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 said I'm not vulnerable

Hey lady, don't give up on me
Don't burn your heart out, love
'Till we're ash over seas
Hey lady, 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
And the hours late, don't wanna hear
That it's all gonna end soon
No I'm not crazy, I'm in control,
Yeah, and all of my friends still know

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

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?

And hey lady, don't give up on me
Don't burn your heart out, love
'Till we're ash over seas
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...

    I read an article where scott jason told what it was about. He said he was dating this girl but he had a lot of other stuff going on in his life at the time and wasn't paying much attention to her, so she started seeing someone else, she ended up getting pregnant by this other guy and it made him realize what he'd lost and could have had... Said it totally broke his heart.
    In another interview he didn't give much detail and just talked about how the song is about how people are attracted to the fantasy of what they don't have, and then when they get it, it's not as interesting as it was before you had it... Sort of like a... Grass is always greener on the other side sort of thing. You think you know what you want until it happens, and then it's not as great as you thought it'd be.

    Hey lady simply is about a realationship. The girl is young and a free spirit and wants to go off and explore the world and other relationships, even thought she's telling her boyfriend that she loves him so so much. This song describes me perfectly at the moment. I can relate to it perfectly. (':

    The song is about a guy who is madly in love with a girl who always more and the guy doesn't wan to believe that she might leave

    I think this song is about a girl that gets her heart broken so many times that she thinks it will get broken again so she want's to give up on this one guy but he loves her and doesn't want to lose her.

    I think this song may be about a girl who keeps getting her broken heart and once she finally finds a guy who wants to stay with her she doesn't think she can handle it. Maybe she's suicidal.
