GOTYE


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
I 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 kinda 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 it like it never happened and that we were nothing
I don't even need your love, but you treat me like a stranger
And that feels so rough

No, you didn't have to stoop so low
Have your friends collect your records
And then change your number
Guess that I don't need that though
Now you're just somebody that I used to know

Now you're just somebody that I used to know
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 believin it was always something that I'd done

But 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-oh-oh

But you didn't have cut me off
Make it like it never happened and that we were nothing (oh)
I don't even need your love, but you treat me like a stranger
and that feels so rough

(oh)

No, you didn't have to stoop so low
Have your friends collect you records
And then change your number (oh)
Guess that I don't need that though
Now you're just somebody that I used to know

Somebody that I used to know
Somebody (now your just somebody that I used to know)
That I used to know
Somebody that I used to know
Somebody (somebody) (now your just somebody that I used to know)
That I used to know

I used to know
That I used to know
I used to know
Somebody

A relationship ends because it just doesn't work. He knows it wont work and accepts it, but is in pain becuase her way of coaping is just acting like it never happened and cutting him out of her life.

Romance wasn't working out; ended. Dude was upset at how easily he was dropped; erased, as if he didn't matter at all when she said they would be friends. Hurt by this he erases her as she erased him.

To me this song means that starting over after a break-up is never easy and old memories don't go away. Lovers are people and when feelings get hurt emotions take control and rational thoughts escape

even i have had the same experience. i mean one has to really respect for for some1 who has been so caring n meaningful in the past. Later just pretending lik a stranger is really irritating and crap.

This is a good song. It's just the way a girl leaves the guy and leaves him heartbroken. The way it was with me when I had my first boyfriend he left me by cheating on two other girls. Why? He didn't really like me.

one of the most unique song in this year...the delivery of melodic voice and weird sound gave justice to the lyrics....
