Songfacts®:

  • Adele wrote this early song, in which she reflects on how opposites attract, about her best friend Laura Dockrill. The twosome first met when they were both attending the Brit School of Performing Arts in Croydon.

    You like to be so close, I like to be alone
    I like to sit on chairs and you prefer the floor
    Walking with each other
    Think we'll never match at all
    But we do


    The pair had a major falling out around the time Adele was recording 19 and did not rekindle their friendship until the release of 21. Since then they have remained close and when Laura gave birth to a baby boy in February 2018, Adele agreed to be his godmother. Laura has gone on to carve out a successful career as a poet, author, illustrator and short story writer.
