Littlest Things

Album: Alright,Still (2006)
Charted: 21
  • Sometimes I find myself sittin' back and reminiscing
    Especially when I have to watch other people kissin'
    And I remember when you started callin' me your miss's
    All the play fightin', all the flirtatious disses
    I'd tell you sad stories about my childhood
    I don't know why I trusted you but I knew that I could
    We'd spend the whole weekend lying in our own dirt
    I was just so happy in your boxers and your t-shirt

    Dreams, dreams
    Of when we had just started things
    Dreams of you and me
    It seems, it seems
    That I can't shake those memories
    I wonder if you have the same dreams too.

    The littlest things that take me there
    I know it sounds lame but its so true
    I know its not right, but it seems unfair
    The things are reminding me of you
    Sometimes I wish we could just pretend
    Even if for only one weekend
    So come on, tell me
    Is this the end?

    Drinkin' tea in bed
    Watching dvd's
    When I discovered all your dirty grotty magazines
    You take me out shopping and all we'd buy is trainers
    As if we ever needed anything to entertain us
    The first time that you introduced me to your friends
    And you could tell that I was nervous, so you held my hand
    When I was feeling down, you made that face you do
    No one in the world who could replace you

    Dreams, dreams
    Of when we had just started things
    Dreams of me and you
    It seems, it seems
    That I can't shake those memories
    I wonder if you feel the same way too

    The littlest things that take me there
    I know it sounds lame but its so true
    I know its not right, but it seems unfair
    The things are reminding me of you
    Sometimes I wish we could just pretend
    Even if for only one weekend
    So come on, tell me
    Is this the end? Writer/s: Pierre Bachelet, Herve Andre Roy, Lily Allen, Santi White, Mark Ronson
