"You Know Me Better" as written by and Andrew Derek/murphy Cocup....
Me, a new me
A new me, a new me
A new me

I think we waited
Long enough, baby
You know me
Only too well

I just thought someway I have to match you
So don't be defensive
No, no, don't try to pretend to
Look surprised

Have you ever known me?
Bit too shy to jump in
But when it comes to you, I can't win
'Cause you know me better than I know myself

You know me better than I know myself
You know me the best
You know me better than I know myself
You know what to expect

Me, a new me
A new me

Understand it, nobody understands you
The way that I can, let's see this thing through
One thing remaining
Things will never be the same again after tonight

So let's get down to it
This thing is getting stronger and stronger
When you did take it further
I can't wait no longer of waiting my turn
I've waited in line

How long have I known you?
Not in all this time been untrue
I think I'm rolling free, let me see this through
You know me better than I know myself

You know me better than I know myself
You know me the best
You know me better than I know myself
You know what to expect

You know me better than I know myself
You know me the best
You know me better than I know myself

How many years can we keep going on this way?
Too afraid to nurtured stay
Where I believe the friendship can survive
Maybe it won't, if we do or we don't

You know me better than I know myself
You know me the best
You know me better than I know myself
You know what to expect

You know me better than I know myself
You know me the best
You know me better than I know myself
You know what to expect

You know me better than I know myself
You know me better than I know myself
You know me better than I know myself
You know me better than I know myself
You know what to expect

    Song Meaningit's about being in love with a really good friend and wanting to take it to the next level. that's what she said in an interview. She has waited through all the failed relationships and heart aches with this friend and feels it's her turn.

    General CommentJust a magnificent song. A few corrections tho:

    "Have you ever known me BE to shy to jump in"
    "We NEED TO take it further"
    "I think we're more than friends" (not "I think I'm rolling free")

    General CommentI love this song! She's got an amazing voice, and the video is great as well. Pretty obvious it's about finding someone who can see you for who you are, and vice versa.
