Lily Allen Songtext: Him

Lily Allen Songtext: Him

Would you please take me away from this place
I cannot bear to see the look upon your faces
And if there is some kind of god do you think he’s pleased
When he looks down on us I wonder what he sees
Do you think he’d think the things we do are a waste of time
Maybe he’d think we are getting on just fine
Do you think he’s skint or financially secure
And come election time I wonder who he’d vote for

Ever since he can remember people have died in his good name
Long before that September
Long before hijacking planes
He’s lost the will he can’t decide
He doesn’t know who’s right or wrong
But there’s one thing that he’s sure of this has been going on too long

Do you think he’d drive in his car without insurance
Now is he interesting or do you think he’d bore us
Do you think his favourite type of human is caucasian
Do you reckon he’s ever been done for tax evasion
Do you think he’s any good at remembering people’s names
Do you think he’s ever taken smack or cocaine
I don’t imagine he’s ever been suicidal
His favourite band is Creedence Clearwater Revival

Ever since he can remember people have died in his good name
Long before that September
Long before hijacking planes
He’s lost the will he can’t decide
He doesn’t know who’s right or wrong
But there’s one thing that he’s sure of this has been going on too long

Ever since he can remember people have died in his good name
Long before that September
Long before hijacking planes
He’s lost the will he can’t decide
He doesn’t know who’s right or wrong
But there’s one thing that he’s sure of this has been going on too long

Lily Allen Songtext: Chinese

Lily Allen Songtext: Chinese

I see you from the sky
And I wonder how long it will take me to get home
I wait for an hour or so at the carousel
I have a cigarette to pass the time
Cause the traffic’s hell

I don’t want anything more
Than to see your face when you open the door
You’ll make me beans on toast and a nice cup of tea
And we’ll get a chinese and watch TV
Tomorrow we’ll take the dog for a walk
And in the afternoon then maybe we’ll talk
I’ll be exhausted so I’ll probably sleep
And we’ll get a chinese and watch TV

You wipe the tears from my eye
And you say that all that it takes is a phone call
I cry at the thought of being alone and then
I wonder how long it will take til I’m home again

I don’t want anything more
Than to see your face when you open the door
You’ll make me beans on toast and a nice cup of tea
And we’ll get a chinese and watch TV
Tomorrow we’ll take the dog for a walk
And in the afternoon then maybe we’ll talk
I’ll be exhausted so I’ll probably sleep
And we’ll get a chinese and watch TV

I know it doesn’t seem so fair
But I’ll send you a postcard when I get there

I don’t want anything more
Than to see your face when you open the door
You’ll make me beans on toast and a nice cup of tea
And we’ll get a chinese and watch TV
Tomorrow we’ll take the dog for a walk
And in the afternoon then maybe we’ll talk
I’ll be exhausted so I’ll probably sleep
And we’ll get a chinese and watch TV

Lily Allen Songtext: Who’d Have Known

Lily Allen Songtext: Who’d Have Known

It’s five o’clock in the morning
Conversation got boring
You said you’d go into bed soon
So I snuck off to your bedroom
And I thought I’d just wait there
Until I heard you come up the stairs
And I pretended I was sleeping
And I was hoping you would creep in, with me

Put your arm around my shoulder
And it was as if the room got colder
And we moved closer in together
Started talking about the weather
Said „tomorrow would be fun“
We could watch a place in the sun
I didn’t know where this was going, when you kissed me

Are you mine? Are you mine?
Cause I stay here all the time
Watching tele, drinking wine
Who’d have known? Who’d have known?
When you’d flash up on my phone
I’d no longer feel alone
No longer feel alone

I haven’t left here for days now
And I’m becoming amazed how
You’re quite affectionate in public
in fact your friend said it made her feel sick
And even though it’s moving forward
There’s just the right amount of awkward
And today you accidentally Called me baby

Are you mine? Are you mine?
Cause I stay here all the time
Watching tele, drinking wine
Who’d have known? Who’d have known?
When you’d flash up on my phone
I’d no longer feel alone
No longer feel alone

Let’s just stay,let’s just stay
I wanna lie in bed all day
We’ll be laughing all the way
You told your friends They all know we exist
But we’re taking it slow
Now let’s just see how we go
Now let’s see how we go

Let’s just stay,let’s just stay
I wanna lie in bed all day
We’ll be laughing all the way
You told your friends They all know we exist
But we’re taking it slow
Now let’s just see how we go
Now let’s see how we go

Lily Allen Songtext: Never Gonna Happen

Lily Allen Songtext: Never Gonna Happen

I don’t wanna hurt you cause I don’t think it’s a virtue
But you and I have come to our end
Believe me when I tell you that I never wanna see you again
And please can you stop calling cause it’s getting really boring
And I’ve told you I don’t want to be friends
Believe me when I tell you that I never wanna see you again

How on earth could I be any more obvious?
It never really did and now it’s never gonna happen with the two of us
I don’t understand what it is that you’re chasing after
But it makes me really sad to hear you sound so desperate
It just makes it harder

I can see how it’s confusing — it could be considered using
When I call you up straight out of the blue
But I don’t understand what else a girl in my position’s to do
Now I know you feel betrayed but it’s been weeks since I got laid
This doesn’t mean that I don’t think you’re a fool
But I don’t understand what else a girl in my position’s to do

How on earth could I be any more obvious?
It never really did and now it’s never gonna happen with the two of us
I don’t understand what it is that you’re chasing after
But it makes me really sad to hear you sound so desperate
It just makes it harder

I know it’s rather ugly cause I know that you still love me
And this isn’t any kind of excuse
I don’t love you, I don’t love you…

How on earth could I be any more obvious?
It never really did and now it’s never gonna happen with the two of us
I don’t understand what it is that you’re chasing after
But it makes me really sad to hear you sound so desperate
It just makes it harder

Lily Allen Songtext: Back To The Start

Lily Allen Songtext: Back To The Start

When we were growing up, you always looked like you were having such fun
You always were and you always will be the taller and the prettier one
People seem to love you, they gravitate towards you
That’s why I started to hate you so much and I just completely ignored you

I don’t know why I felt the need to keep it up for uh so long
It’s all my fault I’m sorry you did absolutely nothing wrong
I don’t know why I felt the need to drag it out for all these years
All the pain I’ve caused you, the constant flow of all the tears
Believe me when I say that I cannot apologise enough
When all you ever wanted from me was a token of my love
And if it’s not too late, could you please find it deep within your heart
To try and go back, go back to the start
Go back to the start

I’ve been so evil with my constant invasions
But you made it so easy for me, you always rise to the occasion
I’ll always pull you up on every stupid thing that you said
But I found it so entertaining messing around with your head

I don’t know why I felt the need to keep it up for uh so long
It’s all my fault I’m sorry you did absolutely nothing wrong
I don’t know why I felt the need to drag it out for all these years
All the pain I’ve caused you, the constant flow of all the tears
Believe me when I say that I cannot apologise enough
When all you ever wanted from me was a token of my love
And if it’s not too late could you please find it deep within your heart
To try and go back go back to the start
Go back to the start
Go back to the start
Go back to the start

This is not just a song, I intend to put these words into action
I hope that it sums up the way that I feel to your satisfaction

I don’t know why I felt the need to keep it up for uh so long
It’s all my fault I’m sorry you did absolutely nothing wrong
I don’t know why I felt the need to drag it out for all these years
All the pain I’ve caused you, the constant flow of all the tears
Believe me when I say that I cannot apologise enough
When all you ever wanted from me was a token of my love
And if it’s not too late, could you please find it deep within your heart
To try and go back, go back to the start
Go back to the start

Lily Allen Songtext: 22

Lily Allen Songtext: 22

When she was 22
Her future looked bright
But she’s nearly 30 now
And she’s out every night
I see that look in her face
She’s got that look in her eye
She’s thinking how did I get here
And wondering why

It’s sad but it’s true how society says
Her life is already over
There’s nothing to do
And there’s nothing to say
Til the man of her dreams comes along
Picks her up and puts her over his shoulder
It seems so unlikely in this day and age

She’s got an allright job
But it’s not a career
Whenever she thinks about it
It brings her to tears
Cause all she wants is a boyfriend
She gets one night stands
She’s thinking how did I get here
I’m doing all that I can

It’s sad but it’s true how society says
Her life is already over
There’s nothing to do
And there’s nothing to say
Til the man of her dreams comes along
Picks her up and puts her over his shoulder
It seems so unlikely in this day and age

It’s sad but it’s true how society says
Her life is already over
There’s nothing to do
And there’s nothing to say
Til the man of her dreams comes along
Picks her up and puts her over his shoulder
It seems so unlikely in this day and age.

Lily Allen Songtext: It´s Not Fair

Lily Allen Songtext: It´s Not Fair

Oh, he treats me with respect
He says he loves me all the time
He calls me 15 times a day
He likes to make sure that im fine
You know I’ve never met a man
Whose made me feel quite so secure
He’s not like all them other boys
They’re so dumb and immature

There’s just one thing, that’s getting in the way
When we go up to bed your just no good, its such a shame
I look into your eyes, I want to get to know you
And then you make this noise and it’s apparent it’s all over

It’s not fair
And I think your really mean
I think your really mean, I think your really mean
Oh your supposed to care,
But you never make me scream, you never make me scream

Oh it’s not fair
And it’s really not ok
It’s really not ok, it’s really not ok
Oh your supposed to care
But all you do is take, yeah, all you do is take

Oh I lie here in the wet patch, in the middle of the bed
I’m feeling pretty damn hard done by I spent ages giving head
Then I remember all the nice things that you ever said to me
Maybe I’m just overreacting, maybe you’re the one for me
There’s just one thing that’s getting in the way

When we go up to bed you’re just no good, it’s such a shame
I look into your eyes I want to get to know you
And then you make this noise and it’s apparent it’s all over

It’s not fair
And I think you’re really mean
I think you’re really mean, I think you’re really mean
Oh you’re supposed to care,
But you never make me scream, you never make me scream

Oh it’s not fair
And it’s really not ok
It’s really not ok, it’s really not ok
Oh you’re supposed to care
But all you do is take, yeah all you do is take

There’s just one thing that’s getting in the way
When we go up to bed you’re just no good
It’s such a shame
I look into your eyes I want to get to know you
And then you make this noise and its apparent it’s all over

It’s not fair
And I think you’re really mean
I think you’re really mean, I think you’re really mean
Oh you’re supposed to care
But you never make me scream, you never make me scream

Oh it’s not fair
And it’s really not ok
It’s really not ok, it’s really not ok
Oh you’re supposed to care
But all you do is take, yeah all you do is take.

Lily Allen Songtext: The Fear

Lily Allen Songtext: The Fear:

I wanna be rich, and I want lots of money
I don’t care about clever, I don’t care about funny
I want loads of clothes and fuck loads of diamonds
I heard people die while trying to find them
And I’ll take my clothes off, and it will be shameless
‚Cause everyone knows that’s how you get famous
I’ll look at the sun, and look in the mirror
I’m on the right track, yeah I’m on to a winner

I don’t know what’s right and what’s real anymore
And I don’t know how I’m meant to feel anymore
And when do you think it will all become clear?
‚Cause I’m being taken over by the fear

Life’s about film stars and less about mothers
It’s all about fast cars and cussing each other
But it doesn’t matter ‚cause I’m packing plastic
And that’s what makes my life so fucking fantastic
And I am a weapon of massive consumption
And it’s not my fault, it’s how I’m programed to function
I look at the sun, and I look in the mirror
I’m on the right track, yeah we’re on to a winner

I don’t know what’s right and what’s real anymore
And I don’t know how I’m meant to feel anymore
And when do you think it will all become clear?
‚Cause I’m being taken over by the fear

Forget about guns, and forget ammunition
‚Cause I’m killing them all on my own little mission
Now I’m not a saint, but I’m not a sinner
And everything’s cool as long as I’m getting thinner

I don’t know what’s right and what’s real anymore
And I don’t know how I’m meant to feel anymore
And when do you think it will all become clear?
‚Cause I’m being taken over by the fear

Lily Allen Songtext: I Could Say

Lily Allen Songtext: I Could Say

I could say that I’ll always be here for you,
But that would be a lie and quite a pointless thing to do,
I could says that I’ll always have feelings for you
but i’ve got a life ahead of me, I’m only 22,

Since you’ve gone I’ve lost a chip on my shoulder,
Since you’ve gone I feel like I’ve gotten older,
And now you’ve gone it feels as if the whole wide world is my stage
And now you’ve gone it’s like I’ve been let out of my cage,

You always made it clear that you hated my friends,
You made me feel so guilty when I was running around with them,
And everything was always about being cool,
And now I’ve come to realise there’s nothing cool about you at all,

Since you’ve gone I’ve lost a chip on my shoulder,
Since you’ve gone I feel like I’ve gotten older,
And now you’ve gone it feels as if the whole wide world is my stage
And now you’ve gone it’s like I’ve been let out of my cage,

Since you’ve gone I’ve lost a chip on my shoulder,
Since you’ve gone I feel like I’ve gotten older,
And now you’ve gone it feels as if the whole wide world is my stage
And now you’ve gone it’s like I’ve been let out of my cage

Lily Allen Songtext: Fuck You

Lily Allen Songtext: Fuck You

Look inside
Look inside your tiny mind
Now look a bit harder
Cause we’re so uninspired, so sick and tired of all the hatred you harbor

So you say
It’s not okay to be gay
Well I think you’re just evil
You’re just some racist who can’t tie my laces
Your point of view is midieval

Fuck you
Fuck you very, very much
Cause we hate what you do
And we hate your whole crew
So please don’t stay in touch

Fuck you
Fuck you very, very much
Cause your words don’t translate
And it’s getting quite late
So please don’t stay in touch

Do you get
Do you get a little kick of being slow minded?
You want to be like your father
It’s approval your after
Well that’s not how you find it

Do you
Do you really enjoy living a life that’s so hateful?
Cause there’s a hole where your soul should be
Your losing control of it and it’s really distasteful

Fuck you
Fuck you very, very much
Cause we hate what you do
And we hate your whole crew
So please don’t stay in touch

Fuck you
Fuck you very, very much
Cause your words don’t translate and it’s getting quite late
So please don’t stay in touch

Look inside
Look inside your tiny mind
Now look a bit harder
Cause we’re so uninspired, so sick and tired of all the hatred you harbor

Fuck you
Fuck you very, very much
Cause we hate what you do
And we hate your whole crew
So please don’t stay in touch

Fuck you
Fuck you very, very much
Cause your words don’t translate and it’s getting quite late
So please don’t stay in touch
