"Selfish" as written by Manuel Lonnie Jr. Seal and Jamosa Lan....
(Lisa Lindebergh/Andreas Karlegard)

Impossible vain
You told me I was totally without shame
I thought to myself
This kind of luck is my middle name
Boy you need to know
Sometimes I think I'm out of my head
The bigger the words
The stranger I feel
So give me a chance to explain
And erase all bad things
I've said

You tell me I'm selfish,delirious
That's not what I am
I tell you I'm speechless,Do do do do
You know who I am
I've got a little sparkle,Do do do do
Inside of me
And you tell me I'm selfish,delirious

In between days
I wanna paint a rainbow
To cover all the gray
In between days
I wanna kiss and tell to end
This game we play
I wish you could read my mind

You tell me I'm selfish,delirious
That's not what I am
I tell you I'm speechless,Do do do do
You know who I am
I've got a little sparkle,Do do do do
Inside of me
And you tell me I'm selfish,delirious

Tell me do you cry
I cry all the time
Tears that are turning to ice
I cry
Sparkle come alive
Sparkle that melt I

I wish you could read my mind

You tell me I'm selfish,delirious
That's not what I am
I tell you I'm speechless,Do do do do
You know who I am

    Impossibly vain
    You told me I was totally without shame
    I thought to myself
    This kind of luck is my middle name
    Boy you need to know
    Sometimes I think I'm out of my head
    The bigger the words
    The stranger I feel
    So give me a chance to explain
    And erase all bad things
    I've said

    (Chorus)
    You tell me I'm selfish (selfish), delirious
    That's not what I am
    I tell you I'm speechless, Do do do do
    You know who I am
    I've got a little sparkle, Do do do do
    Inside of me
    And you tell me I'm selfish, delirious

    In between days
    I wanna paint a rainbow
    To cover all the gray
    In between days
    I wanna kiss and tell to end

    I wish you could read my mind

    Tell me do you cry
    I cry all the time
    Tears that are turning to ice
    I cry
    Sparkle come alive
    Sparkle that melt I

    I wish you could read my mind

    [Chorus]

    Selfish
    (that's not what I am)
    That's not what I am
    (that's not what I am)
    That's not what I am

    (selfish)
    (that's not what I am)
    (selfish)
    (that's not what I am)
    (selfish)
