Adele – Rolling In The Deep lyrics

[Verse 1]
There's a fire starting in my heart,
Reaching a fever pitch and it's bringing me out the dark
.
Finally, I can see you crystal clear,
Go ahead and sell me out and I'll lay your ship bare,
See how I'll leave with every piece of you,
Don't underestimate the things that I will do
.
There's a fire starting in my heart,
Reaching a fever pitch and it's bring me out the dark.

[Pre-Chorus]
The scars of your love remind me of us,
They keep me thinking that we almost had it all.
The scars of your love, they leave me breathless,
I can't help feeling
,

[Chorus]
We could have had it all,
(Your gonna wish you, never had met me)
Rolling in the deep,
(Tears are gonna fall, rolling in the deep)
You had my heart inside your hand,
(You're gonna wish you never had met me)
And you played it to the beat.
(Tears are gonna fall, rolling in the deep)


[Verse 2]
Baby, I have no story to be told,
But I've heard one on you and I'm gonna make your head burn,
Think of me in the depths of your despair,
Making a home down there as mine sure won't be shared
,

[Pre-Chorus]
The scars of your love remind me of us,
(You're gonna wish you never had met me)
They keep me thinking that we almost had it all.
(Tears are gonna fall, rolling in the deep)
The scars of your love, they leave me breathless,
(You're gonna wish you never had met me)
I can't help feeling,
(Tears are gonna fall, rolling in the deep)

[Chorus]
We could have had it all,
(You're gonna wish you never had met me)
Rolling in the deep.
(Tears are gonna fall, rolling in the deep)
You had my heart inside your hand,
(You're gonna wish you never had met me)
And you played it to the beat.
(Tears are gonna fall, rolling in the deep)
Could have had it all,
Rolling in the deep,
You had my heart inside of your hands,
But you played it with a beating.

[Bridge]
Throw your soul through every open door,
Count your blessings to find what you look for.
Turn my sorrow into treasured gold,
You'll pay me back in kind and reap just what you've sown
.

[Interlude]
(You're gonna wish you never had met me)
We could have had it all,
(Tears are gonna fall, rolling in the deep)
We could have had it all.
(You're gonna wish you never had met me),
It all, it all, it all.
(Tears are gonna fall, rolling in the deep)

[Chorus]
We could have had it all,
(You're gonna wish you never had met me)
Rolling in the deep.
(Tears are gonna fall, rolling in the deep
You had my heart inside of your hand,
(You're gonna wish you never had met me)
And you played it to the beat.
(Tears are gonna fall, rolling in the deep)
Could have had it all,
(You're gonna wish you never had met me)
Rolling in the deep.
(Tears are gonna fall, rolling in the deep)
You had my heart inside of your hands,
(You're gonna wish you never had met me

[Outro]
But you played it,
You played it,
You played it,
You played it to the beat.

    Finally turning on the one you loved but you were living a lie. The song represents someone who gave it all but found out that her lover manipulative, exploitive. He had it all and he wouldn't have left. He played her to the beat. Heart in his hands. Not the lover who would break up with her. He won't leave but he won't behave either. A hidden life. It could be addictions, affairs, financial exploitations. It doesn't matter. Just lies. He treats her perfectly but if she ever knew. Then she wakes up and figures it all out. He had not capability of truly loving, ever being remorseful and without self control. He could act and hurt without any regard to anyone's feelings. And when she figures it out, the one who was totally devoted will make it so that he wishes he never met her. He picks the women with the best traits for a relationship. If only she had given her heart and time to someone who was healthy mentally. They could have had it all. Instead she wasted her precious years with him, never being clued in on his other life/lives and she is going to make him pay. I dedicate this song to every woman who loved or loves a sociopath.

    Dear lovefraud,
    I am dating and in love with a sociopath. I swear this song was written to me. It is many things and at the very least, stressful. You definitely interpreted this quite well. I only disagree w a few things. When she says, "We could have had it all." it isn't directed towards someone mentally healthy or anyone else. It is directed at the former lover/sociopath. She is saying we could have had it all bc my heart was in your hand. Meaning, the sociopath is in control that she would do anything for him but he chose something over her. I often think this type of guy has to have an extreme /addictive personality. He is self sabtoging, and thus sabotoged their relationship by choosing his hidden life over her.

    Adele has such an amazing voice (: I love this song so much "3
    This girl is having a rough time with her guy and they either just broke up, or she's breaking up with him, or about to. . (either one works). It's such an amazing song, but It's almost kind of sad to listen to it.
    To anyone who's going through this: It'll all turn out okay. You'll find him/her someday and when you do, you'll know. "3

    This song is beautiful. I know I'm not posting the meaning, but it really is. It's nice to see something like this getting a lot of attention rather than girls half naked singing about being drunk and stuff. Lady Gaga for instance. The only reason she's famous is cause of her weirdness. This girl has talent. She sits in a chair during the whole video, and look at how popular she is. That's pretty amazing nowadays.

    I agree completely with lovefraud. Being in love with a sociopath who hides it from everyone but can't hide it from himself was a terrible yet bittersweet thing for me to experience. Gutwrenching. He hid it well. He played me for a fool and sold me out to everyone he knows. The only problem is that I know him better than anyone, and I know the truth behind the insanity. My clarity has never been better and this song is perfect for my situation.
