Gotye – Easy Way Out

Pretty video but not as pretty as you dear reader.

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)
Alright now
(You know you should just let it go)

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
(‘Til I’m just)
Looking for an easy way out

Brain-dead 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?)
Alright now
(Was it just a waste of time?)

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

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

Wearing me out
(But it’s alright now)
Hanging around
(Alright now)
Getting me down
(But it’s alright now)
Looking for an easy way out

Gotye – The Only Thing I Know

And sticking with a Gotye theme here’s probably my favourite by him other than ‘Somebody that I used to know’

Lyrically this song is my love life personified. I’d like Gotye to stop making songs that describe my life so well it’s gonna get awkward soon 🙂

LYRICS:

I’m living with your memory
In the attic in my mind
And you’ve been getting by without me
But I’ve been spending all my time
With a girl that I remember
Who’ll never leave or need to grow
Cos when you left you left your memory
Now it’s the only thing I know

When the past gives me no comfort
And though the future is the cost
The way I’m choosing to remember
I’ll forever be the man I never was

And you, you fade
But the memory remains the same
And I, I can’t change
And I think that living with your memory
Is slowly driving me insane

You are perfect but you’re empty
And it gets so lonely in my mind
Cos your image in my memory’s
The only shred of you that’s left behind
You were real but then you left me
And that’s the part I can’t accept
So I’ll keep on living with your memory
Because it’s all that I’ve got left

Gotye- Somebody That I Used To Know

So I heard this song today and died alittle bit inside. Feels like it’s a song about all my past relationships! Intense but the best musical find of the month.

 

Wowza!

 

Lyrics:

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…
