"Somebody Like You" is the seventh single recorded by In Real Life, released on May 10, 2019, through Hollywood Records.[1] It was produced by Mitchell Allan, who co-wrote it with Kara DioGuardi and Justin Jesso. Conor Michael Smith does not have a part in this single, explaining over an Instagram livestream was because he did not resonate as well as the rest of his bandmates did.[2]

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. The cover art was done by Thomas Crane,[3] and the lyric video was posted on May 23rd.

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 perceive.

Lyrics

Sergio Calderon
You get happy when it rains
You can stay away for days
And ignore the traffic lights

Chance Perez
You drink coffee 10 P.M.
You think caffeine is your friend
'Cause it gets you through the night

Drew Ramos
But I need something a little stronger
You're my whiskey, hold the water
You're the one that gets me high

Chance Perez
Yeah, you love me just to hate me
But I love you kinda crazy
'Cause it make me feel alive, oh-oh

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

Drew Ramos
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
Like you, like you, like you, like you
Like you, like you, like you, like you

Sergio Calderon
You can't hide the way you feel
Everything you say is real
Yeah, I love that you can't lie

Drew Ramos
You got me actin' like a child
When you dance, it makes me smile
You don't even have to try, oh

Chance Perez, 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

Drew Ramos, 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)

But I need something a little stronger
You're my whiskey, hold the water
You're the one that gets me high, oh, yeah

Chance Perez
Yeah, you love me just to hate me
But I love you kinda crazy
'Cause it make me feel alive

Drew Ramos
Oh-oh

Chance Perez, Drew Ramos, Sergio Calderon
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)

What you do to my body (You ain't got nobody)
You give like you got nothing to lose
