A woman is reminiscing about her ex boyfriend and how much she misses him. She places a call towards him in hopes of talking and meeting up again. She uses the metaphor 'us and a million miles' to represent how far they've drifted apart and what she wishes to happen between them. She acknowledges her mistakes by saying that its typical of her to talk about herself. This is mostly just a song about how Adele misses a boy and wants things between them to change. By saying hello to a new beginning.
Oppression, dear Oppression. And in the fields of love, mind you. A state which is oddly noticed that a fair share of relationships is the only one they could survive. Luckily Adele here declares she is not one them as she cannot take this, however this bridge sparkles up thoughts regarding the matter....
She's utterly happy to be with him, however there is a strong feeling throughout the verses that she doesn't deserve him, consequently she drowns in insecurity of the fear she is just not too good for him... Funny, yesterday I watched fassbinder's Bitter tears of Petra von Can and I am in this mood..
Now that's something... Don't we all at some point in our lives wonder what happened to the X and Y loved one that at some point our paths crosses and we exchanged a few kisses, shared some cuddles... The crush of the elementary school or the love of the freshman year in college...

Realization of love. Just wrong timing. Funny how she's trying to recapture his love. She doesn't want to play passive like she was all along until now. They've been playing around with each other, and both of them don't feel much towards the other. Like it's always a makeshift love in times of need. But now that she understands her real feelings she's been waiting for him to come back and tell "I love you" with all his heart. His love is precious to her right now and she feels they're meant for each other. Hope is all she has since the reality sucks.

She realizes that he's seeing someone else after they haven't seen each other in a long time and she asks why he wouldn't tell her? The funny thing is that then she appears once again, not really being happy for him, but wanting to be part of that happiness and trying to win him back. Expecting that maybe and just maybe, is she's there then he'll see her and want her.
