"Love Somebody Like you" as written by and John/urban Shanks....
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, ooo, yeah,
Hey I want to love ya baby,
Oh oh, oh oh

Yea 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

    General Commenthe wrote this song for his ex laura. he claimed it's so hard to sing it because it's an upbeat tune that's happy but for him it's very sad to perform it.

    General Commentkeith urban quote from his bio...keithurbanmates.net
    "What I like too about that is that you can read into the double meaning of the line, "I want to love somebody like you.' At the time I wrote it, I really had people who loved me and I wanted to love myself like they did. So, 'I want to love somebody like you' means I want to love somebody the way you love somebody. It took on a stronger meaning."

    General Commenti have the exact opposite experience. if i had met someone exactly like you, i would never have given it a chance. there just was something about you...
