Someone Like You
By ChelseyyVengeance

 




I heard that you're settled down,
That you found a girl and you're married now,
I heard that your dreams came true
Guess she gave you things I didn't give to you
Old friend, why you so shy?
Ain't like you to hold back, or hide from the light

I hate to turn up out of the blue, uninvited
But I couldn't stay away, I couldn't fight it
I had hoped you see my face and that you'd be reminded
That for me, it's isn't over

Nevermind I'll find, someone like you
I wish nothing but the best for you too
Don't forget me, I beg
I remember you said:
Sometimes it lasts in love, but sometimes it hurts instead
Sometimes it lasts in love, but sometimes it hurts instead, yeah

You'd know how the, time flies
Only yesterday, was the time of our lives
We were born and raised,
In a summery haze
Bound by the surprise of our glory days

I hate to turn up out of the blue, uninvited
But I couldn't stay away, I couldn't fight it
I had hoped you see my face and that you'd be reminded
That for me, it's isn't over


Nevermind I'll find, someone like you
I wish nothing but the best for you too
Don't forget me, I beg
I remember you said:
Sometimes it lasts in love, but sometimes it hurts instead, yeah

Nothing compares, no worries or cares
Regrets and mistakes they're memories made
Who would have known how, bittersweet this would taste?

Nevermind I'll find, someone like you
I wish nothing but the best, for you too
Don't forget me, I beg
I remember you said:
Sometimes it lasts in love, but sometimes it hurts instead

Nevermind I'll find, someone like you
I wish nothing but the best, for you too
Don't forget me, I beg
I remember you said:
Sometimes it lasts in love, but sometimes it hurts instead
Sometimes it lasts in love, but sometimes it hurts instead,
Yeah, yeah









She's always been the most hypnotising person to me, ever since we were kids and she threw a baseball at my head. She was my first everything, my first kiss, my first girlfriend, my first love, my only love if I'm being honest. She's still my best friend, she always will be, which is why right now is possibly the hardest day of my life, I didn't do the right thing, not the right thing for me anyway….

Maybe I should fill you in a little more, I'm Zachary Baker, rhythm guitarist for Avenged Sevenfold, she's Chelsey Levitt, the girl that's held my heart in the palm of her hand since I was 4 years old. We were inseparable right up until the point I cheated on her, I had it all worked out in my head that I was a rock star, therefore I could have anything I wanted, anyone I wanted and she'd still be there.

Fast forward a year, and I couldn't have been further from the truth, here I am now, watching her kiss him the way she used to kiss me, her eyes sparkling with the words that roll off his tongue, his hands holding her waist where mine used to fit perfectly, her hands locked around his neck as
he kissed those full lips hungrily, a smile showing on her face causing him to smirk lightly when he pulls away, she loves him and I know he loves her, better than I ever could. I notice something unexpected when her hands move from his neck, her left hand, it has something, a ring on her finger, he's giving her everything I couldn't, everything I should have.

Coming back here might have been a mistake, but I need to see her before I end every hope of her being mine once again, I just had to see for myself that she was no longer mine, everyone had told me she deserved so much more, so much better, and they were right, I guess now she found it and there was nothing I could do, nothing I had the right to do. I had her, and I destroyed that in a single night. I'll never forget that look in her eyes when she found out, I couldn't lie to her anymore so I told her everything, not that she had needed it, she knew me too well, she knew everything about me, flaws and all. To watch her leave with her bags, her eyes refusing to meet mine as she passed me in the hallway tore me apart, but I deserved every ounce of pain I felt.

See the thing is, that girl I cheated on her with, well I ended up moving her into the house I shared with Chels, not in those terms exactly, since I had always envisioned spending the rest of my life with Chels, but here I am now, greedily watching everything I wanted love someone else, he was a good guy, apparently she met him at work a few months after we split, they've only been a couple for less than a year, that's why I had to come and see for myself. We didn't speak for months after she left; I missed her beyond belief, her voice, the small things she did that made me the happiest man alive.

The only reason we spoke again was because Jimmy forced us into the same room, me the willing one as she refused to even hear my name until he asked her to do it for him. A shrug of her shoulders followed by a glance in my direction signalled she would at least not leave yet.

“Hey.”

“Hey.”

“How have you been?”

“Considering? Yeah, great.”

“Look, I know you've never been fond of apologies, but I'm so sorry, I never meant to hurt you, I never meant for any of this to happen.”

“Yet you still did it Zee, I don't know why, but you did, after everything we did together, after everything I did for you, my feelings were the last thing on your mind when some slut offered herself to you on a plate. Well I'm sorry Zee, I'm sorry I wasn't enough for you. I hope you'll be happy with whoever she is. Just remember one thing, I loved you more than anything in the world, and you threw that away.” She spat, her eyes finally meeting mine for the first time in months.

I merely took every bitter word she said, her eyes filling with tears as she leaned back against the wall, screwing her eyes closed tight as she fought back the tears.

“I hope one day I can look at you and not see the hate in your eyes, knowing you hate me tears me apart.” I whispered.

“I don't hate you; I just don't like what you've become. You're not the Zack I know, you're not that guy who used to kiss my knee when I fell over, the guy that used to threaten any guy that even looked at me. You're not the Zack I used to call my best friend. You're not the Zack I loved.”

“Loved…”

“What?”

“You said loved, I'm not the Zack you loved?”

“No, you're not.”

“You used it in a past tense, you don't love me anymore.”

“A part of me will always love you, but I don't know you anymore, I can't love someone I don't know. That's the worst apart about all this, I didn't just lose my lover, I lost my best friend, I lost the person who made me feel safe. Now I need to find someone who can make me feel that way again.”

“I'm sorry.”

That was the last conversation we had, almost 7 months ago, I haven't seen her since, not until today. She moved out of Huntington, got a job in New Jersey as an activities coordinator, he was the American part time guy she worked with on a few of her projects, Eddie I think they said his name was. She had found someone who made her feel safe, someone had healed the heart I had broken, yet I felt nothing but anger towards him as I watched his hands reach out for hers, his eyes soft as he got lost in those pools of dark chocolate, the small smile playing on his lips as she spoke softly into his ear, her hands resting on his chest as she stood on her tip toes to kiss him. That smile I used to get greeting him warmly as he pecked her nose.

She was gone, she wasn't mine anymore.

Now I had to find someone who could be like her, someone who could repair the heart I broke……


I've been roaming around always looking down, at all I see
Painted faces fill the places I can't reach
You know that I could use somebody
You know that I could use somebody
Someone like you and all you know and how you speak
Countless lovers undercover of the street

You know that I could use somebody
You know that I could use somebody
Someone like you!

Off in the night
While you live it up, I'm off to sleep
Waging wars to shape the poet and the beat
I hope it's gonna make you notice
I hope it's gonna make you notice
Someone like me!

Someone like me!
Someone like me!
Somebody

Someone like you
Somebody
Someone like you
Somebody
Someone like you
Somebody

I've been roaming around always looking down
At all I see…..
