Somebody that I used to know - Gotye

in fig.1, the high strings are very heavily muted.
you almost can't hear a pitch, but i'm pretty sure it's there.

[verse 1]
(fig.1)
Dm       C              Dm      C     Dm   C  Dm C
Now and then I think of when we were together
Dm            C                Dm     C        Dm  C Dm C         
Like when you said you felt so happy you could die
Dm     C                  Dm         C      
Told myself that you were right for me
Dm           C             Dm      C
But felt so lonely in your company
Dm            C                Dm       C     Dm    C  Dm  C
But that was love and it's an ache I still remember

[Verse 2]
(play with fig.1)
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      C        Bb      C        Dm      C        Bb      C

 1 + 2 + 3 + 4 +  1 + 2 + 3 + 4 +  1 + 2 + 3 + 4 +  1 + 2 + 3 + 4 + 
And I don't even need your love But you treat me like a stranger And that feels so rough

 Dm      C        Bb      C        Dm      C        Bb      C

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

[interlude]


[verse 3]
(with fig.1)
Dm       C             Dm                  C          Dm  C Dm C      
Now and then I think of all the times you screwed me over
Dm          C                Bb              C      Dm   C Dm
But had me believing it was always something that I'd done

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...
