Someone Like You

Album: Poetic Champions Compose (1987)
  • I've been searching a long time
    Someone exactly like you
    I've been traveling all around the world
    Waiting for you to come through

    Someone like you makes it all worth while
    Someone like you keeps me satisfied
    Someone exactly like you

    I've been travelin' a hard road
    Baby, lookin' for someone exactly like you
    I've been carryin' my heavy load
    Waiting for the light to come shining through

    Someone like you makes it all worth while
    Someone like you keeps me satisfied
    Someone exactly like you

    I've been doin' some soul searching
    To find out where you're at
    I've been up and down the highway
    In all kinds of foreign lands

    Someone like you makes it all worth while
    Someone like you keeps me satisfied
    Someone exactly like you

    I've been all around the world
    Marching to the beat of a different drum
    But just lately I have realized
    Maybe the best is yet to come

    Someone like you makes it all worth while
    Someone like you keeps me satisfied
    Someone exactly like you
    Someone exactly like you
    Someone exactly like you Writer/s: Van Morrison
    Publisher: BMG Rights Management

  • Chris Man from OntarioPlayed this as our first song at my wedding. Listen again, though. This is NOT of love in this world; it's a spiritual song to The Almighty.
  • Mari from Austin, TxI first heard this song in 1991, when I was 11 years old and went to the see the movie "Only the Lonely" the movie starred the late & great John Candy.
    It was played during a pivotal point in the movie when he had to make a choice in love.

    At the time I never heard of this song or Morrison, my brother is the one that introduced me to Van by leaving his CD MOONDANCE behind one weekend home from college. I feel in love with his music that night.

    But this song "SOmeone like you" always stuck with me. I love the lyrics and told a story of lost soul in some sense finally finding that one person that statisfies them. How many people can say and live that line?? Ha-HA..

    This is the song I chose to dance at my wedding. The words describe my feelings for my lover/husband.

    It's a great song. The last time I heard it was when my husband and I hanging out late one night drinking a beer at our neighbor's house and he decides to put this song on. It was so unscripted but so perfect. It felt great to hear it again under the moonlight with him again.

  • Sarah from Rome, PaThis song describes how I feel about the love of my life..
  • Brad from Long Island, NyThis was the song my wife and I chose to dance to at our wedding.
