Adele - Chasing Pavements Lyrics

I’ve made up my mind
don’t need to think it over
if I’m wrong i am right
don’t need to look no further
this ain’t lust i know this is love

but if i tell the world
I’ll never say enough
cos it was not said to you
and thats exactly what i need to do
if i end up with you

should i give up
or should i just keep chasing pavements
even if it leads no where,
or would it be a waste
even if i knew my place should i leave it there.
should i give up
or should i just keep chasing pavements
even if it leads nowhere

i build myself up
and fly around in circles
waiting as my heart drops
and my back begins to tingle
finally could this be it

or should i give up
or should i just keep chasing pavements
even if it leads no where,
or would it be a waste
even if i knew my place should i leave it there.
should i give up
or should i just keep chasing pavements
even if it leads nowhere

should i give up
or should i just keep chasing pavements
even if it leads no where,
or would it be a waste
even if i knew my place
should i leave it there

should i give up
or should i just keep chasing pavements
even if it leads nowhere

yeaaah ehh

should i give up
or should i just keep chasing pavements
even if it leads nowhere
or would it be a waste
even if i new my place should i leave it there

should i give up
or should i just keep on chasing pavements
should i just keep on chasing pavements

ooooohhh

should i give up
or should i just keep chasing pavements
even if it leads no where,
or would it be a waste
even if i knew my place
should i leave it there

should i give up
or should i just keep chasing pavements
even if it leads no where

Adele - Chasing Pavements Review

Very original and Adele’s got such an emotive voice. She mixes Lily Allen-type lyrics with an Amy Winehouse-like soul voice and you have a unique artist indeed which is shown indefinitely on her debut single, Chasing Pavements.

This is an excellent song and Adele sings it so well and shes even excellent live too (Jonathan Ross show).

  1. Ra Says:

    I think she should have a diet and try to keep her voice stable instead to produce that squirrel noises when she is trying to groove the beat.

  2. emma Says:

  3. Cats Says:

    Message for people like Ra….how could you be so rude and thick???
    weight is not important at all….she’s great and she’s got a wonderful voice and that squirrel noises as you said are actually what make her voice so different from some other singer.
    Adele ur great :)

  4. Abbie Says:


    Oii Raa U Lil Pleb Shes Da Best Mate I Dont Care Wat Size She Iz Ya Stupid Arse And Squireell Watt Are Yuu Chattiin M8 … Go Take Some Calpol Badman HaHa Loser !! :D:D

  5. Cats is a wanker Says:

    cats, you bloody fool, she is brilliant.

    Just because you are morbidly obese, and sing like a squirrel, don’t try to pass your insecurities over to another person, that other person happening to be one of the best things to happen to music in a good few years.

    Do as Abbie says, go drink some Calpol and die

    Merry Fucking Christmas

    And wtf is wrong with you and her weight?! Didn’t you notice that almost all opera singers all a bit overweight…and they do sing better than slim and anorexic bitches…geeez….Adele rocks! Haters go f yourselves!

  13. BaltimoreMann Says:

    Most original video (chasing pavements) I’ve seen in a while, and if you take the time to listen to the lyrics, it’ll relate to a lot of peoples problems. I love her. I’d marry her in a heartbeat.

  14. Ely Says:

    The video is sick I love it, does anybody know who choreographed it?
    - NY

  15. Es Says:

    love the song, love her voice… I was on youtube listening to it, and reading some of the comments, anyway one of the viewers said there was a video by a russian singer which was the same… i watched it and although it is not “identical” it is very similar storyline.

    still love Adeles

  16. pat adams Says:

    Adele is truly an artist, beautiful, refreshing, different, and a real woman w/curves!! I can’t get her music outta my head!! goin out to treat myself and buy her cd!

  17. cogo Says:

    WoW! I just heard this song and I absolutely love it.

  18. daphne Says:

    The first time I heard Adele it was haunting. I would hear the song and never remember the name or the artist. It made me bloody mad. Bonkers. I was always asking people who was that singing. Finally I remembered her name wrote it down and pulled Adele up on U Tube. The first time I saw the video for chasing pavements I cried. Its like watching ballet. I think you are amazingly sensitive and talented Adele. I told all my friends to watch the video. I was like a walking advertisement for the video. I think you have to have a little bit of an artistic soul to fully understand that video. You go Girl!!!!
