"Selfish" as written by Andreas Carlsson, Desmond Child and Chynna Phillips....
Bright lights and butterflies
I take my place tonight
Bright lights and butterflies
We drink to my demise
I've got this selfish craze
A lavish taste for a brightly lit stage
Infamous and famous they are one in the same
So we drink tonight
To my impending fame

You might deny it but you're tied to your desires
And you're selfish
Yeah you're selfish just like everyone else
You might deny it but you're tied to your desires
Yeah your selfish
Yeah your selfish just like everyone else

I've found the perfect disguise
Impossible charisma, charisma
The bright lights are shining in your eyes
Rock n' Roll honey and impossible charisma

You might deny it but you're tied to your desires
Oh your selfish
Yeah your selfish just like everyone else
You might deny it but you're tied to your desires
Yeah your selfish
Yeah your selfish just drink up

Yeah so drink up oh
Yeah so drink up oh

I am taken by the night time oh
I'm taken by the moonshine, moonshine
I am taken by the night time oh
I'm taken by the bright lights, bright lights

You might deny it but you're tied to your desires
Oh your selfish
Yeah your selfish just like everyone else
You might deny it but you're tied to your desires
Yeah your selfish
Yeah your selfish so drink up
Yeah your selfish
Yeah your selfish just like everyone else
Yeah your selfish
Yeah your selfish so drink up

    General CommentLet me be the first to say that this song is my favorite off the new album thus far. I'm having troubles connecting the different verses, but..

    some of the verses seem to be about how rock stars all seem to have so much charisma, but are really it's just a facade to hide deeper desires, which may or may not have something to do with the chorus.(?)

    General CommentI kind of agree with mesmith5, but i think its more about how, HE thinks that HE is like sooo good, and the girl will fall to his knees, cuz hes just that good, when he's doing the same to her.
