I heard, that you're settled down,
That you, found a girl and your married now.
I heard that your dreams came true.
Guess she gave you things, I didn't give to you.

Old friend, why are you so shy?
Ain't like you to hold back or hide from the light.

I hate to turn up out of the blue uninvited,
But I couldn't stay away, I couldn't fight it.
I'd hoped you'd see my face and that you'd be reminded,
That for me, it isn't over.

Nevermind, I'll find someone like you.
I wish nothing but the best, for you too.
Don't forget me, I beg, I remember you said,
"Sometimes it lasts in love but sometimes it hurts instead"
Sometimes it lasts in love but sometimes it hurts instead, yeah
.

You'd know, how the time flies.
Only yesterday, was the time of our lives.
We were born and raised in a summer haze,
Bound by the surprise of our glory days.

I hate to turn up out of the blue uninvited,
But I couldn't stay away, I couldn't fight it.
I'd hoped you'd see my face & that you'd be reminded,
That for me, it isn't over.

Nevermind, I'll find someone like you.
I wish nothing but the best for you too.
Don't forget me, I beg, I remember you say,
"Sometimes it lasts in love but sometimes it hurts instead", yay.

Nothing compares, no worries or cares.
Regret's and mistakes they're memories made.
Who would have known how bittersweet this would taste?

Nevermind, I'll find someone like you.
I wish nothing but the best for you.
Don't forget me, I beg, I remember you said,
"Sometimes it lasts in love but sometimes it hurts instead"

Nevermind, I'll find someone like you.
I wish nothing but the best for you too.
Don't forget me, I beg, I remembered you say,
"Sometimes it lasts in love but sometimes it hurts instead"
Sometimes it lasts in love but sometimes it hurts instead, yay yeh yeah.

    I acc adore this song and i love it soo much.
    I could listen to this song over and over again and not get bored ... i know the lyrics off by heart and i'm happy too see people loving/liking Adele the haters are just jelous i do not see why people should hate her coz of her weight or her voice doesnt matter bout what she looks like or what she weighs she is a loving and bubbly person from what i have heard.
    She has plenty of friends and her voice dont even get me started all i can say is
    I LOVE YOU
    and there is no one out there like adele ;) X

    She's heard he's married now, and she has to come to terms with it being over. She has to see him for herself, to finally convince herself that he ain't coming back to her. And she realises at last that she can't go on hanging onto that hope. That she has to make herself move on, but not in bitterness. She wishes him all the best, knowing that what he's settled for is something different to what they had.

    After a while, after the heart break of a break-up ends, you think back on the good times. After that period where all you can see is the bad things... And you realize maybe you could have found a better way to solve those bad times to get the good times back.

    This tells the story of two child hood lovers who parted probably because of hormonal desires , one returns after leaving the other for pastures greener to find the other sorted and doing well , then being forced to live out the pain of the loss now the shoe is on the other foot
