Allen, Lily - What You Waiting For? Lyrics




Since we separated
I've been suffocated, ah yeah
All the empty space in my head
First I felt liberated by it
But solitude is overrated
The other day I swear someone said
Someone else is sharing your bed
Maybe you picked up where I left
Now my heart is sinking
I don't know what I've been thinking

I turned a strong man weak
I threw him down, brought him to his knees
I'm hoping somehow he'll forgive me
I think to myself, what you waiting for?
You'll never be sure
Swinging back and forth
Just leave him alone-o-one
What you waiting for?
You'll never be sure
Swinging back and forth
I just don't know, know, know

Now the dust has settled
I should probably level with you
Meant it when I said, "I do"
Don't know why I was untrue
With everything I put you through
How'd it make you feel if I said I still love you
If I could go back, select all, press undo
Never thought we'd be this couple
I ran at the first sign of trouble

I turned a strong man weak
I threw him down, brought him to his knees
I'm hoping somehow he'll forgive me
I think to myself, what you waiting for?
You'll never be sure
Swinging back and forth
Just leave him alone-o-one
What you waiting for?
You'll never be sure
Swinging back and forth
I just don't know, know, know

Since we separated
I've been suffocated, ah yeah
All the empty space in my head
First I felt liberated by it
But solitude is overrated
The other day I swear someone said
Someone else is sharing your bed
Maybe you picked up where I left
Now my heart is sinking
I don't know what I've been thinking

I turned a strong man weak
I threw him down, brought him to his knees
I'm hoping somehow he'll forgive me
I think to myself, what you waiting for?
You'll never be sure
Swinging back and forth
Just leave him alone-o-one
What you waiting for?
You'll never be sure
Swinging back and forth
I just don't know, know, know

  33. Sadcore Prince

  34. Perimiter Music

    You can feel the emotions, I hoped it would work for her and Sam, but she's always been too adventurous for him..so it's for the best, sooo sad tho. Forgive my run on sentences lol

    Dillon Anthony

    adventurous in what way though? like her character in oppose to his or in a fuck around with other people way? or that performing and income lets and makes her travel around a lot meeting a lot of connections and famous people etc?

    Perimiter Music

    @Dillon Anthony

    You do know her reputation right??? She was a party child for the longest time

    Dillon Anthony

    @Perimiter Music Yeah but they was together a while and that didn't stop her then, plus now they have children... and they're getting older so being adventurous maybe will seem harder to find?




    Might have rep' for being seen as a party child - she's never been long without a partner #TaurusNeverAre

    Perimiter Music

    @Dillon Anthony

    It's lily allen though!!! Idk how some guy could think he could change LILY ALLEN. He wanted her to give up her career, I blame him for the lack of success she's had. He looks like a sore thumb. Which was was she needed in 20010 not now. She needs someone who supports her in the music industry

    Dillon Anthony

    @Perimiter Music He wanted her to give up her career? Wow. Why? She's been the lil queen ever since she started - fuck knows why this was the case. I don't know if he's much of a factor to blame :/ (I'm not FOR him at all-I barely know anything) I don't know why she 'NEEDED' him in 2010 though (and not since etc). I'm not sure what she wants to do with her music career now or in the future-looks like she's got room to do anything. I do feel like she's just been rolling with what she considers mistakes when I look at her though. She's obviously not too sure or stable about love in this song here alone.

  35. lonetruthseeker

    Lavania Del Rey
