"All I Ask" Lyrics

Adele

I will leave my heart at the door
I won't say a word
They've all been said before
So why don't we just play pretend
Like we're not scared of what's coming next
Or scared of having nothing left

Now, don't get me wrong
I know there is no tomorrow
All I ask is

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
'Coz what if I never love again?

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 matters, tell me who do I run to?

Now, don't get me wrong
I know there is no tomorrow
All I ask is

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
'Coz what if I never love again?

Let this be our lesson in love
Let this be the way we remember us
I don't wanna be cruel or vicious
And I ain't asking for forgiveness
All I ask is...

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
'Coz what if I never love again?

About

"All I Ask" is a song recorded by English singer and songwriter Adele for her third studio album 25 (2015). The song was written by Adele, Bruno Mars, Philip Lawrence and Christopher Brody Brown, while production of the track was handled by The Smeezingtons, a songwriting and record producing trio, consisting of Mars, Lawrence, and Ari Levine. According to Slate's Forrest Wickman, the song lyrically discusses the singer looking for one last night with a lover, before they go their separate ways.

"All I Ask" peaked at number 41 on the UK Singles Chart and at number 77 on the Billboard Hot 100. To promote the song, Adele performed "All I Ask" during Adele Live in New York City, on The Late Late Show with James Corden, on The Ellen DeGeneres Show and at the 58th Annual Grammy Awards. The latter performance garnered controversy due to technical issues; Adele stated afterwards that the piano microphones fell on to the piano strings, causing the glitch.
