Send My Love (To Your New Lover) Lyrics
Just the guitar, okay cool

This was all you, none of it me
You put your hands on, on my body and told me (mmm)
You told me you were ready
For the big one, for the big jump
I'd be your last love everlasting you and me (mmm)
That was what you told me

I'm giving you up
I've forgiven it all
You set me free-ee

Send my love to your new lover
Treat her better
We've gotta let go of all of our ghosts
We both know we ain't kids no more
Send my love to your new lover
Treat her better
We gotta let go of all of our ghosts
We both know we ain't kids no more

I was too strong you were trembling
You couldn't handle the hot heat rising (rising)
Mmm, baby I'm so rising
I was running, you were walking
You couldn't keep up, you were falling down (down)
Mmm, there's only one way down

I'm giving you up
I've forgiven it all
You set me free-ee, ohh

Send my love to your new lover
Treat her better
We've gotta let go of all of our ghosts
We both know we ain't kids no more
Send my love to your new lover
Treat her better
We've gotta let go of all of our ghosts
We both know we ain't kids no more

If you're ready, if you're ready
If you're ready, I am ready
If you're ready, if you're ready
We both know we ain't kids no more
No, we ain't kids no more

I'm giving you up
I've forgiven it all
You set me free

Send my love to your new lover
Treat her better
We've gotta let go of all of our ghosts
We both know we ain't kids no more
Send my love to your new lover
Treat her better
We gotta let go of all of our ghosts
We both know we ain't kids no more

(Send my love to your new lover)
If you're ready, if you're ready
(Treat her better)
If you're ready, are you ready?
We've gotta let go of all of our ghosts
We both know we ain't kids no more
(Send my love to your new lover)
If you're ready, if you're ready
(Treat her better)
If you're ready, are you ready?
We've gotta let go of all of our ghosts
We both know we ain't kids no more

Music video:
"Send My Love (To Your New Lover)" on YouTube

The video was shot in London and directed by Patrick Daughters. Adele did 12 takes for the video, which were superimposed on top of each other to create the finished product. There was no choreographer, which kept it natural.

Patrick said:
"After a couple takes, once everybody was a little bit looser in term of us on the camera side, she just really let go. Towards the end, we were doing takes that were more about the movement and less about the emotional performance. They were about the patterning, how this was going to appear layered over many times, playing with the texture of the dress a little bit."

• Adele picked out the floral dress she wears, which is by Dolce & Gabbana.
