Adele: Of Love and Heartaches

“I don’t know why I’m scared, I’ve been here before
Every feeling, every word, I’ve imagined it all,
You never know if you never try
To forgive your past and simply be mine

I dare you to let me be your, your one and only
Promise I’m worthy to hold in your arms
So come on and give me the chance
To prove that I’m the one who can
Walk that mile until the end starts.”

Adele’s songs embody the perennial bittersweet emotions that come with love (and the loss of it) with full honesty and rawness. Anyone have had fallen in and out love has related to Adele’s songs one way or another. I turn to Adele whenever I need to warm a cold, restless heart. Or if I just want to cry my heart out.

 

Ursula

You poor unfortunate soul,
Go ahead!
Make your choice!”

 

Ursula the Sea Witch teaches us the value of contentment and accountability with your choices. Ariel wasn’t contented of what she had; in fact, she had everything already! But no, she said “I want more”. So she went on and made the choice to sacrifice her voice, her family, her life under the sea and be with the man she think she loves.┬áThe End.
