"Promise This" is a song originally recorded by Cheryl Cole and featured on her second studio album Messy Little Raindrops. Adele covered it on Radio 1 Live Lounge. [1] When Adele talked about the song before performing it, she talked about Cheryl Cole:

I love her. She’s my favourite person ever. I got to meet her at the Royal Variety and Dappy from N-Dubz was next to her. It was amazing, like living a dream. [1]

This may have been inspiration for her performing the song.

Adele further stated that she noted similar themes between "Promise This" and "Rolling in the Deep".

ReceptionEdit

Adele's cover of the song immediately received praise from critics and fans, many even going as far as to say it was better than the original version. [2][3][4][5]

LyricsEdit

Alouette-uette-uette
Alouette-uette-uette
Alouette-uette-uette
Plume élevé l’aile

In my beginning, there was nothing
So empty
In the space between
And you came in
Turned the lights on
And created what it’s came to be
 Before I pluck your wings cover me please
spread your wings cover me and

Promise this if I die before I wake, oh
Promise this take a time to say your grace
On your knees you pray for me
Promise this, be the last to kiss my lips

Alouette-uette-uette
Alouette-uette-uette
Alouette-uette-uette
 Déployer l’aile

Alouette-uette-uette
Alouette-uette-uette
Alouette-uette-uette
Plume élevé l’aile

Though I’m walking
Through the shadows
You are with me
and you comfort me
Lay me down now, time for sleeping
But before that would you…on me
Before I pluck your wings cover me
Please spread your wings cover me and

Promise this if I die before I wake, oh
Promise this take a time to say your grace
On your knees you pray for me
Promise this, be the last to kiss my lips

Alouette-uette-uette
Alouette-uette-uette
Alouette-uette-uette
 Déployer l’aile

Alouette-uette-uette
Alouette-uette-uette
Alouette-uette-uette
Plume élevé l’aile

By a thread we’re hanging on
In the hope you don’t let go
If you ever leave me
No, I wanna go with you

Promise this if I die before I wake, oh
Promise this take a time to say your grace
On your knees, you pray for me
Promise this, be the last to kiss my lips

Alouette-uette-uette
Alouette-uette-uette
Alouette-uette-uette
 Déployer l’aile

Alouette-uette-uette
Alouette-uette-uette
Alouette-uette-uette
Plume élevé l’aile

Alouette déployer l’aile
Plume élevé l’aile
