When did it go wrong, I will never know
I have loved you all my life
How did it slow down, I go round and round
Thinking about it all the time

I gave you heaven on a platter baby
I gave you everything you never gave me
I never lied and I never faked it
Only wanted for you to save me
This love, it ain't all greed
There's too much that I haven't said

Did you find the note that I wrote?
I hid it in the seam of your coat
It was hard to write with a lump in my throat
Do you even know I can't let go

Why were you so cold, let the truth me told
Tell me was it all for the thrill?
What was I thinking, I gave you everything
But you still went for the kill

I gave you heaven on a platter baby
I gave you everything you never gave me
I never lied and I never faked it
Only wanted for you to save me

Did you find the note that I wrote?
I hid it in the seam of your coat
It was hard to write with a lump in my throat
Do you even know I can't let go

Oooh sometimes I feel like I'm in the dark
Oooh I thought I died in your arms

Did you find the note that I wrote?
I hid it in the seam of your coat
It was hard to write, I had a lump in my throat
Do you even know that I can't let go

Hope you know, I won't let go

    My OpinionWOW! This song, so emotional so raw, so powerful! The piano so haunting. The lyrics speak for themselves. This has quickly become my favorite Adele song. Its supposedly only included in the target exclusive cd but it should have been available for the whole to hear.

    General Commentthis song is so freakin' sad. i just think it's kinda odd she put this song in 25. this song belongs in 21. as we all know, 21 is a break up album and 25 is a make up album. just my thought. i love you, Adele!

    it's a great song, nevertheless. very raw and very honest.

    General CommentThis song is haunting and very deep. It speaks to that love that is so intense it can cut or give you life. Usually when love is that intense itdoes both. Favorite song of Adele's not for the weak hearted if you have had a deep loss of love
