"You Know Me" as written by and Jorge Alexander Florez....
I got nothing left, I’m all out
I’m about to bow out and let this thing come down
All around me
And lay still till somebody found me
I’ve got an army of angels behind me
But it’s an age-old rule that defines me
The heavenly host will help the ones who help themselves
But I’m ashamed to tell
That I hoarded my wealth when I heard that hell’s for sale
Once upon a time all the angels were well off
Til the rebellion swelled up
And the proud, with one last rebel yell
Were struck down and fell off
The face of the heavens
All cause of thinking that freedom is something that it isn’t
Hell’s a nice, warm place I never wanna visit
But I’m starting to think I’m already living in it
And in a minute my body’s gonna implode
And my skin’s gonna end up inside of my bones
And I’m crying, “Mama, no, I just wanna go home.”
Cause if I had to cry alone
I don’t wanna die alone
It’s just me and this microphone
But how do I know what all y’all can see
When you look at me?
There’s no biography about me
But if there were, I’d be going through the pages
To find out what my name is
The shame is, the pain is gonna remain
No matter whose the blame is

You know me, you know me
You know me well enough to hit me where I’m weak
You kiss me on the cheek, kiss me on the cheek
You kiss me so I’ll be revealed to my enemies
You love me, you love me
You love me well enough to keep me coming
Back and forth and back for more and that just makes you
laugh
You throw your arms around me and I forget the grievances I
had
But from this posture of peacemaking
You rip my heart out through my back

So I stop always pointing my finger at you
Cause my friends are gone but a lingering few
I start thinking of you and the trap I set for you
Nothing like that ignorant crew
But, wait, turned around, checked a mirror
Guess what I found
It seems to me that loneliness begins within sometimes
Can’t just say, “Hold me, miss,” and suddenly feel fine
So I think it’s in my interest to bide my time
And reconcile my heart and mind
Cause if I seem alright, it’s a lie and I’m dying inside
And you always leave me high and dry
So I’m try to find a better way to get things straight
And make this hate in me abate
And make some space for me to stretch out
And get this anger to raise up and get the hell out
Cause the only things that remain in doubt are
The who, the where, the when, the how
If you don’t even believe that there is a missing peace
Or it can’t be found
Then you can’t help me, only God now

You know me, you know me
You know me well enough to hit me where I’m weak
You kiss me on the cheek, kiss me on the cheek
You kiss me so I’ll be revealed to my enemies
You love me, you love me
You love me well enough to keep me coming
Back and forth and back for more and that just makes you
laugh
You throw your arms around me and I forget the grievances I
had
But from this posture of peacemaking
You rip my heart out through my back

Ooo
Ooo, ooo
Uh uh oh...

You know me, you know me
You know me well enough to hit me where I’m weak
You kiss me on the cheek, kiss me on the cheek
You kiss me so I’ll be revealed to my enemies
You love me, you love me
You love me well enough to keep me coming
Back and forth and back for more and that just makes you
laugh
You throw your arms around me and I forget the grievances I
had
But from this posture of peacemaking
You rip my heart out through my back
