It Ain’t Me

After It Ain’t Me, Babe By Bob Dylan

 

Your way from your window

Has got you looking at me

But I’m not the one you want, babe

I am not the one you need

You say you’re lookin’ for someone

Who’s never weak but always strong

To protect you and sustain you

To always know right from 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.

 

Go lightly from this ledge, babe

Go lightly and find the ground

I’m not the one you want, babe

That would only drag us down

You say you’re lookin’ for someone

Who will promise never to part

Someone whose eyes are always on you

Someone to live in your heart

Someone who will die with you and more

But it ain’t me, babe

No, no, no, it ain’t me babe

It ain’t me you’re lookin’ for.

 

Go back and face your dark night

Till everything inside’s made of stone

Till there’s nothing in there moving

Till you know you’re all alone

You say you’re looking for the One

Who’ll pick you up each time you fall

Whose love showers you constantly

Who will come each time you call

The Beloved of your life and so much more

Who’ll set you free, babe

Oh, oh, oh, He’ll set you free, babe

And it’s free you’re lookin’ for, babe.
