    *************
    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 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 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

    I used to know
    That I used to know

    Somebody...

    Easy Way Out lyrics

    Seventeen seconds and I'm over it
    Ready for the disconnect
    Putting on a brave face
    Trying not to listen
    to the voices in the back of my head

    (But it's alright now)
    It's a distant memory baby
    (It's alright now)
    You know you should just let it go

    But some feelings have a habit of persisting
    even though you wouldn't let it show

    Wearing me out
    (All this)
    Hanging around
    (It just starts)
    Getting me down
    ('till I'm just)
    Looking for an easy way out

    Braindead from boredom
    I'm led to distraction
    Scratching the surface of life
    Nothing really happens
    But it's easy to keep busy
    When you tell yourself you're traveling right

    (But it's alright now)
    Was it really worth it baby?
    (It's alright now)
    Was it just a waste of time?

    Keep on second-guessing
    Use my memory like a weapon
    On everything I try

    **************************
    Now your bowl is empty
    And your feet are cold
    And your body cannot stop rocking
    I know
    It hurts to let go

    Since the day we found you
    You have been our friend
    And your voice still
    Echoes in the hallway of this house
    But now
    It's the end

    We will be with you
    When you're leaving
    We will be with you
    When you go
    We will be with you
    And hold you till you're quiet
    It hurts to let you go

    We will be with you
    You will stay with us
