You're Being Selfish

It's been three days

You're being selfish

Since you said those three words

You're being selfish

And like a broken record

You're being selfish

Its plays over and over

You're being selfish

In my head

You're being selfish

Over and over

You're being selfish


It hurts to hear those words

You're being selfish

From you of all people

You're being selfish

You that I cared for, more than any other

You're being selfish

You that I loved deeply, more than any other

You're being selfish


Through all these days

You're being selfish

All these weeks, these months

You're being selfish

I did all that I can for you

You're being selfish

Sacrificed for you

You're being selfish

Never did I say to you

You're being selfish


But for you to say those words

You're being selfish

As easy as you said those words

You're being selfish

It hurts me

You're being selfish


And now I am left alone wondering

You're being selfish

Do I deserve this pondering

You're being selfish

The more you live, the more I die

You're being selfish

So tell me now do I deserve

You're being selfish

Those three words that I got served

You're being selfish


I'll take it as a wake-up call

You're being selfish

Of how I never hesitate always to give it my all

You're being selfish

And thank you for showing me

You're being selfish

How it is supposed to be

You're being selfish

I'll try my best and take care of me

You're being selfish

So the next time you'll say to me

You're being selfish

I'll take it in; I'll suck it in

You're being selfish

I'll say yes, I'm being selfish

You're being selfish

And so are you

You're being selfish

You're being selfish
