  1. You Don't Know Me

From the recording In The World

Lyrics

Your voice, it was the first voice that I heard
Deep and strong and I hung on every word
Echoed lessons throughout my life
They cut me like a knife
I didn’t do Harvard and I can’t find Yale
‘Cause I’m not looking for that Holy Grail
 
Chorus:
But you don’t know me, I should make you very proud
I’m not some little girl, just lost out in the crowd
but you don’t trust me, to take care of myself
I may not suit you, but I won’t be someone else
‘Cause you don’t know me
No you don’t know me
 
The one I love doesn’t fit your style
He don’t have money, or a 3-piece suit and tie
But he loves me like no other can
You don’t give a damn
You don’t approve of my house or job
My clothes, my hair or my blah, blah, blah
 
Chorus:
But you don’t know me, I should make you very proud
I’m not some little girl, just lost out in the crowd
No you don’t trust me, to take care of myself
I may not suit you, but I won’t be someone else
‘Cause you don’t know me
No you don’t know me
 
Bridge
I’m not one of your people
You can’t force me in a mold
I won’t do what I’m told
 
Chorus:
You don’t know me, I should make you very proud
I’m not some little girl, just lost out in the crowd
I know you love me, even though you make me mad
I’m still your daughter, you’ll always be my dad
But you don’t know me
No you don’t know me
