"Selfish" as written by Stephen Morris and Gillian Lesley Gilbert....
Someone I hate,
she think she's great unless you state the obvious.
You're next to me, entirely let's wait and see

Someone like you, selfish it's true
All you can do it's play to see entirely you disagree

No sense of reason, you think it's true
Why did you have to believe them?
No sense of reason,
What do I have to do?
There's no one else
You're deceiving

Sometimes it's true, forgiving you,
It's hard to do it's crystal clear,
(And it is) and not something
I can feel sure of

No sense of reason, you think it's true
Why did you have to believe them?
No sense of reason,
What do I have to do?
There's no one else.

    General CommentAfter hearing this for the first time in 1997 I asked why Gillian didnt do more singing before in New Order albums? I would have not mind one or two songs the way Martin Gore does for Depeche Mode.
