Somebody Like You
Keith Urban Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

There's a new wind blowing like I've never known
I'm breathing deeper than I've even done
And it sure feels good to finally feel the way I do
And I want to love somebody, love somebody like you

And I let go of all my lonely yesterdays
I've forgiven myself for the mistakes I've made
Now there's just one thing the only thing I want to do
I want to love somebody, love somebody like you

Yeah, I want to feel the sunshine
Shining down on me and you
When you put your arms around me
You let me know there's nothing in this world I can't do

I used to run in circles going nowhere fast
I'd take one step forward and took two steps back
I couldn't walk a straight line even if I wanted to
I want to love somebody, love somebody like you

Oh, here we go now, ooh, yeah
Hey, I want to love ya, baby
Oh oh, oh oh

Yeah, I want to feel the sunshine
Shining down on me and you
When you put your arms around me
Well baby there ain't nothing in this world I can't do

Sometime it's hard for me to understand
But your teaching me to be a better man
I don't want to take this life for granted like I used to do, no no
I want to love somebody, love somebody like you

I'm ready to love somebody, love somebody like you
I want to love somebody, love somebody like you

Hey I want to love ya baby, ah uh

I want to be the man in the middle of the night shining like it's true
I wanna to be the man that you run to whenever I call on you
When everything that loved someone finally found it's way
I wanna be a better man, I can see it in you yeah

Hey I want to love you baby





Ah ah yeah, na na na na na
