"Someone like You" is a song by English recording artist Adele. It was written by Adele and Dan Wilson for her second studio album 21. The song was inspired by a broken relationship, and lyrically it speaks of Adele coming to terms with it. XL Recordings released the song as the second single from the album on 24 January 2011 in the United Kingdom and on 9 August 2011 in the United States. Accompanied only by a piano in the song (played by co-writer Wilson), Adele sings about the end of the relationship with her ex-boyfriend. The song received universal critical acclaim from music critics who chose the song as a highlight of the album and praised the lyrics, its simple sound and Adele's vocal performance.[1]

Cimorelli covered this song and posted it on YouTube on February 12, 2012.

Lyrics

Amy:
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

Lauren with background vocals from Cimorelli:
Old friend
Why are you so shy?
Ain't like you to hold back
Or hide from the light

Katherine with background vocals from Cimorelli:
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

Lisa:
Never mind I'll find
Lisa with Cimorelli:
Someone like you
Lisa:
I wish nothing but the best
Lisa with Cimorelli:
For you too
Lisa with background vocals from Cimorelli:
Don't forget me, I beg
I'll remember you said
Lisa with Cimorelli:
Sometimes it lasts in love
Lisa with background vocals from Cimorelli:
But sometimes it hurts instead
Lisa with Cimorelli:
Sometimes it lasts in love
Lisa with background vocals from Cimorelli:
But sometimes it hurts instead

Christina:
You know how the time flies
Only yesterday was the
Christina with Cimorelli:
Time of our lives
Christina:
We were born and raised
In a summer haze
Bound by the surprise
Christina with Cimorelli:
Of our glory days

Dani with background vocals from Cimorelli:
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

Lisa with Cimorelli:
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 said
Sometimes it lasts in love
Lisa with background vocals from Cimorelli:
But sometimes it hurts instead
Lisa with Cimorelli:
Sometimes it lasts in love
Lisa with background vocals from Cimorelli:
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 said
Sometimes it lasts in love

But sometimes it hurts instead

Sometimes it lasts in love
