It means nothing – Chanson de Stereophonics

It means nothingStereophonics / Teenage cancer trust show, Royal Albert Hall (Londres)

It means nothing

Did we lose ourselves again ?
Do we take in what’s been said ?
Do we take the time to be
All the things we said we’d be
Bury heads in sand
But my future’s in my hands

It means nothing

You can find yourself a God
Believe in which one you want
‘Cos they love you all the same
They just go by different names
When we fly our flag today
Are you proud or just ashamed ?

It means nothing
If I haven’t got you

And the sun sets in the sky
You’re the apple of my eye
If the bomb goes off again
In my brain or on the train
I hope that I’m with you
‘Cos I wouldn’t know what to do

It means nothing
If I haven’t got you

Somebody That I Used To Know – Chanson de Gotye

Somebody that I used to know

 

Somebody That I Used To Know

 

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 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

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 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

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

I used to know
That I used to know

Somebody…
