"You Don't Know Me" as written by David Hodges, Allison Iraheta, Mitch Allan and David Bassett....
I'm a ghost of a girl that you looked right past
I'm a voice you didn't wanna hear
I'm a page of a book that you read to fast,
But I'm still here.
You never cared never tried never even asked,
Maybe I didn't wanna say
You shut your eyes told your lies and you had your laugh
And that's okay

[Chorus]
Cause you don't know me
You don't wanna know what's real
And I'm not sorry
For who I am for what I feel, cause you don't know me.

I got more on my mind that I've never told
I've got pain that you've never felt
I've got the scars I can deal with it on my own
I've got stories that I'd never tell.
But maybe it's just as well

[Chorus]

I'm strong, I'm a mess altogether an emotional wreck
I can scream I can beg you to see I'm alive
I'm awake I'm unglued
I'm not gonna break down, no.

You don't know me
You don't wanna know what's real
And I'm not sorry

[Chorus]

Cause you don't know me
You don't wanna know what's real
And I'm not sorry
For who I am, you don't understand, just how I feel.
Cause you don't know me.

    General CommentLove this song. so true. people judge way to quickly before they know anything about someone. truly, there is more to every person than what meets the eye.

    My InterpretationI love this song (let's face it, I love all the songs on Allison Iraheta's album...it's just so goood!) If this is just the startings or the beginning of Allison writing/co-writing her songs, then I can't wait for the rest! I love the idea/concept of this song. In Allison's words, "Pre-judgement sucks". The song's self explanatory. Allison's singing to a person/people who keep judging her, without even truly knowing her. They keep making assumptions and judging too quickly when they don't know anything about her or her personal life. I love the line " 'Cause you don't know me. You don't know what's real. And I'm not sorry for who I am, for what I feel" !!
