... hey you

Hey you,
I never thought I would surrender.
I still want to
See if I could befriend her.
Maybe it's true,
You were just some kind of pretender.
I don't know you,
And I let my chance pass.
I know as well as you
It was the last.

Hey you,
Could you tell me what I want to know?
And do you
Leave behind the lazy and the slow?
Can I find you
Way down deep in Mexico?
Hey you,
I want to take back what I said
Lying asleep in my bed.

Hey you,
Will I ever hear your voice again?
Won't you even be my friend?
