Such a Selfish Thing

I could beg you to stay
but I love you too much
to make you do something
if you don’t want to

My soul may skip all the beats
when you walk away from me
but true love ain’t a one way street
my broken heart, such a selfish thing

I could show you how much more
I smile when you’re with me
I could dance so much floor
my happiness almost deplored

My soul may skip all the beats
when you walk away from me
but true love ain’t a one way street
my broken heart, such a selfish thing

My favorite moments ebb so quietly
with memory imprisoning, so embracingly
as I recall the smile our eyes read
to a first kiss that bled for everything

Distance in time, in space, in grace
wished meaningless as ever I remember you
memory is such a beautiful dream
but holds no candle to the real thing

My soul may skip all the beats
when you walk away from me
but true love ain’t a one way street
my broken heart, such a selfish thing
