A Few Words About Adele…
Today, I would like to write about Adele – a great musician with an incredible voice. Her full name is: Adele Laurie Blue Adkins but everyone knows her as Adele.
She was born on 5 May 1988. She was the first recipient of the Brit Awards Critics’ Choice and she was named the number-one act of 2008 in an annual BBC poll of music critics, Sound of 2008.
I didn’t like her from the start, until I heard the songs: “Rolling in the deep”, “Someone like you” and “Set fire to the rain”. While I was watching on Youtube her live show on the stage, when Adele was singing “Someone like you” – I totally fell in love with her, cause I thought: “Oh my god, her voice is so incredible”.
Really, she’s a real artist and a great person. I remember when a woman (don’t remember her name) said that Adele was fat. I really liked the way she answered. She said: “I don’t make music for eyes. I make music for ears”. That was a smart and not offensive answer.
She gave her heart and soul to her songs, and I think that this is the most important thing that makes her so special.

Someone Like You
I heard that you’re settled down.
That you found a girl and you’re married now.
I heard that your dreams came true.
Guess she gave you things I didn’t give to you.
Old friend, why are you so shy?
It ain’t like you to hold back or hide from the lie.
I hate to turn up out of the blue uninvited,
But I couldn’t stay away, I couldn’t fight it.
I had hoped you’d see my face and that you’d be reminded,
That for me, it isn’t over.
Nevermind, I’ll find someone like you.
I wish nothing but the best for you two.
Don’t forget me, I beg, I remember you said:
“Sometimes it lasts in love but sometimes it hurts instead”
Sometimes it lasts in love but sometimes it hurts instead, yeah.
