Stay the Night
Zedd Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

I know that we are upside down
So hold your tongue and hear me out
I know that we were made to break so what? I don't mind

You kill the lights, I'll draw the blinds
Don't dull the sparkle in your eyes
I know that we were made to break so what? I don't mind
Are you gonna stay the night
Are you gonna stay the night
Oh oh oh oh, are you gonna stay the night

Are you gonna stay the night
Doesn't mean we're bound for life
So oh oh oh, are you gonna stay the night

Are you gonna stay the night
Doesn't mean we're bound for life
So oh oh oh, are you gonna stay the night

I am fire gasoline,
Come pour yourself all over me
We'll let this place go down in flames only one more time

You kill the lights, I'll draw the blinds
Don't dull the sparkle in your eyes
I know that we were made to break
So what? I don't mind

Are you gonna stay the night
Are you gonna stay the night
Oh oh oh oh, are you gonna stay the night

Are you gonna stay the night
Doesn't mean we're bound for life
So oh oh oh, are you gonna stay the night (Night)

Are you gonna stay the night

Are you gonna stay the night
Doesn't mean we're bound for life
So oh oh oh, are you gonna stay the night

(Are you gonna stay the night)




(Are you gonna stay the night)
(Oh oh oh oh, are you gonna stay the night)

Overall Meaning

The lyrics of Zedd's song "Stay The Night" revolve around the theme of two individuals being aware of their relationship being unconventional, but not caring about their differences because of the intense attraction they feel towards each other. The opening lines "I know that we are upside down, so hold your tongue and hear me out" suggest that their relationship is against societal norms, and that they both are aware of it. However, they choose to ignore it and continue with their passionate encounters. The following lines repeat the phrase "I know that we were made to break so what? I don't mind" further emphasize the idea that they are aware of the temporary nature of their relationship.


The chorus then poses the question of whether the other individual will stay the night, indicating that they are both consenting adults who are fully available to engage in a physical relationship. The phrase "doesn't mean we're bound for life" reiterates that the relationship is casual and non-committal. The bridge "I am fire gasoline, come pour yourself all over me, we'll let this place go down in flames only one more time" reveals the intense desire and passion they have for each other, and their willingness to engage in risky behavior to indulge their physical desires. The lyrics illustrate the idea of embracing the momentary thrill of a fiery, passionate relationship despite its inevitability to end.

"Stay The Night"
(with Hayley Williams of Paramore)

[Hayley Williams]
I know that we are upside down
So hold your tongue and hear me out
I know that we were made to break
So what? I don't mind

You cue the lights, I'll draw the blinds
Don't dull the sparkle in your eyes
I know that we were made to break
So what? I don't mind

Are you gonna stay the night?
Are you gonna stay the night?
Oh oh oh, are you gonna stay the night?

Are you gonna stay the night?
Doesn't mean we're bound for life
So oh oh oh, are you gonna stay the night?

[Beat break]

Are you gonna stay the night?
Doesn't mean we're bound for life
So oh oh, are you gonna stay the night?

I am a fire, gasoline,
Come pour yourself all over me
We'll let this place go down in flames only one more time

You cue the lights, I'll draw the blinds
Don't dull the sparkle in your eyes
I know that we were made to break
So what? I don't mind

Are you gonna stay the night?
Are you gonna stay the night?
Oh oh oh, are you gonna stay the night?

Are you gonna stay the night? (we get burned!)
Doesn't mean we're bound for life (we never learn!)
So oh oh, are you gonna stay the night?
Night night night night night...

[Beat break]

ARE YOU GONNA STAY THE NIGHT?!

[Beat break]

Are you gonna stay the night?
Doesn't mean we're bound for life
So oh oh, are you gonna stay the night?

[Zedd:]
Are you gonna stay the night?
Are you gonna stay the night?
Oh oh oh oh.
Are you gonna stay the night?
