Stay The Night
Egzod Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

I've paid the price
You don't wanna carry me no more
You don't wanna stare into my core
Or make me whole

You can't fix all the fissures in my form
So paint me a picture with your warmth
Or let me go - or let me go

Is it so wrong to wanna hold on?
To wanna go through the motions? Oh god
I wanna turn back time with my whole heart - so long
If only you could stay the night

If only you could stay the night
If only you could stay the night
If only you could stay the night
If only you could stay the night

I've paid the price
I don't want your sympathy no more
I just want to sink into your soul
cnd make you whole

I swear you'd say nothing of the sort
But I don't wanna run from what was born
Before the throes

Before the ghosts
Before we grow apart
cnd float apart
clone again
I know we can - I know we can
I know we can repent

Is it so wrong to wanna hold on?
To wanna go through the motions? Oh god
I wanna turn back time with my whole heart - so long
If only you could stay the night

If only you could stay the night
If only you could stay the night




If only you could stay the night
If only you could stay the night

Overall Meaning

In Egzod's song "Stay The Night," the lyrics explore themes of longing, regret, and the desire for emotional connection. The singer expresses their longing for someone to stay with them, to stare into their core, and to make them feel complete. However, they acknowledge that the other person may not be able to fix their brokenness or fill the hollow spaces within them. They yearn for a warmth and intimacy that can either be provided by the other person or by letting them go entirely.


The lyrics also touch on the idea of wanting to hold on to a relationship and go through the motions, even though they are aware that time cannot be reversed. They hope for a chance to turn back time and salvage what once was, but they are aware that it may not be possible. The repetition of the line "if only you could stay the night" reflects this longing and the hope for one more moment of connection.


Line by Line Meaning

I've paid the price
I have suffered the consequences


You don't wanna carry me no more
You no longer want to support me


You don't wanna stare into my core
You are unwilling to explore the depths of my being


Or make me whole
Or help me feel complete


You can't fix all the fissures in my form
You are unable to mend all the cracks in my existence


So paint me a picture with your warmth
Instead, provide me with comfort and love


Or let me go - or let me go
Or release me from this attachment - let me move on


Is it so wrong to wanna hold on?
Is it unreasonable to desire to hold onto something?


To wanna go through the motions? Oh god

I wanna turn back time with my whole heart - so long
I yearn to reverse the passage of time with all my being - farewell


If only you could stay the night
If only you could remain in my presence during the night


I don't want your sympathy no more
I no longer desire your pity


I just want to sink into your soul
I simply want to deeply connect with your essence


And make you whole
And help you feel complete


I swear you'd say nothing of the sort
I believe you would never speak in such a way


But I don't wanna run from what was born
But I do not want to avoid or escape from what was created


Before the throes
Prior to the intense hardships


Before the ghosts
Before the haunting memories


Before we grow apart
Before we drift away from each other


And float apart
And separate, drifting away like floating objects


Clone again
Reproduce and recreate the past


I know we can - I know we can
I am certain we have the ability - I am certain


I know we can repent
I know we can make amends and seek forgiveness
