A Selfish Woman: Songs Lyric

180410110212/D

Summary: A woman who could not marry her boyfriend; she believes that she is a good person in her own way.

It is wonderful how you can speak right to my mind

Without a feeling of love you can touch my heart

Try as I may I will never rewind

What I hear when you tell me the truth

(Reff)

The voice will you say

Lets me know that you tell me

There is a truth I expect

Saying you will take me on

Here you come my love one, I will hug you

Wherever you are

You say it best,

When I give you nothing at all

All day long we just see people talking out loud

I want to be quiet

And you still into it?

Try as I may, we can never deny

What’s been said between your heart and mine

(Reff)

The voice will you say

Lets me know that you tell me

There is a truth I expect

Saying you will take me on

Here you come my love one

I will hug you

Wherever you are

You say it best,

When I give you nothing at all

(Reff)

The voice will you say

Lets me know that you tell me

There is a truth I expect

Saying you will take me on

Here you come my love one

I will hug you

Wherever you are

(Reff)

The voice will you say

Lets me know that you tell me

There is a truth I expect

Saying you will take me on

Here you come my love one

I will hug you

Wherever you are

You say it best,

When I give you nothing at all

There is something wrong with my relationship

He asked me what do I perceive to people’s life?

I answered what I see is never what I get (1)

I say it best,

When you gave me the ring

I say it best,

You wanted to marry me

The smile on your face

And I had no choice,

When I give you nothing at all

I smile people laugh

I cry people hug

I say it best,

That you are not the one for me

I say it best,

When I just looking around to people’s happiness

I say it best,

When you go living without me in it

You say bad words,

You could not believe what I said

You say bad words,

When you asked, “Do you want me to leave you?”

I say it best,

When you wanted me to be his lovely wife

I say it best,

When you said you loved me

I say it best,

Because I hardly believe in someone

I say it best,

I am a perfect observer and I enjoy it

I say it best,

I am grateful for everything so that I could not marry you

I say it best,

I do not want to hurt you

Try as I may I will never rewind

What I hear when you tell me the truth

The voice will you say

Lets me know that you tell me

There is a truth I expect

Saying you will take me on

Here you come my love one

I will hug you

Wherever you are

You say it best,

When I give you nothing at all

    Well, great song. I can not guess what the message in this song. Are you angry? Or do want to let her go with all the principles which he choose?.
    Sometimes women could not guess what she wants, but actually that’s a lie.
    You tell that she is a selfish woman. But I did not catch the anger in the lyrics of your song, which is good.
    It’s interesting. It seems that any event which makes you surprised or even makes you happy can be a song lyric.
    That’s all my comments. By the way, I think you do your best.

  2. Thank you for the feedback :), I really appreciate that. No, I did not feel angry when I wrote this lyric. And yes, I just want her and “the man” to let it go, I create her character as a “kind” person in her own way, not in the man way, or not for the best way of they both. Why I am titled this songs “A Selfish Woman”, because if I become “the man”, I will be very angry to her, and I will say her “a selfish woman”; she didn’t want her ex-boyfriend to be her mine, someone that will make her life is better in the future. Oh yes, I like your statment that women could not guess what she wants, it is a fact.

    Yes, it’s a great song and easy to listen. After I read the lyrics and listen the song, I can feel and understand the intention of the woman. Of course, because I am also a woman. As a woman sometimes is difficult to express something, and it’s hard to understand what she really wanted. One thing that I know is when women say ‘no’, it means ‘yes’. Hmm and I agree with you to give the title of the song A Selfish Woman, because of the way she chose had hurt the feelings of the man she loved.

    I like the lyrics because is so easy to understand yet very touching. The choice of words in the making of this song is suitable, it does not look so long despite having 529 words. the selection of an appropriate title that describes the overall content of the story, as an example of pieces of the lyrics ’When you asked, “Do you want me to leave you? I say it best, when you wanted me to be his lovely wife, I say it best“,‘ those are tell that she wants to do whatever they pleased without listening to other people’s opinions of what is best for her, and she decided not to use all reasonable thought, but by the desire of her heart. That’s what women usually do, put feelings.

    In my opinion, the chorus of this song many repeated. Maybe, if the lyrics of the chorus of this song there is a changed, then it will be better. Actually, I love the lyrics of this song. The meaning of the lyrics of this song are very touching or hit in the hearts. Conflict that are built also makes me strained. In addition, the lyrics of the song are also unique and not boring. Perhaps, the conclusion that I can take of this song is, we should be able to realize and accept the fact that there are things that we can not force it. Sometimes, letting him go would be much better. Although I do not know, whether the lyrics of this song from a true story or just imagination, but this song has succeeded in making me drift into the atmosphere.

    • Thanks for your feedback :). Yes, I know my song is many repeated in some sentences, but I thought that this is the best way, because I made some alternative sentences and the result is; my alternative sentences did not fit in the music, it was weird and upset the plot of this song as a whole. Hahaha it just my imagination, I am inspired from ‘When You Say Nothing At All’; Ronan Keating’ video cilp.

  6. I will comment about woman in this song. in my opinion, As a woman, I think she is not selfish but I think maybe just a woman who has no principles and not sure with his choice. I mean not sure with his boyfriend. So that makes his boyfriend thinks his girlfriend selfish. Because I think most men are confused of the behavior of women and misunderstand with their attitude. But I like your idea of the story.
