Never mind, I'll find someone like you,
I wish nothing but the best for you, too.
Don't forget me, I beg.
I remember you said,
"Sometimes it lasts in love,
But sometimes it hurts instead." ~
Someone Like You

Quotes[edit]

  • I'm mortified to have to pay 50%! [While] I use the NHS, I can't use public transport any more. Trains are always late, most state schools are shit, and I've gotta give you, like, four million quid – are you having a laugh? When I got my tax bill in from [the album] 19, I was ready to go and buy a gun and randomly open fire.
  • I love seeing Lady Gaga’s boobs and bum. I love seeing Katy Perry’s boobs and bum. Love it. But that’s not what my music is about. I don’t make music for eyes, I make music for ears.
  • I don't really need to stand out, there's room for everyone. Although I haven't built a niche yet, I'm just writing love songs.
    • as quoted in Adele - The Biography (2011), by Chas Newkey-Burden

Song lyrics[edit]

All songs written by Adele, except as noted

19 (2008)[edit]

  • Should I give up,
    Or should I just keep chasing 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 chasing pavements?
    Even if it leads nowhere.
  • You say it's all in my head
    And the things I think just don't make sense
    So where you been then? Don't go all coy
    Don't turn it round on me like it's my fault
    See I can see that look in your eyes
    The one that shoots me each and every time.
    You grace me with your cold shoulder
    Whenever you look at me I wish I was her.
    You shower me with words made of knives
    Whenever you look at me I wish I was her.
  • You said I'm stubborn and I never give in.
    I think you're stubborn 'cept you're always softening.
    You say I'm selfish, I agree with you on that.
    I think you're giving out way too much in fact.
    I say we've only known each other one year;
    You say I've known you longer my dear.
    You like to be so close, I like to be alone.
    I like to sit on chairs and you prefer the floor.
    Walking with each other, think we'll never match at all, but we do.
    But we do, but we do, but we do.
  • Round my hometown,
    Memories are fresh.
    Round my hometown,
    Ooh the people I've met
    Are the wonders of my world.
  • I like it in the city when the air is so thick and opaque
    I love to see everybody in short skirts, shorts and shades
    I like it in the city when two worlds collide
    You get the people and the government
    Everybody taking different sides.
    • Hometown Glory

21 (2011)[edit]

  • There’s a fire starting in my heart
    Reaching a fever pitch,
    It’s bringing me out the dark
    Finally I can see you crystal clear
    Go head and sell me out
    And I'll lay your ship bare.

    See how I leave with every piece of you
    Don’t underestimate the things that I will do.

  • 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.
    Rolling in the deep.
    You had my heart inside of your hand
    And you played it
    To the beat.
    • Rolling in the Deep.
  • Bless your soul, you've got you're head in the clouds,
    You made a fool out of you,
    And, boy, she's bringing you down,
    She made your heart melt,
    But you're cold to the core,
    Now rumour has it she ain't got your love anymore.
  • I can't keep up with your turning tables
    Under your thumb, I can't breathe.

    I won't let you close enough to hurt me, no.
    I won't ask you, you to just desert me.
    I can't give you, what you think you gave me.
    It's time to say goodbye to turning tables.

  • But I set fire to the rain,
    Watched it pour as I touched your face,
    Well it burnt while I cried,
    Cause I heard it screaming out your name, your name!
    I set fire to the rain
    And I threw us into the flames
    Well it felt like something died
    Cause I knew that that was the last time, the last time!
  • Never mind, I'll find someone like you,
    I wish nothing but the best for you, too.
    Don't forget me, I beg.
    I remember you said,
    "Sometimes it lasts in love,
    But sometimes it hurts instead."
