No one can sometimes comfort the pain we feel when we go through a breakup. Friends can surround us and say good things to us, but it’s not enough. They even get to the point where they say some bad things about the person you love for you to feel good. But, saying bad things about that person will not help you get over them. People cannot say anything bad about the person you love because they don’t know what happened in your relationship and how close you were with that person.

The Story Behind the Song
Gilbert writes songs that are only based on his own experiences. This song he wrote was when he was going through a breakup, and his friends were comforting him. His friends told him to get over her, and he didn’t like the way they comforted him. He feels like they never understood him because she was not only his girlfriend but she was also his best friend. Therefore he wrote this song for people who don’t understand people who go through a tough breakup like his.
About “You Don’t Know Her Like I Do”
When you break up with someone whom you treated as your best friend, it’s going to hurt more than you’ll ever think. It’s not just the memories of being together that hurts but everything you shared with each other. A relationship built with friendship is something that is not easy to forget or throw away. That is why before asking someone to get over somebody, remember first how that person feels.
