He Wasn't There

Album: It's Not Me, It's You (2009)
  • He wasn't there
    When I needed him
    No
    He was never around
    His reputation
    Was preceding him
    And he was out
    On the town
    It didn't matter
    If he let me down
    I didn't care
    About the lies
    Now all I knew
    Was that
    He loved me
    Very much
    He was my hero
    In disguise

    I'm so pleased
    I never gave up
    On him
    Oh well
    You wouldn't believe
    Some of the things
    That he did
    And everyone
    Said you
    Have to give him
    Some time
    And I'm glad
    That I gave it
    To him
    Cause now
    Everything's fine

    Now you see
    I never thought
    You'd be
    A constant person
    In my life
    And I don't think
    That you would be
    If you'd
    Save stayed
    With your ex wife
    I know you
    Wouldn't but
    There is no need
    No need
    To apologise
    Because I know
    You'll always
    Love me
    Very much
    You are my hero
    In disguise

    I'm so pleased
    I never gave up
    On him
    Oh
    Well
    You wouldn't believe
    Some of the things
    That he did
    And everyone said you
    Have to give him
    Some time
    And I'm glad
    That I gave it to him
    Cause now
    Everything's fine

    You might have
    Thought you
    Didn't teach me much
    But you
    Taught me
    Right from wrong
    And it was
    When you didn't keep
    In touch
    Well it taught me
    To be strong
    And just in case
    You ever thought
    I would
    I wouldn't change you
    For the world
    Because I know
    You'll always
    Love me
    Very much
    I'll always be
    You're little girl

    I'm so pleased
    I never gave up
    On him
    Oh
    Well you
    Wouldn't believe
    Some of the things
    That he did
    And everyone
    Said you
    Have to give him
    Some time
    And I'm glad
    That I gave it
    To him
    Cause now
    Everything's fineWriter/s: LILY ALLEN, GREGORY KURSTIN
