You give your hand to me and then you say hello
And I can hardly speak - my heart is beating so
And anyone can tell you think you know me well
You dont know me.

Now if you dont know the one who longs at you each night
And longs to kiss your lips and longs to hold you tight
You know I am just a friend
Thats all Ive ever been.
You dont know me.

(refrain)
I never knew the art of making love
til my heart yearned with love you
If rain and shine let my chance go by
The chance you might have loved me too
You give your hand to me and then you say good-bye.
I watched you walk away beside some lucky guy.
To never, never know the one who loves you so.
cause you dont know me.

Refrain
