Selfish Like You

from by Kelly English

lyrics

Hidden beneath what you believe,
Loving you got away from me
Like trains down the line
And cars down the street
Come Tell Mama everything

Like where it hurts,
And did you get burned
From flying too close to the sun

But baby my love, lovely my dear
Hold me now ‘cause soon I’ll disappear

But who’s gonna love you when I stop?
It is a tall job that just I can do
Because I don’t want them to, no
I'm selfish like you

You had a gun
And each word you spoke
Left bullet holes, bullet holes

But my love’s a bookend
If you were looking to get
Something in the middle understood

But who’s gonna love you when I stop?
It is a tall job that just I can do
Because I don’t want them to, no
I’m selfish like you

But who’s gonna love you when I stop?
It is a tall job that just I can do, do
I don’t want them to, no
I’m selfish like you

Who's gonna love you when I stop?
It is a tall job that just I can do
Because I don't want them to, no
I'm selfish like you
