Nobody Knows Me

Lyrics Print lyrics

I've had so many lives

Since I was a child

And I realised

How many times I've died

 

I'm not that kind of guy

Sometimes I feel shy

I think I can fly

Closer to the sky

 

No one's telling you how to live your life

But it's a setup until you're fed up

This world is not so kind

People trap your mind

It's so hard to find

Someone to admire

 

I sleep much better at night

I feel closer to the light

Now I'm gonna try

To improve my life

 

No one's telling you how to live your life

But it's a setup until you're fed up

It's no good when you're misunderstood

But why should I care

What the world thinks of me

Won't let a stranger

Give me a social disease

Nobody, nobody knows me

Nobody knows me

Nobody knows me

Like you know me

Nobody knows me

Nobody knows me

Nobody knows me

Like you know me

 

No one's telling me how to live my life

But it's a setup, and I'm just fed up

It's no good when you're misunderstood

But why should I care

What the world thinks of me

Won't let a stranger

Give me a social disease

 

I don't want no lies

I don't watch TV

I don't waste my time

Won't read a magazine

I don't want no lies

I don't watch TV

I don't waste my time

Won't read a magazine

 

I sleep much better at night

I feel closer to the light

Now I'm gonna try

To improve my life

 

Nobody, nobody, nobody, nobody knows me

Nobody knows me

Nobody knows me

Like you know me

Nobody knows me (It's no fun but the damage is done)

Nobody knows me

Nobody knows me (Don't want your social disease)

Like, like you know me

Like you know me

Like you know me

Like you know me (Don't want your social disease)

Like you know me

 

Nobody knows me (I don't want no lies)

Nobody knows me (I don't watch TV)

Nobody knows me (I don't waste my time)

Like you know me (Won't read a magazine)

 

Nobody knows me (I don't want no lies)

Nobody knows me (I don't watch TV)

Nobody knows me (I don't waste my time)

Like you know me (Won't read a magazine)

(Don't want your social disease)

Song

Nobody Knows Me is the experimental dance track on the album. Even without a single release, it was obvious that it would get many remixes. It was mixed by Above & Beyond, Mount Sims and Peter Rauhofer. Three of them featured as a bonus on the Nothing Fails maxi-single and one on the EP Remixed & Revisited. The Nobody Knows Me remixes stormed up the Hot Dance / Club Play chart, peaking at #4.

Tour

Nobody Knows Me @ Re-Invention TourNobody Knows Me followed after the Re-Invention Tour opener Vogue, in a dance version that excelled the album version. Alone on stage, Madonna danced while walking on a conveyor belt. One moment she was hanging down an uplifted stage towards the crowd, the other she was laying down on the conveyor belt, fighting the stream, trying "to improve my life". The choreography was so catchy and in a way it reminded me of the Impressive Instant performance on the Drowned World Tour.
