22

Lyrics

When she was 22 the future looked bright
But she's nearly 30 now and she's out every night
I see that look in her face she's got that look in her eye
She's thinking how did I get here and wondering why

When she was 22 the future looked bright
But she's nearly 30 now and she's out every night
I see that look in her face she's got that look in her eye

I love lily allen and her voice is amazing
She's so facetious. I love it. Don't worry about societal standards. It's OK to be nearly 30. You'll enjoy it more than being nearly 20. Trust me on this. :)
Love her accent

I am an old farther but I love her style of music. Really snappy with a good beat
I'm past 30.. I have a good job and I don't have a boyfriend. I do have a wonderful son and I'm the happiest I've ever been. Ladies.. You make your own happiness. Happiness lives within you not outside of you����
This song is explains some of my worst fears
Some part of me is saying, this is really depressing. Another part says,"Come on! Snap along!"
Exactly meesh, lol love this song!
Basicly get a boyfriend or your doomed

I'm like obsessed with Lily Allen. All of her songs are just great. I can't help but sing.
Umm why are people now comparing this 22 and taylorswifts 22? They just happen to have the same name.... why does everyone have to judge her

Cool song but that comment bellow me doesn't work

Don't read this because it actually works you will be kissed on the nearest possible Friday by the love of your life. Tomorrow will be the best day of your life. However if you don't post this on 3 songs, you will die in 3 days. Now you've started reading this don't stop. This is so scary post this on at least 5 songs in 143 minutes. Then when you're done look at your screen and your lovers name will be there.

She must have a hard life, because she finds a ways to capture the dark sides of life, and turn it into a funny and quirky song!
