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 an' defend you
Whether you are right or wrong
Someone to open each and every door

But it ain't me, babe
No, no, no, it ain't me, babe
It ain't me you're lookin' for, babe

Go lightly from the ledge, babe
Go lightly on the ground
I'm not the one you want, babe
I'll only let you down

You say you're lookin' for someone
Who'll promise never to part
Someone to close his eyes for you
Someone to close his heart
Someone who will die for you and more

But it still ain't me, babe
No, no, no, it sure ain't me, babe
It ain't me you're lookin' for, babe

Go, melt back into the night
Everything inside is made of stone
There's nothing in here moving
An' anyway I'm not alone

You say you're looking for someone
Who'll pick you up at a time you fall
To gather flowers constantly
And tocome at a 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
It ain't me you're lookin' for, babe
