"All I Ask" as written by Christopher Brown, Bruno Mars, Adele Laurie Adkins and Philip Lawrence....
I will leave my heart at the door
I won't say a word
They've all been said before you know
So why don't we just play pretend
Like we're not scared of what's coming next
Or scared of having nothing left

Look, don't get me wrong
I know there is no tomorrow
All I ask is

If this is my last night with you
Hold me like I'm more than just a friend
Give me a memory I can use
Take me by the hand while we do what lovers do
It matters how this ends
'Cause what if I never love again?

I don't need your honesty
It's already in your eyes
And I'm sure my eyes, they speak for me
No one knows me like you do
And since you're the only one that matters
Tell me who do I run to?

Look, don't get me wrong
I know there is no tomorrow
All I ask is

If this is my last night with you
Hold me like I'm more than just a friend
Give me a memory I can use
Take me by the hand while we do what lovers do
It matters how this ends
'Cause what if I never love again?

Let this be our lesson in love
Let this be the way we remember us
I don't wanna be cruel or vicious
And I ain't asking for forgiveness
All I ask is

If this is my last night with you
Hold me like I'm more than just a friend
Give me a memory I can use
Take me by the hand while we do what lovers do
It matters how this ends
'Cause what if I never love again?

    General Commentthe best song in 25, IMO. this song is about two lovers who are still in love but cannot be with each other anymore. most probably, they're secret lovers. the lyrics is about their last night together.

    Adele's voice is amazing in this song. with the key change and her new voice range, i hope this would be one of her single out of 25. this would be a new classic.

    General CommentThis is is so amazing!! It's so sad! Unfortunately I'm going through this myself.. I don't believe that they're secret lovers. I think that they've had many fights already! And the same thing keeps getting repeated! She can't tell anyone else about their problems (you're the only one that matters, who do I run to?) meaning' they are a couple and that's her best friend (partner in life) but if he's the problem. Who else is she suppose to talk to about it' ?there isn't no more to talk about! This is the end' they're gonna make it a good night! Because what if she doesn't love again!

    My InterpretationTO ME THIS SONG MEANS IF U DON'T GET THAT CHANCE TO SAY GOODBYE KUST GIVE ME ONE NIGHT TO REMEMBER..... AS IT IS WHAT MY FRIEND IS GOIN THRU...... IN LOVE WITH A GAY MAN AS HE IS IN LOVE WITH HER.... BUT THEY CAN NEVER BE AS ONE SINCE HE DOES HAVE SOMEONE AND SHE LOST HER SIGNIFICANT OTHER FIVE YEARS AGO WHEN SHE MET THIS MAN WHOM LIVES IN ENGLAND NOW... IF SHE COULD ASK HIM GIVE HER A MEMORY TO JUST BE WITH HIM THAT IS WHAT I THINK THIS SONG IS ABOUT? TWO LOVERS IN LOVE NOONE WILL ACCEPT BUT EACH OTHER?... SAD SONG..
