[Dm] Now and [C]then I think of [Dm]when we [C]were [Dm]together C,  Dm,  C
[Dm]Like when you [C]said you felt so [Dm]happy [C]you could [Dm]die  C Dm C
[Dm]Told my[C]self that you were [Dm]right for [C]me
[Dm]But felt so [C]lonely in your [Dm]company[C]
[Dm]But that was [C]love and it's an [Dm]ache I [C]still rem[Dm]ember C, Dm, C

Bridge - repeat intro x 4

Verse (same chord progression as above)

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


[Dm]But you [C]didn't have to [Bb]cut me [C]off
[Dm]Make out [C]like it never [Bb]happened
And that [C]we were [Dm]nothing
And I [C]don't even [Bb]need your [C]love
But you [Bb]treat me like a [C]stranger
And that [Bb]feels so [C]rough

[Dm]No, you [C]didn't have to [Bb]stoop so [C]low
[Dm]Have your [C]friends collect your [Bb]records
And then [C]change your [Dm]number
I [C]guess that I don't [Bb]need that [C]though
[Dm]Now you're just some[C]body that I [Bb]used to [C]know
[Dm]Now you're just some[C]body that I [Bb]used to [C]know
[Dm]Now you're just some[C]body that I [Bb]used to [C]know


[Dm]Now and [C]then I think of [Dm]all the times you [C]screwed me [Dm]over C, Dm, C
[Dm]But had me[C] believing it was [Bb]always something [C]that I'd [Dm]done C. Dm, C
[Dm]And I [C]don't wanna [Bb]live that [C]way
[Dm]Reading [C]into every [Bb]word you [C]say
[Dm]You [C]said that you could [Bb]let it [C]go
[Dm]And I wouldn't catch you[C] hung up on some[Bb]body that you [C]used to know

Repeat Chorus, then end with:

[Dm]I [C]used [Bb]to [C]know

[Dm]I [C]used [Bb]to [C]know

[Dm]Now you're just some[C]body that I [Bb]used to [C]know
