Adele – I Drink Wine (Official Lyric Video)

The song will repeat


How can one become so bounded by choices that somebody else makes?
How come we’ve both become a version of a person we don’t even like?
We’re in love with the world but the world just wants to bring us down
By putting ideas in our heads that corrupt our hearts somehow
When I was a child every single thing could blow my mind
Soaking it all up for fun but now I only soak up wine
They say to play hard you work hard find balance in the sacrifice
Yet I don’t know anybody who’s truly satisfied

You better believe I’m trying to keep climbing
But the higher we climb feels like we’re both none the wiser

So I hope I learn to get over myself
Stop trying to be somebody else
So we can love each other for free
Everybody wants something, you just want me

Why am I obsessing about the things I can’t control?
Why am I seeking approval from people I don’t even know?
In these crazy times I hope to find something I can cling on to
Cause I need some substance in my life
Something real, something that feels true

You better believe for you I’ve cried high tides
Cause I want you so bad but you can’t fight fire with fire

Listen I know how low I can go
I give as good as I get
You get the brunt of it all cause you’re all I’ve got left
Oh I hope in time we both will find peace of mind
Sometimes the road less travelled is a road best left behind

I literally drink wine , while listening to this now

Adele inspired me to go all in with my music because she was once just like me, an artist without many listeners. And now she’s on top. I believe it will happen for me one day, Im not stopping when it does! 🚀

I used to be a fan, but after hearing this masterpiece, I’m a whole air conditioner

If this woman who has the world in the palm of her hands can feel like this, then it’s absolutely okay for me to feel the same way. Thank you Adele for letting me know that I can be flawed and still grow. This came along EXACTLY when I needed it.

“i hope i learn to get over myself, stop trying to be somebody else” is just perfectly written for those in mid 20s and above, who are now in their mid career, meeting people who are more successful, more wealthy, happier or like that and we just wish to be like them. Well, we all have our own paths aint it, just live the moment, let us rest and figure it out.
I’m laying on my bed at 2:12am singing my heart out to this song and crying. Thank you Adele

This song describes reality, how we were brainwashed about the journey of life , the imagination and expectations we had… we sometimes lose ourselves trying to make other people fit in our lives, how we compare ourselves with others. This is the battle I’m in currently.
