"You Don't Know Me" as written by Tim Nielsen and Kevin Gerard Kinney....
You don't even know me
You say that I'm not living right
You don't understand me
So why do you judge my life?

I don't ask for nothing
I'm always holding my own
Every time I turn around, there's something
People talking 'bout what they don't know

And when I try to move on up
They're always pullin' me down
I'm tired and I had enough
It's my life, and I'm living it now

You don't even know me
You say that I'm not living right
You don't understand me
So why do you judge my life?

I always wonder why people try to hurt me
No happiness in their own lives
So they act out all their jealousy
Who are you to say that I'm living wrong?

Always telling me what to do
I decided that I gotta be strong
What makes you think that I needed you?
You don't know me

You don't even know me
You say that I'm not livin' right
You don't understand me
So why do you judge my life

You don't even know me
You say that I'm not living right
You don't understand me
So why do you judge my life?

Who are you?
You say I'm not livin' right
Anything I try to do
You haven't walked in my shoes

I'm gonna move on
It's my life, it's my life
It's my life, it's my life
It's my life, it's my life

Ah

You don't even know me
You say that I'm not living right
You don't understand me
So why do you judge my life?

You don't even know me
You say that I'm not living right
You don't understand me
So why do you judge my life?

You don't even know me
