Lyrics

Selfless

Written By: ShawnLee


Selfless
(chorus)

I've been so selfless for you,
and you don't appreciate it
tell me how much more can i do
to get this through to you
I've been to selfless for you
and you don't notice me
tell me how much more can i do
to make you happy

(Verse1)

I'm stressed out
tryna find the words to make you stay
your edgy
threatening to sink my battle ship
don't tempt me
in and out and i don't know where you've been
if this is a test
then I already past

You know I try not to complain
when you leave up the toilet seat
I cook
I clean
I watch your kids
And I pretend to like your friends
I don't care who is on your phone
I'm not insecure at all
You have my time
I give you space
There will never be another me
Once I leave you

(chorus)

(verse2)

Don't blame me
If I question your motives
Just answer
You won't let me in
To see if I am your ever after
If I find out
This was all for nothing
Big mistake
You've never seen
A women scorn
Til you have tested me

You know I try not to complain
When you stay out all night till day
I drive
I spend
And I pretend
to like ESPN
I'm fed up with all of your flaw's
This games you play ain't a sport
You've had my time
I want my space
There will never be another me
Once I leave you

(chorus)

(bridge)

Can I (repeat)

Give love where its not given
walk into a fallen building
Place a bet that I know I wont win
Change the odds
Red OR black
Roulette
Head split

(chorus)
