"I Don't Know You" as written by and Kate C. Havnevik....
I, I know the stars
Falling from the sky
Falling for you

And I, I know the wind
Combing your hair
Caressing your chin

But I don't know you
Will you show me
Who you are?
'Cause I want to know you
So please show me
How to know you

And I, I've seen the waves
Inside your heart
Turning you upside down

And I, I heard the dreams
You have at night
Giving you trouble

But I don't know you
Will you show me
Who you are?
'Cause I want to know you
So please show me
How I know you

    General CommentFirst off, this is one of my favorite songs by Kate. It's just so incredibly haunting.

    Second, to me, it seems that she is writing/singing of a boy that she sees, and often. But she doesn't know him how she would like to; she's asking him permission to get to know him. We've all done it before, where we like someone so much from afar, but don't have the courage to say anything to the person's face.

    General CommentTo me it seems like she knows a man she hasn't met yet. Somehow they are connected and she feels this connection through the stars, the wind and emotions which are linked to him. She's intrigued by this and wants to understand why she knows him so well even though they've never met.

    The last line says it all: please show me how I know you.
