You don't understand me
But if the feeling was right you might comprehend me
And why do you feel the need to tease me
Why don't you turn it around
It might be easier to please me

And there's always another point of view
A better way to do the things we do
And how can you know me and I know you
If nothing is true

What do you think that you are doing
Who is the fool the fool or the fool that you are fooling
And baby I just don't see the reason
But in the court of my heart
Your ignorance is treason

And there's always another point of view
A better way to do the things we do
And how can you know me and I know you
If nothing is true

You think you know how I feel
It's not that big of a deal
There's no such thing, it's not real, oh

You don't understand me
But if the feeling was right you might comprehend me
And I don't claim to understand you
But I've been looking around and I haven't found anybody like you

And there's always another point of view
A better way to do the things we do
And how can you know me and I know you
If nothing is true

    I think this song supports gay rights. It has helped me get through a hard time when no one understood me. Now, I can say that I am gay without feeling less than normal. I am human, and we are all the same inside. I hope this song has helped others like it has helped me.
    Peace and Kisses,
    Les
