You Don't Know Me

I feel pretty happy
for someone who's so sad
I'd try to explain it
but it all comes out bad
the truth is distance
is the thing that you crave
so don't come closer
I've got nothing to give away

You don't know me
you don't owe me anything
you don't know me, so stop pretending
this isn't over, when it's been over for days
you don't know me, so you can walk away

I'm awfully decided
for someone indecisive
I've gotten so tired
on the giving side of things
I'm in control of myself
doesn't mean I don't feel
the emotions are there
I just coat them in steel

You don't know me
you don't owe me anything
you don't know me, so stop pretending
this isn't over when it's been over for days
you don't know me, so you can walk away

It's not that I don't love you
'cause I do so very badly
in fact the problem is I love you
oh so very fucking madly
I don't think you're ready
for a love quite like mine
though you're giving me all you can
it's still wasting my time

You don't know me
you don't owe me anything
you don't know me, so stop pretending
this isn't over when it's been over for days
you don't know me, so you can walk away
