Bolton, Michael - You Don't Know Me Lyrics

You give your hand to me
And then you say hello
I can hardly speak
My heart is beating so
And anyone can tell
You think you know me well
But you don't know me

No you don't know the one
Who thinks of you at night
And longs to kiss your lips
Longs to hold you tight
Oh I am just a friend
That's all I've ever been
Cause you don't know me

Well I never knew the art of making love
No my heart aches with love for you
Afraid and shy I let my chance go by
The chance that you might love me too

You give your hand to me
And then you say goodbye
I watch you walk away beside the lucky guy
Oh you will never know
The one who loves you so
Cause you don't know me

Afraid and shy I let my chance go by
The chance that you might love me too

You give your hand to me
And then you say goodbye
I watch you walk away beside the lucky guy
Oh you will never know
The one who loves you so
Cause you don't know me
No, you don't know me

    When so many people thinks they know you, including an asshole of a brother who would tell you this, while you're singing. Holy shit, no, you don't. Not even the one i thought was my bestfriend,. my twin knows me. Sigh. Thanks Michael for this song and its powerful message...

    Cher Monsieur Bolton
    Je vous apprécie en tant que tbon chanteur américain.
    Il y a un message sur votre site casino grande qui est signe de mon nom, usurpation d'identité et qui n est pas de moi.
    Pourriez vous gentillement
    Le retirer ( ce mot)
    Les autres tel qu anniversaire,mon avis sur une chanson sont
    De moi.
    Je ne fréquente plus votre milieu un peu bling pour moi
    J aime la vie,la campagne,l amour ,la musique,la lecture
    Mes gouts sont différents.
    Vous êtes normalement un homme sensé donc vous comprendrez.
    Je n' aime pas le hot,le porno,le trop superficiel.
    Et j ai eu de merveilleux boys Friends dans ma vie.

    Merci par avance de comprendre
    Je vous embrasse.

  95. Cyrus Shahrzad

    By far Michael Bolton convey the Ray's message the best way I have heard. 
    With his tones he adds the feelings of love that Ray wanted us to feel.

    Ângela Maria de Bastos

    Voz maravilhosa e uma música esplêndida,  combinação espetacular. Parabéns pela escolha


    @Cyrus Shahrzad Written by Cindy Walker and Eddie Arnold in 1955 and recorded by Mr. Arnold in 1956

    Egbert Souce

    stixk1.........You're sort of correct: Eddie Arnold had very little to do with writing this song--he had the title sitting around and gave it to Cindy Walker to write a song around. She did the rest and also recorded it around the same time as he did. Her ORIGINAL 1955/56 recording is galactically great, but had to be taken down from YT, several years ago, due to copyright issues. That version leaves every other cover (including Ray Charles) in the dust. Its a real shame that only those who have the original record, or a tape made from the original, can hear it, because you can't hear it on YOUTUBE any more. Her later, 1964 remake is still posted, but it doesn't compare, IMHO. 7-30-17

  96. Robbiesgranny

    I like this version the best by Michael Bolton.
