Lyrics

I've been tried
And I've been tested
I was born tired
And I never got rested
Harder than Marble stone
I'm better off Better off left alone

Cause I'm not the one
No I'm not the one
You wanted it all
But I'll give you none
Cause, I'm not the one

Well, like a toy
To a kid
I said jump
And mama you did
You know, your daddy knows
And your mama knows
That's wrong
So now it's time
For me to move on

Cause I'm not the one
No I'm not the one
You wanted it all
But I'll give you none
Cause, I'm not the one

You think
That I'm normal
But all these years
I'm just trying to warn you
You'd do good
To move on
No it won't
Hurt me none

Cause I'm not the one
No I'm not the one
You wanted it all
But I'll give you none
Cause, I'm not the one
