Simple but Fascinating ...

Every now and then ... I would encounter something that would simply catch my attention. I don't even know why and how .. but it just did. For instance, this song titled, "Somebody That I Used to Know"  by Gotye. The voices, the rhythm and the lyrics simply captured me totally.

I found the singers' voices simply captivating and check out how four singers shared one simple guitar and yet able to produce such an amazing rhythm ...

Here is the snapshot of the lyrics ...

"Now and then I think of when we were together
Like when you said you felt so happy you could die
I 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 kinda 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 it like it never happened and that we were nothing
I don't even need your love, but you treat me like a stranger
And that feels so rough ...""

I hope you enjoy the song and find it mesmerizing. Isn't it true that sometimes in our lives, we met someone that we became so close, be an ex or a close friend, but somehow things happened and that person that we were once knew so well became someone that we used to know? --Simply wordless ...

Until next stop ...
