"Sweetest Devotion" "Lay Me Down"

"Can't Let Go" is a song recorded by Adele, taken from her third studio album, 25. It appears as the first bonus track on the Target and Japanese deluxe editions of the album. The song was written by Adele and Linda Perry and produced by the latter.

Background and composition Edit

Adele co-wrote "Can't Let Go" with 4 Non Blondes frontwoman Linda Perry. The song has been compared to previous material released by Adele due to its primarily piano and vocal-based production. When asked about the song by a fan during a show in Berlin, Adele revealed that, although she loves "Can't Let Go," it makes her cry, and therefore, it most likely will not be performed live.[1]

LyricsEdit

When did it go wrong, I will never know
I have loved you all my life
How did it slow down, I go round and round
Thinking about it all the time

I gave you heaven on a platter baby
I gave you everything you never gave me
I never lied and I never faked it
Only wanted for you to save me
This love, it ain't over yet
There's too much that I haven't said

Did you find the note that I wrote?
I hid it in the seam of your coat
It was hard to write with a lump in my throat
Do you even know I can't let go

Why were you so cold, let the truth me told
Tell me was it all for the thrill?
What was I thinking, I gave you everything
But you still went for the kill

I gave you heaven on a platter baby
I gave you everything you never gave me
I never lied and I never faked it
Only wanted for you to save me

Did you find the note that I wrote?
I hid it in the seam of your coat
It was hard to write with a lump in my throat
Do you even know that I can't let go

Oooh sometimes I feel like I'm in the dark
Oooh I thought I died in your arms

Did you find the note that I wrote?
I hid it in the seam of your coat
It was hard to write, I had a lump in my throat
Do you even know that I can't let go

Hope you know, I won't let go
