Selfless
The Strokes Lyrics


Can the dark side light my way out? Yeah
Lay your hand across my face, yeah
Time we lost, that's all my fault

Please don't be long
'Cause I want your love
I don't have love
Without your arm
Life is too short
But I will live for you

How did this fit in your story? Yeah
Why'd you let them judge your body? Yeah
I'll be waitin' there outside, yeah

Please don't be long
'Cause I want your arms
I don't have fun
Without your love
Life is too short
But I will live for you
You're backin' off
But I will live for you, my selfless love

Bite my tongue, I wait my turn
I waited for a century
Waste my breath, no lessons learned
I turn and face the enemy
I'm not scared, just don't care
I'm not listenin', you hear?
He's never there, I don't care
I can't tell you what and where
Yeah
Yeah

One shot is never enough
I just wait for us to go in circles
A lifetime of giving my all for you
Hostile, give me a break
Two sips from my bottle and chill
And first he would tell me I'm his friend
Actually no thanks, I'm okay
Then he would send weird looks my way

I want new friends, but they don't want me
They're making plans while I watch TV
Thought it was you, but maybe it's me
I want new friends, but they don't want me

And the '80s song, yeah, how did it go?
When they said this is the beginning of the best years, even though
False
Break

One shot is never enough
I just wait for this to go into circles
And the distance from my room is anything so necessary
I was thinking about that thing that you said last night, so boring

And the '80s bands, where did they go?
Can we switch into the chorus right now?

I want new friends, but they don't want me
They have some fun, but then they just leave
Is it just them? Or maybe all me?
Why my new friends don't seem to want me

Hurts my case, but that's okay
It hurts my case, but that's okay
We're dancin' on a moonbeam
On and on and on and on and on

The deeper I get, the less that I know
That's the way that it go
The less that I know, the deeper I go
Juliet, I adore
The deeper I get, the less that I know
Diminishing returns, oh

All I wanna say
On another song
On another day
On another song
On another day
On another song
On another break
