Someone Like You Lyrics
That you found a girl and you're, married now
I heard, that you're dreams came true
I guess she gave you things
I didn't give to you
Old friend, why are you so shy
Ain't like you to hold back
Although they have gone their separate ways, have both moved on & he is clearly happy, there is a huge part of her that wants to try again. She doesnt want him to forget her either, but it would be an insult to the memories that they once shared.
She loves him enough to want him to be happy though, even if it means that it is not with her & it kills her forever knowing this.

I think she talking about a past relationship she cant close and in her heart is not 'over' and 'turns up' hoping to may rekindle it but he is settled down with someone else and she wishes him all the best although her heart is broken and hopes she will meet someone else the same and as lovely as he was

I think she's talking about a past relationship,
how she still had feelings for him but he moved on, and she still wants him,then she say's never mind ill find someone like you,,so she knows shes gonna find someone like him,,she just doesn't want him to forget her,,and how sometimes love will last but sometimes it just causes hurt when one person is still in love someone who doesn't love them the same way.

The person they loved has settled down, has a new partner and everything. She's wishing them the best to be civil, and shes hoping she'd find someone like them. I think she's really broken hearted, and hurt.

I think it's about how you and an ex partner may be best friends but you just don't work as a couple. You always have some love towards them but there is still some hurt feelings. You still 'wish nothing but the best' because you still love them and want them to succeed. Well that's my interpretation.

She's in my view singing about a broken relationship that either they tried to mend or maybe should have tried harder and didn't and she regrets now yet has moved on but not gotten over it.
I think she's trying to say sometimes the love goes on forever together or it just hurts forever for one person, but that's the problem with having one person on a pedestal.
