"Stay" as written by Jud Joseph Friedman, Allan Rich and Jamie Houston....
If this world is growing thin
And you're thinking of escape
I'll go anywhere with you
Just wrap me up in chains
But if you try to go alone
Don't think I'll understand

Stay with me
In the silence of your room
In the darkness of your dreams
You must only think of me
There can be no in between
When your pride is on the floor
I'll make you beg for more
Oh oh oh

Stay with me
You better hope and pray
That you make it safe back
To your own world
You better hope and pray
That you wake one day
In your own world
Cause when you sleep at night
They don't hear your cries
In your own world
Only time will tell
If you can break the spell back
In your own world

Ah
Stay with me
Stay with me
Stay
Stay with me
Ah
Stay Stay Stay
Stay with me

    General Commentaccording to the video i believe the singer wants her lover to stay in a bad relationship but she knows if they do not make changes and show her true self in the relationship it will not work. Great point but bad acting in video.

    General Commentthe song is about the beloved husband who is sick. He needn't be in a coma, he could have any other serious permanent disease. The physical sick is a narcissist asking his wife not to leave him and dedicate her life to him. Of course, the wife is a co-narcissist and enjoys the fame and great fortune ( the good money) her sick husband provides. the wife is a weak and submissive person, although she may see things otherwise, in short she's in great denial. What proves the husband to be narcissistic is the negativity: " if the world is wearing thin.. " when your pride is on the floor , I'll make you beg for more...."
    The other woman, who looks like a witch, is actually the smart and beautiful woman that knows the wisdom;meaning, the sick dynamics between husband and wife. She reminds us, how it is difficult to let go of the narcissist in our life, due to their great charisma and self-charm. Therefore, she prays for the wife " to escape safely to her OWN world.... And she keeps praying till the end of the song.....

    My InterpretationI feel like the song is about someone talking a lover/loved one/friend out of suicide. "If this world is wearing thin, and you're thinking of escape" referrs to the desire to die. "If you try to go alone, dont think I'll understand" is the anger that the lover/loved one/friend of the suicidal person feels. "in the silence of your room, in the darkness of your dreams" is talking about the depression and lonliness a suicidal person feels.

    General CommentI think this song is from a woman singing to her dying lover who is in a coma to not leave her. She is willing to die with him if he won't go without her. While the second woman represents either death, or just the torture he is experiencing by being trapped in this quasi limbo he's in. Great song. I think this band would have been much bigger if they had debuted about 10 years later.
