Remember how you used to ummm,
You used to phone up and (oohhh)
You wouldn't say your name you, you'd just say Hey You

You know I see you on my blank sheet
Before I write or form oracle this situation yo,
My memories choke me and stain my pillow
As my voice becomes hollow
As I trace tear lines around this space that won't fill yo
I feel nothing but this way and
The emptiness stays and it's cluttered with a silence
That teases me it leads me on like it's gonna say,
Like it's gonna say

[Chorus:]
Hey You, I'm Sorry that I have to leave
I'll try to come back oohhh,
Hey You I'm sorry that I have to leave
I'll try to come back one day

You know yesterday I stood outside in the rain
In an attempt to dissolve away or just disappear
Or be gone be back or be
Just I try to see the point but I only see the pain
My dreams cry when they're slain
I regain consciousness to blurry vision
I try to listen out for whispers of

Hey You, I'm sorry that I have to leave
I'll try to come back oohhh,
Hey You I'm sorry that I have to leave
I'll try to come back one day

Rain Drops disguise my tears have gone
I want you to be here with me to
Stand by me
Said I can't help but to be selfish baby
Cause I don't wanna be alone

[Chorus]

Did I leave you behind or did you let me go
All I know is you're not here to say to me those special words (Hey You)
Time was once on our side but now it's against us
It parts us and we're not always (saints?)

[Chorus]

[Ad Lib and fade to the end]
