  • I got a notion to say what doesn't feel right
    Got an answer in your story today
    It gave me a sign that didn't feel right, no

    So don't knock it, don't knock it, you've been here before
    So don't knock it, don't knock it, you've been here before

    I just wanted to know if I could go home
    Been rambling in day after day
    And everyone says I don't know

    So don't knock it, don't knock it, you've been here before
    So don't knock it, don't knock it, you've been here before

    Got a notion to say what doesn't feel right
    I just wanted to know if I could go home

    So don't knock it, don't knock it, you've been here before
    So don't knock it, don't knock it, you've been here before

    So don't knock it, don't knock it
    So don't knock it, don't knock it

    So don't knock it, don't knock it, you've been here before
    So don't knock it, don't knock it, you've been here before Writer/s: Caleb Followill, Jared Followill, Matthew Followill, Nathan Followill

  • Keyla965 from Orlando, Afghanistani honestly dont care wat the song means i just know that Caleb has one of the most beutiful voices EVER
  • Hayli from Willis, TxReply to Chris' comment - Song facts are just was they say 'SONG FACTS' they gather the information about a particular song and post it... it's not an opinion.

    You described everything from the Notion's video... not all music videos are made exactly what the song is really about. It's just a directors take on the song. I could write a song about a gold fish swimming underwater or something and a director would film the video like it was a love story.... So you can't base a songs meaning by the video.

    It's totally cool that that is what Notion means to you... but Song Facts is about what the song meant to the artist when they wrote it.

    Again, they are 'facts'
  • Chris from Hamilton, OnHello, i didnt agree with the song fact. I felt that notion was about a drug and social problem, facing the brick wall and walking against people. To the wall blowing up and pushing people out of the way. Still love the song this is my notion.
