"Absolutely Nothing" as written by Lily Rose Allen, Iyiola Babatunde Babalola and Darren Emilio Lewis....
I'm on the doorstep
With my key turned in the door
Walk in the living room
And you're sat on the floor

My heart is aching
And I've never felt this bad
I pinch myself
To check that all of this is real

Keep faking
I'm not letting on, I feel this sad
And then you've got the cheek
To ask me how I feel

And I say absolutely nothing
I'm absolutely fine
Absolutely nothing
You can say to change my mind

Absolutely nothing
I'm absolutely fine
Absolutely nothing
You can say to change my mind

I know that you just want
To see me get upset
My world turned upside down
So what did you expect?

My heart is aching
And I've never felt this bad
I pinch myself
To check that all of this is real

Keep faking
I'm not letting on, I feel this sad
And then you've got the cheek
To ask me how I feel

And I say absolutely nothing
I'm absolutely fine
Absolutely nothing
You can say to change my mind

Absolutely nothing
I'm absolutely fine
Absolutely nothing
You can say to change my mind

You've seen me cry
Too many times
But not this time
No, not this time

I don't need you
To help me through
I'll be just fine
I'll be just fine

And I say absolutely nothing
I'm absolutely fine
Absolutely nothing
You can say to change my mind

Absolutely nothing
I'm absolutely fine
Absolutely nothing
You can say to change my mind

Absolutely nothing
I'm absolutely fine
Absolutely nothing
You can say to change my mind

Absolutely nothing
I'm absolutely fine
Absolutely nothing
You can say to change my mind

Absolutely nothing
I'm absolutely fine
Absolutely nothing
You can say to change my mind

Absolutely nothing
I'm absolutely fine
Absolutely nothing
You can say to change my mind

    General Commentuh? is it saying that she's acting like nothing's wrong so that he won't feel the power of getting her upset?

    General Commentits clearly about a break-up.
    bf breaks up with girl.
    shes heartbroken & wants to die but she doesnt want to let on how upset she is so she lies & tells him shes fine.

    well thats my take on it at least..

    General Commenti agree with darkleexxx.

    she hurts so bad she wants to crawl under the covers forever. But she can stand to show how hurt she really is so instead she's strong and goes on like nothing's wrong.

    "I know that you just want to see me get upset" -she's not giving him the satisfaction-he's already done enough damage and she's not going to let him know what he's done.

    the repeated "absolutely nothing" is like her convincing herself that she's fine--trying to make herself believe a lie cuz she can't deal with the truth

    i love this song--helps you move on from a bad relationship

    General CommentI agree with that, but to me personally it's about how something happens that really upsets you, and you have a friend that's kind of smirking at you and feel satisfied by it. But you say that you're absolutely fine, even though you feel like crap.

    I think she wrote it about a break-up, though.
