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."

Please

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
Whoa-oh

Please just stay
Stay

    You know, I still can't believe we both did some things.
    I don't even want to think about.
    Just say you love me and I'll say "I'm sorry,
    I don't want anybody else to feel this way".

    The meaning to this song is about a guy and a girl, who are having relationship issues. They love each other, but maybe they are broken to a point where breaking up is an option. This song is saying "hey, step back. We can give this another try. "
    "if you believe everything's all right, then you won't be all alone tonight and i'd be blessed by the light of your company" if she believes things can work, then they'll still be together. "oh, can you tell that i haven't slept very well since the last time that we spoke" he misses her. "please understand if i see you again, don't even say hello" she is heart broken. She knows she still has feelings for him, but maybe she believes that this is the best way. "all the love's still there, i just don't know what to do with it now" he can't push off his feelings for her. He loves her, and he still feels it. "you know, i still can't believe we both did somethings that o don't even want to think about" the things that took a toll on the relationship. "just say you love me and i'll say 'i'm sorry, i don't want anybody else to feel this way'" he wants to hear those three words. He doesn't wish the pain he is feeling on his enemies. It's that bad. "i'll admit, i was wrong about everything" trying to fix the fights. "i'm not strong enough for the both of us" he needs her. "what was i supposed to do? You know i love you you... " maybe he suggested the break up. Maybe he started a fight. He maybe needed to feel what she felt. "
    "please... Stay" he's obviously begging for another chance.

    This song describes me. So me and my gf have a happy relationship, one day she called me and her parents found out we had s** and she was so pressured by her family that she told me she was attempting suicide. I immediately called the ambulance and I stayed on the phone as she drifted away. (everything that I feel is like a warm deep calm passing over me) is her dying or drifting away. She told me everything will be alright, and she wanted me to visit her, I told her I would try my hardest to see her and I.
