10 Adele songs about relationship problems and struggles

Melt My Heart to Stone

When you’re in love with a person and want to make it work, but they continue to do things that hurt you. They consistently ask for your forgiveness like they’ll change even though apart of you knows that they’re making empty promises.

“Each and every time I turn around to leave I feel my heart begin to burst and bleed. So desperately I try to link it with my head, but instead I fall back to my knees. As you tear your way right through me, I forgive you once again…”


Cold Shoulder

This song shares the pain of realizing that the relationship is pretty much over and that the partner looks at someone else more romantically than the one they are with.

“These days when I see you you make it look like I’m see-through. Do tell me why you waste our time..”

First Love

When the honeymoon stage and thrill of your first love leaves. There’s no spark so you have to let the relationship go. It’s truly a heartbreaking song.

“This love has dried up, and stayed behind and if I stay I’ll be a lie..”

Right as Rain

This song expresses how you can be with someone that hurts you or likes to argue because it excites them. They play games when all you want to do is love them, but you’re tired of all of the struggling.

“We won’t be making up, I’ve cried my heart out and now I’ve had enough of love..”


Eventually you can end up being fed up of trying with someone when it becomes too hard. The person you’re with may constantly try to trick you into thinking everything will be better where you aren’t the only one giving your all, but things never change.

“I’m tired of trying. Your teasing ain’t enough. Fed up of biding your time when I don’t get nothing back…”

Best for Last

When you are in love with someone, but realize they aren’t acknowledging that they love you. You then realize that your situation is temporary and they want their ex back while you’re longing for them to say they love you.

“Why is it every time I think I’ve tried my hardest, it turns out it ain’t enough? You’re still not mentioning love. What am I supposed to do to make you want me properly? I’m takin’ these chances and getting nowhere and though I’m trying my hardest you go back to her…”

Turning Tables

When someone keeps hurting you and you keep fighting. You kept giving, but you’re at a point where you don’t have anymore to give so you want to give up and let go.

“Close enough to start a war. All that I have is on the floor. God only knows what we’re fighting for. All that I say, you always say more. I can’t keep up with your turning tables. Under your thumb, I can’t breathe..”

Take It All

When you keep giving your all, but the person you’re with leaves or threatens to leave when you thought they truly loved you and wanted to make it work.

“Maybe I should leave, to help you see nothing is better than this and this is everything we need. So is it over? Is this really it, you’re giving up so easily. I thought you loved me more than this..”


I’ll Be Waiting for You

When the person you want gives up on you. You’re sorry for everything that went wrong and you wish they’d stay, but since they aren’t.. you’ll be waiting for them to return.

“I’ll be waiting for you when you’re ready to love me again. I’ll put my hands up. I’ll do everything different. I’ll be better to you. I’ll be waiting for you when you’re ready to love me again…”


I can’t make you love me

When you can feel/see that someone doesn’t love or feel the same way as you do about them..

“Cause I can’t make you love me if you don’t. You can’t make your heart feel something that it won’t….”



I hope that you guys find some solace within listening to these Adele songs. I know I have in the past.
