As Romeo is preparing to leave Juliet what argument does she use to convince him to stay?

It was the nightingale, and not the lark, That pierc'd the fearful hollow of thine ear; Nightly she sings on yond pomegranate tree: Believe me, love, it was the nightingale. Juliet tries to persuade Romeo that the lark he can hear singing (which means it is morning) is actually a nightingale (which sings at night) Yond light is not daylight, I know it, I: It is some meteor that the sun exhales To be to thee this night a torch-bearer And light thee on the way to Mantua: Therefore stay yet, thou need'st not to be gone. Juliet again tries to persuade Romeo that the light coming through the window is from a meteor and not the rising sun.
