Back to Black (2024) Movie Script

'Ladies and gentlemen, this is...
'Amy Winehouse!'
'I want people to hear my voice
'and just forget their troubles
for five minutes.
'I want to be remembered
for being a singer...
'...for sell-out concerts and sell-out
West End and Broadway shows.
'For just being me.'
God, no wonder I got
into drama school, "for just being me"!
I can't believe you've still got
a copy of this, Nan.
- What was I, like, thirteen?
- Yeah, something like that.
Sylvia said you had a voice
like Judy Garland.
Oh, yeah, was that before
or after they expelled me?
You never did any schoolwork, Amy!
I just love you in these photos, Nan.
You're like the ultimate
fifties pin-up girl.
- Look at you! You look like Audrey Hepburn!
- Oh, you think so?
I know so!
- You are my style icon.
- Oh!
I mean, look, you always have been,
but now it's official, so how do you feel?
- 'Style icon', me?
- Yeah!
- Oh, look, singing at Ronnie Scott's here.
- Ooh, I met 'em all there.
- Ella Fitzgerald...
- Ah!
- Matt Munro.
- Tony Bennett.
Oh! Anthony Benedetto,
the Blessed One!
In voice... and trousers.
Oh, cute.
From Osidge Primary School
to sell-out concerts.
I believe it's gonna happen
one of these days, I really do.
A voice like yours, got to.
Oi! Oi! Oi!
I'll have that, thanks.
Can I borrow this memory box, Nan?
Yeah, as long as you promise
to look after it.
- Who wants a top-up?
- I won't say no. Please!
You sing better than this lot, Ava.
Fly me to the moon
Let me play amongst the stars
- Now we're talking.
- Let me see what Spring is like
- On Jupiter and Mars
- Angel.
In other words
- Hold my hand
- Oh!
In other words
- Darling, kiss me
- Here we go!
Here he comes!
- Fill my heart with song
- Mitchell Winehouse!
- Whoo!
- And let me swing for ever more
Cos, Renee, you are all
I worship and adore
In other words
Please be true
In other words
I love...
- Aah!
- That's lovely.
Whoo! Turn it, driver!
Oh... how can some people
not get this? It's genius!
Oi! Driver!
- Yes, madam?
- How come some people don't like jazz?
- They're mad.
- You ever met a sane jazz fan?
- No.
- Well, maybe we're the mad ones, then.
Too right.
How's your brother doing
at university?
Why don't you ask him?
Probably smoking and sleeping,
eating Pot Noodle.
You know, the usual student stuff.
I worry about drugs.
Students love 'em.
Yeah, well, maybe you should worry
about Mum instead. She isn't well.
- Do you have to make it so difficult?
- Didn't say anything.
You don't have to.
Your face says it all.
Tell your mum I said hello,
and your brother to call me.
He never answers when I try.
Dad, Dad...
Come in for five minutes,
say hi to Mum.
I just miss you.
I know.
Look, I've got a gig on Sunday,
at a pub off Hanger Lane.
Will you come?
I promised Jane
I'd take her to her mum's.
- Right.
- I'll do the next one, yeah?
- Oi, soppy drawers!
- I'm not talking to you!
You forgot this.
You only had it ten minutes.
- Take care of it.
- Love you, too.
- Mum!
- I'm upstairs, love!
Oh, a boy called, kept calling...
...this afternoon, Jack.
- Oh.
- Who is he?
- Karen's boyfriend.
- Oh, Karen's boyfriend?
And Chris has been calling you as well.
Your actual boyfriend.
Cool. See you later.
Emulate... all the shit my mother hates.
All the shit my mama hates
I can't help but demonstr...
I can't help...
I can't help...
But demonstrate
my Freudian fate...
once he was a family man
So, surely I would never
ever go through it first-hand
All the shit my mama hates
I can't help but demonstrate
my Freudian fate
My alibi for taking your guy
History repeats itself,
it fails to die
And animal aggression
is my downfall
I don't care about what you got,
I want it all
It's bricked up in my head
And shoved under my bed
And I question myself again,
what is it about men?
My destructive side
has grown a mile wide
And I...
And I question myself again,
what is it about men?
What is it about men?
I tried calling a few times this evening.
I don't know if Janis told you.
I thought you might be back earlier,
so I thought I'd just turn up,
try my luck...
- I got you these.
- Ah...
Amy... Amy, can we just, like...?
Look, I thought that we could
just chill out for a bit first,
and then... you know,
listen to Massive Attack,
and then maybe, whatever.
Was your maid away on holiday again?
For fuck's sake, what? Hello?
'Amy? Amy, it's me, Tyler.'
Tyler, you fucking mentalist.
What time is it?
'Ah, it's just gone twelve o'clock.'
Listen, Amy, I'm here
with my manager Nick.
- You know the one I gave your demo to?
- 'Am I on speakerphone?'
Yeah, hi, Amy.
It's Nick Shymansky from 19 here.
- Sorry to wake you.
- 'I'll let you off.'
So, I've had a listen to your demo, and...
Yeah, can we have a chat?
It'd be great to see you play live.
19 Management.
That's Simon Fuller, right?
- That's right.
- 'Girl Power' Simon Fuller?
Do you know what 'Girl Power'
means to me, Nick?
Sarah Vaughan.
Dinah Washington. Lauryn Hill.
That's real 'Girl Power', mate.
- 'I understand.'
- What do you understand?
- Erm..
- 'You need to know this now.'
I ain't no fucking Spice Girl.
'But you have a lovely day,
Nick Shymansky.'
And I'll have a good think
about that chat, yeah?
Love you, Tyler, babe.
See you later.
Cats used to harmonise like...
It's been three weeks
since you been looking for your friend
The one you let hit it
and never called you again
Remember when he told you
he was 'bout the Benjamins?
You act like you ain't hear him
then give him a little trim to begin
How you think
you're really gonna pretend
Like you wasn't down
and you called him again?
Plus, when you give it up so easy
you ain't even foolin' him
If you did it then,
then you'd probably fuck again
Guys, you know
you'd better watch out
Some girls, some girls
are only about
That thing, that thing, that thing
That thing, that thing,
that thing
Yo, yo, come again
My French men, come again
My sister, come again
Yeah, yeah, yeah...
I love it!
Thank you.
- Hello!
- Whoo!
You should be stronger
than me
You've been here seven years
longer than me
Don't you know
you're supposed to be the man?
Not pale in comparison
to who you think I am
You always wanna talk it through,
I'm okay
I always have to comfort you
every day
But that's what I need you to do
Are you gay?
With EMI, Virgin bidding could be
north of a 250k advance.
I don't care about the money.
I'd live in a hole if it meant I could meet
Ray Charles, d'you know what I mean?
Amy, you've got a voice
that is right up there.
It's one of the best I've ever heard.
I mean, you gotta know that.
I know. You gotta remember,
I listen to it every day.
- Oh, do you want ice in your voddy?
- No.
No? Hardcore.
- I love 'Stronger Than Me'.
- Hmm. Best tune you've written yet.
The hairs on the back of my neck,
okay, sizzling.
Is the guy real, the guy you sing about
in the song?
Erm... sort of, yeah.
My heart goes out to him, right?
Who is it?
Come on. Seriously?
- I don't mean most of it.
- Well, what part do you mean?
- The 'Are you gay?' bit? 'Lady boy' bit?
- It's not like that.
That's what it says, though, right?
- Fuck this.
- Don't!
What? Don't what?
There's nothing left to be said, is there?
It's all there in your fucking song!
You know what? I hope you find whatever
the fuck it is that you're looking for.
But you are far too fucked up for me.
Maybe don't include that glowing reference
when you speak to Island.
But that's what I need you to do
Are you gay?
I've forgotten all of young love's joy
- Feel like a lady
- What time do you call this?
And you, my lady boy
- The respect I made you earn...
- I'm Amy. Amy Winehouse.
Thought you had
so many lessons to learn
I said, you don't know what love is,
get a grip!
Sounds as if you're reading
from some other tired script
Cos I'm not gonna meet
your mother anytime
I just wanna grip your body
over mine...
Shit, girl, no way you're only eighteen.
I've forgotten all of young love's joy
Feel like a lady,
and you my lady boy
You should be stronger than me
You should be stronger
than me
You should be stronger than me
Should be stronger than me
Hey, hey, hey!
- Fantastic.
- Yeah, brilliant.
She's at Ronnie's!
Come on!
That's right!
That's right!
Oi, mate? You see that?
That's my daughter. That's my Amy.
'Well, I always said
I never wanted to write about love,
'and then I went and did that anyway.
'I've got about seven or eight songs
that are about this guy.'
- 'Is that your ex-boyfriend?'
- 'Yep.'
'I wouldn't want to be
an ex-boyfriend of yours...'
You look gorgeous, darling.
You really do.
- It was a great make-up department.
- No! It's you. So natural.
'And this surprised me, you're managed
by the company that look after S Club 7,
'used to look after the Spice Girls,
Simon Fuller.
'Have they tried to mould you in any way?
'Have people asked you to do things,
to change the way you look...?'
'Yeah. One of them tried to mould me
into a big triangle shape, and I went, "No!"
'You know, I've got my own style...'
You're so confident, it's great.
I had a couple of drinks beforehand.
'I think she's one of the most exciting
and brilliantly talented vocalists...'
Oh, yeah! That's my girl!
I couldn't resist him
His eyes were like yours
His hair was exactly
your shade of brown
Now, he's just not as tall
But I couldn't tell
when it was dark
And I was lying down
You are everything
He means nothing to me
And I...
...can't even remember his name
- So, why you so upset?
- Amy?
I'm in the bath!
- Who's that bloke?
- What bloke?
- The boy?
- Er...
Troy. No... Nigel.
- It's Nigel, I think.
- You think?
Oh, go and make yourself a cup of tea,
I'll be down in a minute.
We're gonna be late!
I know that bothers you.
Oh, God.
Having a spliff's like having a cup of tea!
- I thought you didn't do drugs.
- I don't. It's weed!
It's drugs!
- Are you high now?
- No.
- Amy?
- No!
- You're three quarters of an hour late.
- That's a result for Amy.
- You can't keep these people waiting, Amy.
- Why? They too important to wait?
One, yes, and two, yes.
They pay your wages.
I told you before, Nick,
I don't care about the money.
Is Mitch joining us?
Don't look at me.
Mitch Winehouse does what he wants.
Plus, he's my dad, isn't he?
Hello, boys.
Erm... huge, huge, huge kudos
off the back of the awards circuits.
The Brit nominations, the MOBOs,
Mercury Prize,
and of course the big win at the Ivor's.
Yeah, erm...
'Frank' peaked at 13 in the UK.
We were hoping for Top 10, but...
...strong competition from Jamie Cullum,
Katie Melua and Joss Stone.
So, in light of that, we unfortunately don't
think that 'Frank' will travel to America.
Yeah, so, the plan is
to get you back in the studio...
Hang on! Hang on...
You're basically telling me, you think
'Frank' is too crap for the Yanks?
- No, no, they'll love it. We're sure of it.
- Alright.
It's just like, whether they would buy it,
is a different thing.
No, sorry. This is bollocks.
Do I have a say in this?
Look, Amy, we only get one chance
to break the States.
We think, with just a little bit
more work on your stage act...
Oh... on my stage act?
Can you explain that to me, please?
My fucking stage act?
Erm... we were discussing this
with Nick before you arrived.
Yeah, erm...
So, there's a feeling that the guitar,
it's getting in the way of your performance.
So, we want to hand
the guitar duties to Dale,
and allow you to concentrate
on the singing,
so that they audience
can connect with you more.
- What the fuck does that mean?
- Amy!
No! You don't think they're connecting
with me now, Nick?
- We just wanna see more of you on stage.
- We?
I really think it's worth looking at, Amy.
I have seen you turning your back
on the audience a few times, Amy.
You're on stage, staring
at your brass bands on the guitar,
when you should be sharing the song
with the audience.
It's called stage craft.
Here, you see me, when I sing...
- Oh, here we go.
- When I sing, eye contact all the time.
I'm making the punters feel special,
put on a show.
What are you saying?
These boys know what they're talking about,
so let's listen to 'em, eh?
You can crack the States
when you're good and ready,
but there's no point in shutting
the stable door after the horse has bolted.
- Now, am I right or am I right?
- Thank you, Mitch. Precisely.
"But, in the meantime, Amy,
go find yourself a stage personality."
You know what?
I'm gonna go for a cigarette.
You lot can have a good chat
about what clown costume
you want me wearing
for my fucking stage act! Pricks!
Oh, that's normal Amy behaviour.
- Katie fucking Melua!
- Amy, come back...
No! No!
I get really nervous
when I get up on stage.
And now you've basically told me
I haven't got any stage presence.
- Great! That's really gonna help...
- Amy, no...
Oh, fuck off, Nick!
I'm not fucking Cole Porter, Nick.
I don't wake up in the morning
and bang out ten hits by lunch.
I need to live my songs.
- So, that's what I'm gonna go and do.
- What?
I'm gonna take some time off,
so things can actually happen to me again.
Then... maybe,
I'll get back in your studio.
So, you know what?
See you whenever.
- Where are you off to, then?
- I'll get the Tube back.
- What are we gonna tell Mitch?
- Tell him he's a big fat joke!
And to the victor... the spoils!
Barman, a pint of your classiest
German lager, please, at the double.
Por favor.
Hey, big spender
Boys! Gypsy Rose, 16-1,
early doors at Kempton!
- Go on, son!
- Cheeky tenner on that, thank you.
Ha! Won by a nose
did Gypsy Rose.
Now, to happily piss it all up the wall.
I like your tattoo.
I like yours.
Get her a drink, quick.
She likes my tattoo.
- What you on?
- Rickstasy.
Ecstasy I've heard of, but...
Southern Comfort, vodka,
Bailey's and banana liqueur.
- Over ice.
- Yeah, don't forget the fucking ice!
Jesus, I'm pissed just thinking about it.
D'you get all that, Gilly?
You got it, mate.
- Thank you.
- Don't thank me, thank Gypsy Rose.
Bloody hell, what's this?
A vision is forming in my lager-ball.
It's very clear what the future holds
for you, young lady.
You're gonna get very drunk
and smoke lots of fags.
Fuck me, what's that?
I see a dirty, sweaty,
horrible doner kebab
on your way home,
with bare chilli sauce.
- I don't like chilli sauce.
- Honey and mustard, then.
More like it.
See, bosh! Lager-ball never lies.
Right, I'm off to fleece my mates at pool.
Nice to meet you, darlin'.
- I'm Blake, by the way.
- Amy.
Stay lucky, Amy.
Yes, yes, yes!
Now, then, how we doing? Alright?
What we on? What we on?
I'm in the bees and honey. Likewise.
Same again? Same again, yeah?
And again, Gilly!
Play the winner.
Oh, that'll be me.
Rack 'em up, then.
What rules are we playing,
US or UK?
UK. Always UK.
You're just a little boy
underneath that hat...
Are you taking the piss?
What? It's a tune.
You think everything
gets handed to you free
- Are you trying to make a mug out of me?
- What?
- What?
- Sing.
- No.
- Go on, sing.
- A little one.
- Do one.
I gotta know you
now and then...
Go on. Ha-ha!
Madness, man.
I'm playing pool with Amy Winehouse,
listening to my favourite
Amy Winehouse song,
with... Amy Winehouse.
Can this day get any more scintillating?
Never know your luck, son.
I gotta know you now
We may never meet again
I gotta know you now and then...
- Oh, really?
- Yeah, I'm beating you.
Ooh, so close!
I'm not ruling you out
I'm just in doubt
As to what you say
you're all about
Yeah, I gotta know you now
We may never meet again
I've gotta show you now
- 'Fuck Me Pumps.'
- Oh, God, here we go.
- 'Fuck Me Pumps' is off its head, yeah.
- Thank you.
Like its author.
- Obviously.
- Obviously.
- But it has me in stitches every time.
- I like that, I like stitches.
- With your big empty purse...
- Oh, my God!
Every week it gets worse
At least your breasts cost
more than hers
- Not... not very feminist, though.
- Well, I don't know...
I just don't like girls being silly,
wasting their potential.
Same as skinny indie boys
that pretend they're Pete Docherty.
Anyway, I'm not a feminist.
I like boys too much.
I'm just joking, obviously.
Anyway, you know what I do.
What do you do?
I am a video production assistant.
Oh, wow.
So, you make tea?
No, I don't make tea, Winehouse.
I make the best tea.
Amazing. I love tea. Will you come over
and make me a brew?
- Okay. Yeah. Where do you live?
- I live in Jeffrey's Place, Camden Town.
- I know it, yeah. It's nice.
- Hmm.
Where do you live?
Erm... sort of sofa surfing
at the moment.
I'm in between a couple of things,
like... yeah.
I like to sabotage myself.
Do you know what I mean?
Not even like, just enjoy.
Yeah. I get that.
- I like your style, Winehouse.
- Oh, yeah?
Yeah. Yeah. What do you call it, then,
the Winehouse style?
Dunno. It's a bit vintage, innit?
- A bit of an anachronism, aren't I?
- Eh?
You know, like an old school girl
but living now.
Right. Yeah. Deep.
Don't you think things actually
were better, though, in the olden days?
- Totally.
- That saying is actually true.
- Like better films, better music.
- Right.
- Better books, like Fellani... Fellini.
- Fellini, yeah.
- Truman Capote...
- Yep.
- Er... The Beatles.
- The Beatles. The Specials.
- Yeah.
- I mean, I dunno, they're old.
- Well, a little bit, now.
- A little bit.
My favourite writers are people like,
you know, Bukowski, Hunter S Thompson,
people that can actually show you
how fucking ugly life is.
You're stupid if you don't drink
yourself silly, d'you know what I mean?
Yes. Yeah, yeah, yeah.
Do you know The Shangri-Las?
- What?
- Amy, The Shangri-Las.
I've never heard of them.
Only the best sixties girl band ever.
All, like, excitement, atmosphere...
How can I put this?
...emotional turbulence.
- Hmm, nicely put.
- Thank you. Hold that, hold that.
My folks were always...
- 'Is she really going out with him?'
- 'Well, there she is. Let's ask her.'
'Betty, is that Jimmy's ring
you're wearing?'
'Gee, it must be great, riding with him.
Is he picking you up after school today?'
- 'Mm-hmm.'
- 'By the way, where'd you meet him?'
- I met him at the candy store
- Oh, my God!
- 'You get the picture?'
- 'Yes, we see.'
That's when I fell
for the leader of the pack
Ho, ho, ho!
My folks were always
putting him down
Down, down
They said he came
from the wrong side of town
What d'you mean when you say that
he came from the wrong side of town?
They told me he was bad
But I knew he was sad
That's when I fell
for the leader of the pack...
What are you doing?
I was just doing a bit
of Shangri-Las with Amy.
This is Amy, the singer.
Yeah. That's me. Hello.
This is Becky.
Let's go. I'm hungry.
See you later. It was nice chatting.
What... Blake?
Don't forget that cup of tea, yeah?
Nice pumps, Becky.
Why not take all of me?
Fucking hell, Jules.
Scared me.
Sick again, are we?
Oh... Yeah, way too much to drink.
Hmm... Yeah, it's the drink, obviously.
I'm being woken up all the time
by you puking whatever up.
- I'm on holiday, aren't I?
- Yeah, but I got work in the morning.
Alright. I'll be sick quieter.
How about not being sick?
I met someone tonight, Jules.
- Oh, yeah?
- Yeah.
We got on..., really got on.
Just had a few drinks, though,
you know, nothing else.
He had the most gorgeous blue eyes.
There was a moment when we just
looked at each other, you know.
No words needed, we just...
...melted into each other.
No embarrassment.
- Just felt so... warm.
- Yeah.
- What did you say his name was?
- Blake.
- Jewish?
- Didn't ask, but no.
Well, how do you know?
He had loads of tattoos.
Well, so have you!
What happened to that lovely manager
you brought back for dinner?
Eh? A nice Jewish boy.
- Nick?
- Yeah.
He's not really my type, Nan.
You've got an eye for the bad boys,
Amy Winehouse.
He didn't seem 'bad bad'.
- He played me The Shangri-Las.
- Oh!
What a sound!
- Nearly had me crying in the pub.
- Yeah...
I remember them.
Queens, New York.
- That melodrama, I just loved it.
- Yeah.
They were pretty girls, and all.
- Just like you.
- Oh, thanks, Nan.
Er... no, I'm stopping for a bit, love.
Yeah, the doctor said
I should give it a rest, so... so I am.
I've been meaning to tell you
for a while, but, erm...
I've got lung cancer.
It's pretty far gone, they've said, so...
What do you want in your bagel?
Do you want cream cheese,
smoked salmon?
Bit of egg or... tuna?
Bit of tuna to start, yeah?
Dressed in black
He walks alone,
a shadow in the night
Each time he walks by my window
I can't hold the tears
from my eyes
We're still so much in love
Why can't they realise
That every time he looks at me
I long to feel his lips on mine
I live on just the memory
of him caressing me...
Blake? What the fuck?
They said he was
much too wild for me
They said a whole lot of things
But there are some things
they could never understand
That a girl can tell by the way
a boy holds her hand
Or maybe they thought
we were too young to be in love...
Well, I don't care what people say
This girl's love is getting stronger
with each passing day
That every time he looks at me
I long to feel his lips on mine
I live on just the memory
Of him caressing me
So soft
So warm
So soft
So warm
But now he's gone
But now he's gone...
If I ever leave you, baby...
Well... guess you're not hungry now.
Are you joking me?
I'm starving. Thanks.
- Er... do you partake?
- No.
Not for me.
Class A drugs are for mugs.
Oh, that's a really nice catchphrase.
- I thought you were rock 'n' roll.
- No.
- I'm jazz.
- Have you got an issue with it, then?
Well, I'm not gonna call the police
or anything. But I think it's stupid, yeah.
Well, I think weed's stupid,
so there you go.
Plus, I don't think that
you really think that I'm a mug,
so, therefore,
by my sheer existence...
...I've disproven your theory
about Class As and mugs, haven't I?
Yeah, well...
I haven't really thought about it
like that before.
Maybe it's a load of bollocks
and you're still a mug.
What are you doing?
Fuck's sake!
Look what you done,
you fucking donut.
Yes. Yes, I will.
What's that?
I thought you were asking me
to marry you.
That's embarrassing.
- Hiya! Can we get two tickets, please?
- Absolutely. Thank you very much.
- Here's your receipt and your tickets.
- Thank you, darling.
- Thank you.
- Bye!
- What do you want to see first?
- It's got to be the chinchillas.
- The chinchillas?
- You got any chinchillas?
Ha! Why do you want to see
the chinchillas?
Oh, my...
Come on! Come on!
- What even is it?
- I don't know!
It's one of the ugliest things
I've ever seen.
Is it a pig?
Come on!
Oh! Oh, no!
Last time I was here,
I was a kid and I saw six cubs.
- Six, yeah?
- Hmm...
That's how many I want.
You okay with that?
Did I not tell you?
Mazel tov.
- Are you having a nice day?
- Yeah. Are you?
- Yeah.
- Yeah?
- Yes! It's fun.
- I'm loving it.
- Hello, Nan. It's me, Amy.
- And me, Blake.
- 'Who?'
- Blake. Hello, Nan.
Yeah, that's Blake. Remember
I spoke to you about him the other day?
- 'Is that you, Amy?'
- Yeah, and Blake.
Shut up! It's Blake and Amy,
and we're at the zoo.
- On a date.
- 'Oh, how romantic.'
Yeah, we're on a date,
and we went to see the lions.
And lioness.
And we were thinking about you.
Blake said he wanted to say hello, alright?
- Hello, Nan.
- 'I love London Zoo.'
I hear you're a bit of a lioness yourself.
'Last time I was there,
my Alec was still alive...'
Well, it'll be lovely to meet you one day.
- 'Sorry.'
- Yeah?
'Oh, yes, sorry.'
- Hello?
- 'Sorry, love.'
- Are you alright, Nan?
- 'Ta da, love.'
- Don't fucking...
- Fucking hell!
Fucking... hell.
I'm in your pocket now. Forever.
Why not over your heart?
Bit late now, babe, innit?
It's that lion again.
- She's trying to wake her fella up.
- Yeah, it's teatime now, innit?
Camden Town!
My people! My place!
Ladies don't sip, they gulp.
Alright, this is another old one.
They're all old ones.
Look, I've been busy, alright?
I'm in love.
So, you know, if you're angry there's
no new album, don't blame me, blame him.
No! Don't be arsey!
He saved me, alright.
From death by boredom.
He's my hero.
Alright. So, this one's actually dedicated
to an old friend of ours, isn't it, Blake?
Yeah. Still can't believe
you went out with her!
When you walk in the bar,
and you're dressed like a star
Rocking your f-me pumps
And a man notice you
with your Gucci bag crew
Can't tell who he's looking to
Cos you all look the same
Everyone knows your name
And that's your whole claim to fame
Never miss a night
Cos your dream in life
is to be a footballer's wife
You don't like players,
that's what you say
But you really wouldn't mind
a millionaire
All them big ballers,
they don't do nothing for you
But you'd love a rich man
six-foot-two or taller...
What the fuck?
You're more than a fan,
looking for a man
But you end up with one-night stands
He could be your whole life,
if you got past one night...
But that part never goes...
You know, you could've stayed till the end.
Eh? Just a bit of fresh air,
d'you know what I mean?
- Getting a bit sweaty in there.
- No one asked you, did they?
- Oh, right, nice one.
- So, what?
- Yeah, really nice.
- So, what? So, what?
Fucking cokehead!
Instead of watching me.
I'm not just here to watch you.
I'm not a fucking groupie.
Amy, I'm here to have a good time.
But you don't like drugs, yeah,
I get that, but I do.
So, if I wanna have a line,
I'll have a fucking line. Just deal with it.
Here, get a picture.
Get some manners, yeah?
Try asking next time.
Sad. Totally wankered.
- Fucking what?
- Amy!
You alright?
- Don't touch me!
- Fuck...
Oh, fucking...
- Blake!
- Don't.
- Oh, I didn't mean to. I'm sorry.
- Don't!
Amy, love?
What am I doing here?
Well, you rang my doorbell at 02:00am,
in a bit of a state.
Doesn't help you going to work surrounded
by booze all the time, it's dangerous.
- Yeah, I know.
- Do you?
No, Amy.
Amy, you know when Charlie Parker died,
they thought he was 60 and he was 35,
so, do you know it's dangerous?
Yes, Nan.
Gonna make you some eggs,
alright, love?
You have a shower.
Cos you stink of booze and fags.
No, that's just my perfume, Nan.
Chanel Number Pub.
No, thanks.
- Really missed you.
- Yeah?
- Where have you been?
- Just kipping at Joey's.
- I'm really sorry, Blake.
- What the fuck, Amy?
I know. But it was that fucking girl,
she just pushed me over the edge.
Yeah, well, you're always on the edge,
so it don't take much to push you over.
I can't talk to you when you're being
like that, you start hitting and scratching.
- Yeah, I know.
- I'm not a fucking lapdog, Amy.
- I know that.
- I don't give a fuck about your Brit Award.
- Well, it was an Ivor, but I know.
- I'm gonna let you blame me...
...about not making music,
you listening?
Go and make music, if you want.
Or don't, I don't care. Yeah?
Probably run off
with someone famous, anyway.
- What?
- Run off with someone famous.
That's what famous people do,
run off with each other.
Blake... I don't care
about the fame game.
It ain't me.
We might as well call it now. Yeah?
Call what?
- It's not gonna work.
- Blake, don't.
- No. There's your career...
The fact I like taking drugs...
Look at my fucking face, Amy!
What do you want me to say, Blake?
I'm sorry.
Yeah, I'm a fucking horrible drunk.
That fucking girl...
I got viol...
I was angry, I was upset.
So, where does that leave us, then?
Where does it leave me?
More cuts, more bruises...
Cos you're not gonna
stop drinking, are you?
Just do whatever you gotta do, Amy,
but it's without me.
- Stop! What are you doing?
- I'm still your mate.
You're not my fucking mate, Blake!
You're not my mate!
You're my fucking heartbeat,
you're my soul. I love you!
And you love me. Stop doing this,
you're gonna make me cry!
I'm getting back with Becky.
Or trying to, so...
Just fucking leave it, yeah?
Amy, open the door! Amy?
Amy, can you let me in?
- Amy?
- Shut up...
Alright, Nick... I must've fell asleep.
Big night, was it? You okay?
Do you want some water?
- Fucking hell. Let me see this.
- What?
- I'm calling an ambulance.
- What? Nick!
Have you seen your head?
I must've fallen over.
I don't need an ambulance, I'm alright.
You're not alright, Amy.
Look around. None of this is alright.
- Right, I'm calling Mitch.
- Nick!
Look, 999 or Mitch. Which is it?
There's stories about her
kicking off all over Camden.
About her punching people.
Juliette's moved out, it's got so chaotic.
I didn't know that.
I get Amy calls in the early hours
because she's lost somewhere in town.
Okay, she's lost, because she's paralytic.
We need to do something about it cos...
No, go on.
What do we need to do?
- You need to go to a rehabilitation centre.
- Oh, yeah?
- Yes. Now.
- Fuck off, Nick.
Dad, I had one too many.
Yeah, I know I fell over
and hit my head, but...
I fell asleep there cos I was comfy...
Amy, I saw you, okay?
You looked like you had a fit.
- Like an epileptic fit.
- I'd remember that, wouldn't I?
No! Because they happen
when you're unconscious.
They're fucking dangerous, Amy,
they can kill you.
You think I had a fit, I don't agree.
I might've had a blackout, Dad.
And a blackout's okay, then, is it?
It's ridiculous talk, Mitch! It's stupid!
I'm not stupid, Nick.
And I'm fine.
I know, I've stressed everyone out.
I'm sorry.
I don't need to go to rehab.
Music is my rehab, Dad.
It always has been.
I promise, I'll lay off it.
I think she'll be alright.
As long as she promises to be
more aware, and to get back to work.
- Mitch, fuck...
- Nick, rehab's a bit harsh, innit?
The label could drop her
and then where would she be?
You need to pull your fucking finger out!
- You okay with that?
- Obviously not, no.
Here's something else
you might not be okay with.
We've decided to leave 19 Management,
haven't we, Dad?
I don't want Simon Fuller
anywhere near my career anymore.
Wait, what?
If you wanna carry on working with me,
you gotta leave 19, too.
You know I can't do that,
I've got other artists I need to look after.
Not like my Amy.
- Told you I wasn't a fucking Spice Girl.
- Yeah, I remember.
So, why do you keep
treating me like one?
Those that don't know me,
and I think most of you do,
I'm Raye Cosbert,
Amy's new manager at Metropolis.
I've called this meeting today
to let you know Amy's ready.
We've discussed producers
and agree Salaam is the way to go.
But I also want her to meet with a new guy
I rate very highly, Mark Ronson.
My heart is sad and lonely
For you, I sigh
For you, dear, only...
It's just like how I used
to have mine in the sixties.
I'm all for you, body and soul...
Haven't seen many girls
with beehives these days.
What do you think?
It's magnificent.
- Do you think I look like a Shangri-La?
- Yeah.
- And a Ronette.
- Hmm...
You think Blake will like it?
That's all gone, Nan.
I'm sorry, love.
You liked him, didn't you?
- I quite liked him a lot, Nan.
- Yeah.
That's Raye.
He's here to take me to the airport.
- Gonna miss you.
- I don't have to go to New York.
- I know there's producers there but...
- Amy, stop. Shh!
- Just stop.
- I really don't want to leave you.
Shh. Yeah, no, well, you're gonna.
Cos if you don't, I'll gonna belt you.
Here, look.
I got something I want to give you.
Take it off. Yeah, go on, go on.
Lift it up.
That's it. Now.
Can't get rid of me now.
Thank you, Nan.
Come on.
I love you.
I love you so much.
I love you... more than...
you'll ever know.
Now, go on.
You get going before you get me at it.
And when you get to New York,
don't forget to go to Birdland, yeah?
Pay your respects to Charlie Parker.
I will, Nan.
Myself to you
Body and soul...
He left no time to regret
Kept his dick wet
With his same old safe bet
Me and my head high
And my tears dry
Get on without my guy
You went back to what you knew
So far removed
from all that we went through
And I tread a troubled track
My odds are stacked
I go back to black
We only said goodbye with words
I died a hundred times
You go back to her
And I go back to...
I go back to us
I loved you more
It's not enough
You love blow and I love puff
And life is like a pipe
And I'm a tiny penny
rolling up the walls inside
We only said goodbye with words
I died a hundred times
You go back to her
and I go back to...
We are gathered here today
to celebrate the life of Cynthia Levy...
I go back to...
I go back to...
We only said goodbye with words
I died a hundred times
And you go back to her
And I go back to...
We only said goodbye with words
I died a hundred times
You go back to her
And I go back to...
He's killed me.
- There you are.
- Give me two twenty packs, please, Jimmy.
Sure, Amy.
Thank you.
- There's your receipt.
- Thanks, love.
You take care, now.
Excuse me,
are you Amy Winehouse?
Hello, angel. Yeah, I am.
- Can I have your autograph?
- Yeah, course you can.
- What's your name, angel?
- Abby.
Just like my name.
But with Bs.
- We could be sisters.
- Thank you.
I wish I was your mum.
Shh! Don't tell mum.
- One day, Jimmy. One day.
- Yeah, sure, love.
- Over here!
- Here she is! Where's Blake, Amy?
- Do I look like Paris fucking Hilton?
- What's in the bag, Amy?
- Loads of none of your business, pal!
- Looking a bit thin, love!
- Fuck off, lads.
- Come on, Amy, just one more here!
Just fuck off!
- Come on, Amy!
- Amy, this way!
Fuck off, lads!
Sort yourself out!
Over here! Over here!
Amy, over here!
Yeah, so when I was writing
the album, erm...
...I was going through a pretty dark time.
Erm... I...
I was in a relationship with someone...
I was very much in love with, you know.
Very much in love with, but it...
couldn't work, we couldn't be together.
Erm... and he ended up
going back to his ex- girlfriend.
And I didn't really have anything
to go back to, to be honest.
You know, so I was drinking a lot,
playing pool, just being stupid, really.
Erm, so the album's about going
back to a black place in my life.
Well, whatever you channelled,
it worked.
The album's number one around the world,
and it's the highest charting album
from a British female artist
in the US ever.
Yeah, I got some good songs out of it.
I don't write songs to be famous,
d'you know what I mean?
I write songs cos...
I'd don't know what I'd do if I didn't.
I've got to make something good
out of something bad.
Well, it's definitely good. What are you
singing for us today on The Live Lounge?
- Er... it's a track called 'Valerie'.
- Brilliant.
Well, sometimes I go out by myself
And I look across the water
And I think of all the things
what you're doing
In my head I paint a picture
Cos since I come home,
well, my body's been a mess
And I miss your ginger hair
and the way you like to dress
Won't you come on over?
Stop making a fool out of me
Why don't you come on over, Valerie?
Valerie! Whoo!
Why don't you come on over,
That is a fucking toe-tapper.
Yeah, it is a tune, to be fair.
- She's gotta be worth a few quid.
- What d'you mean?
You're not interested?
Shut up, Joey.
It was never about money with her.
Was it about her beating you up?
- What a dickhead you are.
- I'm just saying...
It'd be nice to get a slice of that pie.
You could settle that smack bill,
for starters.
You do owe me,
and I owe someone else.
She's probably well moved on
by now, anyway.
Some fruity famous type.
What, with someone she made
a number one album about?
Saying how much
she loves and misses them?
Hang on... that's you.
Now, if I was a betting man,
and I am,
I'd say you were in
with a good shout there, Blakey boy.
I'm gonna squeeze in there
with her one day.
Well, I'll need to squeeze in there first.
Well, then, you better lose some weight,
cos I'm getting in,
whether you like it or not.
You don't need to get any thinner.
What's going on?
Just on a new diet.
Is it working?
Yeah. Too well, if you ask me.
Well, I did ask you, didn't I?
So, thanks.
What's up?
I gotta go! I love you!
- I love you!
- Amy!
Inside every man
Lives the seed of a flower
If he looks within,
he finds beauty and power
Ring all the bells,
sing and tell the people
that the flower has come
Light up the sky
with your prayers of gladness
And rejoice,
for the darkness has gone
Throw off your fears,
let your heart speak freely
At the sign that a new time is born
D'you fancy a game of pool?
Fuck off.
What are they after?
It's weird.
Some of them are sleeping
in their cars.
- I'm not even that famous.
- I'd say you are to them.
How have you been dealing with it?
I just stay in,
have a few drinks,
knock my front teeth out,
flash them a smile.
Then, I get my alcoholic buzz on,
and go out, give them a show.
They love it.
Stupid pissed up Amy gives them
exactly what they need to get paid.
So, more of them pitch up, you know.
I'm a free breakfast, lunch and dinner
for those cunts.
I just wanna look after you, baby.
And your music?
I don't think I was put on this earth
just to sing.
You know?
I just wanna be with you.
I wanna be a wife.
And I wanna be a mum.
That's life,
and as funny as it may seem
Some people get a big old kick
out of stomping on dreams
But I don't let it,
I don't let it get me down
Cos this old world
just keeps spinning around...
Look there!
Bit of lovely.
Come on, then.
They tried to make me
get a prenup
- But I said no, no, no
- Not funny, baby.
Big myself up
and get back in the race...
Hang on. It's Amy.
Just going outside.
Alright, I can hear you now.
What's up?
'We got married!'
"Congratulations, Ames!
Aw, thanks, Dad!"
Amy, listen to me. Where are you?
And... who have you got married to?
- Well, Blake, obviously. We're in Miami!
- Whoo, whoo, whoo!
Amy, I've...
I've never even met the bloke.
Well, you can meet him now
as my husband. Here you are!
Alright, Pops!
Oh, fucking hell.
Oh, fucking hell.
I'm mad about the boy
And I know it's stupid
- To be mad about the boy...
- Ta-da!
- Beats fucking Gordon Ramsay.
- Oh, too right, baby.
Oh, I got you a little present.
For me.
- You shouldn't have.
- For us.
I love you, wifey.
I love you, too, baby.
That here and there
are traces of the cad
About the boy
Lord knows
I'm not a fool girl
I... really shouldn't care
Lord knows
I'm not a school girl
Who's in the flurry
of her first affair
Will it ever cloy...
this odd diversity of misery and joy?
You may have heard from my...
friends in the press,
that I recently got married.
Yeah, what they forgot to mention,
as usual,
is that I married the fittest,
bestest man...
in the world, Blake.
Where are you, baby?
Fuck's sake!
Wow. Look at you.
- So lucky.
- Ah!
Play it.
Go on, Amy!
There is no greater love
Than what I feel for you
No sweeter song
No heart so true
Amy, get back here!
- There is no greater thrill
- Amy, you fucking loon!
No sweeter song
Than what you sing...
Stop! Stop! Stop!
You're the sweetest thing
That I've ever known
And to think that you are mine...
I just need some cigarettes.
Bless you, darling.
There is no greater love
In all the world...
Excuse me.
Have you seen Amy Winehouse?
Nah, sorry, mate.
Have you seen...? Fuck it!
Excuse me. Excuse me.
Have you seen Amy Winehouse?
- Have you seen her?
- No.
What the fuck is all this about, Amy?
I don't know.
Amy! Amy!
Quick, it's Amy!
Amy, you alright?
Another messy night, Amy?
Move, then! Come on!
Police! Police!
Blake Fielder-Civil, I'm arresting you on
suspicion of causing Grievous Bodily Harm.
- Nah, that's bollocks, mate.
- No, it's not. Any drugs in the house?
- Oh... I think we done 'em all, didn't we?
- Blake...
Go and have a look, will you?
Can you put some pants on, please?
- Can I?
- Yes.
Will someone tell me
what the fuck is going on, please?
Your husband assaulted
a pub landlord and put him in hospital.
He hasn't done anything!
A broken cheekbone
and a fractured eye socket.
So what? Blake!
I'm going with him! Blake! Blake!
Listen. Don't worry your head, babe.
It's a minor.
- I love you!
- Listen, don't worry, yeah?
Blake! Blake! I love you!
- Fuck's sake!
- Blake!
- Amy, I love you.
- Get the fuck off me! Let go!
Get off me!
I'm fine! I'm fine!
- I'm fine!
- How are you doing, Amy?
The druggie got two years!
It took me three men
to get into this dress. Three.
What's that about?
Women, you know, you know.
It takes you three men,
three men to get into a dress,
only one man to get you out of one.
My husband's gonna be out of jail soon.
Who booed?
Nah, who booed?
Cos I will find you...
I'll find your phone,
I'll go into your pocket, find your phone,
and I will text your mum.
Tell her about your bad manners.
Cos they cost nothing,
manners cost nothing.
Let's try again.
My husband's gonna be out of jail soon.
- I wanna go down.
- Yeah.
Don't tell my husband.
Don't tell my husband, y'all!
Nobody stands
in between me and my man
It's me and Mister Jones
What kind of fuckery is this?
You made me miss the Slick Rick gig
And thought that I didn't love you
when I did
Can't believe
you played me out like that
No, you ain't worth guest list
Plus one of all them girls you kissed
You can't keep lying
to yourself like this, like this
Can't believe
you played yourself like this
Ruler's one thing,
but come Brixton
Nobody stands
in between me and my man
Cos it's me and Blake again
Me and Mister Jones
What kind of fuckery are we?
you don't mean dick to me
I might let you
make it up to me, to me
Who's playing Saturday?
What kind of fuckery are you?
Aside from Sammy, you're my...
Best black Jew
I could swear that
we were through, were through
I still wonder about the things you do
Mister Destiny...
Nine and fourteen
Nobody stands
in between me and my man
Cos it's me and Blake again
Me and Blake again
You want me to bring you in
a cup of tea?
Yeah. Please.
You're alright, yeah? Yeah?
Shall we sit down, then?
I can't get any gear.
There's been a drought.
I'm practically clean, except for weed.
- I don't even fucking like weed.
- No.
- Sounds bad.
- Oh, well, not long to go, now.
Well, it'll go quick.
That's easy for you to say,
you're out there having fun.
What do you mean?
My face is getting shoved in the papers
every day cos you're in them.
It seems like you're out on the town
with every Tom, Dick and Harry.
Nothing's going on, baby.
- They said you had another fit.
- Yeah.
I was obviously gonna tell you about it.
I get everything I need from the Daily Mail.
It said you nearly died.
That's one of my worst fears, you know.
The chaplain comes into my cell,
tells me that you're dead.
Everyone out there thinks
that you're the way you are now...
...cos of me.
Well, I don't do anything
I don't wanna do.
Yeah, but the rest of the world
is blaming me.
Anyway... I've had a moment of clarity,
as they say.
- Oh, yeah?
- Yeah.
Yeah, we can't be together.
I want a divorce.
The counsellor in here told me
what we are is toxic co-dependents.
So, we compete to fuck ourselves up
and make the other one feel like shit.
Like... "anything you can do,
I can do better" type thing,
like drugs and self-harm.
I've not cut myself once
since being in here, Amy.
- Was does that tell you?
- I dunno.
What, your fucking razor's blunt.
You can't blame everything on me.
We're drug addicts, Amy.
I've got to fight all the other shit, too,
like your boozing and bulimia,
fans and tours, fucking Mitch.
- I can't fucking win, can I?
- What are you talking about, 'winning'?
Blake, it's not about winning.
It's about us.
That's the fucking problem, Amy. Us.
- Blake...
- I just need a fresh start., yeah?
- Some fucking normality.
- Bullshit!
- For fuck's sake.
- Bullshit, Blake! And you know it.
You know it.
- I'm in your pocket, Blake, forever.
- Guv!
That's the way it is.
- Blake!
- Sit down!
Off anywhere nice this afternoon, Amy?
How's Romeo, then?
He's clean.
- What do you mean?
- I don't wanna talk about it.
Can we go to Soho, please?
What for?
I really miss her.
Are we okay to go in?
Yeah, sure.
It's in the air.
The smell of this place.
Total intoxication.
I can feel Nan's presence in here.
- She'd be so proud of you, honey.
- No.
No, she'd have knocked
my block off by now,
if she knew I was one of them.
One of what?
An addict, Dad.
What, is that what you are, then?
It's just I've never heard you
use that word before, that's all.
No need.
Everyone else says it for me.
Oh. We're enjoying that, carry on.
It's a bit hard
with Amy Winehouse watching.
Don't say that.
Do you want some help with vocals?
Yeah, come and join us.
Should know this one.
For you, I was a flame
Love is a losing game
Five-storey fire
As he came
Love is a losing game
One I wish I'd never played
Oh, what a mess we made
And now the final frame
Love is a losing game
- Played out by the band
- Mummy's gonna get a drink.
Love is a losing hand
And it was more than I could stand
Love is a losing hand...
- Dad?
- Yes, love?
Take me to rehab, please.
You serious?
Let's go.
- Amy! Amy!
- Ready?
- Amy!
- Amy!
Get away from my cab!
Get away from my cab!
Just get in, love.
Fuck off! Get the fuck out!
Will you piss off?

No, no, no
They tried to make me go to rehab,
I said: no, no, no
Yes, I've been black,
but when I come back
You'll know, know, know
I ain't got the time,
and if my Daddy think I'm fine
They tried to make me go to rehab,
I won't go, go, go
I'd rather be at home
with my Blake
I ain't got seventy days
So, there's nothing,
there's nothing you can teach me
That I can't learn
from Mister Hathaway
No, no, I didn't get it a lot in class
But I know it don't come
in a shot glass
They tried to make me go to rehab,
I said: no, no, no
Yes, I've been black,
but when I come back
You'll know, know, know
I ain't got the time,
and if my Daddy think I'm fine
They tried to make me go to rehab,
I won't go, go, go
The man said,
"Why do you think you're here?"
I said, "I got no idea"
Said, "I'll never, never lose my baby"
So, I always keep a bottle near
He said,
"I just think you're depressed"
Hey! Hey, this me...
Yeah, baby
And the rest
They tried to make me go to rehab,
I said: no, no, no, no, no, no, no
Yes, I've been black,
but when I come back
You'll know, know, know
I ain't, I ain't got the time,
and if my Daddy think I'm fine
Hey, they tried to make me
go to rehab
I won't go, go, go!
Good one, Amy!
'And now we're proud to present
the Grammy for Record of the Year.
'This is an award that
Tony won back in 1963,
'for 'I Left My Heart in San Francisco'.'
'And Natalie won
in 1992 for 'Unforgettable'.'
Go on, Amy!
'And the Grammy goes to...
Amy Winehouse!'
Amy! Amy! Amy! Amy!
- Are you proud of me, Mum?
- Oh, I've always been proud of you.
Amy! Amy! Amy!
They want me to say something.
I don't know what to say.
Just keep calm and thank everybody.
Thank you to everyone
at Island Records.
And EMI Publishing.
To Raye-Raye and Joe.
To Mark Ronson and Salaam Remi.
To my mum and dad.
And for London! This is for London!
Cos Camden Town ain't burning down!
Amy! Hey, there she is!
How ridiculous is this?
Five-time Grammy Award winner!
- Hey, we're heading off. You coming?
- No, I...
- I'll catch you up.
- Okay, cool.
You sure? Okay.
Yo! Hey!
Embrace me
My sweet embraceable you
Embrace me
You irreplaceable you
Just one look at you
My heart grows tipsy...
Look at Nan in these photos.
My style icon.
My everything icon.
Yeah. Gorgeous.
Are you okay, love?
Could do with a proper drink,
to be honest.
Being a good girl
at the moment, aren't I?
- You're being a great girl.
- Yeah.
Well, it's not fucking easy.
When you get to New York, maybe we can get
in the studio together, lay a track down.
- Seriously?
- Yeah. We could do 'Fly Me To The Moon'.
- Like Tony Bennett style.
- We'd be good at that one.
It'd be number one
in the dance tracks in no time.
- Yeah! I'll believe that when I see it.
- Alright.
- Amy!
- Amy! Amy!
Dad? I love you.
I love you, too!
Amy, any message for Blake
as he starts his new prison sentence?
Any message for his new girlfriend Sarah
and their new baby?
- Is she really going out with him?
- Well, there she is, let's ask her?
Betty, is that Jimmy's ring
you're wearing?
Gee, it must be great
riding with him
Is he picking you up
after school today?
- Mm-hmm...
- By the way, where'd you meet him?
I met him at the candy store
He turned around and smiled at me,
you get the picture?
Yes, we see
That's when I fell for
the leader of the pack...
And this regret
I got accustomed to
Once it was so right
When we were at our height
Waiting for you in the hotel at night
I knew I hadn't met my match
Every moment we could snatch
I don't know why I got so attached
It's my responsibility
You don't own nothing to me
But to walk away,
I have no capacity
'I want people to hear my voice,
'and just forget their troubles
for five minutes.
'I want to be remembered
for just being me.'
I don't understand
why do I stress the man
When there's so many
bigger things at hand
We could have never had it all,
we had to hit a wall
So, this is inevitable withdrawal
Even if I stop wanting you,
a perspective pushes through
I'll be some next man's
other woman soon
I cannot play myself again,
just be my own best friend
Not fuck myself in the head
with stupid men
He walks away,
the sun goes down
He takes the day,
but I am grown
And in your grey,
in this blue shade
My tears dry on their own
So, we are history,
your shadow covers me
The sky above,
a blaze
He walks away,
the sun goes down
He takes the day,
but I am grown
And in your grey,
in this blue shade
My tears dry on their own
I wish I could say no regrets,
no emotional debts
But as we kiss goodbye,
the sun sets
So, we are history,
your shadow covers me
The sky above,
a blaze that only lovers see
He walks away,
the sun goes down
He takes the day,
but I'm grown
And in your grey,
my blue shade
My tears dry on their own
He walks away,
the sun goes down
He takes the day,
but I am grown
And in your grey,
my deep shade
My tears dry on their own
And in your grey,
my deep shade
My tears dry...
You say
It's time
For us to call it a day
But I will love you anyway
You know
That I don't
Even care what they say
But I'll still love you
Love gives everything
Just to take it away
And I'd give you anything
For you to stay
But if you go now
I won't stand in your way
But I will think of you
Every day
Cos I will love you anyway
