#atozchallenge – Adele Inspires Me

Adele Laurie Blue Adkins… adele-european-tour-0Wow, what a beautiful name. She is a newcomer to my list of people who inspire me. I’d heard of her and had even heard her song “Skyfall” for the James Bond movie. I had not sat down though and just listened to her lyrics. Not until her latest album, 25, came out last year. Suddenly, I was paying attention. Her words have a powerful influence on my soul. Here are the lyrics to one of my favorite songs:

“Hello”

Hello, it’s me
I was wondering if after all these years you’d like to meet
To go over everything
They say that time’s supposed to heal ya
But I ain’t done much healing

Hello, can you hear me?
I’m in California dreaming about who we used to be
When we were younger and free
I’ve forgotten how it felt before the world fell at our feet

There’s such a difference between us
And a million miles

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

Hello, how are you?
It’s so typical of me to talk about myself. I’m sorry
I hope that you’re well
Did you ever make it out of that town where nothing ever happened?

And it’s no secret that the both of us
Are running out of time

So hello from the other side (other side)
I must have called a thousand times (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 (outside)
At least I can say that I’ve tried (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

[4x:]
(Highs, highs, highs, highs,
Lows, lows, lows, lows)
Anymore

Hello from the other side (other side)
I must have called a thousand times (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 (outside)
At least I can say that I’ve tried (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

And here is the video… I think you will understand why she inspires me once you listen to her voice:

Interesting Fact: Adele is a Member of the Order of the British Empire

  1. Adele is topping the charts of my sister’s fav singers and she has been urging me to listen to her as well. I am surely going to that now.

    And going on with the atozchallenge on both your blogs, hats off to you!!!

  2. Hi,
    Visiting from A to Z Challenge. Great theme to continue this challenge. I second your thought, her words are powerful and your post is also interesting.

    Will visit soon..

  3. I love her music, could listen to it for hours, and have. Would love to see her in concert. In fact, she’s the only person I would go see in a concert setting. I hate crowds, but for her, oh yeah! Amazing!
    Thanks for visiting my blog!
