How many of us have been in this situation? Trapped in a toxic relationship we were unable to break free from.  Adele’s “Love in the Dark” is a classic breakup song. Living with this relationship is living “in the Dark,” and Adele realizes that she wants to “live” and not just “survive.”

“Love in the Dark” is a slow, sad, beautiful song from Adele, and it’s probably based on a lot of what 21 was based on. Adele has said that 25 is a make-up album, as opposed to 21 which was a break-up album. However, in this song, Adele does reach back for a little of what made her famous and executes it skillfully in this song.

Take your eyes off of me so I can leave
I’m far too ashamed to do it with you watching me
This is never ending, we have been here before
But I can’t stay this time ’cause I don’t love you anymore
Please stay where you are
Don’t come any closer
Don’t try to change my mind
I’m being cruel to be kind

I can’t love you in the dark
It feels like we’re oceans apart
There is so much space between us
Maybe we’re already defeated
Ah-yeah-yeah-yeah-yeah-yeah-yeah everything changed me

You have given me something that I can’t live without
You mustn’t underestimate that when you are in doubt
But I don’t want to carry on like everything is fine
The longer we ignore it all the more that we will fight
Please don’t fall apart
I can’t face your breaking heart
I’m trying to be brave
Stop asking me to stay

I can’t love you in the dark
It feels like we’re oceans apart
There is so much space between us
Maybe we’re already defeated
Ah-yeah-yeah-yeah-yeah-yeah-yeah everything changed me

We’re not the only ones
I don’t regret a thing
Every word I’ve said
You know I’ll always mean
It is the world to me
That you are in my life
But I want to live
And not just survive

That’s why I can’t love you in the dark
It feels like we’re oceans apart
There is so much space between us
Maybe we’re already defeated
‘Cause ah-yeah-yeah-yeah-yeah-yeah-yeah everything changed me
And I-I-I-I-I don’t think you can save me
