"Hello" as written by Lionel B. Richie and Lionel B. Richie....
I've been alone with you inside my mind
And in my dreams I've kissed your lips a thousand times
I sometimes see you pass outside my door
Hello, is it me you're looking for?

I can see it in your eyes
I can see it in your smile
You're all I've ever wanted, and my arms are open wide
'Cause you know just what to say
And you know just what to do
And I want to tell you so much, I love you

I long to see the sunlight in your hair
And tell you time and time again how much I care
Sometimes I feel my heart will overflow
Hello, I've just got to let you know

'Cause I wonder where you are
And I wonder what you do
Are you somewhere feeling lonely, or is someone loving you?
Tell me how to win your heart
For I haven't got a clue
But let me start by saying, I love you

Hello, is it me you're looking for?
'Cause I wonder where you are
And I wonder what you do
Are you somewhere feeling lonely, or is someone loving you?
Tell me how to win your heart
For I haven't got a clue
But let me start by saying I love you

    General CommentEspecially the part that goes: 'Cause, I wonder where you are
    And I wonder what you do
    Are you somewhere feeling lonely
    Or is someone loving you
    Tell me how to win your heart
    For I haven't got a clue
    But let me start by saying -
    I love you!

    General Commentdaydreamer, you appear to be the only person who really captured the essence of this song.. it's not an anthem for those who are just crushing. it's a lot more serious than that. he seems tortured by this loneliness that he can't express to this person.

    General CommentThis is indeed one of the saddest and most beautiful songs I have ever heard, and although I can appreciate the music video for being an innocent reflection of the story, I can't help but feel it's a naive reflection too. What we see is a teacher stalking his student.. and in the end she has made a bust of him in return - which seems like equal "stalkerish" behaviour to me. I guess they were made for each other. :)

    General CommentMy fiancee and I are wondering about having her walk down the isle to this song, however on listening to the lyrics closer perhaps it isn't appropriate for a wedding? Does anyone have an opinion/advice on this?

    General CommentI love this song! I believe it's about a man who loves a woman but is not sure how to tell her. I think she knows he loves her and by the end of the video she loves him
