348: Turning Tables

I’ve been listening to Adele a lot these few days. She has a really great voice and is truly a musical gem. I agreed with someone’s comment that Adele doesn’t need autotune or backup dancers to make her performance exciting. You just need her on stage with a simple piano accompaniment and she can wow and touch millions with her voice and her songs! I did read that she did the recording of “Turning Tables” at one go. So essentially, the album version is a live version. Amazing (:

I love this song “Turning Tables”. Love her voice and the piano and strings accompaniment!

I learnt that Gwyneth Paltrow did a cover of “Turning Tables” on Glee (on which she was a guest star). And I was really surprised by her cover because it was really not bad!

Lyrics

Close enough to start a war
All that I have is on the floor
God only knows what we’re fighting for
All that I say, you always say more

I can’t keep up with your turning tables
Under your thumb, I can’t breathe

So I won’t let you close enough to hurt me
No, I won’t ask you, you to just desert me
I cant give you, what you think you gave me
It’s time to say goodbye to turning tables
To turning tables

Under hardest guise I see ooh
Where love is lost, your ghost is found
I braved a hundred storms to leave you
As hard as you try, no I will never be knocked down

I can’t keep up with your turning tables
Under your thumb, I can’t breathe
So I won’t let you close enough to hurt me, no
I won’t ask you, you to just desert me
I cant give you, what you think you gave me
It’s time to say goodbye to turning tables
Turning tables

Next time I’ll be braver
I’ll be my own savior
When the thunder calls for me
Next time I’ll be braver
I’ll be my own savior
Standing on my own two feet

I won’t let you close enough to hurt me, no
I won’t ask you, you to just desert me
I cant give you, what you think you gave me
It’s time to say goodbye to turning tables
To turning tables
Turning tables, yeah
Turning ohh
