Somebody That I Used To Know" [Gotye:] feat. kimbra

sebuah lagu yang direkomendasikan seorang teman yang pernah sakit hati dan bertengkar hebat denganku karena wanita pujaannya lebih memilihku daripada dia. seorang sahabat yang bisa menjadi  tempat dimana biasanya kita bisa menertawakan kehidupan.

lagu ini sebenarnya ketika baru saja kubuka dan kulihat di youtube secara power itu lagu ga terlalu menarik karena memang lagunya terkesan cengeng mendesah, seakan seorang yang pasrah dengan keadaan yang menimpa dirinya dan tidak sekalipun berjuang untuk berusaha mengubahnya. tapi di tengah lagu sampai endingnya ternyata salah mungkin ini semacam genre lagu baru yang memang dibuat dengan nada rendah di awal menggebrak ditengah dan konsisten di akhir.

namun menelisik lebih jauh mengenai lirik yang ada dalam lagu ini sungguh jauh dari kesan cengeng dan pasrah karena ini merupakan sebuah lagu yang memang ditujukan untuk merubah keadaan dimana kita harus lebih keras pada diri kita sendiri,walaupun saya sendiri tidak terlalu paham mengenai bagaimana proses lagu itu sendiri.  kemudian menyadari bahwasannya bahasa inggris saya tidak terlalu bagus. mungkin pemahaman dan penafsiran saya tidak bisa dijadikan patokan,

tapi ada beberapa part yang tetep saya suka mengulang dan melafalkannya...

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

[Kimbra:]
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

[Gotye:]
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
