Million Years Ago – Adele


I only wanted to have fun

Learning to fly learning to run

I let my heart decide the way
When I was young
Deep down I must have always known

That this would be inevitable

To earn my stripes I’d have to pay

And bare my soul

I know I’m not the only one

Who regrets the things they’ve done
Sometimes I just feel it’s only me
Who can’t stand the reflection that they see

I wish I could live a little more
Look up to the sky not just the floor

I feel like my life is flashing by

And all I can do is watch and cry
I miss the air I miss my friends

I miss my mother I miss it when

Life was a party to be thrown
But that was a million years ago

When I walk around all of the streets
Where I grew up and found my feet
They can’t look me in the eye

It’s like they’re scared of me
I try to think of things to say

Like a joke or a memory
But they don’t recognise me now
In the light of day

I know I’m not the only one
Who regrets the things they’ve done
Sometimes I just feel it’s only me
Who never became who they thought they’d be
I wish I could live a little more
Look up to the sky not just the floor
I feel like my life is flashing by
And all I can do is watch and cry
I miss the air I miss my friends
I miss my mother I miss it when
Life was a party to be thrown
But that was a million years ago
A million years ago
