Song Lyric Sunday – When We Were Young by Adele

I know I just shared an Adele song, but this one fit so perfectly and is honestly my absolute favorite song of hers that I just had to share it.  I still cry when I hear this song, and I don’t know what it is about it or why.  It for sure touches a chord.

It doesn’t help that Adele has (in my opinion) the perfect voice and can belt a song out like no one’s business.  I also love the candid moment in this video when she finishes the song and is surprised at what she did.

I know I’ve been bitching a lot about my health and what a hard year it’s been, but this song makes me realize that I struggled a lot when I was younger in different ways, and it was only almost five years ago that I stumbled into the happiest time of my life.  Sure, we’ve had some health issues this year, but I’ve never been so in love and so happy.  It’s the first time in my life that I’ve felt this kind of peace and I am beyond grateful.

This is yet another song dedicated to the man in my life… here’s hoping this year made it so we have many, many more years together.

I hope you all enjoy the song (if you haven’t already heard it).

Everybody loves the things you do
From the way you talk
To the way you move
Everybody here is watching you
‘Cause you feel like home
You’re like a dream come true
But if by chance you’re here alone
Can I have a moment
Before I go?
‘Cause I’ve been by myself all night long
Hoping you’re someone I used to know

You look like a movie
You sound like a song
My God, this reminds me
Of 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

I was so scared to face my fears
Nobody told me that you’d be here
And I swore you moved overseas
That’s what you said, when you left me

You still look like a movie
You still sound like a song
My God, this reminds me
Of 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

When we were young
When we were young
When we were young
When we were young

It’s hard to win me back
Everything just takes me back
To when you were there
To when you were there
And a part of me keeps holding on
Just in case it hasn’t gone
I guess I still care
Do you still care?

It was just like a movie
It was just like a song
My God, this reminds me
Of when we were young

When we were young
When we were young
When we were young
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
Oh, I’m so mad I’m getting old
It makes me reckless
It was just like a movie
It was just like a song
When we were young

  2. Wonderful choice. Adele is the type of bff I would love to have and sit down t have coffee with. She speaks her mind. And agree with the fact that you shouldn’t feel badly about talking about the health issues – it only adds to your authenticity! 🙂
