Selfish

Stop trying to teach me how to live.
My whole life's just fine. 1
You're just like all the rest, but no matter what
on distant shores, you may be great, but not here now.
 
I'm selfish.
You love me like that.
Connoisseurs.
They think they're fucked because of us.
Casting awkward glances.
But ya know, to us, they're the fucked up ones.
 
It's just the two of us again
crashing a party, singing as one,
The two of us together.
You can write down the words I sing.
But, you can hardly understand what's inside of me
and that's no lie.
Where were you went my life was going nowhere?
But suddenly I met you
and then my whole life started.
 
Stop it!
Take off the mask that you've become.
Stop it!
You're the dock where I moor my boat. 2
 
I'm selfish.
But sing with me again once more.
Together an encore.
Yeah, I'm wrong.
It's just a game, but come back soon. (x2)
 
Don't try to fix me
'cause your head's a mess.
Don't try to teach me,
'cause I'm anything but an idiot. (x2)
 
Baby, a lot of things have left me.
But, I never stopped believing in this love.
Music's my whole stinking life
Do what you want, bitch, but don't try to take that from me.
 
I wasn't like all the rest -
all the others who wanted to share your bed.
Swim with me to the Ark.
We'll float far away. 3
 
Stop it!
Take off the mask that you've become.
Stop it!
You're the dock where I moor my boat.
 
I'm selfish.
But sing with me again once more.
Together an encore.
Yeah, I'm wrong.
It's just a game, but come back soon. (x2)
 
  • 1. lit: 'on the beat'
  • 2. lit: 'where you are my pier'
  • 3. 'us no' is just fluff, and has no significant meaning in English, like the Russian ведь.
Thanks!

LOL. You don't have to walk on eggs with me. You can tell me the truth. Don't worry, I haven't been away because I was beaten down by criticism. I just had a really hectic time lately. So, you and everyone else can be honest. Hugs.

Are you kidding me? I always tell the truth
