Life For Me

Play Video
  • When the day's over and I have a second to myself
    I lie on the sofa watching TV
    Get on the computer and start checking up on everyone else
    On everyone else

    Looking at all the pictures
    Up to all sorts of mischief
    Some of them are ridiculous
    Everything's there to see

    Everyone looks so wasted
    Totally off their faces
    I feel so isolated
    Everyone there but me

    Why does it feel like I'm missing something?
    "Been there and done that" was good for nothing
    Everything's perfect, yeah I'm as content as can be
    This is the life for me (This is the life for me, yeah)

    Tell me I'm normal for feeling like this
    It's a bit early for a midlife crisis
    Everything's perfect, yeah I'm as content as can be
    This is the life for me (This is the life for me, yeah)

    I'm not complaining but last night I hardly slept at all
    But actually yes I am complaining
    No energy left in me, the baby might have taken it all
    'Cause I've hit the wall

    Please don't think that I'm being rude
    Honey I'm just not in the mood
    I'm head to toe in baby food
    So please will you give it a rest

    It's not that I don't love you
    And it's not that I don't want to
    Honestly baby to tell you the truth
    I feel like a bit of a mess

    Why does it feel like I'm missing something?
    "Been there and done that" was good for nothing
    Everything's perfect, yeah I'm as content as can be
    This is the life for me (This is the life for me, yeah)

    Tell me I'm normal for feeling like this
    It's a bit early for a midlife crisis
    Everything's perfect, yeah I'm as content as can be
    This is the life for me (This is the life for me, yeah)

    I could never get bored of it
    And most of the time I love this
    But sometimes I get nostalgic
    When actually I'm complete

    Why does it feel like I'm missing something?
    "Been there and done that" was good for nothing
    Everything's perfect, yeah I'm as content as can be
    This is the life for me (This is the life for me, yeah)

    Tell me I'm normal for feeling like this
    It's a bit early for a midlife crisis
    Everything's perfect, yeah I'm as content as can be
    This is the life for me (This is the life for me, yeah)

    Everything's perfect, yeah I'm as content as can be
    This is the life for me (this is the life for me, yeah) Writer/s: GREG KURSTIN, LILY ALLEN, KAREN POOLE
