The Song That Never Was
Imogen Heap Lyrics


Green to this.
Where's a manual when you need one?
The back of your hand, no good to you now.
Right angles,
It's all shaped wrong when it should be rolling.
You're pining every trick this box hasn't got.

It's alright...
didn't I tell you so?
It's alright.
It's all in the process.
It's alright.
You're all set to go.
So don't give me that look...
'cause I know you're up to it.

My favourite thing,
to walk out on the bridge and look back on Manhattan,
under sunset covers while the city lights up.
You'll find yours,
whoever, whatever, you need, it'll be here.
Guarenteed under these golden old streets.

It's alright...
'Cause I'm telling you so.
It's alright.
It's all in the process.
It's alright.
You're all set to go.
So don't give me that look...
'cause I know you're up to it.

Just one place.
Just one place,
to make amend.
Just one friend.
Just one friend,
that's all it takes.

It's alright.
Didn't I tell you so?
It's alright.
It's all in the process.
It's alright,
and you're all set to go.
so don't give me that look,..
'cause I know you're up to it.

THE SONG THAT NEVER WAS
Imogen Heap
Album: B-Sides and Unreleased

[Verse 1]
Green to this, where's a manual when you need one?
The back of your hand, no good to you now
Right angles, it's all shaped wrong when it should be rolling
You're pining every trick this box hasn't got

[Chorus]
It's alright, didn't I tell you so?
It's alright, it's all in the process
It's alright, you're all set to go
So don't give me that look, cause I know you're up to it

[Verse 2]
My favorite thing
To walk out on the bridge and look back on Manhattan
Under sunset covers while the city lights up
You'll find yours, whoever, whatever you need, it'll be here
Guaranteed amongst these golden old streets

[Chorus]
It's alright, cause I'm telling you so
It's alright, it's all in the process
It's alright, you're all set to go
So don't give me that look, cause I know you're up to it

[Bridge]
Just one place (Just one place...)
Just one place (one place...)
To make amend (To make amend...)
Just one friend (one friend...)
Just one friend (Just one friend...)
That's all it takes (Just...)

[Chorus]
It's alright, didn't I tell you so?
It's alright, it's all in the process
It's alright, and you're all set to go
So don't give me that look, cause I know you're up to it

This is the Heap-iest remix, and I mean it in a good way! :)

Puni Saurio

it could be easily confused with one of her songs, its as good as that.

This Is Unfair

She really is the most beautiful person to ever make music. <3 inspiring.

I just stumbled upon this while listening to glittering clouds. I have to say I genuinely thought this was an immi song I haven't heard yet!!! Scrolling down and reading the comments realizing it's not was quite delightful. Really beautiful!!!

kali4good

For a while i thought this was immi's own version. You've captured the essence of an "imogen heap-ish" song. <3333 This is my favorite song at the moment.

Radek Joseph Jester

as someone said here before - this one is the most 'heapish' ;)

Isra

I keep on coming back to this version. Just BRILLIANT!

SuoBella

flowerboysandramyun

This is seriously the best one. It sounds so...HEAP :) is it possible that you could upload the HQ version to mediafire or something? It's really just...perfect.

Heli Juutinen

this is the best version of this. I had to read the comments to realise it wasn't the actual version. this totally sounds like Immi, you're amazing ♥
