Hey Lyrics - Red Hot Chili Peppers

Review The Song (10)



Won't somebody come along
And teach me how to keep it alive
To survive

Come along and show me something
That I never knew in your eyes
Take away the tourniquet

I used to be so full of my confidence
I used to know just what I wanted and just where to go
More than ever I could use a coincidence
But now I walk alone and talk about it when I know

Hey awe how long
I guess I oughta walk away
Hey awe yeah so long
Whatcha gonna do today?

I don't wannt to have to but I will
If that's what I'm supposed to do
sponsored links
We don't wanna set up for the kill
But that's what I'm about to do

Later on I'll cut you off
When you're screaming into the phone
Hard to own

Anyway I want to let you know
That everything is on hold
What you gonna do to me

You used to be so warm and affectionate
All the little things I used to hear my fairy say
But now you're quick to get into your regret
Take a fall and now you got to give it all away

Hey awe how long
I guess I oughta walk away
Hey awe yeah so long
Whatcha gonna do today?

I don't wannt to have to but I will
If that's what I'm supposed to do
We don't wanna set up for the kill
But that's what I'm about to do

I don't wannt to have to but I will
If that's what I'm supposed to do
We don't wanna set up for the kill
But that's what I'm about to do

Hey, what would you say if I stay
Stay for a while if I may
Say it again and I'll come around
But not for the last time
Hey, what would you say if I change
Change everything but my name
Play it again and I'll come around, come around
But not for the last time, not for the last time

You used to be so warm and affectionate
I used to know just what I wanted and just where to go
And now you're quick to get into your regret
But now I walk alone and talk about it when I know

Hey awe how long
I guess I oughta walk away
Hey awe yeah so long
Whatcha gonna do today?

Hey awe how long
I guess I oughta walk away
Hey awe yeah so long
Whatcha gonna do today?

Just an amazing song | Reviewer: Tess :D | 10/22/14

Hey! (lol)
I'm just addicted to this song... that's just all I want to say, I think, bcause this song takes you to a place you don't want to be, but you do, I just can't discribe what I'm feeling bcause it's all so frking complicated and shit... but if you're going through a breakup, please listen this song, it will help you forget about that person... I could know bcause I did the same thing.. :D
Goodbye,
see you maybe..
P.S sorry for my shitty English, I'm from the Netherlands.. ^^

It seems to me that he sings his feelings, and there's tons of emotion in that, but the guitar really sets the tone of how a talk, or fight went. In the guitar solo near the end it really shows how some might stumble over there words in a situaton like that.

Relationships | Reviewer: Deb | 8/6/10

LOVE this song. Beautiful melody and simple, HONEST lyrics. To me, though it is certainly not about Anthony's relationship wih any woman. It is about his relationship/struggle with drugs. My first clue is the line, "Take away the tourniquet." Also, the best book I ever read is "Scar Tissue", Anthony's biography in which he reveals all, as you would expect from him.

hey | Reviewer: derek | 2/20/10

I love how Anthony has the guts to sing exactly what he feels. He also writes his feelings in an indirect artistic way. He's as real as you get.

This song describes a place many people have been including myself. When your partner falls out of love with you, and you are devistated because so much of you're confidence was based on how that person viewed you. When any relationship gets to that place it's over even if you don't want to admit it, or can't admit it. This is that point of the relationship. The pure pain, and expressed so well.

Sleeping song | Reviewer: Mark-Eoin Delaney | 11/21/09

Don't ask me why but besides being a great song packed with emotion and a message it seems to work very soothing 2

It rid me of my issues with sleeping

This song The infinite repeat button a comfortable volume lvl
and you'll have a better sleep then you could ever imagine

Feelings | Reviewer: AviatorGirl | 10/10/09

Packed of emotion...yes, well said.
But for me the song isn't beautiful just because he is suffering. It's beautiful because Anthony - yes, this strong, crazy, shellow, never regreting Anthony - decides to change for a woman he loves. He is not angry, he doesn't say "how could I ever kiss that b***h" like in No Chump Love Sucker. He just regrets everything he did and he says that he would do everything just to come back to her. Maybe this song isn't one of the greatest ever written but it shows how deeply can Anthony love

perfect | Reviewer: Mike Littoris | 9/11/09

"This song is just a twisted web of emotion. Confusion, fear, regret, grief...Too many too name. It really does a great job of taking your mind and slapping it right there in Anthony's situation. Close your eyes and concentrate on the lyrics, and you'll see.

I'm not sure if I can begin to explain how much I love this song....It simply has so much emotion packed into such a simple musical concept. The Guitar solo has more feeling than anything I've ever heard before. I can't get enough of this. Flea's Bass part is something I love as well. It's so simple, but it has a touch of dissonance to create the perfect amount of energy to keep the song interesting. The lyrics are what I noticed last in this song, but they definitely don't fall short of anything Flea or John do....This song is obviously about some sort of failing relationship, a painful break-up. A relationship that he just doesn't want to give up on...It's worth saving even though it seems almost hopeless. It seems like this relationship was one in which he was planning a bright future for. He had everything he needed to live happily, but things changed one day.. She wasn't giving him the same love or affection that she used to, and it's killing him inside."

this really is simply a great summary of the song. well done man

song | Reviewer: Anonymous | 5/2/09

...."Hey" This song sorta takes ya on a journey. Like through a city on a rainy day feeling. Like if u think about it it's eryodic. It's something tht just pops out at ya & gives you a calming feeling wen things are bad. It's like your at the beach on a rainy day almost. But, in a good way....But, yh it's sorta about a realationship gone amok. Simply put. One of the best RHCP song off ov Stadium Arcadium & of all time.

beautiful song | Reviewer: amanda | 10/5/07

the lyrics succinctly speak of a relationship slowly falling apart - often the most painful type of breakup because of its drawn-out up&down day-after-day nature. the guitar solo speaks volumes to me. i've never heard that style guitar be so emotion-packed before in my life. it compliments the theme of the lyrics by worlessly adding that extra effect that really draws the song together. absolutely genius.
