Gotye feat. Kimbra – Somebody That I Used to Know

 

My Comments:

“Somebody That I Used To Know” is Belgian-Australian singer Gotye’s most successful single and one of the most successful singles internationally. This is one of those songs that I initially didn’t really like, but grew on me to become one of my favorites. I hope you like it too.

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 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-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

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

  1. Miss A, Thank you for introducing me to fabulous music. I don’t get the video, but I feel this tune.

  2. I discovered this song via that YouTube cover where the 5 of them play the same guitar.

    I think it’s this one:

    I only heard the original a few weeks ago. It IS one of those songs you don’t get at first, but it stays with you for a long time.

  3. Mira,

    I like that cover, thanks! The song is just so great…I can’t believe I used to ignore it before. I think it’s the beginning of it and the slowness of it; it kind of reminds me of Adele’s “Rumor Has It” which I think is a pretty terrible song, for her.

  4. Sherry,

    I skipped over your response, somehow.

    But you’re welcome. 🙂
    I never watch the video, I just listen to the music. Sometimes when I really like a song I never watch the video. Since I have a video pictured in my mind before I see one, I don’t want the actual video to ruin it. Lol.
