Selfless, Cold and Composed

Original Artist: Ben Folds

I said what you wanted to hear and what I wanted to say,
So I will take it back,
And all of the dishes intact?
Let them be broken,
Broken.

It's easy to be easy and free,
When it doesn't mean anything,
You remain selfless, cold and composed.

You've done me no favour to call and be nice,
Telling me I can take anything I like,
You don't owe me to be so polite,
You've done no wrong,
You've done no wrong,
Get out of my sight.

It's easy to be easy and free,
When it doesn't mean anything,
To be selfless, cold and composed.

Come on baby now throw me a right to the chin,
Don't just stare like you never cared,
I know you did,
But you just smiled like a bank teller blankly telling me,
"Have a nice life."

Come on baby now throw me a right to the chin,
Just one sign that will show me that you give a shit,
But you just smile politely and I grow weaker,
And I said what you wanted to hear,
And what I wanted to say,
So I will take it back.

It's easy to be easy and free,
When it doesn't mean anything,
It doesn't mean anything,
You can take anything,
You can take anything,
You're so selfless, cold,
So selfless, cold,
So selfless, cold and composed.
