"You Don't Know Me" as written by Jaron Lowenstein and Evan Lowenstein....
I run these stories through my head
Of her coming home
And us just staring at each other
And we'll both know
Yeah we'll just know
And I won't care
That she took me through a maze
And left me there for days
Until she made
Her mind to go away

You'd think I'd know by now
You'd think I'd wash this down
Did you think I'd hurt her now
Just to heal my heart
Then you don't know me
You don't know me
You don't know me
And she don't owe me anything

I'd love to think that she
Was out to hurt me
And given the facts
Still maybe we
We could, you know, we could try again
But she didn't mean the harm she put me through
And I could never go to her and trust
That she would ever care

You'd think I'd know by now
You'd think I'd wash this down
Did you think I'd hurt her now
Just to heal my heart
Then you don't know me
You don't know me
You don't know me
And she don't owe me anything

If time is all it takes then I've got plenty of that
Plenty of that, and I'm a better man
For all the time it takes

You'd think I'd know by now
You'd think I'd wash this down
Did you think I'd hurt her now
Just to heal my heart
Did you think I'd know by now
Did you think I'd wash this down
Did you think I'd hurt her now
Just to heal my heart
Then you don't know me
You don't know me
You don't know me
And she don't owe me anything

    General CommentThis song, to me, is about a guy who was screwed over by a girl while they were dating, she always used him up and spit him out.

    She's come back into his life in one way or another, and he's in a position where he theoretically could hurt her, but as he states in the song, he would never do that. He loves her, even now, and he doesn't feel she owes him anything.

    He seems to have some hope deep down things may change for the better, that she WILL outgrow whatever is making her behave the way she does... but in the meantime, he'll wait, listen, and try to be a strong person in the face of all that's gone on.

    I think it's a great anthem for the kind of person who always finds themselves in the "shoulder to cry on" role in life. Turning the other cheek can be a fine art. :P

    General Commentkick ass song, the most important part i think is "did you think i'd hurt her now just to heal my heart", i think this is about a person who loves another person but just can't tell them and now maybe there's a risk in telling the other person whatever it may be that they want to get off their chest
