Don't You Wanna Stay
Jason Aldean Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning | Line by Line Meaning

I really hate to let this moment go
Touching your skin and your hair falling slow
When a goodbye kiss, feels like this

Don't you wanna stay here a little while?
Don't you wanna hold each other tight?
Don't you wanna fall asleep with me tonight?
Don't you wanna stay here a little while?


We can make forever feel this way
Don't you wanna stay

Let's take it slow, I don't wanna move too fast
I don't wanna just make love, I wanna make love last
When your up this high, it's a sad goodbye

Don't you wanna stay here a little while?
Don't you wanna hold each other tight?
Don't you wanna fall asleep with me tonight?
Don't you wanna stay here a little while?
We can make forever feel this way
Don't you wanna stay?

Oh yeah
Oh, you feel so perfect, baby
Yeah, you feel so perfect, baby
Don't you wanna stay here a little while?

Don't you wanna stay here a little while?
Don't you wanna hold each other tight?
Don't you wanna fall asleep with me tonight?
Don't you wanna stay here a little while?
We can make forever feel this way
Don't you wanna stay, yeah?

Don't you wanna stay?

Yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah

Overall Meaning

The lyrics to Jason Aldean's song Don't You Wanna Stay tells the story of two lovers who do not want to depart from each other's presence. The first two lines express the reluctance to end a beautiful moment shared between the two of them. The writer is clearly captivated by his partner's physical beauty as he is "Touching your skin and your hair falling slow". He wishes for the moment to last forever as the goodbye kiss feels like much more than a mere goodbye.


The chorus of the song serves as an invitation to his lover as he urges her to stay a little while longer. The second verse sees the writer urging the lover to take things slow in the relationship. They have reached a point of heightened emotional attachment and he does not want to 'just make love' rather he wants to make their love last.


Throughout the song, we can observe the themes of love, longing, and attachment as the writer attempts to persuade his lover to stay with him. The song solidifies the idea that a beautiful moment shared between two lovers can indeed last forever.

This song literally stayed rent free in my head back in 2017 when it came out!!! I never thought I'd hear a duet between a country music singer and a pop star like Kelly Clarkson, but I loved their collaboration! We need more soulful, artistic, and well-done duets and musical crossovers like this

My husband and I were introduced one night by my uncle when he came to visit. We hit it off, we spent that night up talking the whole night through. He's never left. We have been together 38 yrs this December 17th
