Everybody wants and needs to be loved , but everybody knows that most love affairs end in heartache. So why would anyone want to feel love?

Because love is God’s most precious gift to humanity that’s why.

In Sam Smith’s song “Stay With Me” he confides in a lover:

“Guess it’s true , I’m not good at a one night stand but I still need love cause I’m just a man”

Showing his vulnerability in a lonely moment because he knows there is nothing more beautiful than love. He continues:

“These nights never seem to go to plan , I don’t want you to leave, will you take my hand? WONT YOU STAY WITH ME.”

Giving in to the desires of wanting to feel the emotional power that love brings. It’s clear that Sam is being honest and transparent about his uncomfortable yet uncontrollable emotion deep deep within his soul. Ever so willing to put his fears of heartache away , if only just for a short time , just for a chance to feel the ever so intoxicating emotion we call love he bellows “WONT YOU STAY WITH ME” he pleads “CAUSE YOU’RE ALL I NEED” he professes “THIS AINT LOVE IT’S CLEAR TO SEE BUT DARLING STAY WITH ME.”
