"Important" as written by Clif Magness and Lisa Marie Presley....
Maybe if I liked being alone
I could give you your life back and let you go
Maybe if I got it together again
I wouldn't be belligerent and such a princess
Maybe the reason I got needy is because I never had real devotion
Maybe I criticized your loyalty because it wasn't given to me

Do you know who I am
It's me in here with the doctor and the crowd around me
They are my chosen family
Tell me I'm important
But what about them standing there they don't get it
They're smiling at me, I guess they're used to this

Maybe I'll stop wondering when I'm gonna die
Maybe then I'll stop holding so hard to my life
Maybe next time I see my reflection my mind won't be with me
Maybe my brutal honesty is only because I can get away with it
Maybe I'll squash you relentlessly because you tried to crush me

Do you know who I am
It's me in here with the doctor and the crowd around me
They are my chosen family
I guess you're not important
But what about you standing there you can't get in
You're smiling at me, I guess you're used to this

Please get out of my way I don't like fucking waiting
You need to bring me my food first
I'm not the one you want to starve
And maybe you think you're my friend
And maybe one day you'll give a shit about what I am

Do you know who I am
It's me in here with the doctor and the crowd around me
They are my chosen family
Tell me I'm important
But what about you standing there you can't get in
You're smiling at me, I guess you're used to this
