"I can tell you what I mean by total confusion - it's not knowing up from down, left from right, not knowing right from wrong or knowing stupid from common sense. doing something stupid & wrong but think I'm doing something right. failing to see that I could possibly be wrong - that's falling for you. I've had relationships before but only because I needed one, nothing no one like you. I've never looked for love & I was planning on there never being any at all, before you. I haven't had sex in 15 years I've been that much into not looking. Then there's you & everything collapsed.
it took me over a month to pluck up the courage to say to you "you look like you'll be trouble" ax"

Hey You (Waters) 4:39

Hey you, out there in the cold
Getting lonely, getting old
Can you feel me?
Hey you, standing in the aisles
With itchy feet and fading smiles
Can you feel me?
Hey you, dont help them to bury the light
Don't give in without a fight.

Hey you, out there on your own
Sitting naked by the phone
Would you touch me?
Hey you, with you ear against the wall
Waiting for someone to call out
Would you touch me?
Hey you, would you help me to carry the stone?
Open your heart, I'm coming home.

But it was only fantasy.
The wall was too high,
As you can see.
No matter how he tried,
He could not break free.
And the worms ate into his brain.

Hey you, standing in the road
always doing what you're told,
Can you help me?
Hey you, out there beyond the wall,
Breaking bottles in the hall,
Can you help me?
Hey you, don't tell me there's no hope at all
Together we stand, divided we fall.
