Michael Mcdonald – You Don't Know Me lyrics

You give your hand to me then you say, 'Hello'
I can hardly speak, my heart is beating so
Oh, anyone who can tell, you think you know me well
You don't know me 'cause you don't know

Dreams of you at night who longs to kiss your lips
Longs to hold you tight, to you I'm just a friend
That's all I've ever been, you don't know me

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

You give your hand to me and then you say goodbye
I watch you walk away, wish I'm that lucky guy
You'll never, never know the one who loves you so
You don't know me, no, no, no, you don't know me
