Hey Lady

Album: Thriving Ivory (2008)
  • She checks her pulse, gotta know if her heart's still beating
    And the hospital's, not far if anything should happen here

    She's bored in a week, big dreams but nothing material
    And I refuse to believe that love is for the weak
    I'm not vulnerable

    [Chorus: ]
    Hey lady, don't give up on me
    Don't burn your heart out love
    Till we're ash over seas
    Hey lady, said I don't wanna fight
    Like pretty girls need cowboys
    I need you here tonight

    She screams for more
    More than just some blue eyed metaphor
    And the trouble is, the trouble is, she's always searching
    The hour's late, don't wanna hear that it's all gonna end soon
    No I'm not crazy I'm in control, and all of my friends still know

    [Chorus: ]

    I'm on one knee, lover please
    How can I put it more simply?
    And I wait, for your invitation
    And I'm so so so, so over waiting
    I'm on one knee, lover please
    How can I put it more simply?
