Adele Can Be Your Remedy

I love listening to music, I always have. The first time I ever remember being entranced by music was when I was a young girl. My parents gave me a little red record player that would play singles and I would sit in my bedroom and listen to musicals and story books. My favourite was an engaging story narrated by the late and great Mickey Rooney. The story was about a group of kids who would sneak into an old theatre and play with abandoned musical instruments. During the course of the evening, each of the instruments would magically come to life and teach each of the kids the joy of music. It really had a positive impact on me. It piqued my interest in music, and that love that has never left me.

As I grew older, story books turned into ABBA. Around the age of 15-16 pop music took over. My super cool double-deck cassette player would bellow out everything from Phil Collins to Mel and Kim, Madonna and Cyndi Lauper to Jimmy Barnes and John Farnham. In my early 20’s I would sit on the floor with a pair of head phones and let the music take me away. I went through a bit of a ‘stage’ dreaming of being a famous singer 🙂 but my ability to hold a note was disastrous – a pig farting would sound better than me!

The older I get, the more diverse my tastes become. These days performers such as Adam Lambert, Coldplay, Ellie Goulding and Churches can be heard playing in my car. I also enjoy Safia, Leona Lewis, Birds of Tokyo and Adele. It really comes down to my mood, but since Adele released her latest album, 25, I have had her songs on constant replay. I admit though, I am a tiny bit over her hit single Hello. It is a great song, but after listening to it on my phone, in my car, on the radio, on tv…I just want to say goodbye to Hello 🙂 There is however one particular song I absolutely love at the moment and that is Adele’s song Remedy.

Having a crappy day at work? Friends have let you down? Isn’t it nice to have someone to lean on?… Someone to help ease the pain of what ever is going on in your life… Remedy is a song that soothes the soul. A reminder that you are not alone. Sometimes there are words you want and need to hear in your life. You just want the pain to go away, the hurt to fade, the confusion to clear and stop torturing your mind. Remedy is a balm. Adele sings like a friend or lover would. She just wants you to be ok. Life isn’t easy, it’s not supposed to be, there are lessons we have to learn. But damn, it can get hard. When it’s all getting a bit much talk to your lover, your friend, your wife, your husband. Lay together on the couch and listen to Adele’s song. Let her words wash over you and let the worries of the world drift away.

Remedy – Lyrics

I remember all of the things that I thought I wanted to be
So desperate to find a way out of my world and finally breathe
Right before my eyes I saw, my heart it came to life
This ain’t easy, it’s not meant to be
Every story has its scars

When the pain cuts you deep
When the night keeps you from sleeping
Just look and you will see
That I will be your remedy
When the world seems so cruel
And your heart makes you feel like a fool
I promise you will see
That I will be, I will be your remedy

No river is too wide or too deep for me to swim to you
Come whatever, I’ll be the shelter that won’t let the rain come through
Your love, it is my truth
And I will always love you
Love you

When the pain cuts you deep
When the night keeps you from sleeping
Just look and you will see
That I will be your remedy
When the world seems so cruel
And your heart makes you feel like a fool
I promise you will see
That I will be, I will be your remedy

When the pain cuts you deep
When the night keeps you from sleeping
Just look and you will see
I will be, I will be
When the world seems so cruel
And your heart makes you feel like a fool
I promise you will see
That I will be, I will be, I will be…
Your Remedy
