hey there lyrics – bette midler

lately when i_m in my room all by myself,
in this solitary gloom i call to myself:

hey there, you with the stars in your eyes,
love never made a fool of you. you used to be too wise.
hey there, you on that high-flying cloud,
though he won_t throw a crumb to you, you think some day he_ll come to you.

better forget him, him with his nose in the air.
he’s got you dancing on a string. break it and he won_t care.

won_t you take this advice i hand you like a mother?
or are you not seeing things too clear?
are you too much in love to hear?
is it all goin_ in one ear and out the other?
and out the other?

hey there, you with the stars in your eyes,
are you talkin’ to me?
love never made a fool of you.
not until now.
you used to be so wise.
oh, that was a long time ago.

hey there,
what?
you on that high-flyin’ cloud,
though he won_t throw a crumb to you,
you think some day he_s gonna come to you.

woah, better forget him.
forget him.
he’s got his nose in the air.
he’s got his nose in the air.
he’ll have you dancing on a string.
a puppet on a string.
break it and he won_t care.
he won’t care for you.

won’t you take this advice i hand you like a mother?
or are you not seein_ things too clear?
are you just too far gone to hear?
is it all goin_ in one ear and out the other?
