Intro: Dm Dm, C C, Dm Dm, C C x5

Verse:
Dm Dm C C Dm Dm C C Dm Dm C C Dm Dm C C
Now and then I think of when we were together
Dm Dm C C Dm Dm C C Dm Dm C C Dm Dm C C
Like when you said you felt so happy you could die
Dm Dm C C Dm Dm C C
Told myself that you were right for me
Dm Dm C C Dm Dm C C
But felt so lonely in your company
Dm Dm C C Dm Dm C C Dm Dm C C Dm Dm C C
But that was love and it's an ache I still remember

Bridge: Dm Dm, C C, Dm Dm, C C x4

Verse 2:
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

Chorus:
Dm Dm C C Bb Bb C C
But you didn't have to cut me off
Dm Dm C C Bb Bb
Make out like it never happened
C C Dm Dm
And that we were nothing
C C Bb Bb C C
And I don't even need your love
Dm Dm C C
But you treat me like a stranger
Bb Bb C C
And that feels so rough
Dm Dm C C Bb Bb C C
You didn't have to stoop so low
Dm Dm C C Bb Bb
Have your friends collect your records
C C Dm Dm
And then change your number
C C Bb Bb C C
I guess that I don't need that though
Dm Dm C C Bb Bb C C
Now you're just somebody that I used to know

Verse 3:
Dm Dm C C Dm Dm C C Dm Dm C C Dm Dm C C
Now and then I think of all the times you screwed me over
Dm Dm C C Bb Bb C C Dm Dm C C Dm Dm C C
But had me believing it was always something that I'd done
Dm Dm C C Bb Bb C C
And I don't wanna live that way
Dm Dm C C Bb Bb C C
Reading into every word you say
Dm Dm C C Bb Bb C C
You said that you could let it go
Dm Dm C C Bb Bb C C
And I wouldn't catch you hung up on somebody that you used to know...

Chorus:
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


Dm Dm C C Bb Bb C C
I used to know
Dm Dm C C Bb Bb C C
That I used to know x2

Dm Dm C C Bb Bb C C
Somebody...

Ends on Dm Dm
