Pink Floyd Hey you Lyrics

Last updated: 06/26/2014 08:48:22 PM

Hey you, out there in the cold
Getting lonely, getting old
Can you feel me?
Hey you, standing in the aisles
With itchy feet and fading smiles
Can you feel me?
Hey you, dont help them to bury the light
Don't give in without a fight.

Hey you, out there on your own
Sitting naked by the phone
Would you touch me?
Hey you, with you ear against the wall
Waiting for someone to call out
Would you touch me?
Hey you, would you help me to carry the stone?
Open your heart, I'm coming home.

But it was only fantasy.
The wall was too high,
As you can see.
No matter how he tried,
He could not break free.
And the worms ate into his brain.

Hey you, out there on the road
always doing what you're told,
Can you help me?
Hey you, out there beyond the wall,
Breaking bottles in the hall,
Can you help me?
Hey you, don't tell me there's no hope at all
Together we stand, divided we fall.

Thanks to Angela for submitting Hey you Lyrics.

Hey You - Hey Jew | Reviewer: Anonymous | 6/26/14

how true is the rumor that the intended title of this piece was "Hey Jew", but was changed to Hey You for commercial reasons. I know Waters' dad died in WW2 which explains Another Brick in the Wall part 1. There is also a reference to Jews in the Thin ice part 2. I just don't understand why Waters wanted to call this song Hey Jew, maybe some older folks out there shed some info? thanks

this song | Reviewer: charl | 6/9/12

This song is about self isolation.the wall is a fabricated entity of our own minds in which we place ourselves as a defense mechanism so we do not get hurt,the lyrics in this song are a narration of hopelessness and loneliness.and I can relate with every word of it.

The Wall | Reviewer: BillBobBag | 1/11/12

While music means many things to many different people, I urge everyone to see the Roger Waters film, The Wall which is a tribute to the events that happened during his lifetime. The art presentation is iconic and represented on several Pink Floyd album covers. Waters' life was filled with trajedy and The Wall lays this idea out set to music from the album.

fantastic song | Reviewer: george britto | 1/3/12

I been hearing pink floyd for the last three decades when even I was not even having internet or do not even know what exactly the lyrics were. Thank God now I catch pink floyd with the lyrics and can follow them much better. Like Jimi Hendricks, clpaton, bob dylan, led Zepplin, dire straits and may more I listen to, pink floyd and a very special part to play in my life. It is just like taking me to an entirely different world of music. I will pass it on to the generation next through my son..already passed it through my nephew who is an addict of pink floyd now..This Indians special appreciation to High hopes and Hey You.

Hey you | Reviewer: Frank Bourji | 12/24/11

Well .. i just want to inform that the song " hey you " is not for people as my friend said above , but it is calling or talking to devil. " Hey you, standing in the aisles
With itchy feet and fading smiles
Can you feel me?
Hey you, dont help them to bury the light .. People who is going to bury the light of ur life ?? its the devil inside people .. it is the evil inside the humans creature :)

hey you | Reviewer: luis | 11/28/11

this song is sort of a prophetic song. it makes more sense today than when it first came out. the world has become this kind of society where you can not have your own thoughts, ideas, dreams or whatever...a small group of people who think they own the world, they do everything possible to dominate people's mind.

out-standing | Reviewer: fatima | 10/6/11

i personally believe that this song is the combination of love and hate. hate for all societies that dont allow people to9 talk and love for whom are looking for freedom .i hope to gain my freedom some day.

this song has a special meaning. | Reviewer: roxana | 4/19/11

"hey you" is about people in a society where they can't have their own idea"described as people behind the wall".but pink floyd tells them
"not to give in without a fight,not to bury the light"(which of course is the idea of freedom)
"sitting by the phone,waiting for someone to call out"(is about people not doing any thing to break free and always waiting for someone to follow,and here that one is pink floyd who calls people out by saying "hey you")
"its fantasy"no one can break free while "worms has eaten their brain"(they can't think for their own)also after this part pink floyd says"always doing what u r told"(they can't think their own)
at the end pink floyd asks people to help him to break free and that is where he tells them that they should stand by each other against the wall."Hey you, don't tell me there's no hope at all
Together we stand, divided we fall."

The Wall Plotline - Hey You | Reviewer: Mike | 11/13/10

Pink realises the mistake he made completely shunning society, and attempts to regain contact with the outside world. However, he cannot see or hear beyond the wall. Pink's call becomes more and more desperate as he begins to realize there is no escape.

Hey you | Reviewer: Ali Nawaz thaver | 10/15/10

Pink floyd is 1 of the most crazy and experimental band i have ever come across.. Their music nd lyrics both are awesome and this song hey you is simply awesome.. esp the lyrics " ur heart.. i'm coming home" ~~~~~~~♥♥

Tania (Uruguay) | Reviewer: Anonymous | 4/8/10

i think pink floyd is an exellent band, their music and lyric could carry me to another place and make feel better. This band is really different than others. And their music live for ever. Hey you is a clasic and one of their best songs.

Everything in the one song | Reviewer: ArdentAnarchY | 2/21/10

I don't need to explain this song to my friend. Because the song is complately clear if you want to understand. Some people of my country are not want to understand this song. Because they are only listen this song. I think, if you want to understand this song, you have to listen all song in "The Wall". There is a story in this album. And there is a lifestyle in this album. And "Hey You" is one part of this life.

Forever | Reviewer: Erodes | 12/4/09

I know Pink Floyd since 1987, when I saw the show Delicate Sound of Thunder. I simply loved "Comfortably Numb". Afterwards I started to know more Pink Floyd and this song is one of the best ones from the old times. A rare jewel, a classic forever!

Family Classic | Reviewer: Angie | 6/28/09

This song or rather this band has been passed down to me by my Aunt and Father. When I was just five and didn't know very much music, I knew I liked this band (and of course, Britney Spears. But THAT'S another story).

This is an absolutely amazing song.
The two simple words(Hey You) are used in an almost sarcastic way and when blended with the mellowly hypnotizing tune, the product is an irrestible classic.
