Somebody That I Used To Know is een single van Gotye en Kimbra uit 2011. Het is afkomstig van Gotye's album Making Mirrors. Hij schreef het nummer op de familieboerderij op het Mornington Peninsula nabij Melbourne, Australië. Het kostte Gotye veel moeite om het nummer af te maken, hij wilde er eigenlijk mee stoppen, maar rondde het uiteindelijk af.[1] De zanger was daarna verbaasd dat het zo'n hit werd. Gotye en Kimbra bezingen allebei hun oude liefde. De single werd door 3VOOR12 uitgeroepen tot Song van het Jaar. Het nummer werd in 2012 ook de grootste hit ooit in Nederland.

Songtekst

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 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

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 (3x)

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
And 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)
Somebody! (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

(I used to know)
(That I used to know)
(I used to know)

Somebodyyyyy
