Lyric of the day

“Melt My Heart To Stone”

By Adele
Right under my feet there’s air made of bricks
Pulls me down turns me weak for you
I find myself repeating like a broken tune
And I’m forever excusing your intentions
And I give in to my pretendings
Which forgive you each time
Without me knowing
They melt my heart to stone

And I hear your words that I made up
You say my name like there could be an us
I best tidy up my head I’m the only one in love
I’m the only one in love

Each and every time I turn around to leave
I feel my heart begin to burst and bleed
So desperately I try to link it with my head
But instead I fall back to my knees
As you tear your way right through me
I forgive you once again
Without me knowing
You’ve burnt my heart to stone

And I hear your words that I made up
You say my name like there could be an us
I best tidy up my head I’m the only one in love
I’m the only one in love

Why do you steal my hand
Whenever I’m standing my own ground
You build me up, then leave me dead

Well I hear your words you made up
I say your name like there should be an us
I best tidy up my head I’m the only one in love
I’m the only one in love.

This song to me is about feeling led on by someone you really care about. To an extent she can’t blame him because she feels a bit deluded (she’s ‘making up’ words that he said, twisting them to give herself hope that she has a chance), but then also he’s giving her false hope, but she forgives him every time. I think a lot of us have a person like that. You wish you could just pull yourself together and use your head and realise it’s not going to happen and you’re being led on, but all your strength and independence just goes when you think there’s just a glimmer of hope.

It’s also about being a fool for love and how no matter how hard she pushes away she can’t stop giving to this person she cares for although he doesn’t feel the same way. she relates to anyone who is in love with someone who occasionally loves them back. in the last verse adele says she giving up giving in to this lover but then again she know in reality that she cant’t. she wants to believe that it will work but also wants to be done trying because she knows it won’t.

This song is for anyone who has fell for someone who doesnt love them back.So the person who is in love starts making up fantasy’s in their head but then realise “Im the only one in love, the only one in love” The fantasy’s start to take over and it gets to a point where she cant see whats reality anymore. and forever thinking that this person is actually in love with her. When in reality they’re not and thats what she realises at the end of the song.

“I best tidy up my head I’m the only one in love
I’m the only one in love”

– This song is the self realization that this person doesnt feel the same way you feel, and describes the trials you go through within yourself.

‘Well I hear your words you made up
So I say your name like there could be an us
I best tidy up my head I’m the only one in love

– I love the last verse where the perspective kind of shifts. now it turns from someone misinterpreting a persons intentions, to someone who is learning to recognize empty words for what they are. It’s bittersweet.

“Why do you steal my hand
Whenever I’m standing my own ground
You build me up, then leave me dead”

– She finally stands up and defends herself but like a repeating record he gets her to trust him “steal my hand”. But he strings her along thinking things will change and he hurts her again leaving her “dead”.

“And I give in to my pretendings
Which forgive you each time
Without me knowing
They melt my heart to stone”

Her pretendings here are “words that I made up,” the things she wants to hear, but he may not have meant in that way.
