Chasing Pavements – Wednesday’s Lyrics

For my this week’s Wednesday’s lyrics, I chose Adele’s Chasing Pavements for The Broken Spine‘s weekly lyrics installment.

This is actually my all-time favorite Adele song.  I resonated with the lyrics deeply because I was infatuated with someone many years ago but the feeling wasn’t mutual.  The chorus reflected how I felt at the time because the relationship simply wasn’t going anywhere.  The melody was melancholy, the lyrics were tragic and the video was devastating.  Overall, it was definitely not a happy song. So enjoy it, ha!

I’ve made up my mind,
Don’t need to think it over
If I’m wrong, I am right
Don’t need to look no further,
This ain’t lust
I know this is love

But if I tell the world
I’ll never say enough
’cause it was not said to you
And that’s exactly what I need to do
If I end up with you

[Chorus:]
Should I give up?
Or should I just keep chasin’ pavements
Even if it leads nowhere?
Or would it be a waste
Even if I knew my place?
Should I leave it there?
Should I give up?
Or should I just keep chasin’ pavements
Even if it leads nowhere?

I build myself up
And fly around in circles
Waitin’ as my heart drops
And my back begins to tingle
Finally, could this be it

[Chorus:]
Or should I give up?
Or should I just keep chasin’ pavements
Even if it leads nowhere?
Or would it be a waste
Even if I knew my place?
Should I leave it there?

Should I give up?
Or should I just keep chasin’ pavements
Even if it leads nowhere?

Should I give up?
Or should I just keep on chasin’ pavements
Even if it leads nowhere?
Or would it be a waste
Even if I knew my place?
Should I leave it there?

Should I give up?
Or should I just keep on chasin’ pavements?
Should I just keep on chasin’ pavements?
Ohh oh

[Chorus:]
should I give up?
Or should I just keep chasin’ pavements
Even if it leads nowhere?
Or would it be a waste
Even if I knew my place?
Should I leave it there?

should I give up?
Or should I just keep chasin’ pavements
Even if it leads nowhere
