This song has a really nice feel to it. It feels just kind of smooth and melodic and yet with Adele's voice behind it it feels like it has power to it.
So, now let's start with the lyrics. Find them here, as usual. So this song starts with Adele talking about how she's fallen for this guy. She can't stop thinking about him and it feels to her like every day she grows closer to him and her feelings get stronger. At first she doubted in herself or in him or in their love. But then she realized that the only person she wants to be with is this guy. And she's nervous about letting herself fall again and she's nervous that he won't let himself either. But she tells him that he needs to just let go of the past and trust in himself enough to love again. And the next part, the chorus is kind of cute and playful. She's daring him to be with her. Daring him to let her prove her love, even. She wants to prove to him that she is worthy of being his one and only. The next verse is talking about how she thinks he feels. She thinks he feels the same way about her that she does about him. She wants him to tell her she's right though. She wants him to tell her that he loves her and that he wants to be with her. I guess she just wants to know his true feelings rather than just guessing at them. And throughout the rest of the song she repeats the message in the chorus and then goes on to say that she knows it isn't easy to just give up your heart. And she's right. It isn't easy. But it is worth it. To let yourself fall is a difficult thing to do when you've put up defenses around your heart to prevent from getting hurt. But if you care about someone else enough then take down those defenses because you might lose them otherwise.
