Full of Emotions.

So have you heard Adele’s new single, Hello? If not, here listen to it now…

So the minute it started playing I fell in love. The second time however, when I really started listening to the lyrics… I started to cry. This song, for me at least, doesn’t tell the story of an ex. For me, it’s like a conversation with myself from either the past or the person I’d thought I’d be but still am not. (again this is just how I’m interpreting it… so don’t judge!)

Hello – Adele

Hello? It’s me.
I was wondering if after all these years you’d like to meet.
To go over, everything.
They say that times supposed to heal you but I ain’t done much healing.
Hello? Can you hear me?
I’m in California dreaming about who we used to be
When we were younger, and free.
I’ve forgotten how it felt before the world fell at our feet.
There’s such a difference between us,
And a million miles.
Hello from the other side.
I must have called a thousand times
To tell you I’m sorry for everything that I’ve done
But when I called, you never seem to be home.
Hello from the outside.
At least I can say that I tried
To tell you I’m sorry for breaking your heart
But it don’t matter, it clearly doesn’t tear you apart anymore.
Hello? How are you?
It’s so typical of me to talk about myself, I’m sorry.
I hope, that you’re well.
Did you ever make it out of that town where nothing ever happened.
It’s no secret that the both of us
Are running out of time.
So, hello from the other side.
I must have called a thousand times
To tell you I’m sorry for everything that I’ve done.
But when I called, you never seem to be home.
Hello from the outside.
At least I can say that I tried
To tell you I’m sorry for breaking your heart.
But it don’t matter, it clearly doesn’t tear you apart anymore.

When I was a kid and teen, I pictured my life would be totally different than what it is right now. I thought I’d be married and have kids by now. Thought I would be making more money than the pennies I make now. I pictured myself fit and healthy and definitely not the size I am today. Every once in awhile, I see that person I wanted to be in my head. I wonder where she ever went. Why she got moved to the back burner. I remember how when we’re kids, the world is such a big and exciting place. We didn’t have the worries of adults, only the dreams of our wild imaginations. Sadly though, when we grow up, a lot of us lose sight of the things we used to dream about. Life gets in the way, and we start to lose faith in ourselves. I know this because I’ve lost faith in myself so many times. Then, when you think you find just a small part of your once huge dream, it’s like you can’t get through to it or grasp it, and it slowly fades away again.

This song perfectly describes the conversation I’d have with her.

So, thanks Adele for this song. It’s made me see those dreams I used to have. It makes me want to grab on tight and not let go… I want it to matter, because it does matter.

      Sorry, I’m just responding now! I have not been a good blogger what so ever!

      I totally agree. There are days where I am happy as a clam, and other days it’s like I feel my life is shattering around me.
