"Don't You Wanna Stay?" as written by Jason Sellers, Paul Jenkins and Andy Gibson....
I really hate to let this moment go
Touching your skin and your hair falling slow
When a goodbye kiss, feels like this

Don't you wanna stay here a little while
Don't you wanna hold each other tight
Don't you wanna fall asleep with me tonight
Don't you wanna stay here a little while
We can make forever feel this way
Don't you wanna stay

Let's take it slow I don't wanna move too fast
I don't wanna just make love, I wanna make love last

When your up this high, it's a sad goodbye

Don't you wanna stay here a little while
Don't you wanna hold each other tight
Don't you wanna fall asleep with me tonight
Don't you wanna stay here a little while
We can make forever feel this way
Don't you wanna stay

Oh yeah!
Oh you feel so perfect baby
Don't you wanna stay here a little while

Don't you wanna stay here a little while
Don't you wanna hold each other tight
Don't you wanna fall asleep with me tonight
Don't you wanna stay here a little while
We can make forever feel this way
Don't you wanna stay

Don't you wanna stay
Yeah yeah yeah, yeah yeah yeah

    Song MeaningIt's pretty self-explanitory and could be about the couple just coming together, or being reunited after being apart.

    I really hate to let this moment go
    Touching your skin and your hair falling slow
    When a goodbye kiss feels like this

    They have to leave each other, but they don't want to. They want to stay together forever.

    Don't you wanna stay here a little while?
    We could make forever feel this way
    Don't you wanna stay?

    General CommentGreat song; pretty self-explanatory - makes me think about falling in love and never wanting to be away from that person.

    My InterpretationI think this song is about reuniting with an ex and having a one night stand. They both want to get back together and make it work.
