Riff: The Internet – “You Don’t Even Know”

Sep 24, 2013

You’re beautiful, you brighten up my day/And when your skin touches mine/I get goosebumps right away/But you don’t even know

from You Don't Even Know lyrics by The Internet

There’s a way to be sexy without jeopardizing self-respect, and there’s a way to express infatuation without looking like a creep. Syd does both as she skilfully illustrates the sort of blissful pain that comes from secret admiration – one that leaves her breathless at every turn; [LISTEN].
