"My Same" as written by and Adele Laurie Blue Adkins....
You said I'm stubborn and I never give in
I think you're stubborn 'cept you're always softening
You say I'm selfish, I agree with you on that
I think you're giving out in way too much in fact
I say we've only known each other a year
You say I've known you longer my dear
You like to be so close, I like to be alone
I like to sit on chairs and you prefer the floor
Walking with each other,
Think we'll never match at all, but we do
But we do, but we do, but we do

I thought I knew myself, somehow you know me more
I've never known this, never before
You're the first to make up whenever we argue
I don't know who I'd be if I didn't know you
You're so provocative, I'm so conservative
You're so adventurous, I'm so very cautious, combining
You think we would and we do,
But we do, but we do, but we do

Favoritism ain't my thing but,
In this situation I'll be glad

Favoritism ain't my thing but,
In this situation I'll be glad to make an exception

You said I'm stubborn and I never give in
I think you're stubborn 'cept you're always softening
You say I'm selfish, I agree with you on that
I think you're giving out in way too much in fact
I say we've only known each other one year
You say I've known you longer my dear
You like to be so close, I like to be alone
I like to sit on chairs and you prefer the floor
Walking with each other,
Think we'll never match at all, but we do

    General CommentI went to an Adele concert last night at Bimbos 365 in San Francisco.

    When I called out this song for her to sing, she explained that it was about her ex best friend.

    so, it's actually not about her a a guy, even though I thought that too. It's about a friendship.

    General CommentSo This past Saturday I was able to see Adele in concert. She played this song for us and before she did she explained that she wrote it for her best friend.
    I just thought I'd share that with you guys.
    :)

    General Commentthis is about the realization of someone in your life being the exact opposite of you, but somehow it works.

    General CommentI think that all the sites that say, "we can find your perfect mach" are silly at lest for me because I know my self well enough that I hope find someone that ballances me not copies me. This is my fav Abele song no wonder she got two Grammys. XD

    General CommentThis song is completely about my best friend and I. Always makes me think of the friendship.

    Also, watching the Itunes Festival, in her performance, this song is played at the 27:50 mark and she described how it was about her&her best friend..

    both stubborn. one of us is in every line opposite the other. love this song.

    General CommentYes, this song is for Laura, Adele's friend since childhood, who went to the Brit School with her. They are very much still great friends. Laura was at the show at the Hammersmith Apollo tonight, and Adele dedicated the song to her, explaing that Laura is "crazy" and "I am sane." They are totally different but their friendship works. :)

    General CommentTHIS IS REALLY MY FAVOURITE :D

    it's basically about a couple who are really opposite in what they like and what they do but they are so perfect for eachother their eachothers "same".

    opposites attract and if you seen them together they wouldnt match it up, but they do.

    i love this one so much, its so much like me and my boyfriend.
    people think we are really not a good match.
    but seriously, were perfect together :)

    ADELE
