  • It could mean your silence with my heart the word
    It's strong enough, so I've heard
    You've mistaken me for your masterpiece
    Gilding me, so I try

    Frame me fallen, take me as I come
    Or face the night alone
    These idle arms that know

    I can be bold
    Decorate me, adore me, baby
    But I can't be owned
    It's not part of my design
    I'll let you know
    When I need you to liberate me
    I'll hold my pose
    But I'm not your, I'm not your muse
    I'm not your, I'm not your muse

    He came back to me like he knew he would
    Didn't know the chance he took was one too far
    Only I can steal the God you've made of me
    Anyone else could see, it's in my palms

    Gets easier to grieve the morning sun
    To face the night alone
    These idle arms I hold

    I can be bold
    Decorate me, adore me, baby
    But I can't be owned
    It's not part of my design
    I'll let you know
    When I need you to liberate me
    I'll hold my pose
    But I'm not your, I'm not your muse
    I'm not your, I'm not your muse

    What have I got do
    Why give myself to lose
    You know me, disown me
    Come back to my start

    I can be bold
    Decorate me, adore me, baby
    But I can't be owned
    It's not part of my design
    I'll let you know
    When I need you to liberate me
    I'll hold my pose
    But I'm not your, I'm not your muse
    I'm not your, I'm not your muse
    I'm not your, I'm not your muse
    I'm not your, I'm not your Writer/s: Celeste Waite, Simon Aldred
