Lyrics
Mind is wandering it is pondering in this cheap cafe
Writing poetry so thoughtlessly, mental fabric frayed
Smoking cigarettes, trying to forget, while my lungs decay
I'm wondering what you'd say

But you don't know me
and I wish you did
But You don't know me
uh la la la la
Don't know me
and i wish you did
But you don't know me
uh la la la la

And there you are like a rising star so heroically
And I'm a silhouette that you forget, I am stale whipped cream
Just a courtesan on a baby grand in your periphery
that you no longer need

Cos you don't know me
but I wish you did
But You don't know me
uh la la la la
Don't know me
and i wish you did
But you don't know me
uh la la la la

Night after night
I sing pain and pride on this seasoned stage
I'm invisble, inaudible princess of rage
You don't see the scars or feel the bars of my golden cage
You just turn the page

Cos you don't know me
and I wish you did
But You don't know me
uh la la la la
Don't know me
and i wish you did
But you don't know me
uh la la la la

Don't know me
and I wish you did
But You don't know me
uh la la la la
Don't know me
and i wish you did
But you don't know me
uh la la la la

Nice internal rhymes
I really like the internal rhymes, the rhythms of your lines. Your vocals are always superb pop vocals. The backing accompaniment continuum has an interesting lo-fi feel which seems a tad at odds with the vocabulary used in the lyrics, gives the track a demo feel. This song would be very refreshing on an album or pop playlist. I wanted the arrangement to both cool out more and explode into a manic exuberance, to give the track more change of density and pacing, or maybe a bridge that suggested a strategy in which "you" can get to know "me" better; but truly enjoyed it nonetheless. Thanks for continuing to share your stuff here.

Nice song
A great vocal performance as usual from you. The production levels are too hot, though. Plenty of clipping pretty obvious on my gear.

Vocals shine
as I would expect. I agree with Tobin.. The sound bed is sort of in contrast with the song... I wanted it to smooth out too. But still a killer tune!

Well crafted,
you call that "pop mainstream"?
Very well sung, production top notch (although I`m not a fan of too much compression).

Very nice!
A good, solid catchy pop tune. You have a terrific voice and it really shines. Sometimes it seems as if the vocals get buried in the mix. Don't know if that's the mix or my headphones. Still, a great, energetic tune.

Better than Taylor Swift or Miley Cyrus for sure!!!
This was a very refreshing, invigorating song to listen. The lilting rhythm made me feel light on my feet and got me nodding my head to its tempo. Wow, you sound pro and the arrangement itself is simple yet well mixed and mastered. I'd like to see you perform live if ever you come to Minneapolis.

Pure pop goodness; EVERYBODY CLICK HERE!!
Great lyrical painting going on, nice use of that digi-distortion and the mix overall. You're serious about this! Great pitch and thankfully I don't hear auto-tune doing all (or any) of the work here. This is pure pop goodness, sister.

And with that, I'll add that I have a new favorite artist on the first listen--I know you're going to have lots of consistently solid "hits" in your repertoire. Thanks!

I don't know you
But I wish I did...
Mainstream pop is not my thing but I recognize that you have talent. Your vocals are
excellent, and nicely produced. The song is well arranged with all the little catchy
quirky things good pop songs possess. Now I am going to go listen to some of your
other work.

Nice job - good luck with the album, and thanks for sharing this with us.
