Gerry Rafferty – Unselfish Love lyrics

I've got a woman, and she's so good to me
She broke into my heart, and she still holds the key
She's the only one I know, who ever really gave to me
Unselfish love, unselfish love, unselfish love.

I used to run around so fancy free
But all those crazy nights just drained my energy
Well I was thinking only of myself, like a fool I could not see
Her unselfish love, unselfish love, unselfish love.

Now everybody wants to share real love and understanding
Life without it can seem tragic
But when there is someone you love
And they give you real love in return
Well you know life can be magic.

She can turn my whole world upside down (up, down, and around)
She's the one who keeps my feet on solid ground
I never knew just what I had before but now I know I've found
Unselfish love, unselfish love, unselfish love (yeah)

Now everybody wants to share real love and understanding
Life without it can seem tragic
But when there is someone you love
And they give you real love in return
Well you know life can be magic.

When I'm feeling low down negative (still runnin' away)
And I know I've got to change the way I live
She just shakes her head and wonders
If I'll ever learn to give
Unselfish love, unselfish love, unselfish love (yeah)

Unselfish love
(I've got a woman and she's so good to me)
(yes she broke into my heart, and she still holds the key)
(when I'm feeling low down negative from the way I live)
She gives me reason (she just shakes her head and wonders if I'll ever learn to give)
Unselfish love (I've got a woman and she's so good to me)
She never worries (yes she broke into my heart, and she still holds the key)
