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

    Adele has really touched my heart and I've thought about what she was saying and it's made me feel very kind and loving even though I usually am.

    Its about the letting go of the person you love so much... Accept things are not meant to be... Realizing that sometimes love lasts ... But it might get us hurt... In the end,it maybe painful and hurt us so much... For there are reasons that cannot be explained... Feelings get changed without expecting... It just happened to a person... Accidentally!... And we can never control or hold the feelings that are lost... Let go of the person you love the most who's in love with the other... Accept... Cry!!! There are reasons and purpose why you are not together, its not lost but gain to be more mature and love again... Change something for ourselves to be better... As a person... A thought that i learned from a friend... There just one person around... Behind, you seem not to notice... Person you just met ... Maybe that person is for you!
