Song Description

Love is an inherently selfless emotion, and giving in to love whole heartedly to many is a path wrought with doubt and peril. This man chooses to be alone - and as he begins to become aware of his decision, soon realizes that he has made a terrible choice

Lyrics

Selfish Thing
Words and Music by Michael Day
Copyright: Invisible Adversary Music ASCAP

If I could have remembered what I should have said
As you turned and closed the door
I would say that you are wonderful, incredible
I need you - you excite me,
My ?goodbye? was such a bore
You?re now the floor below me,
Distance growing
I can?t hold you back from growing ? no

Oh you selfish thing
Protect the one you love the most
Pass through the ones who love you ghost

I spend my lonely nights just wakelessly
Staring out into the murky half-light at the telephone by the bed
Convince myself that I will call you up
?I apologize; I know it?s late, but am I too late for a second chance?
Or am I on my third or fourth??
She?ll just ignore the number on her caller I.D.
Try to sleep, or spend some time with my old friend, the color T.V.

Oh you selfish thing
Protect the one you love the most
Pass through the ones who love you ghost

I?m better off alone
I?m better off without this in an instant
She?ll be telling all her friends just how we ended?
?He just wouldn?t give me time- I?m fine that selfish little boy
He just won?t let me in, or begin to say the things within his heart
Or start to figure out his endless drought the rain will never fall
He just won?t let me in begin to say the things within his heart

What if you want me when I?m gone?
What if you need me when you?re all alone?
What if you want me when I?m gone?
What if you need me when you?re all alone?
