Step lightly from the ledge, babe
Step lightly on the ground
I’m not the one you want, babe
I’ll only let your 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.

Chorus

Go melt back into the night
Everything inside is made of stone
There’s nothing in here moving
An’ anyway I’m not alone
You say you’re looking 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 you life an’ nothing more.
