Yes, we’re still addicted to ‘Hello,’ but it’s time to take off the repeat and add one more song to the playlist. Adele’s new song, ‘When We Were Young’ is finally here, about a love story she had when she was younger — and it will break your heart.

Adele debuted a clip of her interview with 60 Minutes on Nov. 16, which featured our first listen of “When We Were Young.” However, she took to YouTube to share the full performance, which she did at The Church Studios, and well, it. is. flawless. Watch her belt out her new soon-to-be hit here.

Here are the full lyrics to “When We Were Young”:

Everybody loves the things you do
From the way you talk
To the way you move…
Everybody here is watching you
‘Cause you feel like home
You’re like a dream come true

But if by chance you’re here alone
Can I have a moment?
Before I go?
‘Cause I’ve been by myself all night long
Hoping you’re someone I used to know

You look like a movie
You sound like a song,
My God, this reminds me
Of when we were young

Let me photograph you in this light
In case it is the last time
That we might be exactly like we were
Before we realized
We were sad of getting old
It made us restless
It was just like a movie
It was just like a song

I was so scared to face my fears
Cause nobody told me that you’d be here
And I swore you moved overseas
That’s what you said, when you left me

You still look like a movie
You still sound like a song
My God, this reminds me
Of when we were young

Let me photograph you in this light
In case it is the last time
That we might be exactly like we were
Before we realized
We were sad of getting old
It made us restless
It was just like a movie
It was just like a song

When we were young…
(When we were young)
When we were young…
(When we were young)

It’s hard to win me back
Everything just takes me back
To when you were there
To when you were there
And a part of me keeps holding on
Just in case it hasn’t gone
I guess I still care
Do you still care?

It was just like a movie
It was just like a song
My God, this reminds me
Of when we were young

When we were young…
(When we were young)
When we were young…
(When we were young)

Let me photograph you in this light
In case it is the last time
That we might be exactly like we were
Before we realized
We were sad of getting old
It made us restless
I’m so mad I’m getting old
It makes me reckless
It was just like a movie
It was just like a song
When we were young
