SOMEBODY I USED TO KNOW, de GOTYE

Publié le 31 Mai 2012

Une  chanson que j'adore. A l'entendre à la radio, j'étais persuadée qu'elle était chantée par Sting, tant la voix lors des refrains est similaire à celle du célèbre chanteur britanique. Je me suis dit, cela est peut-être un inédit de l'époque du groupe Police.

Et bien non, cette chanson est celle de ce jeune homme, Gotye. Comme j'ai découvert récemment le plaisir et la simplicité du téléchargement LEGAL, je me suis fait un plaisir à l'ajouter sur mon MP4 et ne me gène pas pour l"écouter en boucle....

 

 

Bonne écoute, et si ça vous plait, n'hésitez pas à vous pencher sur l'album...

Somebody That I Used To Know

Now and then I think of when we were together
Like when you said you felt so happy http://lyricstranslate.com 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 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
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

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
And 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
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

Somebody...

I used to know
That I used to know

Somebody...

Now you're just somebody that I used to know

Quequ'un que j'ai connu

De temps en temps je repense à quand nous étions ensemble
Genre, quand tu a dit que tu étais heureuse à en mourir
Je me suis dit que tu étais celle qu'il me fallait
Mais je me sentais si seul en ta compagnie
Mais c'était de l'amour et c'est une douleur dont je me souviens toujours

On peut devenir accro à une certaine forme de tristesse
Comme la résignation à la fin
Toujours la fin
Alors quand on s'est rendu compte que ça ne nous menait à rien d'être ensemble
Et bien tu as dit que l'on pourrait toujours être amis
Mais je t'avouerai que j'étais content que ce soit la fin

Mais ce n'était pas la peine de couper les ponts
De faire croire que ce n'était jamais arrivé
Et comme s'il n'y avait jamais rien eu entre nous
Et je n'ai même pas besoin de ton amour
Mais tu me traites comme un étranger
C'est si cruel
Tu n'avais pas à t'abaisser jusque là
Jusqu'à envoyer tes amis récupérer tes CDs
Et puis changer de numéro
Ceci-dit, j'imagine que je n'en ai pas besoin
Maintenant tu es juste quelqu'un que j'ai connu
Maintenant tu es juste quelqu'un que j'ai connu
Maintenant tu es juste quelqu'un que j'ai connu

De temps en temps je repense à toutes les fois où tu m'as bien eu
Mais tu me faisais croire que c'était toujours de ma faute
Et je ne veux pas vivre de cette façon
Interpréter chaque mot que tu dis
Tu disais que tu pouvais arrêter
Et que je ne te surprendrais pas à être obsédé par quelqu'un que tu as connu...

Mais ce n'était pas la peine de couper les ponts
De faire croire que ce n'était jamais arrivé
Et comme s'il n'y avait jamais rien eu entre nous
Et je n'ai même pas besoin de ton amour
Mais tu me traites comme un étranger
C'est si cruel
Tu n'avais pas à t'abaisser jusque là
Jusqu'à envoyer tes amis récupérer tes CDs
Et puis changer de numéro
Ceci-dit, j'imagine que je n'en ai pas besoin
Maintenant tu es juste quelqu'un que j'ai connu

Quelqu'un...

Et si vous ne "causez" ou "understandez" pas bien l'anglais ou que vous voulez comprendre la chanson en Franaçais, voici un lien vers la traduction :

http://lyricstranslate.com/fr/somebody-i-used-know-quequun-que-jai-connu.html

En gros, ça parle d'une rupture amoureuse. Vous savez, le genre de rupture où l'on fait un constat commun d'échec et où l'on se dit, "On reste amis hein !," Moi, je pense que quand l'amour est passé par là, l'amitié retrouve rarement sa place... et ainsi, tout est effacé. Ne restent que des souvenirs, ou des regrets, voire rien du tout....

Somebody That I used to Know est une superbe chanson
que j’ai découverte il y a quelque temps. Toutefois, je préfère la version remixée par Tiesto. En tout cas, merci pour le partage. Cela fait un moment que je n’ai pas écouté cette
chanson. 

Géraldine 30/08/2013 16:10



@ Cceline : je ne connais pas la version de Tiesto ! Mais celle ci, comme je l'ai écoutée en boucle lors de sa sortie !



Lystig 30/06/2012 09:15


j'aime bcp aussi !

Géraldine 02/07/2012 21:19



@ Lystig ; J'ai l'impression que c'est le tube marquant en ce moment, celui qu'on remarque et qu'on oublie pas.



Tiphanie 03/06/2012 13:26


J'aime aussi beaucoup cette chanson, et je suis d'accord avec toi. C'est au dessus de mes forces d'être amie avec qqun que j'ai pu aimer, pour autant c'est difficile de juste considérer l'autre
comme "Somebody that I used to know" ...

Géraldine 08/06/2012 14:17



@ Tiphanie : Oui, c'est assez terrible comme on peut changé de statut dans le coeur d'une personne...



mary 02/06/2012 17:51


Merci du partage j'aime beaucoup découvrir ces chansons et les clips sont très originaux !

Géraldine 08/06/2012 14:21



Mary : Dès que je l'ai entendue, j'ai adoré cette chanson, elle ne pouvait qu'atterrir ici. Surtout que je suis assez en colère contre les radios qui donnent finalement peu de chance au nouveau
artiste à force de nous passer 2/3 de vieilleries !



Didi 31/05/2012 21:55


J'ai acheté l'album qui est délicieux !


Quand je pense que tu l'écoutes sur fond de bleu ...


Pour l'amour et l'amitié je suis d'accord avec toi quand l'amour est passé par là très difficile de se contenter de l'amitié !


Bisous

Géraldine 08/06/2012 15:21



@ Didi : Et bien figure toi que je n'ai pas écouté de musique et à peine lu pendant mes vacances ! Une croisière, c'est finalement très actif !



L'Irrégulière 31/05/2012 19:16


J'aime beaucoup cette chanson...

Géraldine 09/06/2012 16:47



@ L'irrégulière : Oui, je me souviens, tu l'avais mise sur FB !



Alex-Mot-à-Mots 31/05/2012 10:53


J'aime bien cette chanson, aussi. Ca y est, je l'ai dans la tête... Remarque, il y a pire.

Géraldine 09/06/2012 16:47



@ Alex : Oui, je peux t'en mettre une autre dans la tête si tu veux comme euh... La danse des canards !
