Based on Gotye’s ‘Somebody that I used to know’

Now and then I think of when I used to do this
Like when I said this was a simple thing to build
I told myself that it was right for me
To build this software for your company
But I was wrong and it’s an ache I still remember

You can get addicted to a certain kinda project
Like a death march to the end, always the end
So when we found that it could not make sense
To do this project with this recompense
Then 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 I did nothing
I don’t even need your cash, but you treat me like a stranger
And that feels so rough

No, you didn’t have to stoop so low
Take my work, write up an invoice
And then take the money
Guess that I don’t need that though
Now it’s just some software that I used to build

Now it’s just some software that I used to build

Now it’s just some software that I used to build

(

Now and then I think of all the times you screwed me over
But had me believin it was always something that I’d done

But I don’t wanna work that way
Reading into every word you say
You said that you could write new code
And I wouldn’t catch you hacking on some software that you used to buiiiild

But you didn’t have to cut me off
Make out like it never happened and that I did nothing
I don’t even need your cash, but you treat me like a stranger
And that feels so rough

(oh)

No, you didn’t have to stoop so low
Take my work, write up an invoice
And then take the money
Guess that I don’t need that though
Now it’s just some software that I used to build

Some software (I used to build)
Some software that I used to build
Some software (now it’s just some software that I used to build)
That I used to build
Some software that I used to build
Some software (Some software) (now it’s just some software that I used to build)
That I used to build

I used to build
That I used to build
I used to build
Some software
