"Never Gonna Happen" as written by Gregory Allen Kurstin and Lily Allen....
I don't wanna hurt you cause I don't think it's a virtue
But you and I have come to our end
Believe me when I tell you that I never wanna see you again
And please can you stop calling cause it's getting really boring
And I've told you I don't want to be friends
Believe me when I tell you that I never wanna see you again

How on earth could I be any more obvious?
It never really did and now it's never gonna happen
With the two of us
I don't understand what it is that you're chasing after
But it makes me really sad to hear you sound so desperate
It just makes it harder

I can see how it's confusing, it could be considered using
When I call you up straight out of the blue
But I don't understand what else a girl in my position's to do
Now I know you feel betrayed but it's been weeks since I got laid
This doesn't mean that I don't think you're a fool
But I don't understand what else a girl in my position's to do

How on earth
Could I be any more obvious?
It never really did
And now it's never gonna happen
With the two of us
I don't understand
What it is that you're chasing after
But it makes me really sad
To hear you sound so desperate
It just makes it harder

I know it's rather ugly
Cause I know that you still love me
And this isn't any kind of excuse
I don't love you, I don't love you

How on earth could I be any more obvious?
It never really did and now it's never gonna happen
With the two of us
I don't understand what it is that you're chasing after
But it makes me really sad to hear you sound so desperate
It just makes it harder

    General CommentOh come on, people. This is a funny song. The guy would have to be an idiot to keep thinking something is there.

    General CommentI think it's an interesting reversal of gender roles. This is clearly how the majority of males in our society behave toward women. In either situation, whether it's a male or female perpetrator, the person being used is stupid for continuing to fall for the trick.

    I think ladies can take a hint from this song and apply it to their own lives. If a guy is only calling you for a booty call every other month, then he's singing this song for you!!! Don't spread your legs too quick.


    Love this song. LOVE it.

    pretty obvious
    dude loves her
    she doesn't
    but she still uses him
    and gives him hope

    General CommentI love this, cause I think it's a confession. The line "How could I be more obvious?" seems to make sense in the first chorus. You're think, "Yeah, dude, she's made it clear." And then the next verse shows her explicit using of the subject of the song, followed with the repetition of the line "How could I be more obvious?" and there's the twist. It's said tongue-in-cheek. The singer knows what she's doing is awful.

    Especially because it's place just after "Back to the Start" on the album, I think both songs work as a recognition of the ways that the singer can and has hurt people in the past. It's these two songs that make me really adore the album. It's not just a bunch of twee pop songs about love with a couple "Fuck the establishment" songs to show her relevance...there's a lot of real self-reflection.

    General CommentIts lily allen summing up how some girls act these days stringing guys along. Shes contradicting herself on purpose to show how she's manipulating this guy as shes just using him for sex and as he wants more than that she just wants sex but won't tell him.

    General CommentUght - It's about disrespecting and being condescending towards someone she has led on, and then turning around and using him again. I know that guys do it to girls, but I don't think that makes it ok for us girls to do it to guys.

    If she left out the part about calling him out of the blue to USE HIM, then this song would be ok, but she has no right to complain about him wanting to be her friend at least.
