“Can I Get It” is a song by British singer-songwriter Adele, taken from her fourth studio album, 30. The song was written by Adele with Max Martin and Shellback[1] and serves as the sixth track on the album. Its title was confirmed on November 1, 2021, when the album’s track listing was revealed online.[2]

In an interview with Rolling Stone, Adele revealed that “Can I Get It” was written about her desire to be in a real relationship rather than one defined by casual sex, largely based on her experiences dating in Los Angeles after her divorce from Simon Konecki.[3] Sonically, the song has drawn favorable comparisons to George Michael’s “Faith.”[4][5][6][7]

Lyrics[]

Pave me a path to follow
And I’ll tread any dangerous road
I will beg and I’ll steal, I will borrow
If I can make it, if I can make your heart my home
Throw me to the water
I don’t care how deep or shallow
Because my heart can pound like thunder
And your love, and your love can set me free

Oh, I have promised I will love you till the end of time
Through it all, the good, the bad, the ugly, and divine
I will be the melody, the rhythm and your rhyme
All I want is for you to be mine, mine

So can I get it right now? Mh
Can I get it right now? (Can I get it here?)
Can I get it right now? (Huh)
Can I get it right now?
Let me, let me just come and get it

Can I get it?

You tease me with your control
Because I long to live under your spell
And without your love I’m hollow
I won’t make it, I won’t make it on my own

Oh, I have promised I will love you till the end of time (The end of time)
Through it all, the good, the bad, the ugly and divine (So divine)
I will be the melody, the rhythm and your rhyme (Mh-mh-mh)
All I want is for you to be mine, mine

So can I get it right now? Mh
Can I get it right now? (Can I get it here?)
Can I get it right now? (Huh)
Can I get it right now?
Let me, let me just come and get it

Can I get it?

When will you run with me?
Like I know you wanna (Like you want to, like you want to)
You’re the one for me
And I’m countin’ on you (On you)
To put the pieces of me back together

So can I get it right now? Mh
Can I get it right now? (Mh, mh)
Can I get it right now? (Uh)
Can I get it right now?
Let me, let me just come and get it
