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 only let you down

You say you're lookin' for someone
Who promise never to part
Someone to close his eyes to you
Someone to close his heart

Someone to 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

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

An' to love 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

    General CommentI almost died when I heard they covered Bob Dylan.
    I wanted to die.

    Just no.

    General Commentthis is actually an old johnny cash song.
    i'm pretty sure they picked it because chad's favorite movie is walk the line, and he really loves johnny cash.
    i think they did a really amazing cover of this song, and sherri's voice sounds as beautiful as ever!! i love when she sings with jordan. (alas, none more again)

    General CommentI love this song! Johnny Cash was a great country singer. To me, this song is basically the doubts you have about yourself - you're saying to the other person that you're not good enough for them, that you'll only let them down.
