Verse 2:

Go lightly from the ledge, babe

Go lightly on the ground
I'm not the one you want, babe
I'll only lead you down
You say you're lookin' for someone
Who'll promise never to part
Someone to close his eyes to you
Someone to close his heart
Someone who will die for you and more

[repeat chorus]

No it ain't me you're lookin' for, babe
C D G
I said a-no, no, no, it ain't me babe [repeat to fade]
