I just realized that I’m selfish today
and tomorrow I’ll probably be the same.
I find that every night I pray
that your life is exciting and never lame.
That you be happy and content with life
that darkness never shade your way
That joy overtake the hardship and strife
Why this makes me selfish, I’ll begin to explain…
I just want you to be happy, I sincerely do
And that you find the one that makes you feel that way
By, to you and himself, being forever true
Knowing you already found him, and I dare to say:
It’s me you say you haven’t found!
It’s me the one that’s always been around
to make you smile
and let you say
“This world is wild
but it’ll be okay.”
So I am selfish.
But that’s just how sure I am
That you’ll be happy here with me.
