Adele – I Found A Boy lyrics

I thought I told you, he'd be home soon
Couldn't help myself, you're too good to be true.
I fall short each time,
Every time he ain't here,
You and your charm creep closer, closer in here,
Like a fool for fire I fall, with my pride and all.
Like a bomb before explosion,
Ticking by your call.
You're the wise one, disguised from greed,
But I'm just a child who belongs on her knees.

But I found a boy who I love more,
Than I ever did you before,
So stand beside the river I cried,
And let yourself down!
Look how you want me now that I don't need you.

So, you thought that I'd would crumble to my knees
At the first sight of you, crawling back to me
To whisper "will you leave your man?"
Cause you swear that this time you can stand by me.
I won't stand by you.

Cause I found a boy who I love more,
Than I ever did you before,
So stand beside the river I cried
And let yourself down!
Look how you want me now that I don't need you.

I ain't yours for no taking,
You must be mistaken
I could never look in your eyes, and settle for wrong
And ignore the right

Well I found a boy who loves me more,
Than you ever did before.
So stand beside the river you cry
And let yourself down!
Look how you want me now that I don't need you.

    My name is mr luis bright, I live in mexico, and I'm happily married with a lovely wife and three children. I had a very big problem with my wife few months ago, to the extent that she even packed her things away from me and my kids for almost 5 months, and I tried all my possible best and effort to bring her back, but all to no avail. I discussed it with a very good friend of mine, and he gave me an advi.

    Its hard to get over someone you really loved. One day that dream you had falls apart. Time passes by and you find that person that actually treats you right and teaches you to love again. And then that old love comes back because he has suddenly figured out he lost the best thing that had ever happend to him. Yeah well as much as I loved you. It hurts me to tell you that I can't go back. I loved you with all my heart, the love I had for you was true. I never lied. But I got tired of getting my heart broken. Now I can't wish you anything but the best. I hope you can find someone who will make you happy. Although I was the one person that loved you the most and I know that no one will love you like I did. I found someone better that I love. But most of all loves god too.

    She loved him once but he would make her cry and feel unloved and ignored then she found someone that has that one thing he didn't have that the other one does and now she loves him so much more than she has ever loved anyone. Now that he sees she better off and that he's not then he wants her back, but it's too late because she's in love with some one else who treats her better. And she's glad it happened.

    Loving someone who does not feel the same way, then realising this- they meant something to you but you mean nothing to them. A part, not a part you still love them with all your heart but it won't be good for you. Temptation of being with someone and comfortable sometimes better than being alone. Let the past stay where it is. They left when you wanted them the most. Now you over the bump, you don't need them.

    Its about a girl who loves a guy a lot and he doesn't love her back. So she moves on and finds a guy who she loves more and who loves her more than the other guy ever did. And now the first guy wants her back and promises to treat her right and love her but she says no because he lost his chance and now she in love with another guy and by the way I'm in love with this song.
