You Don't Know Me
by Chuck

You see that I’m alone
You see that I steal
But you don’t know me.

You would know me if
You knew how hard it was to live alone
You knew how love has hurt me
You knew your mom didn’t love you.

You see that I smoke
You see that I fight
But you don’t know me.

You would know me if
You knew how I turn emotions to haze
You knew how I don’t fear death
You knew how tucked in the corner was sadness.
