The Hollies – He Ain’t Heavy, He’s My Brother

The road is long, with many a-winding turn
That leads us to who knows where, who knows when
But I’m strong, strong enough to carry him
He ain’t heavy, he’s my brother

So on we go, his welfare is of my concern
No burden is he to bear, we’ll get there
For I know, he would not encumber me
He ain’t heavy, he’s my brother

If I’m laden at all, I’m laden with sadness
That everyone’s heart isn’t filled with the gladness
Of love for one another

It’s a long long road, from which there is no return
While we’re on the way to there, why not share?
And the load doesn’t weigh me down at all
He ain’t heavy, he’s my brother

He’s my brother
He ain’t heavy, he’s my brother…

Adele – Hiding My Heart

This is how the story went, I met someone by accident
Who blew me away, blew me away
And it was in the darkest of my days,
when you took my sorrow and you took my pain
And buried them away, you buried them away

I wish I could lay down beside you when the day is done
And wake up to your face against the morning sun
But like everything I’ve ever known, you’ll disappear one day
So I’ll spend my whole life hiding my heart away

Dropped you off at the train station, put a kiss on top of your head
And watched you wave, and watched you wave
Then I went on home to my skyscrapers, neon lights and waiting papers
That I call home, I call that home

I wish I could lay down beside you when the day is done
And wake up to your face against the morning sun
But like everything I’ve ever known, you’ll disappear one day
So I’ll spend my whole life hiding my heart away

Woke up feeling heavy-hearted, I’m going back to where I started
The morning rain, the morning rain
And though I wish that you were here,
on that same old road that brought me here
It’s calling me home, it’s calling me home

I wish I could lay down beside you when the day is done
And wake up to your face against the morning sun
But like everything I’ve ever known, you’ll disappear one day
So I’ll spend my whole life hiding my heart away
I can’t spend my whole life hiding my heart away

Adele – Someone Like You

I heard, that you’re settled down
That you, found a girl
And you’re, 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 had hoped you’d see my face and that you’d be reminded
That for me it isn’t over

Never mind, I’ll find someone like you
I wish nothing but the best for you too
Don’t forget me, I begged, I remember you said
Sometimes it lasts in love, but sometimes it hurts instead
Sometimes it lasts in love, but sometimes it hurts instead

You 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 had hoped you’d see my face and that you’d be reminded
That for me it isn’t over

Never mind, I’ll find someone like you
I wish nothing but the best for you too
Don’t forget me, I begged, I remember you said
Sometimes it lasts in love, but sometimes it hurts instead

Nothing compares, no worries or cares
Regrets and mistakes, they are memories made
Who would have known how bittersweet this would taste..?

Never mind, I’ll find someone like you
I wish nothing but the best for you too
Don’t forget me, I begged, I remember you said
Sometimes it lasts in love, but sometimes it hurts instead

Never mind, I’ll find someone like you
I wish nothing but the best for you too
Don’t forget me, I begged, I remember you said
Sometimes it lasts in love, but sometimes it hurts instead
Sometimes it lasts in love, but sometimes it hurts instead..

Adele – One and Only

You’ve been on my mind, I grow fonder every day
Lose myself in time, just thinking of your face
God only knows, why it’s taking me so long to let my doubts go
You’re the only one that I want

I don’t know why I’m scared, I’ve been here before
Every feeling every word, I’ve imagined it all
You never know if you never try
To forgive your past and simply be mine

I dare you to let me be your, your one and only
Promise I’m worthy to hold in your arms
So come on and give me the chance,
to prove that I’m the one who can
Walk that mile until the end starts

If I’ve been on your mind, you hang on every word I say
Lose yourself in time, at the mention of my name
Will I ever know how it feels to hold you close,
and have you tell me whichever road I choose you’ll go?

I don’t know why I’m scared, cause I’ve been here before
Every feeling every word, I’ve imagined it all
You never know if you never try
To forgive your past and simply be mine

I dare you to let me be your, your one and only
Promise I’m worthy to hold in your arms
So come on and give me the chance,
to prove that I’m the one who can
Walk that mile until the end starts

I know it ain’t easy, giving up your heart
I know it ain’t easy, giving up your heart
I know it ain’t easy, giving up your heart
I know it ain’t easy, giving up your heart
I know it ain’t easy, giving up your heart
I know it ain’t easy, giving up your heart

So I dare you to let me be your, your one and only
I promise I’m worthy to hold in your arms
So come on and give me the chance,
to prove that I’m the one who can
Walk that mile until the end starts
Come on and give me the chance
to prove that I’m the one who can
Walk that mile until the end starts

Adele – Take It All

Didn’t I give it all? Tried my best?
Gave you everything I had, everything and no less
Didn’t I do it right? Did I let you down?
Maybe you got too used to, by having me around
Still how can you walk away from all my tears
It’s gonna be an empty road, without me right here

But go on and take it, take it all with you
Don’t look back at this crumbling fool
Just take it all, with my love
Take it all, with my love

Maybe I should leave, to help you see
Nothing is better than this, and this is everything we need
So is it over? Is this really?
You’ve given up so easily?
I thought you loved me more than this

But go on, go on and take it, take it all with you
Don’t look back at this crumbling fool
Just take it all, with my love
Take it all, with my love

I will change if I must
Slow it down and bring it home, I will adjust
Oh if only, if only you knew
Everything I do is for you

But go on, go on and take it, take it all with you
Don’t look back at this crumbling fool
Just take it, take it all with you
Don’t look back at this crumbling fool
Just take it all, with my love
Take it all, with my love
Take it all, with my love..

Adele – He Won’t Go

Some say, I’ll be better without you
But they don’t know you like I do,
or at least the sides I thought I knew
I can’t bear this time, it drags on as I lose my mind
Reminded by the things I find,
like notes and clothes you left behind
Wake me up, wake me up when all is done
I won’t rise until this battle’s won, my dignity’s become undone

But I won’t go, I can’t do it on my own
If this ain’t love, then what is? I’m willing to take the risk
I won’t go, I can’t do it on my own
If this ain’t love, then what is? I’m willing to take the risk

So petrified, I’m so scared to step into this ride
What if I lose my heart and fail declined?
I won’t forgive me if i give up trying
I heard his voice today, I didn’t know a single word he said
Not one resemblance to the man I met
Just a vacant broken boy instead

But I won’t go, I can’t do it on my own
If this ain’t love, then what is? I’m willing to take the risk
I won’t go, I can’t do it on my own
If this ain’t love, then what is? I’m willing to take the risk

There will be times, we’ll try and give it up
Bursting at the seams, no doubt
We’ll almost fall apart then burn the pieces
To watch them turn to dust, but nothing will ever taint us

I won’t go, I can’t do it on my own
If this ain’t love, then what is? I’m willing to take the risk
I won’t go, I can’t do it on my own
If this ain’t love, then what is? I’m willing to take the risk

Will he, will he still remember me?
Will he still love me even when he’s free?
Or will he go back to the place where he
would choose the poison over me?
When we spoke yesterday, you said to hold my breath, to sit and wait
“I’ll be home so soon, I won’t be late”

He won’t go, he can’t do it on his own
If this ain’t love, then what is? He’s willing to take the risk
So I won’t go, he can’t do it on his own
If this ain’t love, then what is? We’re willing to take the risk

Cause he won’t go, he can’t do it on his own
If this ain’t love, then what is? We’re willing to take the risk
I won’t go, he can’t do it on my own
If this ain’t love, then what is? I’m willing to take the risk

Adele – Set Fire to the Rain

I let it fall, my heart, and as it fell you rose to claim it
It was dark, and I was over, until you kissed my lips and you saved me
My hands, they’re strong, but my knees were far too weak
To stand in your arms, without falling to your feet

But there’s a side to you, that I never knew, never knew,
All the things you’d say, they were never true, never true,
And the games you play, you would always win, always win.

But I set fire to the rain
Watched it pour as I touched your face
Well, it burned while I cried
Cause I heard it screaming out your name, your name!

When I lay with you, I could stay there, close my eyes
Feel you here forever, you and me together nothing gets better

Cause there’s a side to you, that I never knew, never knew,
All the things you’d say, they were never true, never true,
And the games you play, you would always win, always win.

But I set fire to the rain
Watched it pour as I touched your face
Well, it burned while I cried
Cause I heard it screaming out your name, your name!

I set fire to the rain, and I threw us into the flames
Well, it felt something died
Cause I knew that that was the last time, the last time!

Sometimes I wake up by the door
That heart you caught must be waiting for you
Even now when we’re already over
I can’t help myself from looking for you

I set fire to the rain
Watched it pour as I touched your face
Well, it burned while I cried
Cause I heard it screaming out your name, your name!

I set fire to the rain, and I threw us into the flames
Well, it felt something died
Cause I knew that that was the last time, the last time, oh, oh!
Let it burn, let it burn, let it burn

Adele – Don’t You Remember

When will I see you again?
You left with no goodbye, not a single word was said
No final kiss to seal any seams
I had no idea of the state we were in
I know I have a fickle heart, and a bitterness
And a wandering eye, and a heaviness in my head

But don’t you remember? Don’t you remember?
The reason you loved me before
Baby, please remember me once more

When was the last time you thought of me?
Or have you completely erased me from your memory?
I often think about where I went wrong
The more I do, the less I know
But I know I have a fickle heart, and a bitterness
And a wandering eye, and a heaviness in my head

But don’t you remember? Don’t you remember?
The reason you loved me before
Baby, please remember me once more

Gave you the space so you could breathe,
I kept my distance so you would be free
And hope that you find the missing piece,
To bring you back to me

Why don’t you remember? Don’t you remember?
The reason you loved me before
Baby, please remember me once more

When will I see you again..?

Adele – Turning Tables

close enough to start a war
all that I have is on the floor
God only knows what we’re fighting for
all that I say, you always say more
I can’t keep up with your turning tables
under your thumb, I can’t breathe

so I won’t let you close enough to hurt me
no, I won’t ask you, you to just desert me
I can’t give you what you think you gave me
it’s time to say goodbye to turning tables
to turning tables

under haunted skies I see
where love is lost, your ghost is found
I’ve braved a hundred storms to leave you
as hard as you try, no, I will never be knocked down
I can’t keep up with your turning tables
under your thumb, I can’t breathe

so I won’t let you close enough to hurt me
no, I won’t ask you, you to just desert me
I can’t give you what you think you gave me
it’s time to say goodbye to turning tables
turning tables

next time I’ll be braver, I’ll be my own savior
when the thumb that cost me
next time I’ll be braver, I’ll be my own savior
standing on my own two feet

I won’t let you close enough to hurt me
no, I won’t ask you, you to just desert me
I can’t give you what you think you gave me
it’s time to say goodbye to turning tables
turning tables, turning tables

Swimming with Dolphins – Silhouettes

I know you won’t admit this, I am just a silhouette to you
you found comfort with my distance,
but you never let me stray out of your view
who really needs the past, with the allure of something new
so we split apart at last, went back to places that I knew, before you

and you never have to see, the light that wraps itself around me
and I’ll never have to know the faces and, the places you go
that you go, that you go
that you go, that you go

when I count by the resistance, I bend in shapes in ways that I never knew
so I’ll try to post from my existence
yeah I’ll stop or start my heart if you ask me to
I’ll stop my heart and then I’ll wait for you

I was sure I never would be sure we were in love
(although it’s dark and black)
I am sure I never will be sure of love to come
(there is one thing left to hold on to)
after you

and you never have to see, the light that wraps itself around me
and I never have to know the faces there, the places you go
that you go, that you go
that you go, that you go
