Hometown Glory – Adele


Adele wrote this song when she was 16. She wrote the song in 10 minutes after her mother tried to persuade her to leave her home town for university.The song had received a Grammy nomination for Best Female Pop Vocal Performance and this is one of my favourite piano track.

I’ve been walking in the same way as I did. And missing out the cracks in the pavement
And tutting my heel and strutting my feet. “Is there anything I can do for you dear? Is there anyone I could call? No, and thank you, please madam, I ain’t lost, just wandering”

Round my hometown, memories are fresh. Round my hometown, the people I’ve met
Are the wonders of my world, are the wonders of my world
Are the wonders of this world, are the wonders and now

I like it in the city when the air is so thick and opaque. I love it to see everybody in short skirts, shorts and shades. I like it in the city when two worlds collide. You get the people and the government. Everybody taking different sides

Shows that we ain’t gonna stand shit. Shows that we are united
Shows that we ain’t gonna take it
Round my hometown, memories are fresh. Round my hometown, the people I’ve met
Are the wonders of my world, are the wonders of my world.
