"It's simple - just letting go. It makes me really upset. It's my most articulate song. It's just to the point, it's not trying to be clever, I think that's why I like it so much, because it's just so honest, no glitter on it." - Adele
"I was trying to remember how it was I felt at the beginning of a relationship because as bad as a break up can be, as bitter and horrible and messy as it can be, that feeling when you first fall for someone is the best feeling on earth, and I am addicted to that feeling." - Adele
"We didn't try to make it open-ended so it could apply to anybody. We tried to make it as personal as possible." - Dan Wilson (songwriter)
