"Stay" as written by and Diego Garcia....
I need some time just deliver the things that I need for now
Everything that I feel's like a warm deep calm casting over me
And it's taking me to somewhere new

If you believe that everything's alright
You won't be all alone tonight
And I'd be blessed by the light of your company,
Slowly lifting me to somewhere new

Oh can you tell, I haven't slept very well
Since the last time that we spoke, you said
"Please understand if I see you again don't even say hello."


What a night it is, when you live like this
And you're coming up beneath the clouds,
Don't let me down
All the love's still there
I just don't know what to do with it now
You know, I still can't believe we both did some things
I don't even wanna think about
Just say you love me and I'll say "I'm sorry,
I don't want anybody else to feel this way"
No, no, no

Oh can you tell, I haven't slept very well
Since the last time that we spoke, I said
"Please understand I've been drinking again,
And all I do is hope"

Please stay
Please stay

I'll admit I was wrong about everything
Cause I'm high and I don't wanna come down
All the fun that we had on your mothers couch,
I don't even wanna think about

I'm not strong enough for the both of us
What was I supposed to do
You know I love you

Please just stay

    My InterpretationIt definitely sounds like a relationship that was very passionate but ended badly without any type of closure on either end and he's writing this song as sort of an apology/an "I miss you and I'm sorry". It sounds like he just wants to go back to the way things were before they fell apart. Whatever the case, it's a beautiful song and my favorite from the new album :)

    My InterpretationThis song feels like this guy had a long commitment with a girl, but now he's having a hard time getting over her, so he shuts off his feelings until he has more control of them. When he does manage to gain control, he finds relief, but then his sadness comes up again and he misses her. He states that he's willing to take her back if she is willing as well, but instead she tells him she's cutting off contact. Next he explains how he felt he was getting better and her actions are threatening to dampen his mood. He still loves her but has no outlet and regrets the original reason they broke up, and then he restates he'd take her back and explains what's become of him and remembers their time together.

    Song MeaningIf you watch the music video for "Oh Well, Oh Well" and then you watch the music video for this, it makes a lot of sense. In "Oh Well, Oh Well" Derek's girlfriend tries to commit suicide, and in "Stay" is what happens during the ambulance ride to the hospital.

    My InterpretationWhen I first heard it, to me, it sounded and looked like he was hoping that she would stay because she attempted suicide. I don't know if that's the real meaning. But to me, it is

    My InterpretationThis song really speaks to me right now. My situation is that I was in a relationship with my ex-boyfriend for almost 4 years. I put 150% into the relationship, but I didn't feel like I was getting any more that 40% back in return. He wasn't mean to me, and we never fought, but there was no spark, and I felt that we were just in two separate places in our lives. Both of our hearts broke when I broke up with him. I was comfortable with him, and it would have been easier to stay with him, but when it came down to it, I wasn't happy. I felt so bad for hurting him when I broke up with him, and I think about him every day. I still feel bad, and I to talk to him so badly and tell him about what's going on in my life, but I know that I threw that all away when I left him. I actually tried talking to him since then, but he has barely responded, and he's rightfully bitter about the situation. A part of me wishes I could still have him in my life somehow, but I know that it's never going to happen.

    General CommentThis song for me personally is very powerful. I know it can be interpreted many different ways. But for me personally it represents drug addiction. They love each other are at the point where they can't go on and he's begging her to stay but also in a way begging her to leave because he can't keep going with how things are.
