Somebody that I Used to Know
04/27/12 at 08:31 PM by .invisible ink.


It's funny, I was having a fairly decent day all told considering I just gave my notice that I'll be leaving my job to take another one but my friend posted this on her facebook. I had been hearing about this song a lot lately but never actually heard it until just now. I guess I'm still having a fairly decent day/night but this song made me feel shitty because I guess it kinda hits a nerve. Life is really weird right now. I am such a fucking mess. One day I'm happy, the next I'm miserable, and then you get a day like today where it's just so fucking surreal it's like it didn't really even happen. I don't even feel like I'm the same person I was a month ago and that is not a good thing. I know it will all get better soon but right now it's chaos. I need certainty and stability and routine. It's so empty and lonely and weird to not spend nearly every waking moment connected to another person in some way. It only feels good a little bit. It feels mostly bad though.


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
