When will I see you again
You left with no goodbye
Not a single a word was said

No final kiss to seal any sins
I had no idea of the state we were in


I know I have a fickle heart
And a bitterness and a wandering eye and a heaviness in my head

[Chorus]
But don't you remember
Don't you remember
The reason you loved me before
Baby, please remember me once more

When was the last time
You thought of me
Or have you completely erased me from your memory
I often think about where I went wrong
The more I do the less I know

I know I have a fickle heart
And a bitterness and a wandering eye and a heaviness in my head

[Chorus]
But don't you remember
Don't you remember?
The reason you loved me before
Baby, please remember me once more

Gave you the space so you could breathe,
I kept my distance so you would be free,
And hope that you find the missing piece,
To bring you back to me
,

[Chorus]
Why don't you remember?
Don't your remember?
The reason you loved me before
Baby, please remember me once more

When will I see you again?

    Things don't always work out how you wanted them to. They happen without reasoning or explanation. Someone can walk into your life, have the greatest effect on you, fall in love with you, have the best time with you and then all of a sudden, without so much as a goodbye, can walk out of your life as quickly as they entered it. We don't understand why our loved ones fall out of love with us, especially not when our heart still beats so strongly for them. I think the bottom line is to treasure those you hold dear, and to make the most of the time you share together, because you never know when it will all end. And ladies, do not settle for anything less than a man who will treat you like a goddess, because you are worth more than you give yourself credit for.

    I loved and took it for granted. Moved on and after 2 kids I still wonder what it would have been? Always in my mind, guilt still haunts me! Even though it was him who said good bye! Don't know why! I suffered so much but there's nothing to do destin has other plans for us. Maybe in that other life we will just stay together! Because I know we both are suffering to date. No such thing as moved on!

    I think the song is about a break-up where the boy has moved on, his life back to normal as if nothing has happened while the girl, on the other hand, is still holding on to the memories. She's looking back to the past and realizes the imperfection of their relationship but asks where she has gone wrong when she has given him everything that she have. She asks the boy if he does remember the first time when he fell in love with her. The feeling she used to give him when he see's her. Because she misses him so much and she is hoping with all her heart that he feels the same way.

    This hits close to home right now because it not only reminds of my best friend who I came close to dating, but of my possible future with another boy now. He is leaving in a few weeks and I will stay here and the thought that this song can apply to me once more terrifies me. But to me it means that while you love someone so much you let them go if it is best for them, even if it hurts you. Yet there is still that hope that maybe it wasn't all for nothing.

    Her album is about a guy who spent time with her, "loved" her, dated her. But he soon broke up with her, found another girl, and got married. And adele was so hurt and scarred coz' she really loved him, but he played with her. I felt it before. Dearest adele, you write and sing such beautiful songs. All the girls and ladies want to thank you becoz' you have songs they wanna dedicate to their ex-boyfriends. Your songs really convey how we females feel and think. And all the boys out there, don't play with us. We have hearts that feel more than you.
