"Don't you wanna stay" sung by the beautiful and talented Kelly Clarkson and the handsome American singer Jason Aldean was recorded and released in November 2010.
The song reached great commercial success in the US, peaking at number one on the Billboard Hot Country Songs. It became Jason's 5th number one single and Clarkson's 1st number one single on the Billboard Hot Country Songs,
This is one of the most beautiful country ballads of all time for me. The writers wanted to pen down a song with the thought of "what two people in love would really say to each other in everyday life."
They didn't want it to be too over-the-top or gooey kind of romance. They wanted it to be realistic - stuff that you would actually say to each other in real life.
"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?"
I tried to read and look deeper into the lyrics and meaning of this song. Its easy to see that this two lovers don't wanna leave each others side, they want to be together forever. They want to do everything with each other and share that special memories.
This song made me think of my mom. Yes, this is a love song for a boy and a girl. But I think this can be based on any relationship.
As I grow older, I keep thinking about the future and how I someday soon have to leave my nest and spread my wings and go start my own life and love story. My mom and I share a very special Mom & Daughter Relationship and she is like my best friend. When i read this chorus - it is exactly what I want to tell her every time I have to leave her side, because I remember the days so clearly when I was little and I use to jump on her lap and hold her tight, or fall asleep next to her at night when I was scared.
Just as this two lovers don't want to leave each others side and share every memory together - I also sometimes just want to stay - stay next to my mom's side and share every second and happy memory with her.
"I really hate to let this moment go, Touching your skin, and your hair falling slow" It reminds me of her playing with my hair until I fall asleep on her lap - and I will always cherish this memories. Every goodbye kiss is getting harder - but I know I will always have my mom by my side. No matter where I am, I will always be able to share my memories with her - even though its maybe going to be over a phone or through pictures.
So mom, this one is for you. I love you.
