How much would you bet
That if I tried hard enough
I would spontaneously combust
I wish I could disappear
and run away from all of my fears
I think I'm coming undone

So stay the night
I promise that I won't bite
'Cause without you there
I don't think I could close my eyes

How do I end up this way
A constant knot in my gut
Tied with uncertainty and with lust
A classic case I suppose
A haunted man who can't out run his ghosts
They're in my skin and my bones

So stay the night
I promise that I won't bite
'Cause without you there
I don't think I could close my eyes

And now I sing...

    Someone lonely who is longing for another. Maybe a crush or an unrequited love. Or maybe someone who is already committed to another person but is lusting after someone else and doesn't know what to do with the feelings.

    At the end of the day, you have the one you love and who loves you, to be there when no one else is.

    The singer wants someone he loves to stay the night. Not spend the night as in having sex or anything along tose lines. He just wants his love there so he can sleep .
