Life goes on from the dusk to the dawn.
From old song to new song
And you find yourself on the path you don't want to be on

I sing songs I don't like
To strangers every night.
They don't know me at all
And it's wrong

Sometimes I wish I never quit smoking
I had meaningful conversations back then
Don't think I'll ever stop drinking because of that
So fill your cup and spill your guts this second's all we have

And if the tears come you should own them
You should wear each one with pride
Cause I've been praying for so long
They were rolled down from my own eyes
Everyday I try to look at the bright side
I guess that I'm selfish for thinking about myself

Time stops a husband is taking
A two week old infant
With no father to raise him
Watch him become a man
In the worst of my struggles seem
To slip through my hands.
So mother would you take this advice?
There are some of us here
Who would like you to cry

And if the tears come you should own them
You should wear each one with pride
Cause I've been praying for so long
They were rolled down from my own eyes
Everyday I try to look at the bright side
I guess that I'm selfish for thinking about myself

I guess that I'm selfish for thinking about myself.
Yeah, I guess that I'm selfish for thinking about myself.
