Why Do I Have To Be Selfish?

Sometimes I wish
I said everything  
That I thought
 
But that's not me
 
I don't ask for things
Or invitations  
Or what I want
 
I just can't  
 
I just wish others
Could think what I do
Cause I'm dying here
 
But I won't ask you to cheer me up
 
I feel selfish
Whenever I say things
That would benefit me
 
It feels wrong, so I don't say them
 
'Could you guys spend time with me?'
'Can you take me to see that movie I really want to see?'
'Could you actually be proud of my work?'
 
I won't say anything like that
 
If I did
I'd hate myself for it
So I wait to see if it actually happens
 
But of course I know it won't
