Nobody Knows was written by Pink and Billy Mann and released as the fourth single from I’m Not Dead in November 2006 with the B-side Words.
Nobody Knows is a ballad which deals with feelings of depression and loneliness.
Released in November 2006 in the UK, Nobody Knows only peaked at number 27 on the Singles Chart, Pink’s lowest peaking single at the time and the first I’m Not Dead single to miss the top ten.
The song was released in January 2007 in Australia where it also peaked at number 27 on the ARIA Singles Chart.
Nobody Knows reached number 17 in Germany and number 74 on the Eurochart Hot 100 Singles chart. Although it reached the top 40 on the majority of charts on which it appeared, it was not as successful as the album’s preceding singles. In Canada the song was released to radio in mid-January shortly after the success of U + Ur Hand.

The music video was shot in London by director Jake Nava. The first scene features Pink in a hotel room (shot in The May Fair hotel) staring out of a window to London at night, that changes to sunrise. She then watches TV but finds there’s hardly anything on apart from a melting snowman and puts her head under her pillow before accessing her laptop computer. During the video she messes up the room by throwing everything around, and she is later seen sitting in the fetal position in a shower. Another scene shows Pink walking down a street, past a couple in love and some drunken men. The video ends with Pink singing to an empty auditorium, pretending to do a real performance.
