Lily Allen, The Fear

Lily Allen is back en hoe ! The Fear is de eerste single uit haar langverwachte album dat begin volgend jaar verschijnt. Nu al is duidelijk: het wachten op meer lekkers zal een kwelling zijn.
In 'the fear' ziet Lily haar toekomstig leventje als een sprookje. Niet 'ze leefde lang en gelukkig', maar 'ze was rijk en beroemd' primeert daarbij.
'The fear' valt op door de schitterende lyrics (zie hieronder), de prachtige clip en de muziek/zang zelf. Waren we maar al een paar maand verder...

 

I want to be rich and I want lots of money
I don’t care about clever I don’t care about funny
I want loads of clothes and f***loads of diamonds
I heard people die while they are trying to find them
I’ll take my clothes off and it will be shameless
‘Cuz everyone knows that’s how you get famous
I’ll look at the sun and I’ll look in the mirror
I’m on the right track yeah I’m on to a winner
I don’t know what’s right and what’s real anymore
I don’t know how I’m meant to feel anymore
When we think it will all become clear
‘Cuz I’m being taken over by The Fear
Life’s about film stars and less about mothers
It’s all about fast cars and passing each other
But it doesn’t matter cause I’m packing plastic
and that’s what makes my life so f***ing fantastic
And I am a weapon of massive consumption
and its not my fault it’s how I’m program to function
I’ll look at the sun and I’ll look in the mirror
I’m on the right track yeah I’m on to a winner
I don’t know what’s right and what’s real anymore
I don’t know how I’m meant to feel anymore
When we think it will all become clear
‘Cuz I’m being taken over by The Fear
Forget about guns and forget ammunition
Cause I’m killing them all on my own little mission
Now I’m not a saint but I’m not a sinner
Now everything is cool as long as I’m getting thinner
I don’t know what’s right and what’s real anymore
I don’t know how I’m meant to feel anymore
When we think it will all become clear
‘Cause I’m being taken over by fear
