''It's a dark bluesy gospel disco tune. It's me making a bit of a statement. It's me saying, 'Get the f--k out of my house instead of me begging him to come back. People will hear it and go, Wow, she ain't mucking around.'' - Adele
"It's my musical equivalent of saying things in the heat of the moment and word-vomiting. It was my reaction to being told my life was going to be lonely and boring and rubbish, and that I was a weak person if I didn't stay in the relationship. I was very insulted, and wrote that as a sort of f--k you." - Adele
''The meaning of the title is an adaptation of a kind of slang, slur phrase in the UK called 'roll deep,' which means to have someone, always have someone that has your back, and you're never on your own, if you're ever in trouble you've always got someone who's going to come and help you fight it or whatever like that. That's how I felt, you know, I thought that's what I was always going to have, and um, it ended up not being the case." - Adele
