“You’ll Never See Me Again” is a song written by Adele and Fraser T Smith for Adele's sophomore album, 21. The song was produced by Smith. One of three collaborations with Smith written for 21, it was cut from the album for unknown reasons, although many Adele fans have speculated that it bore too much resemblance to “Set Fire to the Rain.”

On August 31, 2014, a snippet of the song leaked online.[1] It was the first new music from Adele since she released “Skyfall” in 2012. Some believed that the song would be included on her then-upcoming third studio album, however, it was later confirmed that it simply a 21 reject.

The following day, September 1, the entire song leaked onto the Internet, along with “Never Gonna Leave You” — another collaboration with Smith — and the previously unreleased demo of “Set Fire to the Rain.”[1]

Prior to it leaking, fans were tipped off about the song’s existence after it appeared on a CD listed on Discogs titled Fraser T. Smith Sessions, alongside “Never Gonna Leave You” and “Set Fire to the Rain.”[2] 

The song only appears on Fraser T. Smith's BMI because Adele is incorrectly credited as “Adele Watkins” on it.[3]

PromotionEdit

Despite never receiving an official release, “You’ll Never See Me Again” received some radio airplay in Greece and Arabia upon leaking in full.

LyricsEdit

In the darkness of my heart
Is a shadow of your face
From the deepest part of my regret
I hear the words I wish I’d said

At the dawning of the day
I can barely see the light
I make up memories in my head
They help to fill the emptiness you’ve left

I can’t drown in your tears
I won’t face your fears
I need to find my own

You’ll never see me again
I’ll be better in time
Let the waves take me under
I know I’ll survive
You’ll never see me again

At the dawning of the day
I can barely see the light
I make up memories in my head
They help to fill the emptiness you’ve left

I can’t drown in your tears
I won’t face your fears
I need to find my own

You’ll never see me again
I’ll be better in time
Let the waves take me under
I know I’ll survive

Let the floor beneath me fall
Let the sky come crashing down
Turn all my right to wrong
But after you life goes on
You’ll never see me again

I’ve been learning to live
Without you now
It’s taking all my strength
But I’m stronger now

You’ll never see me again
I’ll be better in time
Let the waves take me under
I know I’ll survive

Let the floor beneath me fall
Let the sky come crashing down
Turn all my right to wrong
But after you life goes on
You’ll never see me again

You’ll never see me again

You’ll never see me again
