Gotye – I feel better – lyrics

Gotye – lyrics

Because my last post about Gotye met your interest, I publish lyrics of my second favourite song by Gotye. The previous song – Somebody that I used to know was a huge hit world-wide. Today I present lyrics of I feel better that is also popular, at least in Poland. The more I listen to that particular piece of music, the more I like Gotye’s record. I feel better, unlike Somebody that I used to know, does not contain meaningful words, however, melodic part of the song is rich.

I feel better – song

I feel better – lyrics

I feel better

There was a time I was down, down
I didn’t know what to do
I was just stumbling around, around
Thinking things could not improve

I couldn’t look on the bright side
Of anything at all
That’s when you gave me a call…

And I feel better
Better
Better than before
Now I’m not down anymore

There were times I was sure, so sure
I couldn’t turn it around
I couldn’t care anymore
About the good things I found

That’s when you gave me a reason
To make me smile again
I only have to see you and then

I feel better
Better
Better than before
Now I’m not down anymore

Life sometimes seems to get the best of you
Like everything just brings you down
just when you think
There’s nothing you can do
A friendly face will bring you around

And you’ll feel better
Better
Better than before
You’ll feel better
Much better
You won’t be down anymore

Somebody that I used to know – tłumaczenie z angielskiego na polski

Somebody that I used to know – tłumaczenie z angielskiego na polski

Ponieważ otrzymałam parę maili z prośbą o moją polską wersję popularnej piosenki Gotye, dziś prezentuję pełne tłumaczenie z języka angielskiego na język polski. Jest to dobre uzupełnienie do poprzednio zaprezentowanych tekstów oryginalnych piosenki Gotye, Walk Off the Earth i dwóch parodii wykonywanych przez The Riff i WOTE.

Ktoś, kogo kiedyś znałem

Czasami myślę o chwilach, kiedy byliśmy razem
Jak wtedy, kiedy powiedziałaś, że mogłabyś umrzeć ze szczęścia
Mówiłem sobie, że jesteś tą właściwą
Ale czułem się taki samotny w Twoim towarzystwie
Ale to była miłość i ból, który wciąż pamiętam

Można uzależnić się od pewnego rodzaju smutku
jak rezygnacja do końca
zawsze końca.
Więc kiedy odkryliśmy, że to nie ma sensu
Cóż, twierdziłaś, że wciąż będziemy przyjaciółmi
Ale przyznam, że cieszyłem się, że to już koniec.
Refren:
Ale nie musiałaś się odcinać ode mnie
Udawać, że to się nigdy nie zdarzyło
A my nic nie znaczyliśmy
Nawet nie potrzebuję Twojej miłości
Ale Ty traktujesz mnie jak obcego
A to ciężko znieść

Nie musiałaś zniżać się do tego
By dawać przyjaciołom swoje dane
A potem zmieniać numer telefonu
Myślę, że jednak tego nie potrzebuję
Teraz jesteś tylko kimś, kogo kiedyś znałem x3

Czasami myślę o tych wszystkich momentach, kiedy mnie oszukiwałeś
Ale sprawiałeś, iż zawsze wierzyłam, że to ja coś źle zrobiłam
I ja nie chcę tak żyć
Analizując każde słowo, które wypowiadasz
Powiedziałeś, że możesz sobie odpuścić
I nie rzucisz słuchawką podczas rozmowy z kimś, kogo kiedyś znałeś
Refren
Ktoś
Kogo kiedyś znałem
Ktoś
Teraz jesteś tylko kimś, kogo kiedyś znałem

Ktoś
Kogo kiedyś znałem
Ktoś
Teraz jesteś tylko kimś, kogo kiedyś znałem

Kiedyś znałem
Kogo kiedyś znałem
Kiedyś znałem
Ktoś…

Somebody that I used to know by Gotye – lyrics

Somebody that I used to know by Gotye – lyrics

Gotye – Somebody that I used to know – lyrics

For those who like the recent hit from Gotye I publish lyrics of ‘Somebody that I used to know.’

Since the cover of this song released by ‘Walk Off the Earth’ became even more popular than the original songs I give you the link to this version as well.

To have even more fun I encourage you to listen to some of both songs parodies. I found on YouTube two parodies I particularly like. It is the parody of Gotye’s song by The Riff and the parody of its cover  by WOTE. If you like that piece of music and you study English it will be a perfect exercise to learn English as a second language.

Here are the links to YouTube clips:
Gotye’s song – original song by Gotye

Walk Off the Earth’s cover – Walk Off the Earth’s cover of Gotye’s original song

The Riff’s parody of Gotye’s clip – the parody performed by the Riff crew

The WOTE parody – the parody recorded by the WOTE group

And now the lyrics:

Somebody that I used to know – 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’re 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

Refrain:
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    x3

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.
Refrain
Somebody
I used to know
Somebody
Now you’re just somebody that I used to know

Somebody
I used to know
Somebody
Now you’re just somebody that I used to know

I used to know
That I used to know
I used to know
Somebody…

Somebody that I used to know by The Riff – parody

Now and then I drink a little too much at the parties
Waking up standing against the wall completely nude
I told myself I should go easy
But then after I got quite tipsy
Someone painted a penis on my shoulder
It didn’t have to mess me up
Made me still that beat from nighttime I was meant surely to give up
I didn’t even need that kebab
I can’t remember half of night, there is something in my butt
It didn’t have to stoop so low
Takin’ my friend that picture of me licking that porn star
I guess that I didn’t need that shot
Now I’m just somebody that needs some clothes x2

Now and then you get drunk and screw you over.
Only ‘cause urine on you is so much fun
You really are quite small
Even though you look so tall
And now you are just somebody who needs some clothes

It didn’t have to mess me up
Made me still that beat from nighttime I was meant surely to give up
Somebody
Now I’m just somebody that needs some clothes
Somebody

Somebody that I used to know by WOTE – parody

Now and then we like to play one guitar together.
And that’s convenient since we only have the one
Tony sold our other instruments to pay some gangsta’s but he’s still in debt
And if they catch him he will surely be dismembered.
Tony is addicted to a wide array of narcotics
He says that they help him write, but we’re a cover band.
I’m not sure why we keep him in the band.
Maybe cause it’s because he drives the van
The rest of us can only drive an automatic.
This used just to be my guitar.
Now Dave is bangin on it like he’s f-ckin Tito Puente
We all look sad cause we are all starved
Cause tonight for dinner we’re spliting a candy bar.
We are the poorest band in the world.
We have to act like we’re camping but we’re really homeless.
And I don’t even own this voice.
We had to borrow it from Peter Gabriel
Don’t you know you gotta Shock The Monkey.
Climbing up on Solsbury Hill
Sledgehammer
Oompa loompa doompadee doo.
My feet are cold cause Tony sold my shoes.
I don’t think that we should blame our problems on Tony.
Tony is not the only dead beat in this band.
I don’t wanna name any names.
But Derick, Timothy and Dave
Each have fooled around with me.
I threw up this morning, now I’m gonna have a band baby.
You could have mentioned that before.
How can we afford to put a kid through kindergarten.
(Ahhhhhhhhhhhh)
(Ahhhhhhhhhhhh)
Hey guys where did Tony go?
You all know that Tony can’t be left alone.
And now he’s got the camera
If he sells it then we will officially have nothing.
There is nothing Tony can’t destroy.
But no one else knows how to do the plinky noise.
The clinking noise.
We need Tony!
To do the Clinky noise
Somebody get Tony – he does the clinky noise.
And send us some money for the clinky noise.
For the clinky noise.
My stomach feels funny.

Enjoy the music and dumb funny lyrics of the parodies! 🙂
