Song- "Somebody that I used to know" by Gotye, featuring Kimbra

[Gotye:]
_ _ _ and _ _ _ _ I think of when we were _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _
Like when you said you felt so _ _ _ _ _ you _ _ _ _ _ / _ _ _
Told myself that you were _ _ _ _ _ for _ _
But felt so lonely in your _ _ _ _ _ _ _
But that was love and it's an ache I still remember

You can get _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ to a _ _ _ _ _ _ _ / _ _ _ _ of _ _ _ _ _ _ _
Like resignation to the end, always the end
So when we found that we could not make sense
Well you said that we would _ _ _ _ _ /_ _ / _ _ _ _ _ _ _
But I'll admit that I was glad that it was over

But you didn't have to _ _ _ / _ _ / _ _ _
Make out like it never happened and that _ _ / _ _ _ _ / _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _
And I don't even _ _ _ _ /_ _ _ _ / _ _ _ _
But you treat me like a _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ and that feels so _ _ _ _ _
No you didn't have to _ _ _ _ _ so _ _ _
Have your friends _ _ _ _ _ _ _ your _ _ _ _ _ _ _ and then _ _ _ _ _ _ / your _ _ _ _ _ _
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

[Kimbra:]
Now and then I think of all the times _ _ _ / _ _ _ _ _ _ _ / _ _ / _ _ _ _
But had me believing it was always _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ that _ ‘ _ / _ _ _ _
And I don't wanna _ _ _ _ that _ _ _
_ _ _ _ _ _ _ / _ _ _ _ every word you say
You said that you could _ _ _ it _ _
And I wouldn't catch you _ _ _ _ / _ _ / _ _ somebody that you used to know

[Gotye:]
But you didn't have to _ _ _ / _ _ / _ _ _
Make out like it never happened and that _ _ / _ _ _ _ / _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _
And I don't even _ _ _ _ / _ _ _ _ / _ _ _ _
But you treat me like a _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ and that feels so _ _ _ _ _
No you didn't have to _ _ _ _ _ so _ _ _
Have your friends _ _ _ _ _ _ _ your _ _ _ _ _ _ _ and then _ _ _ _ _ _ your _ _ _ _ _ _
I guess that I don't need that though
Now you're just somebody that I used to know

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