Song Lyric Sunday – Stay by Mayday Parade

As promised, here is the second song that made me cry last week. I hope you have some Kleenex handy…

I love this song, but it didn’t ever make me cry until I saw the video. I suppose I never considered that it could go a bit deeper and when someone says “please stay” they aren’t just talking about staying in a relationship. It could be they are saying please don’t die, which brings it to a whole new level.

I love Mayday Parade. It has always been one of those bands, though, that I don’t really think about until they start playing on my iPod when I’m running or when they happen to play during a long shuffle of my favorite tunes. And I have a hard time picking just one song that I like. I honestly like every song on the one album I have.

Favorite line: “And I’d be blessed by the light of your company slowly lifting me to somewhere new.”

I hope you enjoy this installment of Song Lyric Sunday. Feel free to read the rules below and post your own.

Stay by Mayday Parade
Lyrics found at AZLyrics

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
