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 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 bringing me out the dark
The scars of your love, they leave me breathless
I can't help feeling...
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... (you're gonna wish you)... of your hand (never had met me)
And you played it... (tears are gonna fall)... to the beat (rollin in the deep)
Baby I have no story to be told,
But I've heard one of 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.
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...
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... (you're gonna wish you)... of your hand (never had met me)
And you played it... (tears are gonna fall)... to the beat (rolling in the deep)
Could have had it all
Rolling in the deep.
You had my heart inside of your hand,
But you played it to the beat.
Throw your soul through ever ope door (whoa)
Count your blessings to dins what you look for (whoa -uh)
Turn my sorrow into treasured gold (whoa)
You pay me back in kind and reap just what you sow.
(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. (tears are gonna fall)
It all
It all (rolling in the deep)
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... (you're gonna wish you)... of your hand (never had met me)
And you played it... (tears are gonna fall)... to the beat (rolling in the deep)
We could have had it all (you're wish you never had met me)
Rolling in the deep (tears are gonna fall, rolling in the deep)
You had my heart inside... (you're gonna wish you)... of your hand (never had met me)
But you played it
You played it.
You played it.
You played it to the beat

    We could have had it all
    Rolling in the deep (had everything, been close , us against the world ect)
    (because) you had my heart inside your hand (u had me)
    But you played it to the beat ( i really loved u but u played me, fooled me, used me)
