Someone Like You

The best songs come from personal experiences. Adele has been through her fair share of things and has been thrown into the limelight because of her unique sound, songs and overall emotional connection.  On her latest album (21) she has a song titled “Someone Like You” (link to her in-home performance of it) which encompasses her past relationship.
While I absolutely love and adore Adele as well as this song, I have an issue with it for my own personal life. I don’t want someone who is the same. I don’t want to go through everything again. I don’t want him. So when I sing that line of the song I change it. There is no “someone like you” rather it is “someone better than you”. Also, that relationship is over for me. It doesn’t continue in my mind, heart or soul.

There was a day not too long ago which was filled with my version of this song. I had been informed that he had moved on and was in a new relationship with a girl even younger than I. Ironically this relationship became public knowledge the same day as my “Break Up Competition” post (not when I heard about it though). How did I handle learning about the relationship? It took me a bit, but I got to the point where I truly meant it when I sang along with Adele on lines such as “I wish nothing but the best for you”.

No matter how much he hurt, used or played with me and my heart…

  1. Someone Like You is one of my favorite songs on Adele’s album. I don’t change the words when I sing along because for me, the song encompasses moving on because things didn’t work out with one person. In my last relationship, everything was perfect but we decided to part ways because of the timing and the distance. So I do hope to find someone like him in the future. Not every relationship ends because someone did something wrong, sometimes the world just doesn’t want you to be with someone at that time. I feel like I’m rambling, but I hope you get my point. Nice post!

    • I definitely understand where you’re coming from – which is why I made sure to add in that it is in my own personal life I have to change it. There are thousands out there who have the same feelings as you do, I just couldn’t consider myself in that group. Each relationship ends for different reasons, you are right. I hope that you do find the man who will make you happy and will stand by your side until the very end. Best of luck to you on your own journey!

  2. I couldn’t agree more. I think post breakup, we all get so consumed by the what-ifs and could’ve beens that we stop ourselves from doing what we’re supposed to do, and that is making time for ME time. I think once we start caring and loving ourselves can we ultimately let go of a failed relationship and be truly happy for their new advances because we are in our own. 🙂 great blog!

    • Thanks! Essentially that’s what I’m working on – moving on in my own life and chronicling the experiences and emotions for all to follow if they so choose. We all have a journey in front of us just waiting to be explored. What we have to choose to do is take the step, put ourselves out there and be willing to let life take us for a ride. Thanks for commenting!! 🙂
