Chantelle\'s Ramblings This song was everywhere while I was in Toronto this past week:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8UVNT4wvIGY "Somebody That I Used To Know"
(feat. Kimbra)

[Gotye:]
"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 I feel 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
Part of 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 I feel so rough
And 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"

I like the perspective of this song because the speaker is the person who said "I still want to be friends" lingering on the fact that the person on the other end of that statement has just cut them out the picture.

Time does not heal all wounds. "Being friends" is not an option if one person in the equation still has unresolved feelings. Rather then continue to humiliate oneself by clinging onto "friendship" sometimes it's easier to walk away and become "somebody they used to know."
