Hello by Lionel Richie – Saturday Song

Hello by Lionel Richie

After writing “Goodbye, I don’t want to see you go!” yesterday, an alternate lyric, tonight’s Saturday Song was given. 

Hello by Lionel Richie from 1983. With that, by now, classic phrase “Hello, is it me you’re looking for?”

A song and an artist who is part of my childhood. He was a favorite of my mother so I listened quite a lot to him as a child, and liked both the longing for love songs and the happy “dancing on the ceiling” type songs. However corny or cheesy my peers thought it was.

The music video, of a teacher pining for his blind student, is both creepy and cringe worthy. It was then and is even more so by today’s standard.
Decided to include it to show how it could look in an era when music videos where still called films and often aspired to emulate real ones.

Enjoy!


Hello – Lyrics

I’ve been alone with you inside my mind
And in my dreams I’ve kissed your lips a thousand times
I sometimes see you pass outside my door
Hello, is it me you’re looking for?

I can see it in your eyes, I can see it in your smile
You’re all I’ve ever wanted and my arms are open wide
‘Cause you know just what to say, and you know just what to do
And I want to tell you so much, I love you

I long to see the sunlight in your hair
And tell you time and time again how much I care
Sometimes I feel my heart will overflow
Hello, I’ve just got to let you know

‘Cause I wonder where you are and I wonder what you do
Are you somewhere feeling lonely or is someone loving you?
Tell me how to win your heart, for I haven’t got a clue
But let me start by saying, I love you

Hello, is it me you’re looking for?

‘Cause I wonder where you are and I wonder what you do
Are you somewhere feeling lonely or is someone loving you?
Tell me how to win your heart, for I haven’t got a clue
But let me start by saying, I love you
I love you
I love you

Is it me you’re looking for?
Hello, is it me you’re looking for?

‘Cause I wonder where you are and I wonder what you do
Are you somewhere feeling lonely or is someone loving you?
Tell me how to win your heart, for I haven’t got a clue
But let me start by saying, I love you
I love you
I love you

Hello, is it me you’re looking for?
Is it me, is it me, is it me
Is it me you’re looking for?
Is it me, is it me
