Verse 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:
Dm           C            Dm      C        Dm       C   Am  C
You can get addicted to a certain kind of sadness
Dm         C            Dm
Like resignation to the end
C          Dm   C   Dm  C
Always the end
Dm         C                   Dm        C
So when we found that we could not make sense
Dm       C                   Dm       C
Well you said that we would still be friends
Dm         C               Dm       C       Dm   C  Dm C
But I'll admit that I was glad that it was over

Chorus 1:
Dm      C              Bb     C
But you didn't have to cut me off
Dm       C             Bb
Make out like it never happened
         C          Dm
And that we were nothing
    C             Bb       C
And I don't even need your love
         Dm              C
But you treat me like a stranger
         Bb       C      Dm
And that feels so rough
    C               Bb      C
You didn't have to stoop so low
Dm         C                   Bb
Have your friends collect your records
          C           Dm
And then change your number
  C                  Bb         C
I guess that I don't need that though
Dm              C               Bb      C
Now you're just somebody that I used to know
Dm | C | Dm | C
Dm              C               Bb      C 
Now you're just somebody that I used to know
Dm | C | Dm | C
Dm              C               Bb      C 
Now you're just somebody that I used to know

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

Chorus 2:
Dm      C              Bb     C
But you didn't have to cut me off
Dm       C             Bb
Make out like it never happened
         C          Dm
And that we were nothing
    C             Bb       C
And I don't even need your love
         Dm              C
But you treat me like a stranger
         Bb       C      Dm
And that feels so rough
    C               Bb      C
You didn't have to stoop so low
Dm         C                   Bb
Have your friends collect your records
          C           Dm
And then change your number

I guess that I don't need that though

Now you're just somebody that I used to know
