Go away from my window, leave at your own chosen speed
I'm not the one you want babe,
I'm not the one you need
You say you're lookin' for someone who's never weak,
But always strong
To protect you and defend you whether you are right or wrong
Someone to open each and every door...

Chorus:
But it ain't me babe, no, no, no
It ain't me babe, it ain't me you're looking for.

Go lightly from the ledge babe, go lightly on the ground
I'm not the one you want babe; I'd only let you down.
You say you're lookin' for someone
Who will promise never to part
Someome to close his eyes for you,
Someone to close his heart
Someone to die for you and more

(Chorus)

Go melt back in the night babe,
'cause everything inside is made of stone
There's nothin' in here moving, and anyway I'm not alone
You say you're lookin' for someone
To pick you up each time you fall
To gather flowers constantly and to come each time you call
A lover for your life and nothing more.

But it ain't me babe, no, no, no
It ain't me babe, no, no, no
It ain't me babe, it ain't me you're looking for.

It ain't me babe, no, no, no
It ain't me babe, it ain't me you're looking for...babe
