Meaning of Someone like You Lyrics by Adele

Have you heard the song "Someone like you"? I bet you have. English singer and songwriter Adele has sung it. It is the song for her 2nd studio album 21 that was released in 2011 in both UK as well as in US. Adele, along with Dan Wilson has written the song. The lyrics of the song were just superb and her vocal performance in association with only the sound of piano that was played by Wilson was just mind-blowing. The music critics have provided the song with positive reviews. This song was the spotlight of her album and the simple sound was also highly praised. After its release, Someone Like You topped the charts in Italy, Ireland, Australia, France, New Zealand, and Switzerland. But what was the reason for such huge popularity of this song as well as the singer? Well! It is the meaning of the song that touched the soul of the listeners. Even after more than one year it is still doing the same thing.

If you listen to the lyrics, you will understand that this song is based on the broken relationship of Adele and her attempts to accept it. According to the singer, she started to compose this song when she had broken up with her boyfriend after one and a half years of the relationship. Then she learned that he had found out another woman in his life and they got engaged just right after their split.  So what is the meaning behind this powerful song?

It is basically a story of two people who are madly in love with each other and the girl plans to marry him. But things don’t work out between them, which lead to the end of this relation. After a while the girl gets to know that her ex-lover got engaged to someone else and has got married. He is not talking to her like he used to in the past. Though the man has completely forgotten her, she has not. She thinks of him frequently and wants to see and ask if he is happy with his present life. She still thinks that her ex-boyfriend possibly thinks about her. That is why she goes to visit him. But there is nothing to ask since she can see that her ex-lover is content in is married life. And there is no doubt that he has completely forgotten her. This is when she tells herself that she will find someone better or “someone like you” for herself. The girl (Adele) wishes him the best in life and this is the first time she accepts her loss and moves ahead in her life.  Now she tries to find love once again and settle down and live happily ever after.

In the end Adele finds true love with another man and they are happy together. What do you think?


"Nevermind, I'll find someone like you, I wish nothing but the best for you."
