Snarky Puppy – I'm Not The One lyrics
[Verse 1]
You said I wasn't ready to build a home
Cause I ain't your servant baby
You said I was selfish and always gone with my friends
Cause living with you drove me crazy

[Pre-Chorus]
Now if you want a little toy
Or a pet to spend your day with boy
Just know that I am not the perfect person for the role

[Chorus]
I ain't your mom
I ain't your sis
I ain't your kin
And I'll never be
I ain't your shrink
I'm just a kind of girl that you can't handle
I ain't your slave
I won't behave
Not here to save you
I'll never be
I ain't your scape goat
If you think you can put this all on me
Better know I'm not the one


[Verse 2]
You said that I wasn't there for you
Didn't sustain you
But how could I have done this baby
You couldn't trust yourself
Couldn't love yourself
Couldn't even respect yourself
My love wasn't enough baby

[Pre-Chorus]
I paid cause you were insecure
So now I'm wondering who's the whore
The more I think about it
I realize that wasn't my role

[Chorus]
I ain't your mom
I ain't your sis
I ain't your kin
And I'll never be
I ain't your shrink
I'm just a kind of girl that you can't handle
I ain't your slave
I won't behave
Not here to save you
I'll never be
I ain't your scape goat
If you think you can put this all on me
Better know I'm not the one


[Bridge]
Although we were living in hell I know we loved each other
I just couldn't afford to pay the price with my sanity
The darkest sides of us were shinned upon when we were together
So now I need to be closer to the light
Don't hold me back I don't wanna fight anymore

[Guitar Solo]

[Outro (x4)]
I'm not your mom your sis your kin your shrink your pet your toy your slave I'm not the one
