Lyrics: 

Hey oh, hey oh

I pass through every morning
I don’t step on any tracks
I keep myself to myself
Watch my own back

Hey oh, hey oh

I pocket every ticket
I haven’t lost one yet
I try not to be a nuisance
I try not to sweat

Hey oh hey oh

And I spot you, crestfallen at
The crossing by the station
Well, just wait and see

I’m gonna top you up with yellow
You’ll never have to be sad again
If you don’t wanna be
If you don’t wanna be

I’m gonna top you up with yellow
You’ll never have to be sad again
Hey oh, hey oh.

You’re trying to be green with impatience
You’re ending up stop-dead red
Take a second, take your time
I take what I’ve earnt
It’s mine, it’s mine

And I spot you, under the changing lights
Stirring the paint
Well, just wait and see

I’m gonna top you up with yellow
You’ll never have to be sad again
If you don’t wanna be
If you don’t wanna be

I’m gonna top you up with yellow
You’ll never have to be sad again
Hey oh, hey oh

I’m gonna top you up with yellow
You’ll never have to be sad again
Hey oh, hey oh.

A very very good message delivered in a wonderful way.

intriguing idea, expressing the emotions through the colors of the lights at a road crossing, unlike the oohs and aahs of popular song, your hey ohs seem to mean something in the context of the song, which is captivating throughout.

I agree with @billwhite51 in that your "hey ohs" have so much more depth and meaning than a great deal of OhhhAhhhOhhhs that I hear in popular songs. I also enjoyed the way you've crafted this song of emotions with the colors of a traffic crossing. Brilliant! Your voice is so soothing here and your delivery makes this easily a repeated listen. Well done!
