Intro - x5 -: Em  D  Em  D

Verse:
Em       D              Em      D     Em   D  Em D
Now and then I think of when we were together
Em            D                Em     D        Em  D Em D
Like when you said you felt so happy you could die
Em     D                  Em         D
Told myself that you were right for me
Em           D             Em      D
But felt so lonely in your company
Em            D                Em       D     Em    D  Em  D
But that was love and it's an ache I still remember

Bridge - x4 -: Em  D  Em  D

Verse - same chords as first Verse -:
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

Chorus:
Em      D              C     D
But you didn't have to cut me off
Em        D            C
Make out like it never happened
         D          Em
And that we were nothing
    D             C       D
And I don't even need your love
         Em              D
But you treat me like a stranger
          C       D
And that feels so rough
Em    D              C      D
No, you didn't have to stoop so low
Em         D                   C
Have your friends collect your records
          D           Em
And then change your number
  D                  C          D
I guess that I don't need that though
Em               D              C      D
Now you're just somebody that I used to know
Em               D              C      D
Now you're just somebody that I used to know
Em               D              C      D
Now you're just somebody that I used to know

Verse:
Em       D             Em                  D          Em  D Em D
Now and then I think of all the times you screwed me over
Em          D                C              D      Em   D Em D
But had me believing it was always something that I'd done
Em    D            C       D
And I don't wanna live that way
Em       D          C      D
Reading into every word you say
Em   D                   C     D
You said that you could let it go
Em                       D              C            D
And I wouldn't catch you hung up on somebody that you used to know

Chorus:
Em      D              C     D
But you didn't have to cut me off
Em        D            C
Make out like it never happened
         D          Em
And that we were nothing
    D             C       D
And I don't even need your love
         Em              D
But you treat me like a stranger
          C       D
And that feels so rough
Em    D              C      D
No, you didn't have to stoop so low
Em         D                   C
Have your friends collect your records
          D           Em
And then change your number
  D                  C          D
I guess that I don't need that though
Em               D              C      D
Now you're just somebody that I used to know
Em               D              C      D
Now you're just somebody that I used to know
Em               D              C      D
Now you're just somebody that I used to know

Em D  C  D
I used to know
Em  D  C       D
That I used to know

Em D C D
Now you're just somebody that I used to know

    I thought the intro goes like this:

    l- – – – – – 0-1-3-0 – – – – – – – – – – – -l
    l-1-1-3-3- – – – – 3-1-1-0-0 – – – – -l
    l- – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – 2-2-0-l x2
    l- – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – l

  3. |——-0-1-3-0——————|
    |————–3—–1-1-0-0—–|
    |0-0————————2-2-0|
    |—-0-0————————-|

    I found this easier
