Victor Hugo takes about 1,400 pages to explain what it’s like to be really sad but also in love; Adele, meanwhile, is able to convey this in a single award-winning chart-topper.

1. "You only see me at night, and you give me your love."

2. "You shower me with words made of knives. Whenever you look at me, I wish I was her."

3. "I'll be my own savior when the thunder calls for me."

4. "I have been loving you a little more every minute since this morning."

5. "I know I have a fickle heart and a bitterness, and a wandering eye, and heaviness in my head."

6. "Love has no middle ground. Either it destroys, or it saves."

7. "Love is a fault. So be it."

8. "God only knows what we're fighting for."

9. "I miss the air, I miss my friends, I miss my mother."

10. "Sometimes, I feel like I'm in the dark. I thought I'd die in your arms. Did you find that note I wrote?"
