"You Don't Know Her Like I Do" as written by Brantley Keith Gilbert and Jim Mccormick....
Hey old friend, thanks for callin'
It's good to know somebody cares
Yeah she's gone, but I don't feel like talkin'
It might be just too much to bear
To hear somebody say it stops hurting
Or to hear somebody say she ain't worth it

'Cause you don't know her like I do
You'll never understand
And you don't know we've been through
That girl's my best friend
And there's no way you're gonna help me
She's the only one who can
No, you don't know how much I've got to lose
You don't know her like I do

I can't forget, I'm drowning in these memories
It fills my soul with all the little things
And I can't cope, it's like a death inside the family
It's like she stole my way to breathe
So don't try to tell me I'll stop hurting
And don't try to tell me she ain't worth it

'Cause you don't know her like I do
You'll never understand
And you don't know we've been through
That girl's my best friend
And there's no way you're gonna help me
She's the only one who can
No, you don't know how much I've got to lose
You don't know her like I do

You don't know her like I do
You'll never understand
And you don't know we've been through
That girl's my best friend
There's no way you're gonna help me
She's the only one who can
No, you don't know how much I've got to lose
No, you'll never know how much I've got to lose
You don't know her like I do, not like I do

Not like I do
Never understand
That girl's my best friend
That girl's my best friend
That girl's my best friend

    Song MeaningThis is about a guy who has a really cares about his friend, who's a woman,
    who he's close to losing their friendship. He is really upset that shes not around.
    "You'll never understand, you don't know what we've been through.
    That girls my best friend" & "No, you don't know how much I've to lose.."
    And his friend is trying to be understanding and Brantley says "You'll never understand"

    This is a very sad song that really hits home.

    Song MeaningThis is about a man who went through a break-up and his friends are trying to console and comfort him. Basically, the friends are comforting him by telling him that he can do better, she wasn't good enough, she was a bad person etc. but the man says his friends don't "know her like [he] do[es]" and that she was truly his best friend. He is devastated that he lost his best friend, his love. It's as if someone died, and he is suffering in the memories they had. He asks his friends not to say everything will all right, she wasn't worthy of him, or even try to help him because she's the only one who can make him feel better. It's a very sad song about losing a love who wasn't just a love, but a best friend.

    Song MeaningThis song is about a man who just has gone through a breakup and he still misses the woman and wants her back. All his friends are basically telling him that she isn't worth it and that he's going to forget about her, but he's saying that its not because she was his best friend and nobody understands what he's going through. Its so sad, and exactly what happened to me.

    General CommentGoing through this very song.

    So many people think that by saying to get over a woman that you can do that. You cant. I will probably love her for the rest of my life.

    It feels like she has died, and I am left all alone. She is all I can think of.
