Just The Guitar

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: SONGS THAT MENTION A MUSICAL INSTRUMENT

Acoustic, Guitar, Musician, Music, Girl

I feel as if I am cheating a little with my song choice this week. Right in the very first few seconds (yawn and you will miss it) the word “guitar” is there, but the rest of the lyrics have no mention of any musical instruments.

I guess I have chosen this song because Jack and I are going through a little bit of an Adele craze right now. These things happen. I like that her songs are so easy to sing along to…well, I mean, we might miss most of the notes, but I mean the words are easy to remember, and it is easy to feel the emotion in the words she has penned. So many of us relate to Adele’s catalogue of moving musical memorials to love that has been lost. She does it so so well.

This is perhaps one of the most upbeat of her tracks. I absolutely love the dress she is wearing in the video.

Just the guitar. OK, cool.

This was all you, none of it me
You put your hands on, on my body and told me
Mmm
You told me you were ready
For the big one, for the big jump
I'd be your last love everlasting you and me
Mmm
That was what you told me

I'm giving you up
I've forgiven it all
You set me free

Send my love to your new lover
Treat her better
We've gotta let go of all of our ghosts
We both know we ain't kids no more
Send my love to your new lover
Treat her better
We've gotta let go of all of our ghosts
We both know we ain't kids no more

I was too strong, you were trembling
You couldn't handle the hot heat rising (rising)
Mmm
Baby, I'm still rising
I was running, you were walking
You couldn't keep up, you were falling down (down)
Mmm
There's only one way down

I'm giving you up
I've forgiven it all
You set me free, oh

Send my love to your new lover
Treat her better
We gotta let go of all of our ghosts
We both know we ain't kids no more
Send my love to your new lover
Treat her better
We've gotta let go of all of our ghosts
We both know we ain't kids no more

If you're ready, if you're ready
If you're ready, I'm ready
If you're ready, if you're ready
We both know we ain't kids no more
No, we ain't kids no more

I'm giving you up
I've forgiven it all
You set me free

Send my love to your new lover
Treat her better
We've gotta let go of all of our ghosts
We both know we ain't kids no more
Send my love to your new lover
Treat her better
We've gotta let go of all of our ghosts
We both know we ain't kids no more

If you're ready, if you're ready (send my love to your new lover)
If you're ready, I'm ready (treat her better)
We've gotta let go of all of our ghosts
We both know we ain't kids no more
If you're ready, if you're ready (send my love to your new lover)
If you're ready, I am ready (treat her better)
We've gotta let go of all of our ghosts
We both know we ain't kids no more
