The 23-year-old singer`s last album `21` contained numerous songs about her bitter split from an ex-boyfriend and she claims she isn`t able to bare her soul in conversation like she can though her songs.
She said: "In person, I can never talk about my feelings. If you were my man and we were having a serious conversation, I`d be laughing. Or just crying. I can never be articulate with how something is making me feel. I can never find the words."
But Adele - who is currently dating Simon Konecki - claims the words and emotions just pour out of her when she writes her songs and she doesn`t know where some of the more poetic observations come from.
She told the US edition of Vogue magazine: "I have no idea where it comes from. I don`t read literature. I don`t have a very big capacity for language and words. I`m quite limited when it comes to just chatting. But my head comes alive when I`m writing music, and I start using words and describing emotions I had no idea existed in me."
