Lyrics of the song Hey! (1968)

(Peter Gabriel, Mike Rutherford, Tony Banks, Anthony Phillips)
I'll tell you the story
Of how my life ran
Well, at first it was easy, but it finished so hard.
Hey! You started me going,
Hey! I was so happy
Hey! You started me going inside me
I need your love right now!
Promises broken; the things I believed in
You were so nice, girl
And I couldn't see through it.
Hey! You ended my happiness
Hey! You needed my love
Hey! You ruined the world I was planning
Hey! You left it all too late
Hey! It's all over now
Hey! You want to apologise
Hey! Well look at me, hundreds of pieces.
Why did you lead me on?
