"Stay the Night" as written by Mariah Carey, Thomas Randolph Bell, Linda Creed and Kanye Omari West....
It's seventy two degrees
Zero chance of rain
It's been a perfect day
We're all spinning on our heels
So far away from real
In California

We watched the sunset from my car
We all took it in
And by the time that it was dark
You and me had something, yeah!

And if this is what we've got
Then what we've got is gold
We're shining bright and I want you
I want you to know

The morning's on it's way
Our friends all say goodbye
There's nowhere else to go
I hope that you'll stay the night

Ooh, you'll stay the night
Ooh, yeah!

We've been singing Billie Jean
Mixin' vodka with caffeine
We've got strangers stopping by

And though you're out of tune
Girl you blow my mind, you do
And I'll say as I don't wanna say goodnight

If there's no quiet corner
To get to know each other
And there's no hurry
I'm a patient man as you'll discover

Cause if this is what we've got
Then what we've got is gold
We're shining bright and I want you
I want you to know

The morning's on it's way
Our friends all say goodbye
There's nowhere else to go
I hope that you'll stay the night
Ooh, you'll stay the night
Ooh, yeah!

Just like the song on my radio set
We'll share the shelter of my single bed
But it's a different tune that's stuck in my head
And it goes

If this is what we've got
Then what we've got is gold
We're shining bright and I want you
I want you to know

The morning's on it's way
Our friends all say goodbye
There's nowhere else to go
I hope that you'll stay the night

If this is what we've got
Then what we've got is gold
We're shining bright and I want you
I want you to know

The morning's on it's way
Our friends all say goodbye
There's nowhere else to go
I hope that you'll stay the night

    Song MeaningIt's about a boy who while out with his friends, has found the girl he is meant to be with. They have the prect day, and he simply doesnt want it to end. All their friends leave, and it is only them lef, and he doesn't want to her go, because he feels that nothing in the world can better what they have right there together. ITS CALLED LOVE

    love you guys <3

    General CommentSuch a sweet little love ditty.

    "There's no hurry I'm a patient man as you'll discover"

    Just makes my heart melt. Sweetness packaged up.

    Obviously though, a song that is meant to be a smash hit single to the deaf masses, so while it ties my emotions up, it really doesn't present me with anything to go "Wow" musically.
