Israel Kamakawiwo'ole – You Don't Know Me lyrics

You give your hand to me and you say, "Hello"
And I can hardly speak, my heart is beating so
But you'll never know, the one who loved you so
You don't know me

And you don't know the one who dreams of you at night
And longs to kiss your lips and longs to hold you tight
But I'm just a friend that's all I've ever been
You don't know me

I never knew the art of making love
Though my heart aches with love for you, ooh
Afraid and shy, I let my chance go by
A chance, you might love me too, ooh

You give your hand to me then you say, "Goodbye"
I watched you walk away beside the lucky guy
But you'll never ever know, the one who loved you so
You don't know me

I never knew the art of making love
And my heart aches with love for you, ooh
Afraid and shy, I let my chance go by
A chance, you might love me too

You give your hand to me and you say, "Goodbye"
I watched you walk away beside the lucky guy
But I'm just a friend, it's all I ever been
You don't know me, you don't know me
