Mickey Gilley - You Don't Know Me Lyrics

 

You give your hand to me and then you say hello

And 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 dreams of you at night

And longs to kiss your lips and longs to hold you tight

To you I'm just a friend, that's all I've ever been

You don't know me

For I never knew the art of making love

Though 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 that lucky guy

You'll never, never know the one that loves you so

You don't know me

I never knew the art of making love

Though my heart aches with love for you

Afraid and shy I let my chance go by

The chance that you might have loved me too

You give your hand to me and then you say goodbye

I watch you walk away beside that lucky guy

You'll never, never know the one that loves you so

You don't know me

You'll never, never know the one that loves you so

You don't know me
