You Don’t Know Me At All

So you think you know me from little things I have said or because you’ve known me for what you deem to be ‘long enough’. I will tell you now, it will NEVER be long enough…

I wanna ask you –
Do you ever sit and wonder,
It’s so strange
That we could be together for
So long, & never know, never care
What goes on in the other one’s head?
 
Things I’ve felt but I’ve never said
You said things that I never said
So I’ll say something that I should have said long ago:
 
You don’t know me
You don’t know me at all
You don’t know me
You don’t know me at all
 
You could have just propped me up
On the table like a mannequin
Or a cardboard stand-up & paint me
Any face that you wanted me
To be seen.
We’re damned by the existential moment where
We saw the couple in the coma &
It was we were the cliche,
But we carried on anyway.
 
So, sure, I could just close my eyes.
Yeah, sure, trace and memorize,
But can you go back once you know
 
You don’t know me
You don’t know me at all
You don’t know me
You don’t know me at all
 
If I’m the person that you think I am
Clueless chump you seem to think I am
So easily led astray,
An errant dog who occasionally escapes and needs a shorter leash, then
Why the fuck would you want me back?
 
Maybe it’s because
You don’t know me at all
