Not My Baby - INNA

The Experience: Not my baby now... I'm free but not unscathed...
The Vibe: Rebellion.
The Topic: Temptation. Toxic relationships.
The Value: Freedom.
The Tension: His touch was heaven (I fell hard and it hurt and he hurt me) VS. Don't really need it (But I'm never going back to him).

Music video: INNA lounges on a precarious stack of lawn chairs, literally covered in light and shadow, on the edge of falling. She has to choose. A second shot shows her in a garden of Eden toying with the biblical apple of temptation and deceiving serpent. She spends a lot of time torn between that light and shadow. But in the end she stands strong by the tree of life, free from temptation.

The Meaning of Not My Baby: INNA paints a regretful - I fell for those eyes one too many times - but still empowered - he's not my baby now - picture of temptation. Not My Baby breaks down what every poison has in common. Seductive: his touch was heaven. Harmful: every rose, it has its thorn before you know, you prick your finger. Deceitful: he knew exactly what to say to paint you only half the picture. And fickle: the kind that comes but never lingers. The one good thing? Not my baby now. You're free... as long as you stay away.

Ask yourself: Do you toy with temptation?

LYRICS:


It's not the way it was before
His touch was heaven, I remember
But every rose, it has its thorn
Before you know, you prick your finger

Two truths, one lie
Don't really need it
No, not tonight
Three words, nice try
Don't even mean it
It ain't a secret that

He's not my baby, my baby, my baby now
He's not my baby, my baby wouldn't let me down
I fell for those eyes one too many times, oh oh
He's not my baby, my baby, my baby now

I fell for those eyes one too many times, oh-oh
He's not my baby, my baby, my baby now

He was the perfect kinda rain (Kinda rain)
The kind that comes but never lingers
He knew exactly what to say (What to say)
To only paint you half the picture

Two truths, one lie
Don't really need it
No, not tonight
Three words, nice try
Don't even mean it
It ain't a secret... that

He's not my baby, my baby, my baby now
He's not my baby, my baby wouldn't let me down
I fell for those eyes one too many times, oh-oh
He's not my baby, my baby, my baby now

I fell for those eyes one too many times, oh oh
He's not my baby, my baby, my baby now

He's not my baby, my baby, my baby now
He's not my baby, my baby wouldn't let me down
I fell for those eyes one too many times, oh-oh
He's not my baby, my baby, my baby now

He's not my baby, my baby, my baby now
