Smile
Lily Allen Lyrics


When you first left me
I was wanting more
But you were fucking that girl next door
What'd you do that for? (What'd you do that for?)

When you first left me
I didn't know what to say
I've never been on my own that way
Just sat by myself all day

I was so lost back then
But with a little help from my friends
I found the light in the tunnel at the end

Now you're calling me up on the phone
So you can have a little wine and a moan
And it's only because you're feeling alone

At first, when I see you cry
Yeah, it makes me smile
Yeah, it makes me smile
At worst, I feel bad for a while
But then I just smile
I go ahead and smile

Whenever you see me
You say that you want me back (want me back)
And I tell you it don't mean jack (it don't mean jack)
No, it don't mean jack (no, it don't mean jack)

I couldn't stop laughing
No, I just couldn't help myself
See, you messed up my mental health
I was quite unwell

I was so lost back then
But with a little help from my friends
I found the light in the tunnel at the end

Now you're calling me up on the phone
So you can have a little wine and a moan
It's only because you're feeling alone

At first, when I see you cry
Yeah, it makes me smile
Yeah, it makes me smile
At worst, I feel bad for a while
But then I just smile
I go ahead and smile

La-la-la, la-la-la, la-la-la, la-la-la
La-la-la, la-la-la, la-la-la, la-la-la
La-la-la, la-la-la, la-la-la, la-la-la, la-la-la

At first, when I see you cry
Yeah, it makes me smile
Yeah, it makes me smile
At worst, I feel bad for a while
But then I just smile
I go ahead and smile

At first, when I see you cry (I see you cry)
Yeah, it makes me smile (makes me smile)
Yeah, it makes me smile (it makes me smile)
At worst, I feel bad for a while (feel bad for a while)
But then I just smile (but then I just smile)
I go ahead and smile (I go ahead and smile)

@ffucckk youtube uuuuuuuhhhhh.... Uuummm...
Well... Yeah. No.
I uh- don't... think it's quite that- extreme honey.
The song ain't about being leftist or nothin', no worries. (Quite far from it, honestly, I have no idea what the heck you're on about...)
It's more the fact that she can be very fucking sadistic and spiteful lady...
Did the guy deserve it?
Well I ain't got a clue.
She sure thinks he did.
That's really how a lot of sour relationships turn out in Britain honestly...
Or well, at least in the seedier parts...
I'm not justifying or nothing tho, cus honestly I have no idea why she did that, but at least I can enjoy a good melody when I hear one...
So like- calm down maybe?
Because nobody in this comment section has any fucking clue what that random outburst was about...

Edit: okay apparently she never actually did any of this and it's more of a revenge fantasy on her ex...
So like, yeah, way to take it FAR out of context bud...

I've never taken revenge on an ex, but this song/video makes me smile 😃 gotta admit. I definitely fantasized about it. And some most definitely would have deserved it.
