"Hey You" as written by Paula Winger and Kip Winger....
You always see the beauty in a passing cloud
You're the one who fixes me when I'm down
And you don't think twice, do you?
You could find one diamond in a mine
But you're the one whose shining from miles around
And you don't see that, do you

And when the day is done
Do you have the feeling?
That you're all alone
Giving up on your own dreams

Hey you, it's your turn to
See the beauty in yourself
Just like you tell everyone else
Hey you, am I getting through?
If you would only see yourself
The way you see everyone else
The way I always see you
I see you, hey you, hey you

If you fly like Icarus to the edge
I could be there talking you back
Don't forget, don't got there, do you?

And when the night is long
Do you wake up hearing
A voice inside
Calling out for your dreams

Hey you, it's your turn to
See the beauty in yourself
Just like you tell everyone else
Hey you, am I getting through?
If you would only see yourself
The way you see everyone else
The way I always see you
I see you, hey you

Hiding in the background
Thinking you're not pretty
Holding back your thoughts
Cause whose gonna listen?
Hiding behind a half smile
Hey, it's such a pity
Everybody's missing out
While you're busy
Holding it all inside, inside

Hey you, it's your turn to
See the beauty in yourself
Just like you tell everyone else
Hey you, am I getting through?
If you would only see yourself
The way you see everyone else
The way I always see you
I see you, hey you
What you're gonna do?

    General Commentthis song really reminds me of my best friend. Basically, there's this person who who has a very low self esteem, but he's a really beautiful person inside and out and Miranda wants them to see that. It's real incredible song. My favorite on her album.

    General CommentI absolutley LOVE this song. Her voice sounds so beautiful, especially on the part where she says "your own dreams." The piano and music is amazing.

    Bonus points for Greek Mythology reference, Miranda! GO DAEDALUS!!!! :)

    p.s. Icarus, you know Daedalus was right, you idiot. You should've listened to him, even if you did trust him and his handiwork. If you trusted him, WHY DIDN'T YOU LISTEN???? :"(
