La richiesta di perdono nel singolo “Hello” di Adele

“Hello” è un singolo della cantautrice britannica Adele, il primo estratto dal terzo album in studio e pubblicato il 23 ottobre 2015.

Hello è una ballata romantica dal sound avvolgente e malinconico, con un sottofondo di pianoforte e un’atmosfera pop con sfumature soul e cori gospel. Esprime nostalgia e rammarico, e desiderio di perdono per le scelte sbagliate del passato.

Il videoclip è stato girato in toni seppia nei dintorni di Montréal, ambientato all’interno di una casa spoglia, vuota e polverosa: Adele viene rappresentata come una figura solitaria e sconsolata, che mette a confronto i ricordi del passato, tra attimi di tenerezza, litigi e risate con una storia d’amore ormai finita da tempo, forse a causa della morte di lei, come intuibile dal ritornello.

TESTO

Hello, it’s me
I was wondering if after all these years
you’d like to meet
To go over everything
They say that time’s supposed to heal ya,
but I ain’t done much healing

Hello, can you hear me?
I’m in California dreaming about who we used to be
When we were younger and free
I’ve forgotten how it felt
before the world fell at our feet

There’s such a difference between us
And a million miles

Hello from the other side
I must’ve called a thousand times
To tell you I’m sorry for everything that I’ve done
But when I call you never seem to be home

Hello from the outside
At least I can say that I’ve tried
To tell you I’m sorry for breaking your heart
But it don’t matter, it clearly doesn’t tear you apart
Anymore

Hello, how are you?
It’s so typical of me to talk about myself
I’m sorry, I hope that you’re well
Did you ever make it out of that town
where nothing ever happened?

It’s no secret that the both of us
Are running out of time

So hello from the other side
I must’ve called a thousand times
To tell you I’m sorry for everything that I’ve done
But when I call you never seem to be home

Hello from the outside
At least I can say that I’ve tried
To tell you I’m sorry for breaking your heart
But it don’t matter, it clearly doesn’t tear you apart
Anymore, ooooohh
Anymore, ooooohh
Anymore, ooooohh
Anymore, anymore

Hello from the other side
I must’ve called a thousand times
To tell you I’m sorry for everything that I’ve done
But when I call you never seem to be home

Hello from the outside
At least I can say that I’ve tried
To tell you I’m sorry for breaking your heart
But it don’t matter, it clearly doesn’t tear you apart
Anymore
