Barger Publishing {ASCAP} 2002

Desperation led me to this place
And now I have to face the fact
That I dealt this hand

Consequences that have buried me
And now it?s time to see
The reasons I made you sad

I?ve got no time on my side
I?ve used up all nine of my lives
I need you but I?ve got my pride
I?m sinking slow

In my Selfish Sadness

Can you raise from this bitter state
I want to float away
I?d like to leave us as friends

I justified the many times I lied
You?re never satisfied
I covered you in my sins

The past is a sweet summer cloud
The present a gun in my mouth
A coward who knows the way out
Still I?m lying here

In my Selfish Sadness
My Selfish Sadness

I hear there?s a light in my heart
But right now I don?t feel a spark
So leave me alone in the dark
I?m laying here

In my Selfish Sadness
My Selfish Sadness
My Selfish Sadness
