"Stay" as written by Theo Hutchcraft and Adam Anderson....
My whole life waiting for the right time
To tell you how I feel
Know I try to tell you that I need you.
Here I am without you
I feel so lost but what can I do?
'Cause I know this love seems real
But I don't know how to feel.

We say goodbye in the pouring rain
And I break down as you walk away.
Stay, stay.
'Cause all my life I felt this way
But I could never find the words to say
Stay, stay.

Alright, everything is alright
Since you came along
And before you
I had nowhere to run to
Nothing to hold on to
I came so close to giving it up.
And I wonder if you know
How it feels to let you go?

You say goodbye in the pouring rain
And I break down as you walk away.
Stay, stay.
'Cause all my life I felt this way
But I could never find the words to say
Stay, stay.

So you change your mind
And say you're mine.
Don't leave tonight
Stay.

Say goodbye in the pouring rain
And I break down as you walk away.
Stay, stay.
'Cause all my life I felt this way
But I could never find the words to say
Stay, stay.

Stay with me, stay with me,
Stay with me, stay with me,
Stay, stay, stay, stay with me.

    General CommentI think this song is fairly self explanatory. She is leaving him and he doesn't want her to go... STAY! Maybe before this, he didn't have enough courage to express his love to her properly and that's why she left.

    "Alright, everything is alright
    Since you came along
    And before you
    I had nowhere to run to
    Nothing to hold on to
    I came so close to giving it up."
    ~I think this verse sounds like it is describing a battle with suicide. When they were together, she gave him something to live for, a reason to hold on.

    For days and days after first hearing this song, I've had Theo's voice running through my head and usually that annoys me, but I really, really, really love Theo and Adam and HURTS!

    General CommentWow.. This song gives me goose bumps.. The first time i heard it i burst out in tears.. Its such an emotional song.. Begging someone you love and need, to stay with you.. I love the desperation in his voice.. He sounds as if he's world will end if this woman leaves him..every part of his being depends on her being present.. I love Hurts.. They are definatly a band to look out for in the future.. Their sound and lyrics are touching, deeping and just plain amazing..
