Send My Love (To Your New Lover) - Adele



The Experience: I'm giving you up. I've forgiven it all... If you're ready, I am ready. We've gotta let go of all of our ghosts... Is forgive and forget truly possible...



Music video: Adele plays up to the contrast between her black surroundings - the betrayal in the song - and her peaceful carefree act.

The Meaning of Send My Love: Adele explores what life would look like if we could simply forgive and forget. There's a freedom there, a simple happiness. but Send My Love also leaves a lingering doubt. The betrayal was deep - you put your hands on, on my body and told me... I'd be your last love everlasting. That promise was what moved her to take the big jump and surrender herself to him. And it was a lie. If you can forgive that - amazing. But if you think that forgiveness means brushing it off as if it were nothing, those ghosts will follow you your whole life. If you can forget, there wasn't much to forgive in the first place.

Ask yourself: Is true forgiveness possible - or is it all only an act of make believe?

LYRICS:

[Just the guitar, okay cool]

This was all you, none of it me
You put your hands on, on my body and told me
Mmm
You told me you were ready
For the big one, for the big jump
I'd be your last love everlasting you and me
Mmm
That was what you told me

I'm giving you up
I've forgiven it all
You set me free-ee

Send my love to your new lover
Treat her better
We've gotta let go of all of our ghosts
We both know we ain't kids no more
Send my love to your new lover
Treat her better
We gotta let go of all of our ghosts
We both know we ain't kids no more

I was too strong you were trembling
You couldn't handle the hot heat rising (rising)
Mmm
Baby I'm still rising
I was running, you were walking
You couldn't keep up, you were falling down (down)
Mmm
Mmm there's only one way down

I'm giving you up
I've forgiven it all
You set me free-ee, oh

Send my love to your new lover
Treat her better
We gotta let go of all of our ghosts
We both know we ain't kids no more
Send my love to your new lover
Treat her better
We've gotta let go of all of our ghosts
We both know we ain't kids no more

If you're ready, if you're ready
If you're ready, I am ready
If you're ready, if you're ready
We both know we ain't kids no more
No, we ain't kids no more

I'm giving you up
I've forgiven it all
You set me free

Send my love to your new lover
Treat her better
We've gotta let go of all of our ghosts
We both know we ain't kids no more
Send my love to your new lover
Treat her better
We gotta let go of all of our ghosts
We both know we ain't kids no more

If you're ready, if you're ready (Send my love to your new lover)
If you're ready, I am ready (Treat her better)
We've gotta let go of all of our ghosts
We both know we ain't kids no more
If you're ready, if you're ready (Send my love to your new lover)
If you're ready, I am ready (Treat her better)
We've gotta let go of all of our ghosts
We both know we ain't kids no more
