    u don't understand me
    but yet in still you say u know me
    like the back of your hand..don't u see
    that even though u've KNOWN me for years
    there are still things u still fail 2 realize
    like those little drops of water falling from my eyes
    are called tears

    u want 2 analyze
    when all u have 2 do is listen
    i'm not a commercial...i don't advertise
    myself or my feelings on my sleeve
    u have 2 use ur mind..think 2 figure me out
    if u don't want 2 take the time..then take the door and leave

    people judge things they don't understand
    u know but u don't understand cuz u've judged me
    i have yet 2 judge u but u say my head is tha one in da sand
    u judge on what u know and see not what u've experienced
    i judge on what i feel cuz i understand pain and happiness
    u don't get it.u don't try..u're not even serious
    u're ashamed 2 admit that maybe.just maybe u're prejudice

    i'm understanding it now
    u, passersby, friends, strangers
    the WORLD don't want 2 understand me
    u're satisfied with just knowing me
    and everyone knows me, but few understand me
