"Hey Lady" as written by and Clayton Stroope Scott Lee Jason....
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'm not vulnerable

[Chorus: ]
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

She screams for more
More than just some blue eyed metaphor
And the trouble is, the trouble is, she's always searching
The hour's late, don't wanna hear that it's all gonna end soon
No I'm not crazy I'm in control, and all of my friends still know

[Chorus: ]

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?

[Chorus: ]

    General Comment"she screams for more

    I love this. the blue eyed metaphor is that which represents every girls image of the "perfect man." I love that the girl in this song realizes it's not about the appearance, but the connection she longs to find with someone.

    General CommentI think that the girl thinks that there's so much more out there and she's giving up on the guy because she doesn't think that he's what she really wants and needs. But he's trying to tell her that he can be whatever she wants him to be.

    Song MeaningI think the song means that he's trying to find or figure out if she still has love for him. he says love is for everyone, he's not an exception. He wants her to not give up on him and stick through it. He's done waiting and fighting for another girl, he's found his true and only girl.

    I agree with robinsegg that the line...
    "she screams for more, more than just some blue-eyed metaphor"
    ...is great line. I love it too.

    General CommentThis song is so beautiful. I listened to it over and over again to get the meaning. The part about the hospital is not literal. The guy who is singing this song just wants the girl to know he loves her. She isn't sure if she can love him the way he loves her. The first time I listened to this song, I got the impression that this girl had been really hurt in past relationships, and maybe she is having trouble believing that this guy really does love her. I think her heart has been broken so badly that she is unsure if she can love the way she used to any more.

    General CommentI'm pretty sure he says "more simply" not "forceibly" in the bridge. It makes more sense if it were more simply not forceibly.

    General Comment...pretty sure the lady in this song must have been hurt by him in the past. It's always about timing, which was completely off. When she wanted to give it her all - he didn't. When he finally realized he was ready - she wasn't. she then kept him around for selfish reasons. Always looking for the next best thing instead of realizing what she had because at that point she already knew what he was capable of. At the end of the day, if you don't like to be alone and you're not completely comfortable with your relationship - you are always searching and never truly pleased. "the lady" then took him for granted, could never truly let him go, got him to love her and then broke his heart.

    This is not a romantic song, it's actually very sad with a lot of heart ache.

    General CommentDon't give up on me because i haven't given up on you. Basis in all relationships that are on the rocks. One person is 100% in it and the other person is 50/50. Exactly like my last relationship...it sucks to be in it all the way and to keep telling her to hold on things will get better.
