I've been up all night, you've been puttin' up a fight.
Seems like nothin' I say gets through.
How did this old bed fit a world between me and you.
We said "Goodnight" but the silence was so thick
You could cut it with a knife.
We've hit the wall again and there's nothin' I can do.
You're the one, yea, I've put all my trust in your hands.
C'mon and look in my eyes, here I am, here I am

You don't understand me, my baby.
You don't seem to know that I need you so much.
You don't understand me, my feelings,
The reason I'm breathin', my love

The mornin' comes and you're reaching out for me
Just like everything's the same
And I let myself believe things are gonna change.
When you kiss my mouth and you hold my body close,
Do you wonder who's inside?
Maybe there's no way we could feel each other's pain.
Tell me why it gets harder to know where I stand.
I guess loneliness found a new friend, here I am

You don't understand me

You don't seem to get me, my baby.
You don't really see that I live for your touch.
You don't understand me, my dreams or the things I believe in, my love.
You don't understand me. You don't understand me. Understand me.

    General CommentI think this song is about someone who is deeply in love with someone else. She has been dumped or both of them are having difficulty with the relationship and she is just saying to the other person that they love them so much and can't live without them.

    Song MeaningThis song vividly depicts a painful relationship for the part who truly loves and emotionally attached to the partner,who is oblivious to her unfulfilled needs and to her voice.
    The partner whose involvement in their relationship consists of receiving love without actually giving one doesn't listen nor willing to understand what shes going through and who she really is.
    Her voice and heart is out there in the void,unheard.
    She stands there in agony, in love,lonely too helpless to leave.
