Someone Like You

Album: 21 (2011)
Charted: 1 1
  • 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 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'll remember you say
    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 it 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 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'll remember you say
    Sometimes it lasts in love but sometimes it hurts instead, yeah

    Nothing compares, no worries or cares
    Regrets and mistakes their memories made
    Who would have known how bittersweet
    This would taste

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

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

    Sometimes it lasts in love but sometimes it hurts instead, yey yey Writer/s: Adele Laurie Blue Adkins, Daniel Dodd Wilson

  • Julia from Milton, PaIf this song were a potato, it would be a really good potato.
  • Tonya from Theodore, AlThis song moves my heart and soul!
  • Aleps from Chihuahua, MexicoThis song really remind us how simple we are when we are suffering for someone we love. That simple... Is lovely to remember how human and fragile we can be. I had a similar experience. Wounds are still there inside. Thanks Adele for being so honest and show us your heart.
  • Linda from Oakland, CaAdele is probably right when she said she'll be known for this song. Not "Rollin' in the Deep," this one.
  • Megan from Stevenson, AlWhen I first heard this I literally stopped and just stared at the tv. It was amazing! Her voice is one in a million. Her lyrics are so great. I love the way her voice cracks in this from emotion...
  • Camille from Toronto, OhThis song grew on me. Now I love it, and sometimes after I hear it, it will play in a continuous loop in my head for days after. The piano is incredible, (of course so is Adele's voice), but the piano ties the whole song together, gives it the right intro, tempo and feel to the words, adds elegance to the heartbreak.
  • Randy from Ashland, OhI've never heard a song like this,..it's so deep,..really tugs at the strings in your heart! This woman has an absolutely
    incredible voice. This song makes me reflect on the good times when I was married. How much I was so in love with my wife!
    I miss what we had, so much so that the prospect of staying single the rest of my life is quite appealing. Thanks for that song Adele! It's a wonderful song.
  • Jon from Enumclaw , WaJust epic!!!!
  • Nicki from Baltimore, MdSurprised no one has commented about this song yet. Its so beautiful. Very deep break up song.
