It Ain't Me, Babe

"I’m not the one you want, babe
 
I’m not the one you need
..."

It's funny how realization about the important things in life sometimes hits us as out of nowhere... We hear a song, cry in the darkness and... that's it: our lives change forever.
And now here goes one of those life-changing song, It Ain't Me Babe by Bob Dylan:


And the lyrics:

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
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 will only let you down
You say you’re lookin’ for someone
Who will 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, it ain’t me, babe
It ain’t me you’re lookin’ for, babe
Go melt back into the night, babe
Everything inside is made of stone

There’s nothing in here moving
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’ 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...
