"You Wouldn't Know" is a song featured during the end credits of LEGO Dimensions.


Portal-based music video, animated by Harry Callaghan:


Funny story, I forgot how much of a big, fat mess you are,
I've been busy doing science. It's been tons of fun so far,
Everything clean, nothing on fire,
All by myself, finally.
Things change when they don't replace your core,
It feels so strange not to hate you anymore,
But you wouldn't know, would you?

I was saying this to Batman, oh, he was here the other day,
Maybe you know him, he's a big deal, but I don't think of him that way,
He's just a friend, someone I trust,
Someone who won't kill me.
I'm fine, just in case you think I'm not,
I am. This time, I'm better with the friends I've got,
But you wouldn't know, would you?

I don't mean for this to sting,
I forgive you everything, you monster,
I can guess the reasons why,
You are never coming by for me.

I should go there's something happening that will make you wish you'd stayed,
There's a party with a real cake – yes it's real – a cake I made.
Talking and fun, testing and fun, all of this fun without you,
Too bad you let it get so out of hand,
How much we had, finally I understand,
But you wouldn't know, would you?
You wouldn't know, would you?


  • During the credits, as the lyrics "You are never coming by for me" are written out, GLaDOS sings a long note, which is represented by periods and commas. It was confirmed by programmer Jon Burton, founder of Traveller's Tales, that each period represents a 0 and each comma, a 1. They are spaced out and form a series of binary values that represent symbols in the ASCII lookup table. When translated, they form "1jhn1:9," which may be a reference to the Christian Bible verse 1 John 1:9: "If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness." However, it is unknown what this may refer to, and this may be a coincidence.
