"Late Night" as written by and James Andrew Smith Yannis Barnabas Emanuel Philippakis....
Oh, I hope that you, somebody
Someone I could count
To pull me to my feet again
When I was in doubt

Oh now Mama, do you hear me?
I'm calling out your name
Oh now Mama, do you hear me?
I'm calling out your name
I'm calling out your name

I'm the last cowboy in this town
Empty veins and my plastic broken crown

They said I swam the sea that ran around
They said I once was lost but now I'm truly found

And I know the place another way
I feel, I feel no shame
Oh now Mama, do you hear my fear?
It's coming after me
I'm calling out your name
I'm calling out your name

Stay with me
Stay with me

Did you throw your heart away?
Oh I know just what I say
Did your phone cut in the way?
Being still downtown I say

And I know you ran away
Oh I know but I'm feeling okay
And I found love and fear wont go
And I found love and feeling wont go
See you walk away
Feeling okay now
Happy now?

Stay with me
Stay with me
Stay with me
Stay with me

    My InterpretationI think it's about not wanting someone who you once had a good relationship to leave you.

    My InterpretationI think it's about a relationship that once was good, but not 'enough' for the other person. Then he found another love, and later realize that the first one it's what he wants, not the new one. And now he's calling that first person.

    General CommentAbout growing up maybe, a coming of age thing? Being let down as a child and not being able to get over it even now. The first verse especially speaks strongly of childhood. And the build up is like it's built up his whole life until he's bitter and screaming.

    I love this song so much, it almost drives me crazy. I get lines from the screaming part stick in my head. Beautiful song, full of passion.
