lyrics

“Someone Like You” in open G

G C G G Bm G7 Am7 C D G D
Verse 1
G G Bm G7
Well if you don't know, to be safe that it's clear , if you've a lingering doubt, in the
Am7 C D G D
wake of my tears the best thing in my life, was to be loved by someone like you

Verse 2
D G Bm G7
It wasn't your choice, you had nowhere to turn, you were the cool winter rain ,
Am7 C D
on the bridges I burned...was it my dumb luck, or some beautiful fate to be loved
G D
by someone like you

Chorus
D C D
If I didn't tell you, if I didn't show you,
G C G G7
you need to know you are more than I ever deserved
C A7 D
wish I could give back all the time I stole away, it's what I regret ...to my last day

Verse 3
D G Bm G7 the wounds were too deep , they just never healed , whatever I lost,
Am7 C D G
I just tried not to feel, behind a brave face, I hid all the pain, I take the blame ,
D Dm
I take the blame
FLUTE SOLO OVER THE MELODY OF TWO VERSES
Chorus
D C D
If I didn't tell you, if I didn't show you,
G C G G7
you need to know you are more than I ever deserved
C A7 D
wish I could give back all the time I stole away, it's what I regret ...to my last day

Bridge
Em C7 Em A7
So twisted the road , that has been my life, it didn't turn out quite like they told me it might,
C D D
I don't understand why the good Lord up above would let me be loved … let me be loved
D
By someone like you ohh oooooh ooohh oohh Ooooh Ooooh Ooooh
G D G
By someone like you
