Not My Slave Lyrics

Artist: Oingo Boingo
Album: Boi-ngo

With sadness in my heart and joy in my mind
I thought about the ghosts that we've left behind.
With everyone around telling us what to do
with deafening sound whisper "I love you."
The fire in your eyes-- may it never go out.
The sweetness of your tears make it feel like night.
I see no escape from the roles we always play
What do we have to prove on this judgement day

You're missing the whole point-- you're not my little pet
Don't throw away your life-- The game's not over yet
I do not own your soul--don't want you in a cage
I only want your heart to find that special place

You're mine now But you're not my sister
You're mine now But you're not my slave
You're mine But you're not my child
You're mine now But you're not my slave
You're mine now But you're not my slave

With sand in my heart and clouds in my head
I thought about us both and the lives we've led.
From pages in a book and pictures on a screen
We shape ourselves like clay from someone else's dream.
One second you are cast just like stones at my feet
But I am not a king please don't worship me.
With everyone around telling us what to do
With deafening sound whisper "I love you."

You're missing the whole point-- you're not my little pet
Don't throw away your life-- The game's not over yet
I do not own your soul--don't want you in a cage
I only want your heart to find that special place

You're mine now But you're not my sister
You're mine now But you're not my slave
You're mine But you're not my child
You're mine now But you're not my slave
You're mine But you're not my sister
You're mine now But you're not my slave
You're mine But you're not my child
You're mine now But you're not my slave
You're mine now But you're not my slave
You're mine now But you're not my slave
You're mine now But you're not my slave
