Jack White – Love Is Selfish Lyrics

Jack White – Love Is Selfish Lyrics

One, two, three, four

Love is such a selfish thing, it’s
Always crying, “Me, me, me,” and
It’s always trying to mess up all my plans
And I work real hard to make you understand
Yeah, I try my best to help you understand

I’ve been trying over the years to
Try and overcome these fears, but
Nothing I come up with proves I can
And I work real hard to make you understand
Yeah, I try my best to help you understand

I’m on a train, but I can not rest upon it
I’m on a train, but it won’t stay on the rails
And I’ve got a sailboat with her name painted on it
But I don’t know how to sail

Someone smarter than me and you might
End up solving a clue or two, but
Could they make it happen with their hands?
Can they build it up from nothing with their hands?
I could lose my mind just trying to understand

Love is such a selfish thing, it’s
Always crying, “Me, me, me,” and
It’s always trying to mess up all my plans
And I work real hard to make you understand
And I’ll try my best to help you understand
