It feels so good to have a new album from Adele to enjoy – like a snuggly blanket on a cold evening, like comfort food after a long day at work. I really genuinely am enjoying bother her voice and the relatable sentiments she weaves through her songs. I mean…I think she is sincerely sharing her own journey in her songs, but don’t they tug at your heart strings.
I guess I was looking for an excuse to feature one of her songs that you may possibly have heard a lot of recently – but it is a goodan’. The first single from Adele’s new album “30” has received a very warm reception. “Go Easy On Me” is going to be another long-lasting heartbreak song. I actually really admire Adele for being so generous in digging so deep and capturing so poignantly what so many others have tasted themselves.
I have chosen a recent live performance here, but the original video is at the bottom of this post.
There ain't no gold in this river That I've been washing my hands in forever I know there is hope in these waters But I can't bring myself to swim When I am drowning in this silence Baby, let me in Go easy on me, baby I was still a child Didn't get the chance to Feel the world around me I had no time to choose what I chose to do So go easy on me There ain't no room for things to change When we are both so deeply stuck in our ways You can't deny how hard I have tried I changed who I was to put you both first But now I give up Go easy on me, baby I was still a child Didn't get the chance to Feel the world around me Had no time to choose what I chose to do So go easy on me I had good intentions And the highest hopes But I know right now It probably doesn't even show Go easy on me, baby I was still a child I didn't get the chance to Feel the world around me I had no time to choose what I chose to do So go easy on me Written by: Greg Kurstin and Adele Adkins
