"I Could Say" as written by Gregory Allen Kurstin and Lily Allen....
I could say that I'll always be here for you,
But that would be a lie and quite a pointless thing to do,
I could says that I'll always have feelings for you
But I've got a life ahead of me, I'm only twenty two,

Since you've gone I've lost a chip on my shoulder,
Since you've gone I feel like I've gotten older,
And now you've gone it feels as if the whole wide world is my stage
And now you've gone it's like I've been let out of my cage,

You always made it clear that you hated my friends,
You made me feel so guilty when I was running around with them,
And everything was always about being cool,
And now I've come to realize there's nothing cool about you at all,

Since you've gone I've lost a chip on my shoulder,
Since you've gone I feel like I've gotten older,
And now you've gone it feels as if the whole wide world is my stage
And now you've gone it's like I've been let out of my cage,

Since you've gone I've lost a chip on my shoulder,
Since you've gone I feel like I've gotten older,
And now you've gone it feels as if the whole wide world is my stage
And now you've gone it's like I've been let out of my cage,

    General Commenti love this song. and it could be taken many ways. most of you believe a break up she didnt care about you. but i think it could be about anyone. for instance this song reminds me of my ex best friend. when she says "the whole world is my stage" i think of it more as she has to pretend.

    General Commentabout a guy that she was dating and she knew that it wouldn't last for long. she was not under any sort of fantasy that they would be together forever or anything. and after they're done she realises all of the negativity that he had put on her. and how much better she is without him.

    btw, i love how she's exploring Electronica but i just kind of wish that she would leave some songs a little more organic. the piano at the start sounded so good but the electronic-ness of the track just completed drowned that out. when she could have just used it to complement the piano. Oh well. its still great :)

    General CommentThis song is really easy to understand actually, and I love it! I imagine she's been through a break up, and the guy was pretty wrong for her, but she cares about him. He cared for her, and he helped keep her in balance and "caged." Since he's gone, she feels the freedom that she once longed for, but now none of it feels right.

    General Commenti knew a guy like this song describes once. except it was sorta backwards, i was head over heels for him and he didnt even care about me. but the way she feels after hes gone is the same way i felt. and i agree with dustybreeze, i love her new sound but i miss stuff thats like her old stuff, and is more natural. good though.

    General Commenti always skipped over this one,
    and now that i'm constantly listening to it,
    i don't know why.
    this is my current dilemma.
    her voice is amazing in this song,
    and it defines alot.

    can't wait for april 18th.
    <3

    General CommentI love this song, it's about breaking free from a relationship, looking back on it and realising you weren't so happy together afterall. I can really relate to this, I was heartbroken when my last relationship failed, I thought I'd never get over him but months down the line, I looked back and saw how unhappy I'd actually been with my ex boyfriend, he was such a negative person to date but I couldn't see it at the time. Now I feel so free. This song is just about coming into your own and seeing that there's so much more to live for.
