SOMEBODY THAT I USED TO KNOW
Elliott Smith


I had tender feelings that you made hard

But its your heart not mine thats scarred

So when I go home I'll be happy to go

You're just somebody that I used to know


You don't need my help anymore

Its all now to you, there ain't no before

Now that you're big enough to run your own show

You're just somebody that I used to know


I watched you deal in a dying day

And throw a living past away

So you can be sure that you're in control

You're just somebody that I used to know


I know you don't think you did me wrong

And I cant stay this mad for long

Keepin' a hold of what you just let go

You're just somebody that I used to know
