Song: Someone Like You

Another wonderful song from Adele

Played on Jools Holland 'Later' November 2010
prior to its release on the '21' album in 2011.



    

That Jools performance was accompanied by piano, but an arpeggiated acoustic
guitar works beautifully with the song too.

This song is best picked rather than strummed, just playing simple patterns on the basic 
chords. I have added suggestions for the picking pattern at the bottom of the tab.

Yeah Yeah


-----------------------------------------


I hope the following will assist!

OK. The numbers on the strings should relate to which finger to use -

't' is thumb, 1,2,3 are 1st, 2nd, 3rd fingers respectively!

So the D chord (xx0232) picked like this

E-------------------|
B-----2-------2-----|
G---1---1---1---1---|
D-t-------t---------|t...... etc
A-------------------|
E-------------------|


The A chord (x02220) like this! nb finger '3' can be left out or played simultaneously with '2'!

E---------------------------|
B-------3-----------3-------|
G-----2---2-------2---2-----|
D---1-------1---1-------1---|
A-t-----------t-------------|t....etc
E---------------------------|

...and so on for the other chords.

Luckily for us all, although Adele is magnificent, she plays guitar in a quite simple style!


-----------------------------------------


I hope I've done it justice!

View Just Lyrics...

I heard, that you're settled down
That you found a girl and you're, married now

I heard, that you're dreams came true
Guess she gave you things
I didn't give to you

Old friend, why are you so shy
Ain't like you to hold back
Or hide from the light

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 be reminded that for me it isn't over

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 say
Sometimes it lasts in love
But sometimes it hurts instead
Sometimes it lasts in love
But sometimes it hurts instead yeah

You know how the time flies
Only yesterday it was the time of our lives
We were born and raised
In a summer haze bound by the surprise
Of our glory days

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

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 say
Sometimes it lasts in love but sometimes it hurts instead

Nothing compares no worries or cares
Regrets and mistakes their memories made
Who would have known how bittersweet
This would taste

Never mind I'll find someone like you
I wish nothing but the best for you
Don't forget me I beg, I'll remember you say
Sometimes it lasts in love 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 say
Sometimes it lasts in love but sometimes it hurts instead

Sometimes it lasts in love but sometimes it hurts instead
