Song Lyric Sunday | “All I Ask” – Adele

Song Lyric Sunday was created by Helen Vahdati from This Thing Called Life One Word at a Time. For complete rules or to join in the fun, click here.

The theme for Song Lyric Sunday this week is “truth”.  

Like Bonnie Raitt’s I Can’t Make You Love Me, my post from a few weeks ago, Adele knows the truth but wants the lie… at least for one more night with a man who doesn’t share her feelings in All I Ask. The video is from a live performance on Ellen last February.

“All I Ask”

By Adele

Writer(s): Bruno Mars, Philip Lawrence, Adele Laurie Adkins, Christopher Brown

I will leave my heart at the door
I won’t say a word
They’ve all been said before, you know
So why don’t we just play pretend
Like we’re not scared of what is coming next
Or scared of having nothing left

Look, don’t get me wrong
I know there is no tomorrow
All I ask is

If this is my last night with you
Hold me like I’m more than just a friend
Give me a memory I can use
Take me by the hand while we do what lovers do
It matters how this ends
‘Cause what if I never love again?

I don’t need your honesty
It’s already in your eyes
And I’m sure my eyes, they speak for me
No one knows me like you do
And since you’re the only one that matters
Tell me who do I run to?

Look, don’t get me wrong
I know there is no tomorrow
All I ask is

If this is my last night with you
Hold me like I’m more than just a friend
Give me a memory I can use
Take me by the hand while we do what lovers do
It matters how this ends
‘Cause what if I never love again?

Let this be our lesson in love
Let this be the way we remember us
I don’t wanna be cruel or vicious
And I ain’t asking for forgiveness
All I ask is

If this is my last night with you
Hold me like I’m more than just a friend
Give me a memory I can use
Take me by the hand while we do what lovers do
It matters how this ends
‘Cause what if I never love again?

    • LOL! Sowwy! This is one of my favs because it IS so emotional!

      I compared it to Bonnie Raitt’s song, but the two are only alike in subject matter. Bonnie’s is sad but resolute, “It is what it is.” Adele’s reaches in and rips your heart right out…”I have to have this because I may not ever, ever, ever, ever have it again!” YIKES! 😱😝😁
