lyrics

You're not my baby
You're not my own
When I hold you, you be like stone
Little body sinks into mine
I'll be your nest for a short time

Fingers curled across my breast
Lay your head down to rest
You're someone else's breath of air
You are their blood, their skin, their hair

Oooh
You are not mine
You are not mine
You're just a moment passing by

Cradle rockin' with history
There's a rhyme that sits in three
What be your downfall
when the bough breaks?
We all fall down when love forsakes

Oooh
You are not mine
You are not mine
You're just a moment passing by

You're not my baby
You're not my own
When I hold you, you be like stone
Little body sinks into mine
I'll be your nest for a short time
I'll be your nest for a short time
