iPhone 5 home button on a 5S?

I was wondering if it is possible to put an iPhone 5 home button on my 5s? I bought the phone used and the previous owner replaced the screen without saving the original home button, so Touch iD is not going to work again. I don't want to replace the ribbon cable (because I know that is not possible), but just the button itself.

Is this a good question?

No, the entire button assembly is designed differently, it won't fit in the first place, and you can't connect them electrically either.

Thank you very much ! Mine has taken on a much harsher tactile feel so I suspect it's checking out.
