Somebody That I Used To Know

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 want to 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 . . .

Originally sung by Gotye and covered by this amazing one instrument band called Walk of the Earth. The lyrics felt too close too home: getting involved with someone who had hang ups from a previous relationship then being completely cut off. Doesn't make sense (I mean seriously, the cutting off part was supposedly something left for me to do. Tssss.) but we all have to deal with bullshit at some point.

Things will get better soon. And the next time, I hope and pray, I'll go find a guy whose brain is not in the same place as his balls.
