How Selfish of Me

how-selfish-of-me

It doesn't matter how much it hurts

I want you here

I don't how many tears fall

I want you here

Even if you feel like you can't handle one more second

I want you here

Even if you lost the will to hold your fake smile

I want you here

When the light at the end of the tunnel drifts away

I want you here


How selfish I must be

To watch you cry

To watch you hurt

To call myself your friend


It doesn't matter how much it hurts

I'll hug you until the pain is no more

Because I want you here

I don't care how many tears fall

I'll wipe them away time and time again

Because I want you here

Even if you feel like you can't handle one more second

I'll be by your side to prove you wrong

Because I want you here

Even if you lost the will to hold your fake smile

I'll smile wide enough for both of us

Because I want you here

When the light at the end of the tunnel drifts away

I'll guide you with the light from my torch

Because I need you here
