The theme for Song Lyric Sunday this week is last.”

~~~~~~~~~~

All I Ask by British singer-songwriter Adele, was written about a potentially final escapade in a failing relationship. It was a collaboration by Bruno Mars, Brody Brown and Philip Lawrence for Adele’s third album, 25.

The song received a relatively large amount of promo for a non-single: it was first performed live as a part of Adele: Live in New York City, and next in the Carpool Karaoke segment on The Late Late Show with James Corden.

Lamenting the end of a break in All I Ask, Adele asks for one last night where she’s treated like more than just a friend.

FUN FACT: Some fans of Adele began associating a ‘curse’ with this song after its promo spot on the 58th Grammy Awards. During Adele’s All I Ask performance there (which itself was a surprise, she had been expected to perform her then-latest single, When We Were Young), the piano microphones fell from their mounts and onto the strings, creating a loud clanging noise perceivable to the audience and multiple times louder yet in Adele’s earpiece. She bravely sung on, later consoling herself with some cheeseburgers from In-n-Out and a redo performance on Ellen.

The video is from her live performance on Ellen.

Enjoy!

All I Ask

[Verse 1]
I will leave my heart at the door
I won’t say a word
They’ve all been said before, you know
So why don’t we just play pretend
Like we’re not scared of what is coming next
Or scared of having nothing left?

[Pre-Chorus]
Look, don’t get me wrong
I know there is no tomorrow
All I ask is

[Chorus]
If this is my last night with you
Hold me like I’m more than just a friend
Give me a memory I can use
Take me by the hand while we do
What lovers do
It matters how this ends
‘Cause what if I never love again?

[Verse 2]
I don’t need your honesty
It’s already in your eyes
And I’m sure my eyes, they speak for me
No one knows me like you do
And since you’re the only one that mattered
Tell me, who do I run to?

[Pre-Chorus]
Look, don’t get me wrong
I know there is no tomorrow
All I ask is

[Chorus]
If this is my last night with you
Hold me like I’m more than just a friend
Give me a memory I can use
Take me by the hand while we do
What lovers do
It matters how this ends
‘Cause what if I never love again?

[Bridge]
Let this be our lesson in love
Let this be the way we remember us
I don’t want to be cruel or vicious
And I ain’t asking for forgiveness
All I ask is

[Chorus]
If this is my last night with you
Hold me like I’m more than just a friend
Give me a memory I can use
Take me by the hand while we do
What lovers do
It matters how this ends
‘Cause what if I never love again?
