"My Selfish Heart" as written by and Meghan Trainor....
My selfish heart wasn't bit no good to you
At least not the way it intended to, woah
Your love was young, but it wound my old soul
When I said goodbye I wasn't ready, no oh
But I don't wanna waste your time
No, you deserve to find the love of your life
One day you'll marry such a lovely wife
And hopefully we'll be fine!
But baby let's keep in touch, ooh
'Cause I'm not what you need
But I'mma miss you so much
I'm too focused on this dream,
And your kiss is a drug that pulls me back so quick
Until I pull us apart, forgive my selfish heart

Hey, baby let's keep in touch
You got my number baby, go ahead and call it up
You got my number baby, go ahead and call it up
You got my number baby, go ahead and call it up
Go ahead and call it up, go ahead and call it up

You were the best, but I'm never gon' let you know
Each and every day you call me beautiful, hey
You deserve the world and soon the world's gon' come around
And it breaks my heart to have to let you down, yeah
But I don't wanna waste your time
No, you deserve to find the love of your life
One day you'll marry such a lovely wife
And hopefully we'll be fine!
Baby let's keep in touch, ooh
'Cause I'm not what you need
But I'mma miss you so much
I'm too focused on this dream,
And your kiss is a drug that pulls me back so quick
Until I pull us apart, oh forgive my selfish heart

Hey, baby let's keep in touch
You got my number baby, go ahead and call it up
You got my number baby, go ahead and call it up (Let's keep in touch)
You got my number baby, go ahead and call it up
Go ahead and call it up, go ahead and call it up

You got my number baby, go ahead and call it up
Sorry I couldn't make it work, I had to call it off
But you were the best in bed, yeah I can't deny
You overturn them and you're one of a kind
But I'm gone 'cause I be swerving (I be swerving)
I couldn't give you the time you were deserving
And I admit that I was stupid when I threw our love away
But I hope that we can still be okay

Baby let's keep in touch, ooh
'Cause I'm not what you need
But I'mma miss you so much
I'm too focused on this dream,
And your kiss is a drug that pulls me back so quick
Until I pull us apart, oh forgive my selfish heart

Hey, baby let's keep in touch, ooh
'Cause I'm not what you need
But I'mma miss you so much
I'm too focused on this dream,
And your kiss is a drug that pulls me back so quick
Until I pull us apart, oh forgive my selfish heart

Hey, baby let's keep in touch
You got my number baby, go ahead and call it up
You got my number baby, go ahead and call it up (Let's keep in touch)
You got my number baby, go ahead and call it up
Go ahead and call it up, go ahead and call it up

    Song FactThis song is about Meghan leaving a guy who is madly in love with her, but she has to turn him away, because she knows she can't give him what he really wants and needs. It's gonna hurt to be separated but ultimately it is going to be good for him, he has to let her go.
    The song also touches on how being in a relationship would keep Meghan back from giving it all to her career, and she is focused on making that happen in this period of her life.
