Don't You Wanna Stay
Jay 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 you're on 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?

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?

Overall Meaning

The singer urges their partner to take it slow, to build something special that will last beyond just the physical pleasure of making love.


The lyrics paint a picture of a moment where time stands still, where the outside world melts away and all that matters is being with the person you love. It captures the feeling of wanting to freeze time and stay in that moment forever, to make it last and hold onto the joy it brings. It is a song that speaks to those who have experienced the beauty and pain of love, the desire to make it last and the fear of it slipping away.

[Intro: Jay Sean]
Baby, are you down, down, down, down, down?
Down, down
Even if the sky is falling down
Down, down (Ooh-ooh-ooh)

[Verse 1: Jay Sean]
You oughta know
Tonight is the night to let it go
Put on a show
I wanna see how you lose control
[Pre-Chorus: Jay Sean]
So leave it behind
'Cause we have a night to get away
So come on and fly with me
As we make our great escape

[Chorus: Jay Sean]
So baby, don't worry
You are my only
You won't be lonely
Even if the sky is falling down
You'll be my only
No need to worry
Baby, are you down, down, down, down, down?
(Down, down)
Baby, are you down, down, down, down, down?
(Down, down)
Even if the sky is falling down

[Verse 2: Jay Sean]
Just let it be
Come on and bring your body next to me
I'll take you away-ay
Turn this place into our private getaway

[Pre-Chorus: Jay Sean]
So leave it behind
'Cause we have a night to get away
So come on and fly with me
As we make our great escape
So why don't we run away?

[Chorus: Jay Sean with Lil Wayne]
Baby, don't worry (Away)
You are my only (Oh-ooh)
You won't be lonely (No)
Even if the sky is falling down
You'll be my only (Yeah)
No need to worry (No)
Baby, are you down, down, down, down, down?
(Down, down) Woo!
Baby, are you down, down, down, down, down?

[Verse 3: Lil Wayne]
Down, like she supposed to be, she gets down low for me
Down like her temperature, 'cause to me she zero degree
She cold, over-freeze, I got that girl from overseas
Now she my Miss America, now can I be her soldier, please?
I'm fightin' for this girl on the battlefield of love
Don't it look like baby cupid sending arrows from above?
Don't you ever leave the side of me, indefinitely, not probably
And honestly, I'm down like the economy
Yeah!!

[Chorus: Jay Sean, Lil Wayne]
Baby, don't worry
You are my only
You won't be lonely (Whoa!)

You'll be my only (No-ooh)
No need to worry (No-ooh)
Baby, are you down, down, down, down, down? (And the sky is falling down)
(Down, down) Mmh, down (Down, down)
Baby, are you down, down, down, down, down? (Are you down, are you down too?)
(Down, down) Ooh, no-ooh, and the sky is falling down
Even if the sky is falling down
[Outro: Jay Sean, Lil Wayne]
Ooh, no-ooh, and the sky is falling down
