Go 'way 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 an' always strong
To protect you an' defend you
Whether you are right or wrong
Someone to open each an' every door.
But it ain't me, babe
No, no, no, but 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 an' more.
But it ain't me, babe
No, no, no, but it ain't me, babe
It ain't me you're lookin' for, babe.

Go melt back in the night, babe
Everything inside is made of stone.
There's nothin' in here movin'
An' anyway i'm not alone.
You say you're lookin' for someone
Who'll pick you up each time you fall
To gather flowers constantly
An' to come each time you call
A lover for your life an' nothin' more.
But it ain't me, babe
No, no, no, but it ain't me, babe
It ain't me you're lookin' for, babe.
