Allen, Lily - Three Lyrics

You saying you're going but you don't say how long for
You say it's work, but I'm not sure
You say you love me, then you walk right out the door
I'm left here wanting more
Of course there's lots of things I could be getting on with
I'm never short of things to do
This afternoon I made a papier maché fish, mum
I made it just for you

Please don't go, stay here with me
It's not my fault
I'm only three
I'm only three
I'm only three
I'm only three
I'm only three
I'm only three

My social calendar is busier than yours
I've been out making lots of friends
You can't play with us, 'cause you're always off on tour
One day I hope you'll meet them

Please don't go, stay here with me
It's not my fault
I'm only three
I'm only three
I'm only three
I'm only three
I'm only three
I'm only three

When things feel black and white
We'll do some coloring in
When you want to play
When you want to play with me
When things feel black and white
We'll do some coloring in
When you want to play
When you want to play with me

Please don't go, stay here with me
It's not my fault
I'm only three
I'm only three
I'm only three
I'm only three
I'm only three
I'm only three

Allen, Lily Three Comments
  1. Lolita #1973

    I love you

  2. Leah Henny

    This whole album is underrated as fuck! Three, apples, and waste are my favorites! Three is absolutely heart breaking. I thought it was a heart break song but then my heart dropped into my stomach @ the fish made for mom, then my ears perked up and I really appreciated the melody even more.
    Waste in particular has the cutest chorus, super fun to sing along to, with a little bit of reggae and a little dash of trappy vibes. And apples is just a cute song in general, had to hear it a few times to really start to love it, also a good song to sing along too. 🎶 soo cliche for me to say I never meant to break your heaart 🎶 beautiful work Lily ☺️☺️💕

  3. Dave Sheldon

    The narrator switches with the subject so fast, it's unreal. I'll miss my son so much when he leaves for college in just a few. years. I'll only be forty.

  20. 步驚雲與得得B

    大约十年前有一段时间每天循环听Lily Allen的歌,很好奇为什么这么优秀的歌手竟然没有风靡全球。现在再来听Lily Allen的新歌依然好听,她的风格依旧是独树一帜,自成一派,非同凡响。

  21. Runaway Monk

    Resonates with me as a mum
    Thank you
    I love your music
    Always have and always will

  22. Shubert Lau

    A moving song, an amazing album especially the DJ effects. My bad for discovering this album 6 months late!

  23. Maya McCrae

    Saw this live last night. Omg the best song by far! 💗😭

  24. Abbi Quigley

    Omg this is about her leaving her child for tour now I feel bad because I’m actually going to her show tomorrow 😕

  25. yashia96

    All the singers went from being strong like strong men and strong women but now these "sad songs" are all disempowerment. Was this the Lily Allen you knew? What about Fergie? Of course they are still there to promote a bad society but this goes to show how they go from bad to worse.


    And Shia Islam is the truth.

  26. abigmoof

    I heard this song for the first time in the car after dropping my toddler son off at daycare. A minute into the song I was ugly crying so hard I had to pull over. Please never stop making songs like these Lily.

  27. Beetle Heartbreath

  84. Shalom W

    As a former working mum, this really moved me. I will never get the little years back with my eldest son. I was a single mum, working and studying when he was three. It was really tough hearing news about his growth second hand from my folks. He would be asleep when I got back and asleep when I headed off to classes. This song made me cry in the middle of lunch. Simple yet heartbreaking.

    Ffion and immy

    Shalom W are you a boomer

  85. Victor Andrade

    And that's how you make a grown man randomly cry like a fucking baby. Thanks Lily
