Gotye & Kimbra – Somebody That I Used To Know

Hace unos días Miguel Morera me recomendaba un silencio: el «Settle Down» de Kimbra (pegadizo como él solo), lo que me recordó que tenía guardado en el congelador de este blog una colaboración muy interesante de esta artista con Gotye.

Australiano vs. neozelandesa. Dos voces potentes que sacan lo mejor que tienen en ese estribillo que gira de tono. Una pequeña joya dentro del álbum de Gotye Making Mirrors (2011) y que ya ha aparecido en numerosas series de televisión: 90210, Gossip Girl, Glee, …

No os perdáis tampoco el vídeo ;-):


Now and then I think of when we were together
Like when you said you felt so happy you could die
I 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 kinda 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 it like it never happened and that we were nothing
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
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

Now and then I think of all the times you screwed me over
But had me believin 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-oh-oh
