He Wasn't There Lyrics

He wasn't there when I needed him
No, he was never around
His reputation was preceding him
And he was out on the town

It didn't matter if he let me down
I didn't care about the lies
But all I knew was that he loved me very much
He was my hero in disguise

I'm so pleased I never gave up on him
Oh, well you wouldn't believe some of the things that he did
And everyone said you have to give him some time
And I'm glad that I gave it to him 'cause now everything's fine

Now you see I never thought you'd be
A constant person in my life
And I don't think that you would be
If you'd have stayed with your ex wife

I know you wouldn't but there is no need
No need to apologize
Because I know you'll always love me very much
You are my hero in disguise

I'm so pleased I never gave up on him
Oh, well you wouldn't believe some of the things that he did
And everyone said you have to give him some time
And I'm glad that I gave it to him 'cause now everything's fine

You might have thought you didn't teach me much
But you taught me right from wrong
And it was when you didn't keep in touch
Well, it taught me to be strong

And just in case you ever thought I would
I wouldn't change you for the world
Because I know you'll always love me very much
I'll always be your little girl

I'm so pleased I never gave up on him
Oh, well you wouldn't believe some of the things that he did
And everyone said you have to give him some time
And I'm glad that I gave it to him 'cause now everything's fine

My daughter played this to me on thursday last week, we have just got back together after 20 years apart. It made me feel very sad, it rang so true

I think this is a song for a not-so-good father rather than for a boyfriend... It kind of reminds me of my relationship with my father, though I'm not as forgiving as Lily.. he's definitely not a hero

this isn't Lily Allens best song but it's cute. And it is a bit weird with the old people music in the background
