Adele - Hello

[Verse 1]
Hello, it's me
I was wondering if after all these years
You'd like to meet, to go over
Everything
They say that time's supposed to heal ya
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

[Pre-Chorus 1]
There's such a difference between us
And a million miles

[Chorus]
Hello from the other side
I must've called a thousand times to tell you
I'm sorry, for everything that I've done
But when I call you never seem to be home

Hello from the outside
At least I can say that I've tried to tell you
I'm sorry, for breaking your heart
But it don't matter, it clearly doesn't tear you apart anymore

[Verse 2]
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?

[Pre-Chorus 2]
It's no secret
That the both of us are running out of time

[Chorus]
Hello from the other side
I must've called a thousand times to tell you
I'm sorry, for everything that I've done
But when I call you never seem to be home

Hello from the outside
At least I can say that I've tried to tell you
I'm sorry, for breaking your heart
But it don't matter, it clearly doesn't tear you apart anymore

[Bridge]
Ooooohh, anymore
Ooooohh, anymore
Ooooohh, anymore
Anymore

[Chorus]
Hello from the other side
I must've called a thousand times to tell you
I'm sorry, for everything that I've done
But when I call you never seem to be home

Hello from the outside
At least I can say that I've 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" was the first single released from Adele's long awaited third studio album "25". Adele examines the past and tries to right her wrongs on “Hello.” On the surface, the song appears to be about a break-up from long ago, but the song can also be interpreted as Adele’s attempt at reconciliation with her former self. In a tweet, Adele called 21 a “break-up record” and 25 a “make-up record". The track was released on Friday, October 23, 2015 and soon went on to break a number of records. It went straight to No. 1 in Billboard's Hot 100 (November 14, 2015) - which combines digital sales, radio airplay and streaming data - and became the first song to sell over 1 million downloads in 1 week. The video broke VEVO's "most viewed video in 24 hours", getting over 27.7 million views: the record was previously held by Taylor Swift with "Bad Blood" (20.1 million video views). "Hello" is Adele’s fourth No. 1 song, following “Rolling In the Deep,” “Someone Like You” and “Set Fire to the Rain.” Grammy Awards (2017) - At the 59th Grammy Awards on Sun, February 12, 2017, "Hello" won a Grammy for "Song Of The Year" and "Best Pop Solo Performance". In an interview with i-D, Adele contextualizes “Hello”: The song is about hurting someone’s feelings but it’s also about trying to stay in touch with myself, which sometimes can be a little bit hard to do,“ she explains. "It’s about a yearning for the other side of me. When I’m away, I really, really miss my life at home. The way that I feel when I’m not in England, is…” (she pauses) “desperation. I can’t breathe anywhere else.” Why? “I dunno. I’m so attached to my whole life here. I get worked up that I’m missing out on things. So ‘Hello’ is about wanting to be at home and wanting to reach out to everyone I’ve ever hurt – including myself – and apologize for it.
