Joanne track listing

"Hey Girl" is a song written by Lady Gaga and Florence Welch, of Florence + the Machine, for Gaga's fifth studio album Joanne. She performed a small snippet of the song October 5, 2016 during her interview with 102.7 KIIS FM. The track is the only collaboration on the album.

BackgroundEdit

Rumors about collaboration started when Florence shared an Instagram picture of her standing in front of a baby blue Ford Bronco – the same custom car Gaga was photographed driving earlier the same week. They were also both spotted with Mark Ronson in California. During an interview with BBC1 Radio, Gaga spoke about the collaboration on the album, "There's a feature on the album that I think you will be very excited about. Me and Florence Welch did a duet together. I started to work on an idea for a song that I really wanted to do with a girl. You’ll see why when you see what the song is about." She continued, "I just thought, ‘Who do I want to sing with?’ She’s really to me if not the best, one of the greatest vocalists in the world. She’s incredible." During and interview with Beats1, Zane Lowe has asked her about the making process of the song and she replied: "Love that record. [...] I remember when she [Florence] came in and I was like o.k. I want to go back and forth [...] and she was like "Why are we going back and forth [...] I should just sing the second verse in this" and I was like "No! [...] There's got to be a conversation. We got to talk to each other. I need to women having it out and the coming together""

LyricsEdit

[Verse 1: Lady Gaga & Florence Welch]
Hey girl, can you hear me?
Are you holding out your heart?
Hey girl, do you feel me?
Sometimes I go too far
Hey girl, it ain't easy
I know it's pulling me apart
But darlin', don't you leave me
Baby, don't you leave me

[Chorus: Lady Gaga & Florence Welch]
Hey girl, hey girl
We can make it easy if we lift each other
Hey girl, hey girl
We don't need to keep on one-in' up another
Hey girl, hey girl
Hey girl, hey girl
If you lose your way
Just know that I got you
Just know that I got you
[Verse 2: Lady Gaga & Florence Welch]
Lady is it lonely?
I been callin' out your name
Tell me that you need me
'Cause I need you just the same
Everyday a heartache
I'm just tryin' to keep it sane
But I know you believe me
Baby don't you leave me

[Chorus: Lady Gaga & Florence Welch]
Hey girl, hey girl
We can make it easy if we lift each other
Hey girl, hey girl
We don't need to keep on one-in' up another
Hey girl, hey girl
Hey girl, hey girl
If you lose your way
Just know that I got you

[Bridge: Lady Gaga, Florence Welch & Both]
Help me hold my hair back
Walk me home 'cause I can't find a cab
And we dance down The Bowery
Held hands like we were 17 again
And then it's 4am
The sun is creepin' up again
Don't you leave me
Oh, darling don't you leave me

[Chorus: Lady Gaga & Florence Welch]
Hey girl, hey girl
We can make it easy if we lift each other
Hey girl, hey girl
We don't need to keep on one-in' up another
Hey girl, hey girl
Hey girl, hey girl
If you lose your way
Just know that I got you

[Outro: Lady Gaga]
Just know that
Just know that I got you
Just know that
Just know that
Just know that
Help me hold my hair back
Walk me home 'cause I can't find a cab
And we dance down The Bowery
Held hands like we were 17 again
