Allen, Lily - I Could Say Lyrics




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 say that I'll always have feelings for you
But I've got a life ahead of me and I'm only 22

Since you've gone I've lost that chip on my shoulder
Since you've gone I feel like I've gotten older
Now you're gone it's as if the whole wide world is my stage
Now you're 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 round 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 that chip on my shoulder
Since you've gone I feel like I've gotten older
Now you're gone it's as if the whole wide world is my stage
Now you're gone it's like I've been let out of my cage

Since you've gone I've lost that chip on my shoulder
Since you've gone I feel like I've gotten older
Now you're gone it's as if the whole wide world is my stage
Now you're gone it's like I've been let out of my cage

  3. TYLER O'TOOLE

    crazy re listening to her stuff, i was really into her music and still am, but mainly 2009... had no idea shes only 33 now!!!


    she was so young during a lot of her albums!!! now that i reached that age and beyond its oddly comforting lol

    Anthony Lee

    I used to listen to her all the time back 10 years ago in high school I was only 18 then now I’m older then her back then lol

  4. Mauricio Vanegas Velasquez

    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 twenty two,

    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 realize 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,

  5. Chanel #6

    This was such an amazing album. I miss those days...

  6. Joseph Mojica

    "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 say that I'll always have feelings for you
    But I've got a life ahead of me and I'm only 22

    Since you've gone I've lost that chip on my shoulder
    Since you've gone I feel like I've gotten older
    Now you're gone it's as if the whole wide world is my stage
    Now you're 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 round 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 that chip on my shoulder
    Since you've gone I feel like I've gotten older
    Now you're gone it's as if the whole wide world is my stage
    Now you're gone it's like I've been let out of my cage

    Since you've gone I've lost that chip on my shoulder
    Since you've gone I feel like I've gotten older
    Now you're gone it's as if the whole wide world is my stage
    Now you're gone it's like I've been let out of my cage

    "I could say" and "Chinese" are some of the most beautiful songs ever.

  15. Bill Armstrong

    Love when it is very possessive, this happens, the heart is imprisoned.

    Our Father, who art in Heaven,
    hallowed be Thy Name.
    Thy Kingdom come, Thy Will be done,
    on Earth, as it is in Heaven.
    Give us this day our daily bread,
    and forgive us our trespasses,
    as we forgive those who trespass against us.
    And lead us not into temptation,
    but deliver us from evil.
    For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory,
    for ever and ever.
    Amen

  56. Natalia Briones

    It's like she wrote this song for me. It's exactly what I'm going through right now.

  57. Julibel Edits

    Get your mind out of the gutter

  58. Ian C

    Except The Fear...

  59. 紡蓮魅歌

    Great song about coming out of a superficial relationship. I think we all, or almost all start those kinds of relationships growing up. Friendships or couples founded over dumb things like that you had homeroom together, or you both wear black, without any sustenance to the relationship/friendship. Then, at some point as adults, you part ways because it wasn't a real relationship/friendship. As you start to split, you might fear not meeting new people. Later, you feel like this song.

  60. littlemissruth15

    omg the top comments have 96 and 69 like AHHHHHH

  61. AJDoubleJK

    Well, first off I listened to the dong you're talking about and they only sound vaguely similar. Second, Without You was released this year. This song was released in 2009. So, if anything, David Guetta stole from her.

  62. Mairon Santos

    This song is myself, completely!

  63. henry3chia

    I love this song(;

  64. danitiwa

    This wouldn't be out of place if it played during a Sims 2 loading screen lol. Every time I hear it I can't help but think of the sims. Something about the sound effects is really similar.

  65. Vanessa Calzada

    it feels like a rapture into a time warp back in time to a sunny day down the pathfinder.

  66. Cc Smith

    Sounds a little like something Keane would do. I love this song.

  67. SanguisSol

    This fills my hole with titallating glue.

    SS

  68. AshtonFalcon

    @bongleboo she just finished writing a musical and is having a baby girl named ethel

  69. bongleboo

    I want to bring lily back! Dayumm.

  70. Nah Gomes

    You are Great Lilyy!

  71. Noseycjr

    the very opening sounds almost exactly like Without You by David Guetta

  72. MrArrow54

    except shes better and not so weird

  73. qernt

    Love Lily and love this song!

  74. niall fadden

    LOVE LILY

  75. darkened

    I can't ever get tired of this

  76. Violka1987

    And now I've come to realise there's nothing cool about you...

  77. penutwi

    She sounds like kate nash :). Both are awesome.... even though I feel rather gay listening to them lol.

  78. Kristina Kiryanouskaya

    good song

  79. Sebastián Montanile

    @dodelledod WTF?Why?

  80. larissa barrasa

    Hands down... this song makes complete sense(:

  81. Melanie Fernandez

    Love it!!!

  82. susipunkrockprincess

    Great song

  83. Callie1m1Price

    @dancenowuhhuh yh ive been sayin that on all of her songs and i think that all those dicks should grow up and stop being dicks (and that coming from a 12 year old)

  84. kira garvin

    you always can relate to Lily allens songs

  85. SOSLICK22

    @youdayoudabessst123 lol, what is that?

    You just have to compare the two? Or do you think TSwift has no talent? Just seems pointless to me. Fanboyism.

  86. Johanna Waldron

    for some reason a LOT of singers lose their accents when they sing but not lilyy! <3 her

  94. revpgesq

    @TheKittich i notice this comment and the on above about having her/his life saved...being healed, saved(and not just having date of death postponed) and delivered to heaven is a great sounding prospect. The Love i work for is pro-this :-):-):-)
