SAINt JHN – Selfish lyrics

[Intro]
I wish we were both somebody else
So you wouldn't be somebody else's
I don't wanna lay here by myself
Ain't afraid to say I'm selfish

[Verse 1]
Don't wanna lie to you, don't wanna promise something
Knowin' I can't come through, toast over this discussion
More of ignoring the rules, too close, and then we're touching
Now we're both confused, well I know

[Pre-Chorus]
Something in the way you smell
Something in the way you touch me
Maybe it's the way you wrap your arms around
Makes me wanna' lay you down, and tell you all the things we could be
Tell me that you need me now, oh even though it's not allowed

[Chorus]
I wish we were both somebody else
So you wouldn't be somebody else's
I don't wanna lay here by myself
Hope you forgive me darlin', I'm selfish
I wish we were both somebody else
So we wouldn't be somebody else's
I don't wanna lay here by myself
Ain't afraid to say I'm selfish

[Verse 2]
Window to my soul, I know you know my weakness
Arms folded, both eyes closed, won't tell no one your secrets
Some things we can't control, you leave me with no defense
Only thing I know, is I'm yours

[Pre-Chorus]
Something in the way you smell
Something in the way you touch me
Maybe it's the way you wrap your arms around
Makes me wanna lay you down, and tell you all the things we could be
Tell me that you need me now, oh even though it's not allowed

[Chorus]
I wish we were both somebody else
So you wouldn't be somebody else's
I don't wanna lay here by myself
Hope you forgive me darlin', I'm selfish
I wish we were both somebody else
So we wouldn't be somebody else's
I don't wanna lay here by myself

[Verse 3]
'Cause I'm yours, I'm in too deep now
Don't let me breathe, your love won't be found
My everything, you're all I need now
'Cause I'm lost without you, and no one loves me now
'Cause I'm yours, I'm in too deep now
Don't let me breathe, your love won't be found
My everything, you're all I need now
'Cause I'm lost without you, and no one loves me now

[Outro]
I wish we were both somebody else
So you wouldn't be somebody else's
I don't wanna lay here by myself
Ain't afraid to say I'm selfish
