    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 be 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 it was over

    But you didn't have to cut me off
    Make out like it never happened
    And that we were nothing
    Now I don't even need your love
    But you treat me like a stranger
    And I feel so rough
    No, 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 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 believing 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

    But you didn't have to cut me off
    Make out like it never happened
    And that we were nothing
    Now I don't even need your love
    But you treat me like a stranger
    And I feel so rough
    No, 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

    Somebody (I used to know)
    Now you're just somebody that I used to know
    Somebody (I used to know)
    Now you're just somebody that I used to know
    I used to know
    That I used to know
    I used to know

    Somebody

      My favourite Gotye song. Too bad the radio edit omits one part of his verse.

      This song reminds me of my first naughty girl friend, way back then. She was the only person that you call "love" i was into. Sine then, i gave up on "love" or any other girls. No other girls were like her and no girl will be like her. I know there's one that i can meet someday. Just need a girl, who acts like her own self.. It's hard to find one..if theres none out there, that's fine..

      Have my interest in Anonymous anyways.

      Achilles.

      My sister used to listen that song, but now she doesn't do it anymore
      And I'm very grateful. Listening many times can make you hate the thing
