There Ain’t No Room For Things To Change

Jim Adams, aka Newepicauthor, the creator of A Unique Title For Me, is hosting SONG-LYRIC-SUNDAY and this week he has chosen the theme: HOUSE/ROOM/KITCHEN/SHOWER/ATTIC

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

    1. I think the Pandemic delayed the release of this album Jim. Most artists know that at the same time as releasing an album you have to put a lot of work into appearances on various media outlets. The Pandemic would have probably delayed so much of what had been planned for the release of the album.
