Not My Slave Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

With sadness in my heart and joy in my mind
I thought about the ghosts that we've left behind
With everyone around telling us what to do
With deafening sound whisper I love you

The fire in your eyes, may it never go out
The sweetness of your tears make it feel like night
I see no escape from the roles we always play
What do we have to prove on this judgment day?

And you're mine now but you're not my sister
And you're mine now but you're not my slave
And you're mine but you're not my child
And you're mine now but you're not my slave

You're missin' the whole point, you're not my little pet
Don't throw away your life, the game's not over yet
I do not own your soul, don't want you in a cage
I only want your heart to find that special place

You're missin' the whole point, you're not my little pet
Don't throw away your life, the game's not over

You're mine but you're not my sister
You're mine now but you're not my slave
You're mine but you're not my child
You're mine now but you're not my slave
You're mine now but you're not my slave

With sand in my heart and clouds in my head
I thought about us both and the lives we've led
From pages in a book and pictures on a screen
We make ourselves like clay from someone else's dream

One second you are cast just like stones at my feet
But I am not a King please don't worship me
With everyone around telling us what to do
With deafening sound whisper I love you

You're missing the whole point, you're not my little pet
Don't throw away your life, the game's not over yet
I do not own your soul, don't want you in a cage
I only want your heart to find that special place

You're mine now but you're not my sister
You're mine now but you're not my slave
You're mine now but you're not my child
You're mine now but you're not my slave

You're mine now but you're not my sister
You're mine now but you're not my slave
You're mine but you're not my child
You're mine now but you're not my slave

You're mine now but you're not my slave
You're mine now but you're not my slave
Ooh, but you're not my slave
