Allen, Lily - Mad World Lyrics




All around me are familiar faces
Worn-out places, worn-out faces
Bright and early for their daily races
Going nowhere, going nowhere
Their tears are filling up their glasses
No expression, no expression
Hide my head, I wanna drown my sorrow
No tomorrow, no tomorrow

And I find it kind of funny
I find it kind of sad
The dreams in which I'm dying
Are the best I've ever had
I find it hard to tell you
I find it hard to take
When people run in circles
It's a very, very
Mad world, mad world

Children waiting for the day they feel good
Happy birthday, happy birthday
Made to feel the way that every child should
Sit and listen, sit and listen
Went to school and I was very nervous
No one knew me, no one knew me
Hello, teacher, tell me what's my lesson
Look right through me, look right through me

And I find it kind of funny
I find it kind of sad
The dreams in which I'm dying
Are the best I've ever had
I find it hard to tell you
I find it hard to take
When people run in circles
It's a very very
Mad world, mad world
Mad world, mad world

Allen, Lily Mad World Comments
  1. Juan José Barrionuevo

    Se parece a london thunder de foals

  2. Dark Umbreon

    Something about her voice makes this so haunting

  3. Bec Daly

    What key is this in?

    Thomas Sletvik

    I would say G#m

  4. Emily Crisp

    Lily Allen is just amazing. I always hear her “No Shame” songs in the background of EastEnders, but how they used this song so clearly the other week made my day.

  5. Carla - Louise

    EastEnders brought you here

  7. Joe Kirbitson

    How can we stream lily allens version ?

    Gustavo Nascimento

    it's on her spotify

  8. Jeffeyy Bridger

    Absolutely beautiful version

  9. Lorna doonee

    Watching the episode of eastenders I knew what her intentions were. Suicide isn't noticed enough and we don't always mean what we do I've been there many times thinking ill be at peace and join the ones I love who are no longer here, no more worries or strain on life no more anxiety and no more pain. It is a very mad world it ain't easy it was a deep but beautiful piece it needs to be noticed

    That Eastenders episode was so powerful. Like, this song gives me goosebumps. I just think of Bex's face right before she does it. Jasmine Armfield did a great job, hats off to her!

    Thanks EastEnders.

    laura flavell

    I acutually thought it might have been bex singing this

    Sirdiggar

    @laura flavell at first I wondered then I knew distinctively it was Lily

    laura flavell

    Sirdiggar it would have been good if bex did sing it tho because her hearts always been in music but her mom doesn’t listen to her and pushes her to do something she doesn’t want

    Sirdiggar

    @laura flavell yea definitely I agree!

    Carla - Louise

    laura flavell true
