Patricia Barber – You Don't Know Me lyrics

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
Well, you don't know me

No, you don't know the one who dreams of you at night
And longs to kiss your lips and longs to hold you tight
To you I'm just a friend that's all I've ever been
No, you don't know me

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
A chance that you might love me too

You give your hand to me and then you say, "Goodbye"
I watched you walk away beside some lucky guy
Oh, you'll never, never know the one who loved you so
No, you don't know me
