi, Max Helyer, Matt Barnes, Chris Miller and Dan Flint....
You've got a lot to say for the one that walked away
I give, you take
That's the way it's always been
Oh, how do I know if I should stay or just go?
The bottom line is this way that I'll never know

Stay with me (stay with me, stay with me)
Stay with me, oh (a-whoa, a-whoa, a-whoa...)

You've got a lot to say for the one that pushed me away
I give, you take
Some things, they never change
Just change

Stay with me (stay with me, stay with me)
Stay with me

I never knew that I could be this way
I never knew that I could walk away

These things take time to grow
It's been said that time heals wounds
But no, I won't be controlled
And so the story goes

Stay with me (stay with me, stay with me)
Stay with me

And now I know that I can be this way
And now I know that I can walk away

    General Commentpretyyyy obvious what this one is about.

    'you've got a lot to say for the one that walked away
    i give, you take. that's the way it's always been'

    she's left him and she's annoyed at him, probably saying he was a crappy boyfriend etc. even though he's always given her what she's wanted. and she's taken it and never given back anything.

    'oh, how do i know if i should stay or just go?'

    he doesn't know if she's worth trying to get back or not.

    'the bottom line is this way that i'll never know'

    the way they are acting, arguing and everything. he's never going to find out if he should be fighting to get her back or not.

    'you've got a lot to say for the one that pushed me away'

    now he's saying that not only was it her fault, she actually PUSHED him away.

    'i give, you take. some things, they never change
    just change'

    he's given her everything, she takes it and returns nothing. and that's not going to change.
    and the 'just change' part means that he wants her to change.
