We're Strangers

October 24, 2009

I don’t think you know me,
Even though you say you do,
I don’t you’ve seen me,
Even though you know my eyes are blue,
I don’t think you’ve really talked to me,
‘Cause every conversation’s been about you,
So don’t tell me what to do,
Don’t tell me what to say,
Don’t tell me who to be,
‘Cause you don’t know what’s in my heart,
On my mind,
Or how deep my soul can go,
And you haven’t seen me smile,

Seen me cry,

Or be all that I can be,
And you haven’t talked to me about my friends,

My family,

Yea you never listened to things that deep,
So if you don’t know me,
And you haven’t seen me,
And you’ve never talked to me before,
Then I don’t know you,
And I haven’t seen you,
And I’ve never talked to you before,

And momma always told me to keep away from strangers.
