Adele – Chasing Pavements lyrics

I've made up my mind,
Don't need to think it over,
If I'm wrong I am right,
Don't need to look no further,
This ain't lust,
I know this is love but,

If I tell the world,
I'll never say enough,
Cause it was not said to you,
And that's exactly what I need to do,
If I'm in love with you,

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

I'd build myself up,
And fly around in circles,
Waiting as my heart drops,
And my back begins to tingle
Finally could this be it or

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

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 on chasing pavements?
Should I just keep on chasing pavements?

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

    I understand what this song means: and I just love it. Its really a song of deep thoughts of loving someone. Give up or just keep on loving them. Even if it leads no where. "Thats what tha song means" The vidoe mean: After the accendent should they both give up and die or keep reliveing there love they share right there on that pavement even if its a life time. Leading No Where.

    For me this song has so much attached to it. I'm a guy who had the most wonderful thing in life and because I didn't listen to her I lost her andam living in hell everyday now. She would try to play this after 6 years telling me listen to this listen. And I never listened to the words until she was gone. She was trying so hard to tell me she was hurting because I was not telling her. I might have thought I was letting the world know but like the song said it doesn't matter cause it was not said to her and if I loved her that's who I should have been saying it to. Now I lost her and hear those lyrics everyday. Make sure you truely listen.

    After seeing the video, I think it means that she can give up, or continue in a relationship that puts her in a constant state of being put in jeopardy of her heart being broken and being another 'casualty'. The victims of the accident were on the pavement, representing her in this relationship that leads to continually feeling as if it's killing her on the inside, over and over: chasing the pavement, or finding herself over and over the victim of the relationship 'accident'.

    I just got out of a difficult relationship. It was a one way street with a dead end. I spoke to people close to me about what was going on but since I hadn't voiced it to her, I was not at peace with myself until I spoiled her thoughts and poisoned her mind. Sounds cruel but, the emotional pain will always scar worst, and be remembered forever. She became the pavement I chased, knowing it would lead me no where. We torture ourselves standing by that person whom you've grown to love hoping you might be wrong and they are still the same person you first met. In the end I spread my wings and took flight and haven't set foot on athat pavement no more!

    This song's for you max del amen. I know I blew my chance to be with you. I didn't realize that its you id like to be with until you were gone and things became more complicated for us. At times, I wish things had been different for us and fate had favored our relationship more. I regret that I didn't give "us" a chance. Sad but I know that we both have to stand by the promises we made with our present special someone.
    If by fate we're bound to be together, I know that time will come and I definitely wont let this chance pass again. I will choose to be with you.
    For now, il just keep my hopes up.
    I hope you'll be able to read this max. Thank you.
