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 looking for someone
Who's never weak but always strong
To protect you and defend you
Whether you are right or wrong â??

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 looking 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 looking for someone
Who'll promise never to part â??
Someone to close his eyes to you â??
Someone to close his heart â??

Someone to die for you and more,
But it ain't me babe;
No, no, no, it ain't me babe;
It ain't me you're looking for, babe.

You say you're looking for someone
To pick you up each time you fall,
To gather flowers constantly
And to come each time you call

And will love you 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 looking for, babe.
