    Somebody That I Used To Know - lyrics

    Now and then I think of when we were together
    Like when you said you felt so happy you could die
    Told myself that you were right for me
    But felt so lonely in your company
    But that was love and it's an ache I still remember

    You can get addicted to a certain kind of sadness
    Like resignation to the end
    Always the end
    So when we found that we could not make sense
    Well you said that we would still be friends
    But I'll admit that I was glad that it was over

    But you didn't have to cut me off
    Make out like it never happened
    And that we were nothing
    And I don't even need your love
    But you treat me like a stranger
    And that feels so rough
    You didn't have to stoop so low
    Have your friends collect your records
    And then change your number
    I guess that I don't need that though
    Now you're just somebody that I used to know

    Now and then I think of all the times you screwed me over
    But had me believing it was always something that I'd done
    And I don't wanna live that way
    Reading into every word you say
    You said that you could let it go
    And I wouldn't catch you hung up on somebody that you used to know...

    But you didn't have to cut me off
    Make out like it never happened
    And that we were nothing
    And I don't even need your love
    But you treat me like a stranger
    And that feels so rough
    You didn't have to stoop so low
    Have your friends collect your records
    And then change your number
    I guess that I don't need that though
    Now you're just somebody that I used to know

    I used to know
    That I used to know

    Somebody...

    Such a great song given so much bad connotation from failed relationships. People have that person that they can relate this song to. It ain't pretty. They might hate it when this song comes on, even many years later.... it's not about the song.. That is what makes a great song.
