Adele Quotes: The Best Lyrics and Lines from 19, 21 and 25

alt="adele quote"

“I don’t make music for eyes. I make music for ears.”

After the successes of 19 and 21, Adele is back with her third studio album, 25. In less than one week, the album has made history selling over 3 million copies in the US alone. It has also broken records in the UK and Canada, surpassing Celine Dion, Oasis, NSync and others.

Once again, 25 is loaded with the kinds of power ballads that Adele songs are known for. Singles like “Hello” and “Send My Love (To Your New Lover)”pick up right where others like “Someone like you”, “One and only” and “Make you feel my love” left off.

Below, we’ve collected the best quotes from songs on all three albums, to celebrate the lines and lyrics that have become so memorable.

Adele Quotes: The Best Lyrics and Lines from 19, 21 and 25

Album: “25” (2015)

  1. Hello – Adele

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

I want to teach you things you never knew

Right before my eyes I saw my heart it came to life
This ain’t easy, it’s not meant to be
Every story has its scars

  1. Water Under The Bridge – Adele

And if I’m not the one for you
You’ve gotta stop holding me the way you do
Why if I’m not the one for you?
Why have we been through what we have been through

  1. River Lea – Adele

I should probably tell you now before it’s way too late
That I never meant to hurt you or lie straight to your face
Consider this my apology
I know it’s years in advance
But I’d rather say it now in case I never get the chance

Please don’t fall apart
I can’t face your breaking heart
I’m trying to be brave
Stop asking me to stay

Who can’t stand the reflection that they see
I wish I could live a little more
Look up to the sky, not just the floor

No one knows me like you do
And since you’re the only one that matters
Tell me who do I run to?

When you wonder if I’m gonna lose my way home
Just remember, that come whatever
I’ll be yours all alone

Deluxe Edition:

Did you find the note that I wrote?
I hid it in the seam of your coat
It was hard to write, I had a lump in my throat
Do you even know that I can’t let go

  1. Lay Me Down – Adele

The words don’t come out right when you’re right in front of me
Help me baby, won’t you turn off the lights

  1. Why Do You Love Me – Adele

How do you keep me coming back for more
After all we’ve been through
I can’t decide if I should run and hide

When the day is done
And wake up to your face against the morning sun

And it’s been that way too long
Take it as it comes, and be thankful when it’s done
