There's a party upstairs

You can go if you want to

Where everybody knows what to do

what not to say

just how to move to make you stay

and if you do it too

you can fade away and

disappear on a giant wave

 

and every person on the street

is someone that you wanna meet

I'm never going home again

There's nothing there for me

 

It's what they want you to do
It's what they want you to do

and I can tell that you really wanna do it too

so go on your way

 

It's what they want you to do
It's what they want you to do

I know that you really wanna do it too

but don't lose your way

 

There's a party upstairs

You can go if you want to

Where everybody moves just like you

With a different name

they talk and laugh and dress the same

and if you do it too

you can fade away and lose your mind

never have to pay

 

and every person that you see

is someone that you wanna be

I'm never going home again

Don't come and look for me

 

It's what they want you to do
It's what they want you to do

and I can tell that you really wanna do it too

so go on your way

 

It's what they want you to do
It's what they want you to do

I know that you really wanna do it too

but don't lose your way

 

You can dance right through the danger

with a pack of wild strangers

Doesn't even matter where you are

 

It's what they want you to do
It's what they want you to do

and I can tell that you really wanna do it too

so go on your way

 

It's what they want you to do
It's what they want you to do

I know that you really wanna do it too

but don't lose your way

 

but don't lose your way

I hear:

 

"You can dance right through the danger

With a pack of wild strangers

Doesn't even matter where you are..."

 

I agree with everything else.

 

But who knows! Also, I think the title of "Party Upstairs" was confirmed via Jack's Instagram! "Stay" is still just a guess, though, I think!

This song makes me think about the strange relationship between being an individual and conforming. There is an aspect of being fully yourself that includes being influenced, shaped, and tailored by a group, who are all having the same effect on one another. But that's never all of anyone, there is no such thing as simply being a face in a crowd, because each person is still, well, a person! So you shouldn't lose your past, your unique qualities, or your volition just because you've found a crowd.

 

Anyway, I love the melody on this one, it's super catchy and fun to sing! I hope it makes its way onto an album someday soon!
