(Music Review) I Drink Wine by Adele Meaning, Lyrics and Translation

“I Drink Wine,” by Adele is the 7th track off her album titled “30.”

What is the song I Drink Wine by Adele all about?

This is a love song about two people whose various careers took a toll on their relationship. 

The business of the duo, or one of them, and the desire to be greater made them busy and out of touch. They overtime became a different person from what they used to know and admire of each other. Their personality changed, and this affected the relationship.

Adele attributes the issue in her relationship to the social media voices which got louder than hers and her lover and contributed to the loss of the relationship she cherishes. She also blames her ego and inability to balance her career with the family as the reason for the break-up with her lover.

This song may be giving details about the reason for Adele’s 2019 divorce from her husband, Simon Konecki.

I drink wine by Adele Lyrics

Verse 1

How can one become so bounded?

By choices that somebody else makes?

How come we’ve both become a version

Of a person, we don’t even like?

We’re in love with the world

But the world just wants to bring us down

By putting ideas in our heads

That corrupt our hearts somehow

When I was a child

Every single thing could blow my mind

Soaking it all up for fun

But now I only soak up wine

They say to play hard, you work hard

Find balance in the sacrifice

Yet I don’t know anybody

Who’s truly satisfied

You better believe I’m trying (trying, trying)

To keep climbing (climbing, climbing)

But the higher we climb

Feels like we’re both none the wiser (ah)

So I hope I learn to get over myself

Chorus

Stop trying to be somebody else

So we can love each other for free

Everybody wants something

You just want me

Verse 2

Why am I obsessing

About the things, I can’t control?

Why am I seeking approval

From people, I don’t even know?

In these crazy times, I hope to find

Something I can cling on to

‘Cause I need some substance in my life

Something real, something that feels true

You better believe for you I’ve cried (I’ve cried, I’ve cried)

High tides (high tides, high tides)

‘Cause I want you so bad

But you can’t fight fire with fire (ah)

Oh, so I hope I learn to get over myself

Chorus

Stop trying to be somebody else

Oh, I just want to love you (so we can love)

Love you for free (each other for free)

Everybody wants something from me

You just want me

Verse 3

Listen, I know how low I can go

I give as good as I get

You get the brunt of it all

‘Cause you’re all I’ve got left

Oh, I hope in time (hope in time)

We both will find (we both find) peace of mind

Sometimes the road less traveled

Is a road best left behind (oh oh)

I hope I learn to get over myself

Chorus

Stop trying to be somebody else

Oh, I just want to love you (so we can love)

Love you for free, yeah 

‘Cause everybody wants something from me

You just want me

You better believe I’m trying (trying, trying)

To keep climbing (climbing, climbing)

 But the higher we climb

 Feels like we’re both none the wiser

Outro

The only regret I have

 I wish that it was just at a different time

 A most turbulent period of my life

 Why would I put that on you?

 That’s just like a very heavy thing to have to talk about

 But because of that period of time

 Even though it was so much fun

 I didn’t get to go on and make new memories with him

 There was just memories in a big storm
