I take my pain
Write it across my face
I turn it up I play
It over and over until
I'm feeling strange
Straight from my fingertips
The hurting finally flips
This weight on my shoulders

Is anybody out there?
Does anyone care?

I want you to know
I want you to know
I want you to know who I am
I want you to know
I want you to know
If you really give a damn
If you want this
Be my witness
And I promise I'll be honest
I want you to know
I want you to know
Do you wanna know?

I try so hard
And I have pushed as far
As I can let my heart
But can anyone hear me
'Cause now I'm feeling dragged
So caught up in the past
Waiting for love at last
God, it's all so deceiving

I want you to know
I want you to know
I want you to know who I am
I want you to know
I want you to know
If you really give a damn
If you want this
Be my witness
And I promise I'll be honest
I want you to know
I want you to know
Do you wanna know?

Give me one reason not to hide
And I will show you all of what's inside
Give me one reason I should care
And I swear that I will
For every moment that you're there

I want you to know who I am

I want you to know
I want you to know
I want you to know who I am
I want you to know
I want you to know
If you really give a damn
Want you to know, who I am
Give me a good reason and I'll show you who I am
Who I am
Want you to know
Give me a good reason and I'll show you who I am
If you want this
Be my witness
And I promise I'll be honest
I want you to know
I want you to know
Do you wanna know?

    My InterpretationI think this song is about her relationship with her unknown father. She is asking him if he wants to get to know her. She is saying that it hurts that he has nothing to do with her and she want's to know if he cares about her. That, I think, is the basic meaning of this song

    General CommentOne of Kesha's most vulnerable songs. I would love to hear more of this from her. This song along with "Styrofoam" are my favorite of her work.
