“A Selfish Man” by Francis Lung – No Insights Here

      We have made no secret of the fact that a Wu Lyf concert in 2012 brought us one of our favorite concert memories. The performance of the song “We Bros” was electrifying. Unfortunately, the band members didn’t get along and soon split. We read that the recently released “A Selfish Man” by Francis Lung was written about the split. Hey, isn’t that Taylor Swift’s mode of song writing?
     We jumped on the song by Francis Lung, whose actual name is Tom McClung, ex-bassist of Wu Lyf. The genre doesn’t approach that of Wu Lyf, but that was the only insight into the inner circle of the dysfunctional band – McClung didn’t contribute heavily into their sound.
     Below is “We Bros” by Wu Lyf (trust us, it’s special when performed) and “A Selfish Man.”

Lyrics of “A Selfish Man”
Love again, go on
'Til dust and dawn
Ah they say you can’t come back
That’s why I never left
Ah they say you can’t come back
Babe that’s why I never left.
Never left.

You’ll never let me go
Dump me forever so
Give me what you can, give me another man.
But I don’t wanna know you,
Don’t wanna understand
I can’t let you go,
’cause I’m a selfish man!

When everything becomes too much
You have to leave the band
And it was not the plan
But I don’t wanna know you
Or wanna understand
I can’t let you go
’cause I’m a lover.

I said there was a full moon rising ahead
between death and life
And everything in between
Ah they say you can’t come back
That’s why I never left
Ah they say you can’t come back
Babe that’s why I never left

You’ll never let me go
Dump me forever so
Give me what you can, give me another man.
But I don’t wanna know you,
Don’t wanna understand
I can’t let you go,
’cause I’m a selfish man!

When everything becomes too much
You have to leave a band
And it was not the plan
But I don’t wanna know you
Or wanna understand
I can’t let you go
’cause I’m a lover.

’cause I’m a selfish man

I'll never let you go
Tell me forever so
Give me what you can
Give me another band
But I don’t wanna know you
Or wanna understand
I can’t let you go
’cause I’m a man.

When everything becomes too much
You have to leave the band
And it was not the plan.
But I don’t wanna know you
Or wanna understand
I can’t let you go
’cause I’m a lover.
Cause I'm a selfish man.
Do it again
(A selfish man)

Do it again!
