"Someone Like You" as written by and Bernard (gb 2)/hook Sumner....
This can't be real
My heart is burning
How does it feel ?
Well, let's say I'm learning
It had to come
The ship has landed
It's time to run
The crew are stranded

We're having the time of our lives
We're lost in a cruel paradise

Someone like you could make me feel like I used to do
Return my heart, yeah
Make it real like it was at the start
Someone like you, someone like you, yeah

You're everything to me:
The sweetest symphony
All that I try to be
You are my harmony
I guess what I mean to say
Is you keep the wolves at bay
We're children on holiday
Here comes the cloud

We're having the time of our lives
We're lost in a cruel paradise

Someone like you could make me feel like I used to do
Return my heart, yeah
Make it real like it was at the start
Someone like you, yeah, someone like you, yeah

    General CommentIt's about meeting someone for the first time and falling deeply in this true love with them .. not sure how but you're sure this person can heal all wounds caused by past relationships ... you've met the one.. and it's painful almost because they are so graceful .. you're scared to let go of your old ideas of love for this new order but you MUST to feel it fully

    General Commenti can't believe how few posts new order has! this album is so good and hardly anybody has said anything about it. Anyways, I think that this song is about someone finding a new love and dropping everything for them and just going with them wherever they go. My favorite part is "We're having the time of our lives, We're lost in a cruel paradise" great song, probably my favorite on the album.

    General Commentto me this means when a person is in their perfect place of bliss with someone they love in a place of paradise in their own minds

    My InterpretationI think it's about rediscovering love - the good, the bad, the innocence and the inevitable comparisons (with previous relationships) that it brings.

    The "honeymoon" phase as it's known.
