Someone Just Like You

from by Amy Gordon

about

A song about not realizing what you had until it's too late and then trying to find that again.

lyrics

Verse 1
I’ve been sitting in my room waiting for the phone to ring
Or the sky to fall or anything,
Besides this emptiness that I’ve been feeling
Ever since we said goodbye.

And I’m ready for the next phase of my life to start
And I’m ready for the fallout if it all falls apart.
And I’m ready to continue with someone just like (you)

Chorus
You were the only one who really understood me
Or ever even tried
And you were the only one who
Ever gave me the time of day
And you were the only one
Who I ever let slip away.
And I pray I find someone just like you again.

Verse 2
I’ve been staring at a screen for the past three hours
Looking at old emails and pictures of ours
Trying to pinpoint when I became a coward
And why I said goodbye.

And I don’t know why I didn’t count my blessing when they were mine
And I don’t know why I didn’t realize at the time
And I’m ready to start new but with someone just like (you)
