You Don't Wanna Know

Album: Heaven in this Hell (2013)
  • Orianthi wrote this song in Nashville with Zac Maloy (Carrie Underwood's "Temporary Home") and Clint Lagerberg (Rascal Flatts' "Here Comes Goodbye.") She recalled to "I had the riff, and then we came up with the lyrics about this guy who's cheating. But then there's the girl who's doing the same thing, so it's kind of like a 'How would you feel if you found out?' bit of a story."
  • That's Orianthi playing the banjo. She told MusicRadar: "I've picked one up before and mucked around with it, but I never tried to play it seriously. I added banjo to give the song a bit of texture, and it worked."
