"I Don't Know" as written by and Lily Allen Greg Kurstin....
I don't know how it even started
I'd always thought that we were cool
But recently there's been a change in your demeanor
You're like those nasty girls from school
Look at you huddled 'round the table there
You're like an argument with witches
As I walk by you can't stop whispering and laughing
You're just a bunch of sad old bitches

I don't care, I've got better things to do
I will not be made to feel like shit by you
There was a time, you don't impress me anymore
Here's your coat love, there's the door

Don't you think it's time we went our separate ways
To put it bluntly, please just get out my face
Yeah you can scream and you can shout until you're blue
I don't mind babe, who the fuck are you?

Do you create these situations
'Cause you've got nothing else to do
It's like you've always got to have it in for someone
You and your god forsaken crew
Well girls, I think your days are numbered
And I think you probably know that too
I know it's hard for you to hear, but you should listen
'Cause it's all absolutely true

I don't care, I've got better things to do
I will not be made to feel like shit by you
There was a time, you don't impress me anymore
Here's your coat love, there's the door

Don't you think it's time we went our separate ways
To put it bluntly, please just get out my face
Yeah you can scream and you can shout until you're blue
I don't mind babe, who the fuck are you?

I know exactly how you operate
I've seen you do it time and time again
You keep it up until there's something that you want from me
Then you'll decide that we're the best of friends

I don't care, I've got better things to do
I will not be made to feel like shit by you
There was a time, you don't impress me anymore
Here's your coat love, there's the door

Don't you think it's time we went our separate ways
To put it bluntly, please just get out my face
Yeah you can scream and you can shout until you're blue
I don't mind babe, who the fuck are you?

I don't mind babe, who the fuck are you?

    General CommentI'll look at the sun and I'll look in the mirror
    I think that this is refering to the British tabloid papers "The Sun" and "The Mirror"

    Awesome demo of the song that has just been released

    General CommentI LOVE this song so much!
    I agree about the 'sun' and 'mirror' being references to the newspapers.
    I think ultimatley this song is about the whole fame and image obsessed society we live in and how people get so obsessed by fame they lose their judgement and don't know what's right or wrong any more. I think the first verse especially is aimed at young fame hungry girls.
    I really hope the song makes it onto her next album!

    General CommentYeah, the comments about the tabloids make sense.
    This song shows how much Lily has matured.

    I absolutely ADORE this song! Lily is unbelieveably strong, so goddamn smart. People watching her over the past few months probably thought she'd break down, but she's come back even stronger.
    If that's not worth appreciation and reverance, I have no idea what is.
    I fucking adore this woman. Love. Love LOVE.

    General CommentOh, and to StuffLikeHearts: "packing plastic" is a slang term for having a credit card, I believe.

    General CommentYeah, i really really like this song, too.
    i've always liked her music, and this song just makes me think about how strange it is that she can be so famous on one continent and hardly heard of in another. once in a blue moon she'll pop up in vogue or something for sthg that she wore, but otherwise you never hear about her (or her music) unless you go searching for it. i just thought it was interesting that because of this dichotomy (in a sense), what i initally see as a nicely witty commentary on today's entertainment industry someone else sees as her comeback to show she didn't break down, which gives a totally different pov to consider (thanks feel me loud :-) ). this site is great in that sense.

    and i also really love her music. it has the extremely rare combo of being catchy, fun, and very well thought-out.

    General CommentNow I'm not a saint but I'm not a sinner
    And everything's cool as long as I'm getting thinner

    my favorite part.
    her new demos sound a lot more mature but still like lily allen.
    i love how ironic her music is, the way her lyrics contrast with her high pitched cute voice
    it's hilarious i love it.
