"Somebody Like You" is the seventh single recorded by In Real Life released on May 10, 2019, through Hollywood Records.[1]

Background

On May 6th, the band made a post over their official band account, mentioning the dropping of a song at the end of the week. There were no teasers or performances of the song prior to its official release, unexpectedly announced. Lyrically the song is about falling in love with someone who seems to have quirks that, in your mind, make them unique and perfect despite what others percieve.

Lyrics

[Verse 1: Sergio Calderon and Chance Perez]
You get happy when it rains
You can stay away for days
And ignore the traffic lights
You drink coffee 10 P.M
You think caffeine is your friend
'Cause it gets you through the night

[Verse 2: Drew Ramos and Chance Perez]
But I need something a little stronger
You're my whiskey, hold the water
You're the one that gets me high
Yeah, you love me just to hate me
But I love you kinda crazy
'Cause it make me feel alive, oh-oh

[Pre-Chorus: Sergio Calderon and Drew Ramos]
There ain't nobody like you
Ain't you ain't like nobody
No, you don't like nobody like you
That's why I like you baby
There ain't nobody like you
What you do to my body
You give like you got nothing to lose
I think I need somebody

[Chorus: Drew Ramos]
Like you, like you, like you, like you
Like you, like you, like you, like you

[Verse 2: Sergio Calderon and Drew Ramos]
You can't hide the way you feel
Everything you say is real
Yeah, I love that you can't lie
You got me actin' like a child
When you dance, it makes me smile
You don't even have to try, oh

[Pre-Chorus: Chance Perez and Sergio Calderon]
There ain't nobody like you
Ain't you ain't like nobody
No, you don't like nobody like you
That's why I like you baby (I think I need you)
There ain't nobody like you
What you do to my body
You give like you got nothing to lose
I think I need somebody

[Chorus: Drew Ramos and Chance Perez]
Like you, like you
Like you (I need somebody like you)
Like you (I need somebody like you)
Like you, like you
Like you (I need somebody like you)
Like you (I need somebody like you)

[Bridge: Brady Tutton and Chance Perez]
But I need something a little stronger
You're my whiskey, hold the water
You're the one that gets me high, oh, yeah
Yeah, you love me just to hate me
But I love you kinda crazy
'Cause it make me feel alive
Oh-oh

[Pre-Chorus: Chance Perez and All]
There ain't nobody like you (yeah, yeah)
Ain't you ain't like nobody (no you ain’t like no one)
No, you don't like nobody like you (yeah, yeah)
That's why I like you baby (yeah)
There ain't nobody like you
What you do to my body (you ain’t got nobody)
You give like you got nothing to lose
I think I need somebody

[Outro: Drew and Chance Perez]
Like you, like you, like you
Like you (I need somebody like you)
Like you (I need somebody like you)
Like you (like you)
Like you (like you)
Like you (I need somebody like you)
Like you (I need somebody like you)
Woo-ooh, yeah, yeah, yeah
Woo-ooh, yeah, yeah, yeah
