Song 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
And 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
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
And 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
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

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

When I first heard this song, I thought that is must have been a few years old as it seems to have an earlier feel to it like Peter Gabriel and such. (Or to me it does).

And it is that unique, playful melody but meaningful lyrics that hooked me into it. I love Gotye's and Kimbra's voices together. I think this will always be a favourite song of mine.

I like Walk of the Earths version better because of the guitar sounds a bit better then xylophone if you ask me. Otherwise its a nice song

‎** LOVE iS a Virtue. **

According to Einstein, he taught himself to play by "ever practicing systematically," adding that "LOVE iS a better teacher than a sense of duty."

so close... "But that was l0vE and it's an ache I still remember"

Definitely a (will be) memorable song on my list.

I like it =) its hard to even hear his voice during his verse when listening to it in a public place where there is noise. I like Kimbra's vocals in it too, although at first I was surprised because she sounds so much like Katy Perry in the song.
