Adele – One and Only (Piano Cover)

I’m a huge Adele fan, going back to her debut album “19” to her comeback “25” featuring the song “One and Only”. I’m even one of the few (18,000) fans that got to see her during her Phoenix, Arizona tour in 2016.

Very rarely do I ever feel an instant connection to a celebrity, but Adele – that’s my best frand.

So, out of admiration and aspiration, I tried covering Adele’s One and Only on the piano. Full disclosure, I am not an expert or professional. I am an amateur singer and YouTube piano player at best! But that wasn’t going to stop be from trying!

And hey, it doesn’t hurt to have a love interest that you can serenade right?

Whatever the result, I highly encourage you to “sing like no one’s listening”! Someone could be falling in love with the unique sound of your voice. And if your soul craves it, let it out songbird!

Sing like no one's listening & watch someone fall in love with you. Let it out songbird <3 Click To Tweet

So without further ado, I present you my unabashed piano cover of Adele’s One and Only. Vocal tips welcome in the comments!

 

Adele – One and Only Lyrics

You’ve been on my mind
I grow fonder every day
Lose myself in time
Just thinking of your face
God only knows why it’s taken me
So long to let my doubts go
You’re the only one that I want

I don’t know why I’m scared
I’ve been here before
Every feeling, every word
I’ve imagined it all
You’ll never know if you never try
To forget your past and simply be mine

I dare you to let me be your, your one and only
I promise I’m worthy
To hold in your arms
So come on and give me the chance
To prove I am the one who can walk that mile
Until the end starts

If I’ve been on your mind
You hang on every word I say
Lose yourself in time
At the mention of my name
Will I ever know how it feels to hold you close
And have you tell me
Whichever road I choose, you’ll go?

I don’t know why I’m scared
‘Cause I’ve been here before
Every feeling, every word
I’ve imagined it all
You’ll never know if you never try
To forget your past and simply be mine

I dare you to let me be your, your one and only
I promise I’m worthy, mm
To hold in your arms
So come on and give me the chance
To prove I am the one who can walk that mile
Until the end starts

I know it ain’t easy giving up your heart
I know it ain’t easy giving up your heart
Nobody’s perfect
(I know it ain’t easy giving up your heart)
Trust me I’ve learned it
Nobody’s perfect
(I know it ain’t easy giving up your heart)
Trust me I’ve learned it
Nobody’s perfect
(I know it ain’t easy giving up your heart)
Trust me I’ve learned it
Nobody’s perfect
(I know it ain’t easy giving up your heart)
Trust me I’ve learned it

So I dare you to let me be your, your one and only
I promise I’m worthy
To hold in your arms
So come on and give me the chance
To prove that I am the, one who can walk that mile
Until the end starts

Come on and give me the chance
To prove that I am the one who can, walk that mile
Until the end starts
