Intro: A E Gbm D

Verse:
  A                E
I heard that you're settled down
        Gbm
That you found a girl
          D
And you're married now

  A              E
I heard that your dreams came true
         Gbm
Guess she gave you things
        D
I didn't give to you

   A                   E
Old friend why are you so shy
        Gbm
It ain't like you to hold back
  D
Or hide from life

Bridge:
  E                          Gbm                 D
I hate to turn up out of the blue uninvited but

I couldn't stay away I couldn't fight it
    E
I'd hoped you'd see my face
    Gbm                             D           Dmaj7  D
And that you'd be reminded that for me it isn't over

Chorus:
A                E                 Gbm D
Never mind, I'll find someone like you
       A               E        Gbm D
I wish nothing but the best for you too
      A           E        Gbm        D
Don't forget me I beg I re-member you said
             A                 E                     Gbm    D
Sometimes it lasts in love but sometimes it hurts in-stead
             A                 E                     Gbm   D
Sometimes it lasts in love but sometimes it hurts instead, yeah

Verse:
A              E
 You'd know how time flies
    Gbm
Only yesterday
       D
was the time of our lives

       A
We were born and raised
    E
In a summer haze
     Gbm                     D
Bound by the surprise of our glory days

Bridge:
  E                          Gbm                 D
I hate to turn up out of the blue uninvited but
D
I couldn't stay away I couldn't fight it
    E
I'd hoped you'd see my face
    Gbm                             D           Dmaj7  D
And that you'd be reminded that for me it isn't over

Chorus:
A                E                 Gbm D
Never mind, I'll find someone like you
       A               E        Gbm D
I wish nothing but the best for you too
      A           E        Gbm        D
Don't forget me I beg I re-member you said
             A                 E                     Gbm    D
Sometimes it lasts in love but sometimes it hurts in-stead, yeah

Interlude:
E
Nothing compares no worries or cares
Gbm
Regrets and mistakes their memories make
D
 Who would have known how
       Bm    Dbm        D
Bitter-sweet this would taste

Chorus:
A              E                  Gbm D
Never mind I’ll find someone like you
       A               E        Gbm D
I wish nothing but the best for you too
      A           E        Gbm        D
Don't forget me I beg I re-member you said
             A                 E                     Gbm    D
Sometimes it lasts in love but sometimes it hurts in-stead

Chorus / Outro:
A              E                  Gbm D
Never mind I’ll find someone like you
       A               E        Gbm D
I wish nothing but the best for you too
      A           E        Gbm        D
Don't forget me I beg I re-member you said
             A                 E                     Gbm    D
Sometimes it lasts in love but sometimes it hurts in-stead
             A                 E                     Gbm    D
Sometimes it lasts in love but sometimes it hurts in-stead
             A                 E                     Gbm    D
Sometimes it lasts in love but sometimes it hurts instead    

Most of 21’s lyrics refer to Adele working through the ending of a relationship including this song. She recalled to The Daily Telegraph; “When I did ‘Someone Like You’ live on Jools Holland, I got so upset wondering and hoping and wishing that my ex would be watching it, I went back to my dressing room and sobbed. Making a record is like standing in the middle of Trafalgar Square naked, you let everyone see your good bits and bad bits. I don’t know what possesses me to do that, but I’m not good at anything else.” -Source Someone Like You Songfacts-.
