Like Someone in Love
Björk Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Lately
I find myself out gazing at stars
Hearing guitars
Like someone in love

Sometimes the things I do astound me
Mostly whenever you're around me
Lately
I seem to walk as though I have wings
Bump into things
Like someone in love
Each time I look at you, I'm limp as a glove
And feeling like someone in love

Sometimes the things I do astound me
Mostly whenever you're around me

Lately
I seem to walk as though I have wings
Bump into things
Like someone in love

Each time I look at you, I'm limp as a glove
And feeling like someone in love




Like someone in love
Like someone in love

"Like Someone in Love,” composed in 1944 by Jimmy Van Heusen, with lyrics by Johnny Burke, has been covered more times than one can count. It lends itself to popular standard, jazz, etc., and after 75 years, shows no sign of being forgotten.
