Somebody

Does not matter how much we love the love of our life
Does not matter how much we move on..
Does not matter how much busy we get on with life..

We just doesn’t seem to move on enough
Enough to not give a damn about somebody
Somebody that we once loved.

There is always that somebody ..
Somebody that leaves a tingle in the heart with just a thought

That aching of our soul..
that beating of the heart,
A deep breath to gulp down the though of that very memory.
There is always somebody that walks through our mind..

It’s all gone…
Those times..those moments..
But the memory and the feeling of emptiness..
Never goes away.

That doesn’t mean that we are not happy with what we are..
With what we have achieved
With whom we choose to be with
The path we decided to take and walked on at the end.

But there is always a pain ….
A place in our memories, mind, heart & soul
There is always somebody that we once used to know,
Somebody that we can never get…

Except of course the thoughts that run wild in our mind.
And we take a deep breath and carry on.

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 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
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

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
But 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
And 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

Now you’re just somebody that I used to know
Now you’re just somebody that I used to know
