If I could give you all the things you've been denied
Would it change you?
Would you feel alive?
But all that's left now are these words that I've been trying to say to you now
And together we'll get by somehow
And all you ever wanted was someone to find
The truth you hide from everyone deep inside

Hey ya, hey ya
You're the only one I want
Hey ya, hey ya

I would drown to save you from the sinking thoughts you feel
And I love you just the same
So don't you ever feel ashamed
Cause we all get tired of fighting just to feel like we belong
And I know you feel forgotten
But I've been here all along to say
All you ever wanted was someone to find
The truth you hide from everyone deep inside

Hey ya, hey ya
You're the only one I want
Hey ya, hey ya
Hey ya, hey ya
You're the only one I want
Hey ya, hey ya

And you hide yourself so deep inside
Will I ever see, ever see you
Now I'm the one who's been denied
But I believe in you
Believe in you

Hey ya, hey ya
You're the only one I want
Hey ya, hey ya

    In my opinion, it is a song for a woman that has either: broken up with you and you're trying to fix things, or, trying to get the attention of that woman that you hold in your heart so dearly, that believe's in everyone else apart from herself. Hopefully, in either case, he gets the girl :)
