Lily Allen - Smile Lyrics

When you first left me
I was wanting more
But you were ****ing that girl next door
What'd you do that for?

When you first left me
I didn't know what to say
I'd never been on my own that way
Just slept 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

[Bridge]
Now you're calling me up on the phone
So you can have a little whine and a moan
And it's only because you're feeling alone

[Chorus]
At first when I see you cry
Yeah, it makes me smile
Yeah, it makes me smile
At worst I feel bad for awhile
But then I just smile
I go ahead and smile

Whenever you see me
You say that you want me back
And I tell you 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 whine and a moan
And it's only because you're feeling alone

[Chorus]
