You Don’t Know Lyrics

[Verse 1: Katelyn Tarver]
I know you've got the best intentions
Just trying to find the right words to say
I promise I've already learned my lesson
But right now, I wanna be not okay

[Pre-Chorus: Katelyn Tarver]
I'm so tired, sitting here waiting
If I hear one more "Just be patient"
It's always gonna stay the same

[Chorus: Katelyn Tarver]
So let me just give up
So let me just let go
If this isn't good for me
Well, I don't wanna know
Let me just stop trying
Let me just stop fighting
I don't want your good advice
Or reasons why I'm alright

[Refrain: Katelyn Tarver]
You don't know what it's like
You don't know what it's like

[Verse 2: Katelyn Tarver]
Can't stop these feet from sinking
And it's starting to show on me
You're staring while I'm blinking
But just don't tell me what you see

[Pre-Chorus: Katelyn Tarver]
I'm so over all this bad luck
Hearing one more "Keep your head up"
Is it ever gonna change?

[Chorus: Katelyn Tarver]
So let me just give up
So let me just let go
If this isn't good for me
Well, I don't wanna know
Let me just stop trying
Let me just stop fighting
I don't want your good advice
Or reasons why I'm alright

[Refrain: Katelyn Tarver]
You don't know what it's like
You don't know what it's like

[Bridge: Katelyn Tarver]
Don't look at me like that
Just like you understand
Don't try to pull me back

[Chorus: Katelyn Tarver]
Let me just give up
Let me just let go
If this isn't good for me
Well, I don't wanna know
Let me just stop trying
Let me just stop fighting
I don't want your good advice
Or reasons why I'm alright

[Outro: Katelyn Tarver]
You don't know what it's like
You don't know what it's like
You don't know, you don't know, you don't know
You don't know what it's like
You don't know what it's like
You don't know, you don't know
You don't know what it's like
You don't know what it's like
