Intro: Dm chordDm, C chordC, Dm chordDm, C chordC x5

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

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

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

Dm chordDm C chordC Bb chordBb C chordC
Somebody...

Ends on Dm chordDm

Sorry, but i am a newbie and i wanted to know the rythm of this tab...so does somebody know how can i play it?(for example with up(=strum from the down to the up) and down.....)More generally, it would be great to see in this site an idea of rythm at each time you see a tab...
