What's Not Yours
Lyrics & Melody by Polly Wood  ©2012

 

WHAT'S NOT YOURS

There's a wisdom in the body 

and it knows what to do.

It is deeper, it is older 

than the problems that you can think through.

And its alright if you don't agree

I'm just here to sing what I see.

 

She is breathing, she is living, she is giving.

And we take more, and we take more, and we take more, and we take more.

 

Stop, stop pulling.  

Stop, stop raping.

Stop, stop taking what's not yours.

What's not yours.

 

There's a flow, if you let go

It will carry you along.

Like the fallen leaves, like a spider weaves

Like the first time you heard that song.

 

She is breathing, she is living, she is giving.

And its easy, be it easy, breathe it easy, yes its easy.

 

Stop, stop pushing.  

Stop, stop stressing.

Stop, stop carrying what's not yours.

What's not yours.

 

There is freedom in limitations

That's the word that I heard from the wise.

When you lose your map and your sailor's cap

And your path unfolds as the crow flies.

 

She is breathing, she is living, she is gving.

Just surrender, surrender, just surrender, surrender.

 

Stop, stop wishing.

Stop, stop waiting.

Stop, stop wanting what's not yours.

What's not yours.
