As Long As I Got You è il nuovo singolo di Lily Allen, quinto estratto da Sheezus, album flop pubblicato lo scorso maggio.

Il brano fa seguito ai precedenti “Hard out Here“, “Air Balloon“, “Our Time“, “URL Badman” ed il promozionale “Sheezus“.

Nonostante l’ultimo disco a livello commerciale sia stato deludente, la Allen non demorde e lo rilancia con questa canzone, accompagnata dal video ufficiale, il quinto in otto mesi.

As Long As I Got You è una uptempo country pop, scritta dalla cantante insieme a Karen Poole e Greg Kurstin che’ha anche curato la produzione.

Il filmato del brano è stato girato nel giugno 2014 durante il festival di Glastonbury, evento in cui la Allen mancava da ben 5 anni. La cantautrice ha scelto questa location, in quanto per lei ha un significato speciale: è infatti lì che nel 2009 fece conoscenza dell’attuale marito.

Di seguito potete leggere il testo in inglese e vedere il videoclip diretto da Chris Sweeney e prodotto da Joshua Smith per Good Egg.

Testo As Long As I Got You – Lily Allen
It seems like only yesterday you were with somebody else
Soon as it was over though I had claimed you for myself
Didn’t take me long before I had made myself to yours
Glad to leave the past behind and I’m glad to close the door

Because you know I love ya
Because you know I love ya

So far has been so good, it seems we stand test of time
You never call me baby but you refer to me as mine
What I like the best is how you can keep me on my toes
Staying home with you is better than sticking things up my nose

I had that awful feeling, that I needed help
My life had lost this feeling, but you saved me from myself
As long as I’ve got you and we can be
together and forever just you and me, well that’s swell

You sleep with your mouth wide open and you go to the park alone
You only cook from frozen but I don’t ever hear you moan
You let me lie in bed when you’re doing breakfast with the kids
Landing on my feet with you, I’m so happy with is how we live

Because you know I love ya
Because you know I love ya

I had that awful feeling, that I needed help
My life had lost this feeling, but you saved me from myself
As long as I’ve got you and we can be
together and forever just you and me, well that’s swell

I had that awful feeling, that I needed help
My life had lost this feeling, but you saved me from myself
As long as I’ve got you and we can be
together and forever just you and me, well that’s swell

As long as I’ve got you and we can be
together and forever just you and me, well that’s swell

As long as I’ve got you and we can be
together and forever just you and me, well that’s swell
