Lyrics Print lyrics

Hey You

Don't you give up

It's not so bad

There's still a chance for us

 

Hey You

Just be yourself

Don't be so shy

There's reasons why it's hard

 

Keep it together

You'll make it alright

Our celebration is going on tonight

Poets and prophets would envy what we do

This could be good

Hey You

 

Hey You

Open your heart

It's not so strange

You've got to change this time

Hey You

Remember this

None of it's real

Including the way you feel

 

Keep it together

We'll make it alright

Our celebration is going on tonight

Poets and prophets would envy what we do

This could be good (this could be good)

Hey You

 

Save your soul little sister

Save your soul little brother

Hey You

Save yourself

Don't rely on anyone else

 

First love yourself

Then you can love someone else

If you can change someone else

Then you have saved someone else

But you must

First love yourself

Then you can love someone else

If you can change someone else

Then you have saved someone else

But you must first

 

Hey You

There on the fence

You've got a choice

One day it will make sense

Hey You

First love yourself

Or if you can't

Try to love someone else

 

Keep it together

We'll make it alright

Our celebration is going on tonight

Poets and prophets will envy what we do

This could be good (this could be good)

Hey You

 

First love yourself

Then you can love someone else

If you can change someone else

Then you have saved someone else

But you must

First love yourself

Then you can love someone else

If you can change someone else

Then you have saved someone else

But you must first

Single

Hey You @ Live Earth This is a charity single, the official theme song for Live Earth. It was first available as a free download on MSN.com on May 16th, 2007. It stayed there free for a week with MSN donating $0.25 per download to the Alliance for Climate Protection.

Hey You originates from the Mirwais track Keep The Trance, recorded in 2004 with most of the lyrics coming from that demo, but uses a different melody and instrumentation, made with Pharrell.

Madonna performed the song at the Live Earth concert in London on July 7th, 2007. She was the closing act in the new Wembley Stadium, and she opened her 4 song set with Hey You. She just stood onstage looking all gorgeous in a black dress and gave a sincere rendition with a children's choir.

Video

The video consisted of a series of imagery related to Live Earth, global warming and politics. Among them were images of political leaders, of natural disasters, of starvation, but also of the good things that Mother Earth offers us and that we should cherish. The images were interspersed with parts of the lyrics, written out on the screen.
