But if I tell the world, I'll never say enough
Cause it was not said to you
And that's exactly what I need to do if I'd end up with you

from Adele – Chasing Pavements Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Adele wants to shout her feelings to the world — which does her no good unless those words are actually spoken to the one she loves — which, no matter how nerve-wracking talking to a crush might be, is exactly what she must do if she ever wants the chance to be with him.
