I had tender feelings that you made hard
But it's your heart not mine that's scarred
So when I go home I'll be happy to go
You're just somebody that I used to know

You don't need my help anymore
It's all now to you; there ain't no before
Now that you're big enough to run your own show
You're just somebody that I used to know

I watched you deal in a dying day
And throw a living past away
So you can be sure that you're in control
You're just somebody that I used to know

I know you don't think you did me wrong
And I can't stay this mad for long
Keepin' a hold of what you just let go
You're just somebody that I used to know
