A song's meaning can be very ambiguous at times and can be interpreted in many different ways. Often it’s impossible to know what the writer was originally inspired by. It’s even more difficult to imagine how some of the most iconic songs came to be written.

Throughout her career, Adele has delivered heartbreaking, powerful songs that would give anyone goosebumps. One of her most famous ballads is 'Hello,' a tragic love song in keeping with her usual style. While her songs are deeply emotional, Adele is one of the more private celebrities when it comes to talking about her personal life and relationships. However, she's breaking her silence in an intimate interview with Oprah Winfrey and has spoken about the circumstances under which she wrote the 'Hello.' "The song, to me, was the beginning of me trying to find myself. And I hadn't figured out yet what it was that I had to do for that," she said. "When I wrote it, it was a real ode to like, little me, older me, all of these things. It's just a song about, like, I'm still here."
