"Selfish" as written by Joshua Scott Chasez, Veit U. Renn and Jolyon W. Skinner....
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, yeah

You can call me selfish
But all I want is your love
And 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?
So what's wrong with being selfish?

I'll be taking up your time
Till the day I make you realize
That for you there could be no one else
I've just gotta have you for myself

Baby, I would take good care of you
No matter what it is you're going through
I'll be there for you when you're in need
Baby, believe in me

Cause if love was a crime
Then punish me, I would die for you
Cause I don't want to live without you
Oh, what can I do?

You can call me selfish
But all I want is your love
And 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?

Why do you keep us apart?
Why won't you give up your heart?
You know that we're 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
And you can call me hopeless, hopless
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?

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

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?
So what's wrong with being selfish, selfish, selfish?
So what's wrong with being selfish? Yeah

    General CommentThis song is one of the best NSYNC songs to me. Any song where Justin sings like that is worth listening to.
