10 Gorgeous Adele Lyrics That Will Tear Your Goddamn Heart OUT

 adele lyrics

Pass the tissues.

In addition to being a stunning curvy girl with a gorgeous face and wicked set of pipes, Adele is also a brutally honest lyricist. Her words are diary-real.

She opens up her chest and lets the contents of her heart spill out. Many of her love songs on her best-selling albums 1921 and her newly released 25, are about love, but it’s not a romanticized version of the concept. She isn’t afraid to revel in the pain, to crystallize it in words and melodies, and to make it sound pretty.

To celebrate our love of Adele, we’ve assembled her best lyrical declarations about love, for better or for worse:

1. “First Love”

So little to say, but so much time
Despite my empty mouth
The words are in my mind
Please wear the face
The one where you smile
Because you lighten up my heart when I start to cry.


2. “Someone Like You”

You know how the time flies
Only yesterday was the time of our lives
We were born and raised
In a summer haze
Bound by the surprise of our glory days.


3. “Chasing Pavements”

Should I give up
Or should I just keep chasin’ pavements?
Even if it leads nowhere?
Or would it be a waste?
Even if I knew my place
Should I leave it there?
Should I give up?
Or should I just keep chasin’ pavements?


4. “If It Hadn’t Been For Love”

Never woulda run through the blindin’ rain
Without one dollar to my name
If it hadn’t been, if it hadn’t been for love
Never woulda seen the trouble that I’m in
If it hadn’t been for love
Woulda been gone like a wayward wind
If it hadn’t been for love.


5. “Hello”

Hello from the other side
I must have called a thousand times
To tell you I’m sorry for everything that I’ve done
But when I call you never seem to be home
Hello from the outside
At least I can say that I’ve tried
To tell you I’m sorry for breaking your heart
But it don’t matter, it clearly doesn’t tear you apart anymore.


6. “Rolling in the Deep”

The scars of your love remind me of us
They keep me thinking that we almost had it all
The scars of your love, they leave me breathless
I can’t help feeling
We could have had it all.


7. “One and Only”

I dare you to let me be your
Your one and only
Promise I’m worthy to hold in your arms
So come on and give me the chance
To prove that I’m the one who can
Walk that mile until the end starts.


8. “When We Were Young”

Let me photograph you in this light
In case it is the last time
That we might be exactly like we were
Before we realized
We were sad of getting old
It made us restless
It was just like a movie
It was just like a song.


9. “Set Fire to the Rain”

My hands, they’re strong
But my knees were far too weak
To stand in your arms
Without falling to your feet.


10. “He Won’t Go”

Reminded by things I find
Like notes and clothes you left behind
Wake me up, wake me up when all is done
I won’t rise until this battle’s won
My dignity’s become undone
But I won’t go
I can’t do it on my own
If this ain’t love, then what is?
I’m willing to take the risk.
