“Look How You Want Me Now, That I Don’t Need You” – Adele

It seems as if men have no idea how valuable their relationships are until they no longer have it. Some make empty promises and apologies that hold no weight to the point of nauseum. It isn’t until the relationship comes to end, before they realize that they needed you more than they thought.

However, coming out of a relationship can leave you broken, lost and vulnerable. Sometimes, vulnerable enough to find yourself back in a relationship that left you broken in the first place. This can become an unhealthy cycle that takes away a piece of your soul with each recurrence.

There’s nothing like being revived by a new love. Especially after coming out of a heart breaking relationship. What’s even better, is finding a song that speaks life into your situation like no one else. Adele is good for this! In her song I Found a Boy, off of her album 21, she talks about a situation that many women can relate to. Telling that ungrateful ex that there is no longer room for him in your life. 

What I love about I Found a Boy, is that it showcases a woman who has finally come to understand her worth! She loved herself enough to know that the man that left her broken, pales in comparison to the new love that she’s discovered since. This can be extremely hard to do, because often times it is the love that kept us there in the first place, and that doesn’t just go away.

You have to love yourself enough to know that you deserve better. Love doesn’t hurt!

Allowing yourself to experience a love that is true, is one of the best gifts that you could give yourself. It begins with you. Make the decision to Find a Boy, that will make you forget all about the ex who is undeserving of your love.


Check the song below:

Lyrics:

I thought I told you, he’d be home soon
Couldn’t help myself, you’re too good to be true!
I fall short each time,
Every time he ain’t here
You and your charm creep closer, closer and near,
Like a fool for fire I fall, with my pride and all!
Like a bomb before explosion,
Ticking by your call
You’re the wiser one, disguised from greed
And I’m just a child who longs on her knees.

[Chorus:]
But I found a boy who I love more,
Than I ever did you before,
So stand beside the river I cried,
And let yourself down!
Look how you want me now that I don’t need you!

So, you thought that I’d crumble to my knees
At the first sight of you
Crawling back to me
To whisper ‘Will you leave your man? ‘
‘Cause you swear that this time you can stand by me.
I won’t stand by you!

[Chorus:]
‘Cause I found a boy who I love more,
Than I ever did you before,
So stand beside the river I cried
And let yourself down!
Look how you want me now that I don’t need you!

I ain’t yours for no taking,
You must be mistaken,
I could never look into your eyes
And settle for wrong
And ignore the right

[Chorus:]
When I found a boy who loves me more,
Than you ever did me before.
So stand beside the river you cry
And let yourself down!
Look how you want me now that I don’t need you!
