Hello
Paul Anka Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

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
Because 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
Because 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?
Because 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

Overall Meaning

The song "Hello" by Paul Anka begins with the lyrics "I've been alone with you inside my mind," which is an indication that the singer has been thinking a lot about the person they are singing to. They may have gone through a period of separation, and in their mind, they've had a thousand imaginary conversations and kisses. The singer reveals that sometimes they see the person they are singing to pass by their door, which suggests that they live nearby, but the distance between them is still great.


The chorus of the song, "Hello, is it me you're looking for?" shows the eagerness of the singer to reconnect with the person they are singing to. The longing in their voice continues as they sing, "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." These lyrics indicate that the singer is willing to make themselves vulnerable to the person they are singing to, for they are willing to put their affection on display.


In the second stanza, the singer shares their desire to see the sunlight in the person's hair and tell them "time and time again how much I care." The singer's emotional state becomes even more evident in the line "sometimes I feel my heart will overflow." In the final chorus, the singer acknowledges their lack of knowledge on how to win the person's heart but resolves to start by telling them "I love you."

I've been alone with you
I've been thinking of you, even when we're not together


Inside my mind
I imagine being with you in my thoughts


And in my dreams I've kissed your lips
I fantasize about romantically being with you


A thousand times
I've dreamt of being with you countless times


I sometimes see you
I catch glimpses of you


Pass outside my door
But you don't notice me


Hello
I want to reach out to you


Is it me you're looking for?
Do you want me like how I want you?


I can see it in your eyes
Your eyes give away how you feel


I can see it in your smile
Your smile tells me everything I need to know


You're all I've ever wanted
I want to be with you more than anything else

I also worry that someone else may have captured your heart


Tell me how to win your heart
I want to know what I can do to make you mine

I am unsure about what steps to take


But let me start by saying
The only thing I do know is that I love you


I love you
I am deeply in love with you
