Lyrics

Is it selfish of me to hold you tight
Before you turn away from these arms?
Is it selfish to ask a kiss goodnight
Before our wretched depart?

Is it harmful to cry on your shoulder, babe
Before I've said enough, and then you walk away
Please let my hands lay you down to sleep
I can't rest again until I've washed them clean

And I know you won't want me
When I've made my peace
But I love you too much to hide up my sleeve,
Is it selfish of me before you leave?

May I lend an ear
To learn our last words like a song
Before the dissonance settles, and I'm forced to carry on?
We let a good fire burn, now can I warm up my feet
Before they stumble in the dark forevermore?
Forevermore

And I know you won't want me
when I've made my peace
But I love you too much
To hide up my sleeve
Is it selfish of me?
