Someone Like You

Adele- Someone Like You

I’ve never really listened to a song this much besides Garth Brooks- Friends in Low Places…. My Songwriting class has really opened up my world to lyrics and analyzing a song and really feeling what the person is feeling. Well boy Howdy do I feel this one… I think the first 20 times I cried when I heard it…. sometimes is was sappy oh I miss him tears, followed by wow that sucks, followed by “yeah I’ll find someone better” which is what I’m currently on. I relate to most of the songs on Adele’s new album which is quite fun! She was one of the artist I was told to watch perform ( shes a big girl with a big voice)  Maybe I’ll make one a country song and record it on here…… My friend  does covers all the time for his friends and family.. why couldn’t I, I guess…. Anyways this song just touches me right now so I figured I’d share with y’all

I heard that you’re settled down,
That you found a girl and you’re married now,
I heard that your dreams came true,
Guess she gave you things I didn’t give to you,
Old friend, why are you so shy?
Ain’t like you to hold back or hide from the light,

I hate to turn up out of the blue uninvited,
But I couldn’t stay away, I couldn’t fight it,
I had hoped you’d see my face,
And that you’d be reminded that for me it isn’t over,

Never mind, I’ll find someone like you,
I wish nothing but the best for you, too,
Don’t forget me, I beg,
I remember you said,
“Sometimes it lasts in love,
But sometimes it hurts instead,”
Sometimes it lasts in love,
But sometimes it hurts instead, yeah,

You know how the time flies,
Only yesterday was the time of our lives,
We were born and raised in a summer haze,
Bound by the surprise of our glory days,

I hate to turn up out of the blue uninvited,
But I couldn’t stay away, I couldn’t fight it,
I had hoped you’d see my face,
And that you’d be reminded that for me it isn’t over,

Never mind, I’ll find someone like you,
I wish nothing but the best for you, too,
Don’t forget me, I beg,
I remember you said,
“Sometimes it lasts in love,
But sometimes it hurts instead,”

Nothing compares,
No worries or cares,
Regrets and mistakes, they’re memories made,
Who would have known how bittersweet this would taste?

Nevermind, I’ll find someone like you,
I wish nothing but the best for you,
Don’t forget me, I beg,
I remember you said,
“Sometimes it lasts in love,
But sometimes it hurts instead,”
