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...

You should be Stronger Than Me
You been here seven years longer than me
Don't you know you supposed to be the man
Not pale in comparison to who you think I am

You always wanna talk it through, I don't care!
I always have to comfort you when I'm there
But that's what I need you to do, stroke my hair!

'Cause I've forgotten all of young love's joy
Feel like a lady, and you my lady boy

You should be Stronger Than Me
But instead you're longer than frozen turkey
Why'd you always put me in control?
All I need is for my man to live up to his role

Always wanna talk it through, I'm ok
Always have to comfort you every day
But that's what I need you to do, are you gay?

'Cause I've forgotten all of young love's joy
Feel like a lady, and you my lady boy

He said "The respect I made you earn
Thought you had so many lessons to learn"
I said "You don't know what love is, get a grip!"
Sounds as if you're reading from some other tired script

I'm not gonna meet your mother anytime
I just wanna grip your body over mine
Please, tell me why you think that's a crime

I've forgotten all of young love's joy
Feel like a lady, and you my lady boy

You should be Stronger Than Me
You should be Stronger Than Me
You should be Stronger Than Me
You should be Stronger Than Me
