    "Stay With Me" by Sam Smith...what is he feeling?

    Hi,
    I googled for songs called Stay With Me. Now I remember hearing this before. I'm confused about these lyrics. Is the character starting an emotionally unhealthy relationship? Or is he just confused? Or what? I feel like I don't have quite enough information.

    Lyrics:
    Guess it's true
    I'm not good at a one night stand
    But I still need love 'cause I'm just a man
    These nights never seem to go to plan
    I don't want you to leave
    Will you hold my hand
    Oh, won't you stay with me?
    'Cause you're all I need
    This ain't love, it's clear to see
    But darling, stay with me
    Why am I so emotional?
    No, it's not a good look, gain some self control
    Deep down I know this never works
    But you could lay with me
    So it doesn't hurt
    Oh, won't you stay with me?
    'Cause you're all I need
    This ain't love, it's clear to see
    But darling, stay with me
    Oooh oh ooh oooh ooooh oh
    Oooh oh ooh oooh ooooh oh
    Oh, won't you stay with me?
    'Cause you're all I need
    This ain't love, it's clear to see
    But darling, stay with me
    Oh, wont you stay with me
    'Cause you're all I need
    This ain't love its clear to see
    But darling
    Stay with me

    You know, I actually used to be obsessed with Sam Smith about five years ago. I even thought I was " in love" with him and thought what a pity it was that he's/they're gay. Because otherwise I would have totally had a chance with him 😂 I used to play his music on repeat all the time. I was lucky I was able to get a ticket to his live concert that someone was re-selling. Otherwise the show was completely sold out.

    Anyway, so I'm pretty sure this song is about a one night stand?

    Basically I think he's saying he had a one night stand, but he's really lonely and wants company. So he's singing: " This ain't love, it's clear to see, but won't you stay with me". I think he's saying "just act like we're into each other and it wasn't just meaningless sex".

    I agree. Sounds like he's treating this encounter like a tylenol.

    I think he is feeling lonely. He just wants company. He feels hes is not good at one night stands and that he messes up that sort of thing, but he wants the intimacy with someone. Almost wishing he had someone to stay with him to be close to.

    Oh my God not Sam Smith - instead listen to anything by The Smiths! You’ll find some real lyrics right there ;)
