Songs & Stories

I´m sure you must have heard about Adele. She´s a wonderful singer with a unique voice. 

Her full name is Adele Laurie Blue Adkins and she was born to single mother Penny Adkins on 5 May 1988 in Tottenham, North London. She is estranged from her Welsh father Mark Evans. She started singing at the age of four years and has stated the Spice Girls heavily influenced her decision to start.

She came from a non-musical family but a very supportive one. Adele said that her mother used to set up a stage show for her in their own home with Adele being the performer and her mother's friends being the audience. 

One of the UK’s best-selling singer/songwriters and having taken some time away from the music industry after the birth of her first child, Angelo, she is now working on her third album. 

She has broken through the music industry at a relatively young age, particularly owing it to her distinctive voice.

Adele - Someone Like You Lyrics

I heard that you’re settled down.
That ........ found a girl and you’re married now.
I heard that your ............. came true.
Guess she gave you things I didn’t ........ to you.

Old friend, why are you so ............?
Ain’t like you to hold back, or hide .............. the light.

I hate to turn up ............ of the blue uninvited,
But I couldn’t stay ................., I couldn’t fight it.
I had hoped you’d see my ................ and that you’d be reminded
That for me, it isn’t over.

Never mind, I’ll find someone ............. you.
I wish nothing but the best for you too.
Don’t forget .........., I beg, I'll remember you said:
“Sometimes it lasts in love but sometimes it hurts instead”
Sometimes it lasts in love but sometimes it hurts instead. Yeah.

You know how the time .............
Only yesterday was the time of our ...............
We were born and raised in a .................. haze.
Bound by the surprise of our ................. days.

I hate to turn up out ........... the blue uninvited,
But I couldn’t ........... away, I couldn’t fight it.
I had hoped you’d see my face and that you’d ............. reminded
That for me, it isn’t over.

Never mind, I’ll find ............................. like you.
I wish nothing but the best ............... you too.
Don’t forget me, I beg, I'll remember you ...........:
“Sometimes it lasts in love but sometimes it hurts instead”.

Nothing compares, no worries or cares.
Regrets and ........................; they’re memories made.
Who would have known ......................... bittersweet this would taste?

Never mind, I’ll find someone like you.
I wish ...................... but the best for you.
Don’t forget me, I beg, I'll remembered you said:
“Sometimes it lasts in ................ but sometimes it hurts instead”

Never mind, I’ll find someone like you.
I .......... nothing but the best for you too.
....................... forget me, I beg, I'll remembered you said:
“Sometimes it lasts in love but sometimes it ................... instead”
Sometimes it lasts in love but sometimes it hurts instead. Yeah.
