I just don't understand
Why you're running from a good man, baby
Why you wanna turn your back on love
Why you've already given up
See I know you've been hurt before
But I swear I'll give you so much more
I swear I'll never let you down
Cause I swear it's you that I adore
And I can't help myself, babe
Cause I think about you constantly
And my heart gets no rest over you, you you, yeah

You can call me selfish
But all I want is your love
You can call me hopeless, baby
Cause I'm hopelessly in love
You can call me unperfect
But who's perfect?
Tell me what do I gotta do
To prove that I'm the only one for you
What's wrong with being selfish

I'll be taking up your time
Til the day I make you realize
That for you there could be no one else
I just gotta have you for myself
Baby I would take good care of you
No matter what it is your going through
I'll be there for you when you're in need
Baby believe in me
Cause if love is a crime yeah
Then punish me
I would die for you
Cause I don't want to live without you
What can I do, oh

You can call me selfish
But all I want is your love
You can call me hopeless baby
Cause I'm hopelessly in love
You can call me unperfect
But who's perfect
Tell me what do I gotta do
To prove that I'm the only one for you
What's wrong with being selfish

Why do you keep us apart
Why won't you give up your heart
You know that were meant to be together

Why do you push me away
All that I want is to give you love
Forever and ever and ever

You can call me selfish
But all I want is your love
You can call me hopeless baby
Cause I'm hopelessly in love
You can call me unperfect
But who's perfect
Tell me what do I gotta do
To prove that I'm the only one for you
What's wrong with being selfish

Selfishly I'm in love with you
Cause I've searched my soul
And I know that it's true

Selfishly I'm in love with you
Cause I've searched my soul
And I know that it's you

Selfishly I'm in love with you
Cause I've searched my soul
And I know that it's you

To prove that I'm the only one for you
What's wrong with being selfish selfish selfish
So what's wrong with being selfish
