Hyman, Phyllis - You Just Don't Know Lyrics




Do... do... ooh...

You just don't know what I've been going through
You just don't know how I've been missing you
You just don't know how glad I am that you're back
You just don't know, you just don't know

You just don't know all these tears I've cried
You just don't know how I feel inside
You just don't know how good it feels to have you back

Sitting by the telephone
Waiting for your call
I ain't had a loving since you've been gone
Baby come and hold me, and never let me go
Let me show you how I missed you
Let me give you all my love

You just don't know what I've been going through
You just don't know how I've been missing you
You just don't know how good it feels to have you back

You cannot imagine
Imagine what it's like
Planning all my evenings by the TV Guide
Wishing you were with me to love the night away
Let me show you how I missed you
Let me give you all my love

You just don't know what I've been going through
You just don't know how I've been missing you
You just don't know how glad I am that you're home
You just don't know, you just don't know

You don't know what it feels like to be lonely
Wanting me there, you're my one and only
You don't know how good it feels to have you back
You just don't know, you just don't know

You don't know what it feels like to be crying
I felt like, I felt like I was dying
You don't know how good it is to have you back
You just don't know, you just don't know

You just don't know what I've been going through
You just don't know how I've been missing you
You just don't know how glad I am that you're home
You just don't know, you just don't know
...

    You Just Don't Know
    Phyllis Hyman
    Do... Do... ooh...
    You just don't know what I've been going through
    You just don't know how I've been missing you
    You just don't know how glad I am that you're back
    You just don't know, you just don't know
    You just don't know all these tears I've cried
    You just don't know how I feel inside
    You just don't know how good it feels to have you back
    Sitting by the telephone
    Waiting for your call
    I ain't had a loving since you've been gone
    Baby come and hold me, and never let me go
    Let me show you how I missed you
    Let me give you all my love
    You just don't know what I've been going through
    You just don't know how I've been missing you
    You just don't know how good it feels to have you back
    You cannot imagine
    Imagine what it's like
    Planning all my evenings by the TV Guide
    Wishing you were with me to love the night away
    Let me show you how I missed you
    Let me give you all my love
    You just don't know what I've been going through

    You don't know how good it feels to have you back
    You just don't know, you just don't know
    You don't know what it feels like to be crying
    I felt like, I felt like I was dying
    You don't know how good it is to have you back
    You just don't know, you just don't know
    You just don't know what I've been going through
    You just don't know how I've been missing you
    You just don't know how glad I am that you're home
    You just don't know, you just don't know

  73. stephanie braxton

    We neeed this kind of sangin' today ... so much emotion and gut-wrenching pain and joy that you the listener feel it so much so that it conjures up all those raw feelings you thought you let go of .... some times hard to listen to yet cathartic as well ... sigh !

  74. gerald deyounge

    As if she sings in the middle of the universe........ Now she does. Rest in peace my darling.

  75. Stormy D.

    She said that album cover and parts of that video were shot in some dudes apartment and although she liked the results she didn't like the apartment as it was "too stark" and "not my taste". She said that after a concert in the early 90s and some guy came all the way from Amsterdam and had a full size poster of that Living All Alone promo for an autograph and she said "Oh, I love this, I haven't seen one in years and I don't have anymore left" then some assistant piped in and said "Yes, you do. There's a whole box of them under your bed". To which she replied, "Oh, well thanks for letting me know". Trivia.....

    Truintell

  89. lil me

    she just dnt know how much I dug her music since 1978

  90. Andre Knoxon

    srong god gifted voice

  91. MZAPF07

    Now when if a movie is made on her Ke Ke Wyatt should get the role. I love my old school jams over this crazy music of today!

    III

    better chords, more honesty back then, ..today there's just no filter, so anyone w/ a touch of work ethic cough Bey..is treated like a Goddess
    few actual authentic singer-songwriters left, there's SIA, Adele..then youve gotta go to Bruno, Pharrell..that's about it for today's R&B

    Isabela Yarbrough

    Which sister?

    Juanita Martin

    You know something? I LOVE Phyllis Hyman - I grew up on her music, so I'm jaded and hard pressed to find anyone who is comparable to sing her songs. But, as bat-shit crazy as Keke Wyatt is, she could DEFINITELY pull off a Phyllis Hyman movie. Her vocals are on par, and I believe she would do Phyllis justice.

    Cass L

    Give Keke some acting lessons now to groom and prepare her .

    uknow who

    She's too silly

  92. KevinWhittingtonAka Marvilloso

    I sampled this sample

  93. Russell Regan

    Living all alone was a great CD

  94. Pamela Bostick

    she speaks Heart in her music...Beautiful woman inside & Out

    albert Hartman

    U right baby

  95. P Branson

    Phyllis Hyman was sent to teach us what we ALL will feel & experience in life.

  96. Kisha Williams

    I wish she knew how much people really did loved her RIH

    Star Baby

    @Susie Dean yes depression no joke!

    Elle Class

    Exactly...I like her music. Her situation was ironic.

    John Harris

    You just don know how much we miss u Phylli.

    @III THE LIGHT OF JESUS IS NOT IN Everyone, BECAUSE IF IT WAS there would be a lot less mayhem, And a lot more accountability. JESUS IS THE LIGHT OF The World, everything else is wicked, and a wolf in sheep's clothing. ASK GOD FOR FORGIVENESS of your sins, AND THAT You ACCEPT JESUS CHRIST AS your LORD AND SAVIOR BECAUSE you WANT TO BE BORN AGAIN. John3:3.

    jarocla66

    Back in those days it was real love and, real loneliness as much as you can love strong you could be lonely strong, it wasn't no Instagram and hoeing around, Phyllis Hyman was a lady that many men would have gave her the love she did come in the hub she need and the conversations and the phone calls and the dinners, this lady was a prize, but she wanted to obsess over one person, that was her downfall,

  97. JR lloyd

    man when my sister put me on to her i fell in live with her an was davastated when she killed her self smh right now you just dnt know

  98. Noel Montgomery

    She is the original of her kind. I miss her emotions that she gave in her music. I felt the pain and the joy. RIP Phyllis

  99. David Richardson

    The magic, the sound of Philadelphia, the greatest music community in America.
    The list is endless and still growing, John Coltrane was raised in Philly so was the
    Heath Brothers, Benny Golson, Lee Morgan, Bobby Timmons, Ray Bryant, Thom Bell,
    Bahamadia, Jill Scott, Black Thought, Amel Larrieux, Dee Dee Sharp, Barbara Mason,
    The Delphonics,Phyllis Hyman, MFSB and many more. Salute Philadelphia.
