Lily Allen on Vinyl

You ask me lover

What's the point

Can't you see

That there's not one


Yet at the same time

One exists

Yes - perhaps

The greatest point of all


It's because I can

That is why

And want to

So one day - I will


No, not to spite you

That's not me

You know that

C'mon now listen


Who cares what science

Says of sound

This object

Could alter my world


If I possesed it

Lily Allen

On Vinyl

A big, round L.P


A true work of art

Lilys' art

Existing beyond its form

I can hear it now!


Every note pressed


Filling the air

With its captured sound


Yet I can hear you argue

Making a scene

Missing the point

Trying to persuade me


That C.D's better

Clearer sound

More modern too

But that's never it


For years I've wanted

That record

I'd watch it

Go round and around


Yet for years I've chosen

Not to buy

But to deny

Myself the pleasure


Often I have thought

I'll buy it

Sit and watch

Its nothingness go


But I loved all that


Simple fact

That I did not own it


But now soon I will

Hold it here


Its nothingness gone


And I will play it

Night and day

Untill you see

It's because we can.
