lyrics

if I said I mean the world to you
would you try to call me honey
I always thought I knew
I always thought I knew
I was a part of you
but now I know
no, I don't wanna be

I always thought I knew the pureness of your love
everytime you called me honey
but now the words you choose won't ever be enough
'cause what they mean will only burn me
'cause I don't wanna hear it this time
I don't wanna feel it this time

I don't wanna be your baby this time
I don't wanna feel this heartache
I don't wanna be your honey this time
I just wanna feel your heart on my side
no I don't wanna be

if I whisper words you haven't heard before
would you read my lips and help them
[and] if I said that I'm a stranger to your world
would you treat me like your best friend
could you ever show it this time
I really wanna know it this time

'cause I don't wanna be your baby this time
I don't wanna feel this heartache
I don't wanna be your honey this time
I just wanna feel your heart on my side

if I said that I will re-invent myself
and if I told you yesterday I was somebody else, well
would you listen to me
would you let me

'cause I don't wanna be your baby this time
I don't wanna feel this heartache
I don't wanna be your honey this time
I just wanna feel your heart on my side

no I don't wanna be your baby this time
I don't wanna feel this heartache
I don't wanna be your honey this time
I just wanna feel your heart on my side

I don't wanna be your baby this time
I don't wanna feel this heartache
I don't wanna be (your honey)
no no I don't wanna be (your honey)
no no (ooh, your baby this time)
(ooh, I don't wanna feel)
(ooh, no honey)
(ooh, no honey)
