SOMEONE LIKE YOU
Emmylou Harris


(Bob McDill/Dickey Lee)

Others have touched me
Soft in the night
Others have kissed me
And held me tight
Good times and lovers
Yes, I've had a few
But I was just waiting
For someone like you

I have been lonely
And I have been loved
I've grown used to losing
What I'm fondest of
I can see clearly now
My whole life through
I was just waiting
For someone like you

But I never wasted
A minute of my time
Every road I ever took
Led me to your side

No, I never wasted
A minute of my time
Every road I ever took
Led me to your side

Don't it seem funny, love
That I never knew
I was just waiting
For someone like you
I was just waiting
I was just waiting
For someone like you
